Lesser-Known Benefits of House Cleaning Services, Part 2

In part one of this two-part blog series, we went over some of the secondary benefits of house cleaning services that aren’t discussed as often. While the primary benefits here are relatively apparent, including cleaner and healthier spaces for you and your family and numerous aesthetic plusses, there are also several lesser-known benefits of hiring such services.

At Healthy Homes Housekeeping, we’re proud to offer a variety of home cleaning services, from professional maintenance cleaning to deep cleaning, move-in and move-out cleaning services and much more. What are some of the other key benefits many clients see from our services, even beyond those you’d traditionally think of? Part two of our series will discuss several.

Impact on Diet

This one is particularly unusual for some homeowners to hear about – how on earth does a clean home impact your diet and food choices? Stick with us here.

Research has consistently shown that dirty, cluttered spaces lead to anxiety and stress. Relatedly, stress often leads to us making poor dietary choices. A 2010 study in Psychological Science combined these themes, showing that those in a cleaner, more orderly environment made smarter and healthier choices with their snacks and meal decisions than those in messy, unclean areas. In addition, those with cleaner home areas like the kitchen are more likely to have a desire to cook at home rather than going out for fast food.

Financial Savings

A prominent benefit of house cleaning services: Financial benefits. For starters, regular house cleaning services spare you the need to spend time and money on extra-strength cleaning products and major buildup projects – we’ll ensure such buildups never take place to begin with.

For another, our professional cleaning services limit the potential for damage to many surfaces or areas in your home. Surfaces full of grime and dirt are more likely to be damaged, especially on surfaces like wood or tile flooring that will scratch and dull when dirt is tracked through them. Keeping home areas and appliances clean will limit damage and repair needs significantly.

Limiting Environmental Footprint

Finally, quality house cleaning services are a fantastic way to limit your environmental footprint while maintaining a clean, pristine space. Our industry as a whole has gone to great lengths in recent years to promote and emphasize the use of green products, ensuring that our services leave the minimal possible footprint at all times. When compared with DIY homeowner cleaning efforts, there are huge differences in the impact on environmental areas like water usage, ground contamination and related themes.
