You probably already know that it’s important to keep a clean house, but did you know that cleaning your home can be good for your physical and mental health? It’s true! Cleaning your home is good for you and other members of your household. Here are three ways that cleaning your home can impact your health.

Boost Your Immune System and Prevent Illness

A clean home keeps pollutants, germs, and bacteria at bay. Dusting can improve the air quality in your house while cleaning surfaces helps eliminate viruses and bacteria that can cause illness. By cleaning, you’re eliminating immune system triggers that cause illness, asthma, sneezing, coughing, and allergic reactions.

Do you sometimes find that you have itchy, puffy eyes? Do you cough or sneeze in your house? Do you experience a tickling sensation in the back of your throat? This could be a reaction to the allergens in your air at home. Cleaning can help minimize these reactions or even completely eliminate them!

Reduced Levels of Stress and Depression

Studies support that a clean, clutter-free home can positively affect your mood as well as your mental focus. Do you find yourself feeling anxious at home? Is clutter getting to you? Is it hard to get work done at home because there’s never a clean surface for preparing food, doing homework, playing with your child? Do you sometimes feel like the walls are pressing in on you?

Changing your cleaning habits can help improve these feelings at home. Cleaning can add to a feeling of lightness and space that feels good and can have a bigger impact on the way you feel than you may realize.

Promote Healthier Habits

Cleaning is conducive to a healthier diet and a more active lifestyle. Organize your space to make healthy living easier. Some suggestions for improving your life through cleaning:

  • Declutter your house to create large, open spaces in your house. These open spaces are perfect for playing with the kids on the floor, doing exercises, inviting friends to your house, and entertaining.
  • Clean your kitchen counters daily to create a clean food prep surface. Use an antibacterial multipurpose cleaner to eliminate germs that can lead to foodborne illnesses.
  • Vacuum regularly to keep your floors clean. This makes it fun and healthy to get down on the floor, play with your dog or crawl around with your toddler, or whatever the case may be.
