How Good Cleaning Leads to Better Health

Often, there are two sides presented to the argument that a disinfected house/office leads to healthier occupants.  Many argue that over cleaning a space could lead to a less effective immune system.  It should be noted, however, that the whole practice of homeopathic medicine is under scientific fire these days, and that line of reasoning just may not be true.


Even if it were true, it is pure common sense that keeping up with the cleanliness of your living spaces is largely necessary to good health.  The answer is a smart, balanced approach.  Keep the allergies and germs that thrive in uncleaned spaces out, and you and your family or co-workers will enjoy better health.


Always remember the following factors when it comes to cleaning and your heath:


1. Allergins:


Allergies like pet dander, dust mites, mold and other irritants are sure to live and thrive in a home or office that isn’t well cleaned and kept up.  Those substances will lead to unnecessary suffering and perhaps even sickness, particularly if you or your loved ones suffer from asthma. 


Proper vacuuming and cleaning of corners and small spaces is essential in keeping these harmful substances away from your body and space.


2. Bathrooms


Bathrooms are one of bacteria’s favorite places to hide.  Things can get pretty gross when you flush the toilet and microscopic particles blast through the air via water vapor, especially when you leave that toothbrush on the bathroom counter (ew).   Deep cleaning your bathroom at least once a week can help keep that nasty bacteria away from us and help prevent disease.


3. The Kitchen


The kitchen is one of the nastiest places in a residential homes.  Because food particles are often left unnoticed in the room and left to nasty creatures and bacteria to eat, it is a breeding ground for food-borne illness.   A daily cleansing of the kitchen is necessary, especially after cooking a meal, but it is important to make sure this area of your home or office is deep cleaned at least once a week.
