While this is often the case, the global Coronavirus pandemic persists as cases continue to surge, bringing into question the pros and cons of gathering. While different groups hold differing opinions about the danger level of COVID-19, one thing remains true, and that is that we all as a collective need to take the steps necessary to ensure the health of not only our loved ones but everyone we can protect. That being said, the team at DFW Disinfecting in the DFW Metroplex wants to ensure that you are aware of the negative effects of ignoring COVID-19 regulations, and how large gatherings can make way for contagion.

Increased Risk for Infection

As one of the major concerns from gathering, larger groups means a larger possibility of infection. As we continue to creep into the chilliest months of the year, keep in mind that viruses and contagions actually thrive in cold, dry air, which explains why the flu always spikes in the wintertime. Further, contagions and bacteria can live on surfaces and in the air for longer periods of time than one might expect, meaning that even though you may not be showing signs or symptoms of being ill, you could still spread the disease. In fact, the coronavirus has an incubation period of 14 days, meaning that if you unknowingly came into contact with someone who was positive for it even a week before Christmas, you did not show any signs and attended a gathering, then later got sick, you have effectively exposed every person who attended.

Disinfecting Services

Keeping you and your family safe is your top priority, and if you are hosting a holiday gathering this year, taking the steps necessary to decrease the chances of infection is crucial. One solution you can pursue is having all surfaces in your home disinfected. Our team offers electrostatic treatment, in which the applicator is positively charged to deliver a full-360 spray of EPA-registered safe disinfectant. The positive charge creates a covalent bond, meaning that the solution will stick to surfaces and provide a barrier from viruses, bacteria, allergens, and more.

Other Steps You Can Take

In addition to disinfecting and sanitizing solutions, there are a few steps you can take to decrease the chances of contagion spread. Following COVID-19 regulations that are in place actually plays a significant role in reducing infection rates. This means that if you are gathering, ensure the group consists of no more than 10 people, and wear face coverings at all times when applicable.
