Atlanta House Cleaning - Sponge & Sparkle Team MemberA clean home has more benefits than impressing visitors. It improves your quality of life in many ways.  Here are seven surprising benefits of a clean home.

1 – More Romance

There’s nothing worse than hearing your spouse walk in and announce that the house is still dirty, as if you hadn’t noticed.  Such a greeting does not bode well for a romantic evening.

There’s always the option of spending the whole day scrubbing and making sure the house is spic and span before he or she gets home, but then there’s the problem of falling to sleep over your dinner plate.

This is why cleaning together, or better yet, hiring someone to clean for you leads to a better sex life.

2 – Tidier Finances

Have you ever had a bill slip your mind time and time again? If so, changes are your billing system needs to be more organized.

Having a clean house will prevent you from letting mail pile up unread, and hence you will avoid the dangers of being clueless about your financial situation.

Another financial benefit: having a clean house will prevent multiple purchases for those items that tend to disappear into the clutter.

3 – A Clear Mind

If you’ve ever walked into a boutique hotel room you know just how relaxing these environments are.  It’s not because these rooms are spacious and have expensive furniture, because they don’t.  They are simply neat and clean.  A clean room really does lead to an uncluttered mind.

4 – Ethical Treatment

According to a Brigham Young University study, a clean smelling environment leads to fairer and more ethical treatment.

5 – Guilt-Free Leisure

Having a clean house removes that nagging inner voice telling you that you need to clean this, or organize that.

You are able to focus on things you enjoy like reading a book, watching a movie, or just sitting still and taking a deep breath without the guilt of feeling that there is something else you should be doing.

6 – A Healthier Family

A dirty home can exacerbate asthma, pass around colds, and spread dangerous bacteria. Your home doesn’t have to be sterile; a clean, dust-free environment can help keep all family members healthier.

Cleanliness will also prevent accidents in the home like tripping over toys, and getting injured on dangerous objects left lying about.  This is especially important if you have small children who aren’t in enough control of their motor skills, or are too busy rushing around to pay attention to where they are going.

7 – More Fun With Friends

Humans are social beings – positive social interaction leads to a happier, higher quality life. When your home is clean, you are much more likely to invite people over.  On the other hand, people who are embarrassed about the state of their home are much less likely to have close friends drop by.

In addition, an untidy home may make friends feel ill at ease, which means they will be reluctant to visit again.
