It’s the dreaded ‘deep clean’ day. You’ve got your tools at the ready; brushes, sprays and dusters, ready to tackle the massive chore that is the big clean. Don’t believe me? Then why are you reading this?!
Maybe you choose to give your house or flat an extreme clean once a week. Perhaps it’s more often – or maybe even less! The thing is; it needs to be done, whether you like it or not.
Deep cleaning can take up a lot of time, and the benefits aren’t immediately obvious. There are benefits, though, and a lot of the time a simple once over simply isn’t enough.
Bacteria and germs thrive in our homes, which is why it’s so important to regularly deep clean. That doesn’t just mean wiping the surfaces down and doing the dishes; you also need to empty your bins, clean your fridge along with your oven, wipe the walls down, polish the floors… the list goes on.
The good news is that a cleaner environment comes with many health benefits! Your air will be cleaner, making it much easier to breathe, focus and relax. That’s because you’ll be removing nasty allergens that get stuck in your furniture, floors and walls.
It’s also been proven that cleaner atmospheres can drastically boost your productivity!
You’ll get ill less often
It goes without saying, but deep cleaning can also be fantastic for your immune system. Effectively cleaning your house can eliminate traces of viruses that might make you sick, which is something that you absolutely need to avoid in this busy day and age.
Over time, bacteria and viruses can (and will) form in unclean houses – completely unnoticed! Regularly ‘shallow’ cleaning is still beneficial, though it’s not as effective as a good ol’ fashioned scrub.
This one might be a bit unexpected, but deep-cleaning can also work wonders for your mental health.
As a clean home is generally less cluttered and more organised, it promotes a healthy lifestyle and endorses stress-free living.
A messy house is a stressful environment; you might be worried about the mess, which can put you off tidying it.
It’s much more relaxing to come back to a clean, bright and fresh house! All that you’ll have left to do is put your feet up and relax.
