The Benefits of Having a Clean House

Posted: Thursday, April 05, 2018

Having a clean house is a nice feeling in general. Seeing everything wiped down and polished is oddly satisfying and knowing where everything is, is very useful. But, keeping your house clean has so many more benefits than just looking nice.

Keeping your house clean will help lower stress and fatigue. A clean house can decrease your stress levels almost immediately. We have all been in the situation where we need an item and we cannot find it. This causes temporary stress in your day but, has the potential to impact your permanent stress levels if you experience this frequently.

A clean house also helps reduce allergies, asthma symptoms, and the risk of illness. Many people think the bathroom should be the main room of concern when it comes to germs. However, the kitchen is the area that has the highest potential of germs, mold, and bacteria. This is a result of many tiny cracks and crevices that liquid, food crumbs, germs, and other bacteria can hide, which can attract rodents and pests that spread disease, trigger an asthma attack, cause fevers, skin irritations, allergic reactions, and many other symptoms.

And finally, a clean house will actually help keep you safe. One of the leading causes for house fires is clutter. Fires are more likely to start and spread when there is unnecessary stuff everywhere in your home. Falling is also a common occurrence that could happen when you have a cluttered house. Ironically, falling over smaller objects is more common than falling over a large object.

Overall, a clean house is good for your mental and physical health and helps prevent illnesses. Heartland PCA recognizes that not everyone has time or the capability to keep a clean house.
