Cleaning your home isn't just to keep up appearances. There are also some major health benefits to maintaining a clean home, which you have probably been unaware of. However, sometimes you may need a little push to get started in regular cleaning habits. Here are some of the most important health benefits of maintaining a clean house, to get you started on a happier, healthy lifestyle.
Lower stress levels
It is no news that visual clutter can lead to mental clutter. You may believe that you've adapted to live with a bit of mess here and there, but having this unnecessary clutter may be affecting you more than you realise. Studies have shown that stress levels can actually be linked to the space you live in, so it is important to regularly clear away the clutter. Tackling your outstanding to-dos will definitely help you control stress levels. After all, we could all benefit from reduced stress in our busy everyday lives.
This fact is simple but true. Getting the motivation to get up and clear your house actually has added health benefits. Cleaning your entire home will make you be more active, and what’s more than getting a clean house and improved fitness at the end of it? By no means is a full house clean going to burn as many calories as a workout at the gym, but you will definitely improve your physical health more than just sitting down on your sofa all day. Health magazines have actually put together a great list of 10 easy chores that you can do around the house, whilst burning 100 calories each. This is a great way to kill two birds with one stone.
Maintaining a nice, clean home will provide fewer spaces for bacteria to grow. If you want to keep yourself and your family healthy then cleaning your home is a priority. You can ensure a hygienic house by cleaning with one of our Home Starter Kits, which includes 2 of our original and most versatile cloths and a water spray. Our cloths will effortlessly remove grease and dirt, whilst removing 99% of bacteria, using just water. We highly recommend this product if you are looking for something effective and eco-friendly.
If dust and allergens are left over time, they can build up in your carpets, bed sheets and upholstery, which can actually contribute to asthma and a number of different allergies. To ensure that this isn't the case, vacuum thoroughly and then proceed to cleaning. You can do this with a cloth or wipe.
Being organised with your cleaning schedule will be sure to keep you busy and productive. Being disorganised makes it easy to distract yourself and procrastinate. Sticking to a clear schedule with your cleaning will make it a lot easier to get the important things done, and your mind will find the process a lot easier to start.
