Why cleaning your space is good for your health!
Updated: Mar 24
Keeping things clean and organised is good for you, and science can prove it!
The truth is that a dirty house accumulates bacteria, germs and bugs; also dust and allergens build up in carpeting, bedding and upholstery over time, contributing to worsen allergies and asthma. Dust mites, pet dander and mold lurk in physical possessions, which can trigger allergic reactions, decrease air quality and increase potential asthma problems.
Although most people think of bathrooms as the most germ-ridden spots in the house, findings indicate that the kitchen is even worse!
Keeping pests away
Bugs and rodents multiply quick and tend to hide in messy homes. They carry and spread disease, bacteria, germs and allergies. Same goes to Cockroaches! They are a well-established cause of asthma, carry numerous bacteria and parasites and they spread germs that can cause gastroenteritis. Mice can Lymphocytic Choriomeningitis, Salmonella and Hantavirus.
Cleaning & Mental Health
Believe it or not, keeping every corner of your house clean and organised creates a sense of accomplishment and happiness. A tidy place always gives positive energy which is good for mental health. No matter how busy you are, just 20 minutes of cleaning activity can make your home look beautiful.
Here are a few positive aspects of having a clean house!
Sense of accomplishment. When your house is clean and tidy, you cruise around and feel content, while everything has its place and the house looks fresh like new.
No guilt. Have you ever experienced the need of relaxing, watch a movie, read a box or just having a personal time but the thought of having pending things to do around the house make you feel extremely guilty? That guilt won't torment you if every day you do a little bit to maintain your house clean.
Move your body. Yes, cleaning keeps your body moving, active, burning calories; so if you ever need a push or stimulation to look healthier, cleaning your house is a perfect move!
Save time. When you clean and organise your house every day, you save time because when everything accumulates and gets dirtier, the time you'll need to spend is huge!
