Parasite Prevention: General House Cleaning

Parasites originally start growing and breeding when there are 3 things to drive it:

  1. An environment suitable for them to live in. A place that isn’t cleaned regularly.
  2. A vector/route, in other words, a living being (animal or person) that carries the parasite in their organs or on their body.
  3. A host or destination that gets infected with the parasite and gets sick.


The most effective way to control parasites from growing or spreading is a strict combination of personal hygiene, basic health education, and environmental sanitation.


They can be stopped by basic hygienic actions taken at home that would decrease the chance of their presence in the environment and on any of the family members living there. A few rubbish bins that are strictly for all the rubbish gathered from the household to minimize the number of germs around the house. Regular cleaning of the house (especially the bathrooms) is essential for stopping parasites in general and stopping any other types of germs as well. Finally, regular hand washing is essential because even if young parasites were on your skin, this might be a quick way to wash them off before they go into the skin or start growing.
