Winter is coming and so is cold season. Ahhh! Let’s avoid sickness this season with a clean home. It’s pretty impressive how much a tidy place can help your health. So take a little time to dust and vacuum because it may just save you a trip to the doctor’s office.
In case that first paragraph wasn’t convincing enough let’s get into some cold hard facts. When we have a clean home, we reduce germs. Sanitizing your dwelling can help fight against gross and grimy germs and reduce the concentration of bacteria. If you spritz your home with a sanitizer (we recommend an eco-friendly one) then you can extend the 5-second food rule to 10. It’s really a win win!
Another menacing intruder in your home is dust. You may see it accumulate on your shelves or the books you keep meaning to read but it can also be invisible, just lurking in the air. And you’re breathing it in!!! Dust can lead to coughing, sneezing, eye irritation and even hayfever. Try keeping up with regular dustings in order to reduce long term lung issues.
Our last argument for keeping a clean home this winter is to diminish unwelcome pests in your place. When you’ve got clutter and mess then you’ve opened up a playground of perfect places to hide if you’re a lil mouse or nasty cockroach. Don’t give those pests a chance to move in, it’s not like they’d pay rent anyway.
