Is this a question you’ve heard from the youngsters in your home? Or maybe you are wondering why you bother. We hope to show you (and perhaps those you love) what the benefits are for keeping a clean home and a few reasons you may want to hire a cleaning service.
When you are in a rush to get somewhere and can’t find something important – like the car keys – it takes a stressful situation and makes it worse. Keeping your house organized helps lower stress by keeping things where they should be for later retrieval. Organization and cleanliness also help keep items from being a tripping hazard and they provide sanitation, all topics addressed in this article.
As we mentioned, trip hazards can be dangerous, but that’s not the only safety risk that comes with a dirty home. Bacteria, molds, and fungus can all grow if not managed through the cleaning process. Whether throwing out the trash, washing laundry, or wiping surfaces, managing germs is a big deal.
Not only does cleaning support the removal of germs, but it also reduces the spread of disease that can come from pests who find trash, moisture, and hiding places in a home. Regular cleaning allows the discovery of problems before they get out of hand.
Dust, allergens, and odors are all reduced with regular cleaning, especially if there are pets in the home. Asthma conditions can be worsened when carpets and upholstery aren’t kept clean; dust and dander can become very problematic. Molds can also trigger allergies and asthma.
Breath better, both during sleep and during the day, by keeping your home clean.
Studies have shown the correlation between messiness and feeling overwhelmed, stressed, and tired. For some, cleaning can be a practice in mindfulness and reducing anxiety. If you’ve ever cleaned when you were upset, you understand this. If you’ve washed dishes while looking out the window at birds, you may also agree that cleaning can have a calming effect.
For others, cleaning is a chore they find difficult or even impossible given their energy, physical abilities, or time. In this case, hiring a cleaning service to help can give the health benefits of a clean home, as well as peace of mind that you don’t have to do it alone.
Your mental and physical health, as well as that of your family, is a priority. That is why keeping your house clean truly matters.
