Health Benefits of Clean Homes: Allergies, Diet, Savings

In part one of this two-part blog series, we looked at some of the considerable health benefits that may be available simply from maintaining a clean home on a regular basis. While some people only associate a clean home with aesthetics and comfort, the reality is that a consistently clean house offers several health-related plusses to all occupants.

At Healthy Homes Housekeeping, we’re proud to offer a huge range of house cleaning services to clients around Ogden, including maintenance cleaning, move out/in cleaning and much more. Today’s part two of our series will go over some additional health benefits that come with our services, including a few that may surprise you.

Seasonal Allergies

One major area where a consistently clean home can benefit your health is in limiting seasonal allergies. Dust and other allergens build up quickly in areas that aren’t cleaned regularly, leading to increased allergy symptoms, sneezing, watery eyes and many others.

By keeping your home clean on a regular basis, you reduce the presence of these allergens and limit their impact on anyone living there – especially children, who tend to be more susceptible to allergies. Some people’s allergies aren’t even confined only to seasonal irritants, but also include pet dander or other similar elements. A clean home can help with these issues as well.

Healthier Diet Choices

Did you know that research reveals that things like stress, clutter and chaos in the home can lead to poor food choices? This is because these elements tend to introduce anxiety, and many of us default to unhealthy eating habits when we’re anxious.

By keeping your home clean and organized, you reduce this anxiety and make it easier to stick with healthier food options. Many of our clients have told us how much more likely they are to cook a healthy meal at home when their kitchen is clean and clutter-free.

Saving Money

Another big area we’ve seen in our clients: Regularly cleaning the home can actually save you money on healthcare costs. Poor home hygiene can lead to increased chances of problems like respiratory infections, which require expensive doctor’s visits or medication.

But with a clean home and reduced transmission of germs or bacteria, you reduce these risks considerably – and could save major money over time. Consider the realm of air quality, for instance – this is far better in a regularly cleaned home, leading to reduced risk of asthma and other respiratory ailments.

As you can see, there are several major health benefits to maintaining a clean home.

We look forward to helping you live in a healthier and happier environment!
