7 Surprising Benefits to Living in a Clean Home

Not all of us enjoy cleaning, but we can all agree that it’s much nicer to live in a clean and tidy home than it is to live in a messy, unclean one. But, there are a number of benefits to living in a clean home that you may not be aware of…

7 Surprising Benefits to Living in a Clean Home

1. A healthier family!

It’s nice for your family to live in a clean and tidy environment, but it’s also great for their health. If you’re keeping your home clean and tidy, you’re massively reducing the chances of your home becoming infested with small bugs, mites and organic growth…

4. Cleaning is great exercise!

We can’t always find the time to exercise in the day, especially when we have families to look after and jobs to go to. But, if we can find the time to clean, then we’re hitting two birds with one stone!

A good 30 minute clean can burn a nice 100-200 calories (that’s half a cheeseburger) and get you on your way to hitting your recommended 10,000 steps per day. So, while it may not be a complete substitute for hitting the gym or going for a run, it’s a great option next time you’re short for time and there’s some house work that needs doing.

5. A clean environment reduces risk of depression.

And why not make it more fun by playing some music and cranking up the volume? Cleaning doesn’t have to be boring, you know!
