Health. Physical health. (Throw in a little emotional boost, too!)

Without a doubt, the number one benefit from having a clean home is healthiness. And it’s also pretty amazing what a healthy, clean home can do to lift your spirits, too.

According to study done at Indiana University found a correlation between a clean home and physical fitness. Researchers found participants with cleaner homes exercised more. “At the end of the day, the interior condition of their house seemed to be the only thing affecting their physical activity,” stated activity expert NiCole Keith.

And get this, clean homes are know to lower fatigue. That’s right, provide more energy. Okay, so we won’t tell you to quit going to the gym or drinking those energy drinks or eating those energy bars – but it is connected in lessening that fatigue.

Reducing Allergy and Asthma Symptoms

When it comes to your carpet, furniture, upholstery or bedroom, or even in areas that are potentially damp with moisture, such as basements and garages, allergies and asthma symptoms can thrive with the moisture, mold, mildew and residue.

Dust mites, pet dander, mold and mildew – all which can trigger allergic reactions, decrease air quality and increase potential asthma problems. These are the findings of research related results by Dr. Uma Gavani, an allergy and asthma specialist on staff at Christ Medical Center.

“The more stuff you have in your home, the harder it is to clean,” Dr. Gavani says. “Messy areas increase the potential for dust, pet dander and mold to accumulate in closets, on surfaces and in crevices.”

More company, please!

Believe it or not, having a clean home actually in many ways nudges the desire to have more company over. Whether friends, family, colleagues – there’s no surprise, “Hurry, let’s clean the house – company’s coming!” situations. In fact, you welcome the opportunity to show your home to the next “unplanned” visit by, well, whoever. But this time, you’re ready! Ha!

Keeping your furniture free from lint, dirt and stains, your refrigerator, cupboards wiped, your carpets vacuumed, wood floors shiny and clean – all are welcoming items so you’ll be confident.

Protect Against Pesky Pests!

One of the most ugliest symptoms of an unclean home is the resulting increase in pest activity. Ranging from ants, crickets, rats, mice, cockroaches, termites, bed bugs, spiders, centipedes and more!

Bugs and other household pests are attracted to warm, damp places in your home, and are drawn, literally to crumbs, sugar spilled on the floor and even small amounts of food that are so small you almost can’t see it.

Consistent and regular cleaning can help to deter a lot of potential and hazardous pest problems. Aside from scheduled pest control, taking out the garbage, sweeping and moping your floors, vacuuming and keep crumbs from the tables and counters – use appropriate cleaners that also help protect.
