Are There Mental Health Benefits to Hiring Professional House Cleaning Services? 

There is nothing worse than coming home after a stressful workday only to find a mess. Keeping up with dirt, spills and clutter can feel like a never-ending cycle. A mess can happen all at once following a get-together, complex meal or art project but more often than not, it is more subtle than that. It is easy to procrastinate cleaning a bathroom but it won’t take long for it to become overwhelming and that is bad for physical and mental health. 

Both humans and animals are heavily impacted by our surrounding environments. Having clutter around is enough to make us anxious, cause fatigue, leave you feeling overwhelmed and eats up leisure time that could be spent on hobbies, friends and family or even self-care. If all of this sounds overwhelming, that’s because it is! Don’t just learn to live with a mess when there are professional cleaners in your area ready and willing to handle the dirty work for you! 

How A Professionally Cleaned House Is Good For Your Health 

Whether it is the middle of the work week or a Saturday morning, no one wants to start the day with a mess. In fact, walking into a kitchen to see a mess can be demoralizing and lead to a drop in mood and productivity. You can’t relax in the chaos but don’t have the motivation to clean or just don’t know where to start, and it prolongs the cycle. 

The best way to maintain a clean and inviting living space is with consistency but this is easier said than done. Good habits don’t just happen overnight but need to be developed over time and our Lemonade Maid Services are here to help! 

Clean homes contribute to better habits in a variety of ways, including: 

  • Higher Rates of Productivity: Cleaning and organizing can take up a lot of your free time and mental bandwidth. Having a routine cleaning program in place means being able to take that time and energy and refocus it toward other things that you actually enjoy doing! 
  • Better Division of Labour: In a shared household, chores and cleaning are a common sources of tension. If one person feels like they are doing more than the other, it can cause resentment. By passing the bulk of cleaning onto an expert there are less tasks to delegate and less cause for stress about who is doing what. 
  • Better Sleep Habits & Easy Mornings: Everyone has had those nights where you lay awake in bed, staring at the ceiling going over a running to-do list in your mind. By removing chores and housecleaning from this list, you have one less thing to worry about. Don’t stay up late scrubbing or lose sleep worrying about chores when you can lighten the load with a bit of help from a professional cleaning company. 
  • Improved Eating Habits: It is hard to imagine how a dirty house can prevent you from eating properly but it happens! A cluttered countertop reduces prep space, making it harder to cook. This encourages people to grab quick and easy things that don’t require a lot of space or create a lot of mess. Instead of grabbing a microwavable meal or cooking up pasta for every easy meal, create a space that encourages meal prep and healthier, more well-rounded choices. 

In addition to building up better habits, high quality cleanings will help to improve your physical health as well. Layers of dust will have a negative impact on allergies and reduce indoor air quality. Bathrooms and kitchen are high traffic areas that are prone to building up bacteria. Without regular cleaning, germs and bacteria can lead to serious illness.
