Does keeping a window open really kill germs?
Hi! My brother has been sick with a cold and flu and someone at work told me that if you keep a window open that it will kill the germs and get the germs out or something like that? Anyway, is this really true?
Cold and flu viruses can survive in cold conditions and when humidity is low because they take up residence in the nasal passages, about 91 degrees F, and because low humidity creates dry membranes making it easier for viruses to take hold. About the open window -- not true.
Some folks think opening windows to "air" out a house after an illness will help but opening a window to "kill germs" isn't going to work.
No - this is not true. The only way to kill germs is with a virucide which mostly only hospitals use.
not realy but an inclosed warm room is a breeding ground for many nasties and fresh air is always good
so it wont kill them but it will slow them down
also hanging an oinion cut in half traps bacteria
NO but keeping windows shut 24/7 helps them breed within the closed atmosphere, and if the air is moisture rich, it makes it even more of a breeding ground for viruses and bacterium.
