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 significantly lower the potential for sickness, and create a healthier family overall.

- 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 browse Facebook when you know you have house chores needing 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.
