When life gets busy, it can seem impossible to find the motivation to clean after a long day. Still, it needs to be done.
In this week’s blog post, we’re sharing the top 5 benefits of cleaning your home regularly – helping to keep you healthy, both physically and mentally.
1. Reduces Allergies
To help reduce your allergy triggers (dust and other allergens), regular cleaning is a must.
You can help prevent these triggers by sweeping, dusting, and vacuuming at least two or three times a week, with a deep clean every two weeks-allowing you to have fewer symptoms and to breathe easier.
2. Lowers Stress Levels
A clean home can help to reduce your stress, which can help improve your mental and physical health.
According to Psychology Today, NiCole R. Keith, Ph.D. who’s a professor at Indiana University, found the following during a study: “People with clean houses are healthier than people with messy houses.”
Even doing simple tasks like the dishes, making your bed in the morning, sweeping/vacuuming, and putting items away as you go, can reduce your everyday stress, leading to better overall health.
3. Getting Rid of Dangerous Microbes
Sanitizing your home is key to keeping you and your family healthy, especially right now with COVID-19 and Cold & Flu Season.
By cleaning your home with disinfecting agents, you’re killing the bacteria and viruses that can make you sick.
Focus on doorknobs, countertops, the kitchen, the bathroom, light switches, and other high traffic areas in your home.
4. Say Goodbye to Pests
Pests like mice or rats, cockroaches and other bugs can hide and multiple in messy homes.
Having a regular cleaning schedule, cleaning dishes daily, and putting food away can help to reduce the chances of these pests coming into your home in the first place.
5. Feeling Accomplished
Being able to check items off your to-do list gives you a sense of accomplishment and a boost of energy to keep going.
Create a list of items that need to be done and prioritize them accordingly to your current needs-ensuring you can get the more important items done first.
