Back to School
The carefree part of summer has been fun while it lasted, but it’s time for colleges and universities to open their doors for a new school year. Colleges and universities generally begin classes sometime after August 20. That means you have just a little over a month to prepare to send your young adult off on their college adventure.
This year we have to concern ourselves not only with allergies but Covid-19 virus is still a concern. Yes, it's a challenge but you can do this.
Make sure they have a zippered mattress cover for their dorm room mattress and zippered covers for their pillows. You also should consider adding a mattress pad for added comfort and protection. Let's face it, you have no idea how old or how well that mattress has been taken care of.
Traditionally, dorm beds have been long twin size (39" x 80") but in the last few years more and more student housing has full size (54" x 75") size beds. Be sure to check with the school on the size including the thickness BEFORE you go so you get the proper size.
Sanitize and Clean
With all the fear and concerns about Covid-19, it is important they keep their space clean. We recommend, besides normal cleaning, they spray Goldshield™ 75 Antimicrobial surface spray throughout the entire space. One spray is all it takes on most surfaces, to provide an "invisible" protective shield for up to 90 days.
If they have an air cleaner in their bedroom at the house and send it away with them. It will do them far more good in their dorm room than it will be running in their empty bedroom at your house.
If not, the Aeris aair lite Smart Air Purifier is a great choice. Powerful and has a small footprint. Also, the Airfree P3000 air purifier is perfect for dorm rooms (they don't have filters that need to be replaced)
