Ah, a clean home. It’s like a breath of fresh air — literally. A dirty house is a germs house and that can affect the entire family. Cleanliness is important because of good hygiene and keeping your home healthy but there are more benefits to keeping a clean home. Below are 6 Surprising Benefits of a Clean Home.
- A HEALTHIER FAMILY
Bacteria, mold, dust, and dander cause everything from allergies to asthma. Regular cleaning sessions will also significantly lower the potential for sickness, and create a healthier family overall. We proudly wear the Safer Choice® Seal of Approval on our labels which means our products do not contain harsh chemicals or toxic ingredients that can harm our family members – even the furry ones or our environment.

- MORE OPPORTUNITIES TO BE HOSPITABLE
If you are anything like me, the unexpected knock at the door throws you into complete panic mode. You tend to point out every out-of-place object in your home and pray they don’t think your home is always a disorganized mess. Your house doesn’t have to be spic-and-span to impress. A general pick-up is easy to do each day and makes your home look so much better.
- A QUICK BURST OF PHYSICAL ACTIVITY
If you hate to exercise but want to stay active and healthy, just tackle some cleaning for about 30 minutes. You’ll quickly break a sweat without paying for an expensive gym membership and your home will look better in no time at all.
- LESS GUILT ABOUT DOWNTIME
Do you ever feel guilty sitting down to watch Netflix or browsing Facebook when you know you have house chores needing to be tended to? Try making a set time each day to clean so you have absolutely nothing to feel guilty about.
- INCREASED PRODUCTIVITY
Keeping a clean home gives you literal and mental space to work, and allows you to focus exclusively on the task at hand. Which….you guessed it, makes you WAY more productive.
- MORE CONTROL
The next time you feel like your life is spiraling out of control, take a good look around your home. What do you see? Is it full of toys or other clutter? Crumbs? Pet hair? Those things might be a huge cause of anxiety and frustration. I know coming home to a messy house instantly changes my mood from happy-go-lucky to irritable.
