4 Health Benefits of a Clean Home

We’ve all heard the saying ‘tidy home, tidy mind’, and that’s something we preach here at Gtech. Not only does having a clean home make it easier to find something when you need it, but it can also have a positive impact on your health. Check out some of the ways that a clean home can benefit your health.

1. Improves mental health

Cleaning can seem daunting sometimes (especially if the jobs have been piling up), but having a clean home can really improve your mental health. After you’ve done the hard work, you can take time for yourself guilt-free and enjoy a sense of achievement! Struggling to get going? Start by picking up 11 things, then find a home for them or throw them away. If you feel like you can carry on, great! If not, then you’re 11 things closer to a cleaner home.

2. Helps to combat allergies

If you suffer from dust and pet allergies, regular cleaning is a great way to keep them under control. As well as dusting down and wiping with a washable microfibre cloth, you can help to stop a build-up of dust and fur by ensuring you vacuum regularly. Check out our range of bagged vacuums, which are ideal for allergy sufferers. The bag ensures that the collected dust particles and fur remain contained inside, rather than being released back into your home when emptying. And as the bag acts as a filter, you don’t have to worry about unclogging fur and dust for maintenance – simply remove and replace when full.

3. Assists with relaxation and sleeping

It’s easy to put off doing the washing up (and other jobs), but it’s not always so easy to sleep that night. By taking away these problems and getting them done before winding down in the evening, it’s much easier to relax our minds and get a good night’s sleep, which can drastically improve your mood and health.

4. Reduces the risk of cold and flu

Cleaning is essential when it comes to getting rid of bacteria and viruses in your home. Bacteria thrive on surfaces that get touched often, so make sure you’re not just wiping down kitchen surfaces, but also door handles, TV remotes, taps, and light switches.
