A Clean House is Important

Everyone wants a clean house, but some are better at accomplishing the task than others. And those who feel they fall short are often stressed at the thought of guests arriving, as they face the challenge to get their homes clean. Of course, beside the prospect of guests coming to your home, there are other reasons that keeping your home clean is so important. Studies have even shown that keeping your home neat, clean, and decluttered result in lots of positive benefits for you and your family.

A Clean House Results in a Healthier Family

It’s true – a clean house means a healthier family. Dusting, sweeping, mopping, vacuuming help rid your home of dangerous pollutants, including dust, dander, mold, bacteria, and other germs, protecting your loved ones from illnesses and allergies. Allergic reactions are often more prevalent in less than tidy homes, where allergens hid, ready to trigger breathing issues like asthma and allergies. Mold is another common cause of allergy issues like itchy watery eyes, coughing, and more. Keeping surfaces dry and clean will help prevent the spread of mold in your home. Using an effective disinfectant ensures a bacteria and germ free home as you pay close attention to cleaning bathrooms, kitchens, and other common areas where bacteria and germs are easily spread.

A Clean House Means Less Stress, Better Rest and Relaxation

Recently studies have demonstrated that clean, organized homes actually reduce stress and decrease feelings of depression as well. One such study published in the Personality and Psychology Bulletin, those with messy, cluttered homes had higher levels of cortisol (the stress hormone) and suffered greater levels of depression and fatigue, while those whose homes were uncluttered and clean felt relaxed and restored. It makes sense, when you think about it, coming home from work to a clean, restful respite would certainly improve one’s mental health rather than having to come home daily and clean continually. Improved moods are also a result of cleanliness and organization in your home. Having a clean home also improves the quality of sleep. A neat and tidy bedroom, free from dust and allergens, welcomes you in for a restful night’s sleep.

A Clean Home Improves Productivity and Creativity

Having a clean home actually improves the productivity and creativity of you and your family members. Keeping your home clean and decluttered allows family members to focus more easily on important tasks whether it means homework or paying bills or working from home. It also allows everyone to find what they need quickly without conducting a time-consuming all-out search amid piles of clutter. You can also imagine how having a clean house can help you in terms of creativity. You won’t be stressed by the need to clean, which means you’ll have more time to enjoy fun activities like developing new projects as you have time to devote to greater creativity.

A Clean Home Results in Overall Improvements for You and Your Family

With a clean, decluttered home, your family can easily welcome and entertain guests without the need for excuses and added stress or the fear of judgment.  Your own confidence will be boosted as you invite guests in and entertain them with ease in your neat, tidy, organized home. You won’t be exhausted from the sprint to get everything clean and organized before their arrival.
