Holidays bring such wonderful things, time with family, presents and gift-giving, and parties with friends; but it also brings a lot of mess. With all the preparation for these events, dinners, and gift-giving, most of us fall behind on our usual house-cleaning schedule; and unfortunately, this is a bigger problem than many of us might think. The visually-appealing aspect of a clean house is a no-brainer, but there is also a long list of other important benefits-related to your health-that you may not have even thought of.
- Germs- This one most of think of, at least in a secondary aspect, but few of us truly appreciate how a spotlessly-clean house can make us less prone to germs: germs that spread sickness, viruses, etc. Especially, when you think of all the people we are encountering in closed-in spaces during the holidays, the more we can cut down on germs in our home, the happier we will be.
- Allergens- Keeping your house clean at the holidays, helps thwart the nasty health effects of potential allergens such as dust, pet dander, dust mites, etc.
- Injuries-You might not think of it, but having clutter-such as the baby’s toys in the living room or the stool for the closet left out can easily cause injury. Consider being in a rush for a holiday party or event, and rushing out the door, only to trip over a toy and break a leg. These kinds of things happen every day.
- Stress and Mental State-There’s no other time during the year that can cause such a wide range of emotions-good and bad-than the holidays, and having a messy home is likely adding to any negative feelings or stress you might be feeling already. It can be very depressing having a home that is dirty, dusty, or just not gleaming; and the converse, is certainly true-how good do you feel waking up to or coming home to a sparkling clean home?
