3 Benefits of Maintaining a Clean Home

If you’re having a hard time squeezing household chores into your daily routine, you’ll probably start to feel motivated once you find out the benefits you can get from having a clean home. Take a look at the following:

Avoid allergies
Regular cleaning at home is one of the best ways to reduce dust and other nasty irritants. Simple chores like sweeping, dusting and vacuuming will eliminate dust, pet dander, dust mites and other allergens which can cause cold and flu-like symptoms. If you suffer from allergies or asthma, you’ll find your symptoms relived and breathing far easier by keeping your house clean! Source: Rent

Ward off pests
In general, bugs and other household pests like warm, damp environments and they have a tendency to disguise themselves in dusty, untidy areas. Regular cleaning helps occupants discover pest problems and treat them accordingly. In addition to regular exterminations, simple chores like taking out the garbage, sweeping, and vacuuming keeps bugs and other pests from making your home their nesting ground. Source: BeforeItsNews

Reduce stress
House-cleaning reduces stress? Most people would say just the opposite; but if you go about it with the right state of mind and a couple of easy techniques, you’ll be surprised at how stress-reducing it can be. One simple technique is to use cleaning time as meditation time. Most chores do not require a lot of conscious thought, so your mind has time to wander. If you don’t like to work in quiet, another option is to turn on some music and get moving. Music helps to take your mind off the task at hand and may even make you work faster.

Another stress-reducing technique is to move quickly, i.e. running the stairs rather than walking. Quick movement releases endorphins into your bloodstream; endorphins are a natural mood-elevating hormone.

The end product of all this cleaning is a clutter-free, clean home, which in and of itself, relieves stress. It’s nice to have a clean kitchen to cook in and to know exactly where something is. Source: OldHouseWeb
