How Cleaning Your House Can Improve Your Health

By Genevieve Cunningham

Cleaning the house is never fun. No one looks forward to breaking out the cleaning products, throwing on some rubber gloves, and getting down and dirty. It’s just not a chore that most people look forward to tackling. But we all do it because we know it’s good for us. And as it turns out, it might be even better for us than we thought! If you’re not too keen on cleaning your house, take a look at these ways in which scrubbing, vacuuming, and dusting your abode might actually boost your health.

Cleaning Burns Calories

Want a workout that doesn’t feel like a traditional workout? Just start cleaning! You’ll be scrubbing, bending, stooping, pushing, pulling, lifting. You’ll burn a ton of calories in just an hour of vigorous cleaning ... maybe even more than in some regular exercises. While it shouldn’t take the place of your normal workout routine, cleaning is a great additional tool that can burn massive calories and keep your weight under control.

Cleaning Kills Germs

Part of staying healthy is staying away from dangerous germs. And the only way to avoid some germs is to wipe them out! Cleaning helps you eliminate many types of germs from your home. It can’t and won’t keep all illness away from you and your family, but it can definitely help. Along with regular deep cleaning, it will also help to constantly wipe down counters, tabletops, doorknobs, and other oft-touched areas of your home.

Cleaning Keeps Good Habits

Good habits are necessary in your fight for good health. Good habits might include regular exercise, proper sleep, a healthy diet, and others. And regular cleaning is also a good habit that can promote health. Add this to your healthy routine.  Make it a daily part of life. It will help you stay in the routine of cleaning, which then brings you the benefits on a regular basis.

With all of the healthy benefits that come from cleaning, it might not seem like such a chore the next time you have to scrub from top to bottom. Not only will your house be sparkling clean, but you’ll be improving your health and wellness at the same time. When it’s time to clean, think of it as a house, body, and mind cleanse, and it might not feel like such a burden after all.
