No Time for Home Cleaning? Here’s Why It’s Crucial to Your Health!
Has life ever gotten in the way of maintaining your home to the standards you’d like? For example, are there times when dishes stacked in the sink, laundry piled to overflowing, and dust bunnies in the corners cause your stress meter to rise? It can quickly become overwhelming to manage the many intricate to-dos we face each day, and sometimes housework takes a back seat to more pressing needs.
However, recent studies are showing that there are actually a number of serious health risks that can result from letting home cleaning tasks slip. One study, for example, showed that seniors with cleaner homes had better overall health and were the most active.
According to Nicole Keith, lead researcher and professor at the Indiana University Department of Physical Activity, “At the end of the day, the interior condition of their house seemed to be the only thing affecting their physical activity. It was not at all what we expected.”
And the EPA concurs, sharing that the air quality inside our homes can be as much as five times more polluted than outdoor air, depending on the level of cleanliness. Add to that the fact that the typical individual spends a large quantity of time indoors – as much as 90% – and it becomes even more important to reduce toxins and maintain a sanitary environment.
In addition to the physical health benefits of having a clean home, the psychological rewards are equally important. The feeling of having an orderly, organized, sanitized home is therapeutic, and can improve our overall outlook on life.
