Social conformity demands us to follow whatever society asks us to do – without asking any question. While this helps us feel like we belong in the group, it is also important to know why we do and what for are we doing all those things. Asking questions does not make us a little less of an individual, instead, this helps us gain more understanding on how and why things work around us. Just like housecleaning. Why is it important to always maintain the cleanliness of the house? Why not just do a housecleaning once a month? Why should we always be vigilant when dusts begin to accumulate and floors turn into different colors? What for?
Here are some important things to note on why it is important to regularly clean the house:
When the house is clean, your mind can think clearly and end up doing more productive things; unlike when the house is disorganized or dirty. No matter how you try to not care about it, seeing dirty and unorganized things around the house will really distract you; thus, your mind can no longer focus on the more important things that you have to attend to.
- You become more focused.
A dirty environment can trigger a lot of disorders and allergies. Even the smell from unwashed clothes, dirty curtains and carpets, and unwiped tables can cause poor indoor air quality that may trigger asthma, cough, and many other breathing problems. In addition, dust mites, pet dander, and molds can grow around the house if not addressed immediately.
- You become healthier.

Thorough cleaning on appliances removes accumulated dirt which in turn saves them from being attracted by rust and termites. Thus, this provides a long-term effect of being able to save a lot of money for repairs or replacing appliances like sofa, refrigerators, cabinets, and the like.
- You can lengthen the life span of your appliances.
The house is the reflection of our own. Therefore, it is totally embarrassing to have other people witness how unorganized and messy the house can be. Regularly cleaning the house saves you from being stressed on unexpected visits. Don’t let the cleanliness of your house hinder you from catching up and socializing with people.
- You’ll enjoy more the company of others.
Don’t let missing things ruin your day. A missing key, charger, or phone, should not hinder you from enjoying the company of other people or disturb your focus at work. Ditch the hassle and spend less time trying to find things which you can no longer trace where you have placed them by regularly cleaning the house and keeping it as organized as possible.
- You can easily find things.
Indeed, there’s nothing more relaxing than staying in a healthy environment and having to work around in an organized home. You can rest at ease, wake up in a good mood, leave without having to think of how the house looks like, and work productively.
So the next time you feel like lazing around and procrastinating, remember: a clean and organized household influences good mood, keeps us energized, and allows us to focus more on what is important. Cheers to a cleaner environment. Cheers to a happier life!
