We typically clean our homes for the basic sanitation and aesthetic benefits. But in reality, keeping our surrounding fresh, neat and tidy, has a huge impact on our mental and physical health. Here are a few benefits of maintaining a clean home:
A Clean Home Keeps Allergies at Bay
Without ventilation, our indoor environment can actually be more polluted than the outside world. When you go awhile without dusting or utilizing natural cleaning agents to eradicate pollutants, they tend to build up and affect your physical health. Often, when you think you’re suffering from seasonal allergies it’s actually the result of an unclean living environment.
A Sanitary Environment Reduces Mold
Many severe health problems are the result of mold growth within our homes. From asthma to the flu, we’re often unconscious of how much mold creeps up when we don’t routinely clean. Natural cleansers eliminate both mold and pesky bacteria, aiding the maintenance of our health.
If you find yourself wheezing or blowing your nose, know that the issue may be stemming from a collection of mold growth you haven’t eliminated.
Cleanliness Brings Stress Relief
Our homes are meant to be our havens – a sanctuary away from the hustle and bustle of the outside world. In a clean, clutter-free environment, we have the opportunity to relax and unwind without our homes adding to the stress of our daily routine.
In fact, cleaning itself can relieve stress. The routine of organizing and deep cleaning can induce a sense of wellbeing. Our external environment reflects our mental state, and by taking the time to care for the cleanliness of our homes, we’re making the effort to have a clean state of mind.
At CitruSolution in Middle Tennessee, we believe firmly in the mental and physical health benefits that come with a clean and sanitary leaving environment. That’s why we dedicate our time to providing natural cleaning agents to help you achieve the cleanliness that you deserve to bring a little peace of mind to your home this holiday season!
Making your home a healthier place to live doesn’t have to be costly, or overwhelming. Just a few small changes can make a significant difference. Here are a few simple things you can start doing today to improve the overall health of your home.
- Use Natural Carpet Cleaners
With carpet cleaning solutions that are made from natural ingredients, you can eliminate the environmental risks associated with cleaners made from harmful chemical agents. Citrus-based cleaners do not leave behind the soapy residue, which is known to attract dirt, so your carpets will dry faster and stay clean longer. At CitruSolution of Middle Tennessee, our solution contains citrus acid (like lemon juice) and d-Limonene (which is distilled from citrus peels), which not only smell great, but also have even been proven to fight against dust mites and other household allergens.
- Regular Upholstery Maintenance
When sinking into our favorite loveseat after a long day at work, we often don’t think about the dirt and grime that has built up in its fibers after long periods of time. These pollutants can significantly damage the air quality of your home, causing breathing issues and instigating fussy, unwelcome allergies. By cleaning your furniture on a regular basis, you will not only get a longer use out of it – you will also help to promote a safe and healthy environment within your home.
- Clean Water
Ensuring that your tap water is clean and free of toxins is a great way to improve the health of your home. You can call your local municipality to confirm that your water is of a high quality, and install home filtration systems to eradicate any unwanted pollutants.
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again – vacuum, vacuum, vacuum! I know that’s something that no one wants to hear. Vacuuming your rugs and carpet reduces the amount of dust, dust mites, and other particulate pollutants that accumulate in your home. Ever go to someone’s home and feel like you can’t breathe well? Airborne particles fall on all horizontal surfaces. While furniture is one target, floors cover more square footage in your home or office. Vacuuming with a good quality HEPA vacuum will remove much of the loose dirt and grime from your carpet and rugs.
- Air Purifiers
Besides regular upholstery and carpet cleaning to improve the air quality in your home, adding an air purifier can significantly help as well. Little known fact – indoor air pollution can be five times higher than outdoor air pollution, because the toxins get trapped within the walls of your home. The filters in air purifiers help to eliminate harmful particles that go unseen by the human eye, and erase unwelcome odors.
Use these five, easy to follow tips, and you’ll have made a world of difference in creating a cleaner and healthier home! Schedule your next carpet or upholstery cleaning with CitruSolution of Middle Tennessee to improve the health of your home today!
