Easy Ways to Go Green Around the House

Appraise yourself of the last pest controller visit date and the contents of the report. Ensure that all points from the report are auctioned.

3.2 Ensure there is proper insect screening on any open windows or doorway says

3.3 Check when you (or the pest controller) last changed the UV lamps in your fly killer machine. If this was done more than 12 months ago ensure, place an urgent order for more. Most companies that sell fly killers will provide an overnight delivery surface of new lamps and for that matter replacement fly killers.

3.4 Ensure that fly killers are fitted with uvb lamp for vitiligo if you are preparing open food. Also ensure that the fly killers are not directly above food

3.5 Look for any evidence of rodent infestation. If any is found and the traps are functioning, call the pest control company. Most will come out at short notice

4. Housekeeping

4.1 Check your orders of cleaning supplies such as anti-bacterial hand-wash. The last thing you need is to run out of any such products when the EHO visits

4.2 there must be a cleaning schedule and some form of inspection, as well as records to show that the cleaning and inspections were carried out

4.3 Ensure that cleaning chemicals are all labeled. If any labels have come off, either apply your own label if you can identify what it is, or dispose of the chemical responsibly. Ensure that cleaning tools, cloths and chemicals are away from food and also ensure that cloths used for food preparation surfaces are not mixed with cloths and mops used for the floor

4.4 Ensure that all food is labeled and has a use-by date where appropriate. It is vital that at least one person on site knows the history of all food o the premises. If the EHO finds a full container in the fridge labeled ‘mayo’ with no other information and nobody can tell him or her how long it has been there or how it got to be there, then this will be a black mark against your establishment

An EHO visit can give you some commercial advantage. Apart from the obvious one of not appearing in court for some misdemeanor there is the fact that you will be left alone to get on with running your business. In some jurisdictions, where a ‘scores-on-doors’ system operates, a successful EHO inspection may bring in more business.

So, without further ado, I present to you The Home Know-It-All’s Top 15 Ways to Go Green around Your Home (in order from easiest to accomplish to hardest-although I’d say they’re all pretty darn easy).
