How to Make Your Home a Healthy Place

By Genevieve Cunningham

Your home is your happy place. Wherever your home is should feel warm and inviting and safe. But your home should also feel healthy. In fact, if your home is not a healthy place, everyone in the family suffers. But how do we create a healthy home? Is there a trick to making it work? If you’re interested in creating a healthy home and keeping your family as healthy and happy as possible, take a look at these helpful tips.

Don’t Forget to Dust

Dusting is a part of cleaning … but it’s often a part of cleaning that we let fall behind. If you can’t see the dust, why worry with it, right? Unfortunately, the dust that settles on everything in your home likely contains germs and allergens. The longer you let the dust sit, the more likely you are to breathe in these germs and get sick. If you want to keep your house and family healthy, make sure that dusting from top to bottom is a part of your cleaning routine.

Throw Out the Clutter

Clutter in the home can harm health in two ways. First, it can collect dust, allergens, and even mold. By eliminating the clutter, you’re also eliminating these potential problems. But clutter can also be bad for mental health. When we’re surrounded by clutter, we tend to feel overwhelmed and frustrated. Getting rid of the clutter can improve physical well-being and mental health, too.

Vacuum Often

Another place where dust and allergens hide is in the carpet and on the floors. Just think about how dirty these areas get as we walk on them all day long! To remove these particles, you have to vacuum and sweep often. This is especially true if you have smaller kids who may play on the floor. Just make this a part of your normal day. Wake up and vacuum. Before bed, vacuum again. It’s a really easy and simple way to improve your health and protect the health of everyone in your home.

Keeping your home healthy can keep your family healthy, too. And who wouldn’t want this important benefit? Use these tips to deep clean your home and protect your loved ones. With a little work and some consistency, you may be able to keep the healthiest home on the block and the healthiest family, too.
