Tips for Keeping Your Family Healthy this Flu Season, your Houston Pool Builder

Flu Season
This has been such a hard winter this year all over the country, even in Houston, TX!!  The Pool Man, Inc., your Houston Pool Builder, wants you to protect your swimming pool pipes and equipment from this hard freeze, but more importantly, we want you to take care of yourself and your family. The CDC (Centers for Disease Control) has predicted that the 2013-2014 influenza season is going to be a rough one.  The height of flu season is not yet upon us, so there is still time to prepare.  Here are some helpful tips to get you through:
  1. Get your flu shot (please consult with your doctor first to see if you are a good candidate for the flu shot)
  2. Wash your hands thoroughly and often (Sing the “Happy Birthday Song” while rubbing the soap on your hands and rinsing in warm water to remove all germs.)
  3. Avoid people who are coughing and sneezing.
  4. Stay home and in bed if you are sick – exposing others to your sickness is what keeps it alive
  5. Sanitize countertops, door handles and any other surface that comes in contact with hands and coughs or sneezes.  (Don’t forget to wipe down the TV remote!)
  6. Get plenty of rest – if you are tired, your body is more susceptible to catching something.
  7. Drink plenty of clear fluids – helps to keep you hydrated and flush out any impurities
