In line with the announcement on “Enhanced Community Quarantine”, work from home and stay at home are the critical steps we should all try to comply with.
The important issue now is the quality of air inside our homes. Airborne pollutants and bacteria trapped inside the air-conditioning system are continually recycled and thus, exposing us to unhealthy air quality. Moist and damp aircon units are the breeding ground for both bacteria and fungus. The recycled and polluted air inside the units passes bacteria to all present in the room.
Excelsia Technologies developed a non-toxic anti-bacterial treatment system, BactaKleen, which can effectively kill 99.99% of germs hiding in our AC systems, even in those hard to reach ducting and vents. Tested by world’s recognized laboratories like SGS and TUV, their delivery method works efficiently, saves both time and money by covering a wide area with one application. By targeting the AC system, they are able to effectively administer our treatment for rooms and spaces – no matter how big or small. By using their Ultra Mist Fumigation machine, they are able to discharge millions of anti-bacterial nano-sized particles into your AC system, immediately giving you fantastic results that you can feel and breathe.
With the emergence of new COVID-19, H1N1, SARS, HFMD, and other viruses and sicknesses that are as harmful to our health, we really should clean the air we breathe inside our homes. When I had my house done, we didn’t even need to leave the house because BactaKleen is plant-based and non-toxic. Owner Hazel Go shared with me the other products of their company like BactaKleen Ultra Mist that kills bacteria and fungus, Odor Killer effectively kills bacteria and mildew that causes foul odors, Germ Buster for easy sanitizing and Bactasheild Basic for all spaces. Since all Bactakleen products are made with Botanical Extracts, they products are safe for every member of the family, expectant moms, babies, kids, plants and even your pets.
BactaKleen is good for three-months after their treatment. It is so assuring that your home is at least free from bacteria that can harm your family. Check out their Instagram or Facebook page @BactakleenPh or their website www.bactakleen.com.
Now that your home is bacteria free, you could use your quarantine time to improve the interiors of your place and do some spring cleaning as well. With the remaining days at home, set a couple of hours a day for tidying up your place using the KonMari Method.
KonMari Method is pro organizer Marie Kondo’s minimalism-inspired approach to tackling your stuff category-by-category rather than room-by-room. The goal of the KonMari Method is to have a house full of items that spark joy.
There are six basic rules to get started. Commit yourself to tidying up. Imagine your ideal lifestyle. Finish discarding first. Before getting rid of items, sincerely thank each item for serving its purpose. Tidy by category, not location. Follow the right order. And lastly, ask yourself if it sparks joy!
The five categories to tackle are clothes, books, papers, komono (a.k.a. miscellaneous items) and sentimental items.Kondo has you start by removing everything out of your closets and drawers (category one), all the books off your shelves (category two), all the paperwork out of your desk and bins, etc.
The intention of the KonMari method is to end up with a clutter-free home that is better able to bring more joy and prosperity to your life. While tidying, she encourages you to visualize the life you want to live. Anything that won’t help on that journey isn’t deserving of your space or you, she says.
Other suggestions for enhancing your interiors include going through your camera roll and pick favorite pics from the past year and make a photo book or order framed versions online. To pass the time, do virtual museum tours online or listen to operas that are being performed for free. Make a list of museums you wish to visit when we are out of quarantine. You may check out the BenCab Museum in Baguio City. I’m glad I was able to visit and have a grand tour by National Artist BenCab himself last month.
Stay safe in your homes!
