About Us

Healthy Homes are homes that are safe, clean, and healthy for the people who live there. Many studies link health issues such as asthma, lead poisoning, and injury to hazards in the home. A hazard is a source of danger and can be anything that increases the risk of harm. Many hazards may be present in your home and should be addressed. Because many people in the United States spend over half of each day inside their homes, and children often spend up to 90 percent of their time indoors, the home plays an important role in health.

Everyone deserves to be safe and healthy, but some of the most serious health problems for families can start in the home! A healthy home affects everyone, especially:

  • Children are more likely to be affected by hazards in the home because their bodies are still growing. Children play and crawl on the floor and often put things in their mouths. When compared to adults, relative to their body weight, children eat more food, drink more water, and breathe more air. For this reason, children often have greater contact with sources that may be harmful to their health. Children also depend on adults to make their homes safe.
  • Expecting mothers should live in a healthy home. Contaminants such as lead, pesticides, and tobacco smoke can be harmful to the health of the developing baby.
  • Seniors may be subject to trips and falls in the home. Common objects such as rugs, uneven flooring, poor lighting, and a lack of handrails can all be hazards for injury. By following the Seven Healthy Homes Principles shown in this booklet, you can help make your home ase healthier place to live. These principles are simple ways to help create a healthier home for you and your family. You've probably heard people say, "Why clean the house if it's just going to get dirty again?" This excuse may ring true for some, but people should also know that there are more incentives to cleaning than just having a sparkling house. The act of cleaning has many physical, mental, and emotional benefits that may improve one's health. Check out these 10 health benefits of a clean house and get scrubbing!

healthy benefits

Reduces allergies

Regular cleaning is the best way to reduce dust and other irritating allergens from the home. Chores like sweeping, dusting, and vacuuming dispose of dust, dust mites, pet dander, and dozens of other allergens that cause cold and flu-like symptoms. People with allergies, asthma, and respiratory problems can relieve their symptoms and breathe easier by keeping their house clean.

Sanitation

Every time you clean the house with disinfectants, you are killing bacteria, viruses, and other microorganisms that can compromise your health. These powerful cleansers target germs and bacteria, such as E. coli, staph, and salmonella that are responsible for many foodborne illnesses and infections. Sanitizing surfaces in the kitchen, bathroom, and other areas of the house will help protect you from these potentially dangerous bacteria.

Reduces mold

Keeping your house clean provides more opportunities to detect mold growth and fix the problem in a timely manner. Mold can wreck havoc on people's health, causing allergic reactions, cold and flu-like symptoms, asthma attacks, and other severe health problems. Regular cleaning and inspections help control and prevent mold growth.

Reduces stress

Keeping your house clean and organized can reduce the chance of injury by minimizing clutter and keeping things out of harm's way. Leaving loose items around like toys may increase the risk of trips and falls. Stacks of boxes and other large piles can easily fall on top of someone and injure them. Simply tidying up and organizing can make a huge difference in the overall safety of your home.

Both the act of cleaning and maintaining a clean house can help relieve and prevent unnecessary stress. A clean house makes maneuvering and finding things much easier. Easy cleaning like sweeping, doing the dishes, and making your bed will make your house look clean and ready for guests if the opportunity arises.

Wards off pests

In general, bugs and other household pests like warm, damp environments and they have a tendency to disguise themselves in dusty, untidy areas. Regular cleaning helps occupants discover pest problems and treat them accordingly. In addition to regular exterminations, simple chores like taking out the garbage, sweeping, and vacuuming keeps bugs and other pests from making your home their nesting ground.

Burns calories

Cleaning doesn't just make your home look spick and span, it also burns calories. Everything from sweeping, mopping, vacuuming, and hand washing the dishes can make you work up a sweat and burn off calories. To increase your calorie burn, dance to your favorite tunes while cleaning the house for at least an hour.

Encourages cooking

A dirty and unorganized kitchen can deter people from cooking at home because they don't want to make the mess even worse. A clean kitchen is much more inviting than a messy one. Washing the dishes, wiping down the countertops, and cleaning out the refrigerator allow the kitchen to serve as a functional workspace where you can cook healthy meals for the whole family.

Improves mental state

Let's face it: there's nothing better than walking into a house that is clean and organized. In fact, the process of cleaning and de-cluttering has been known to provide many mental health benefits. From the physical movements to the completion of a task, people find cleaning very cathartic. It's also a great way to release frustration, anxiety, and anger.

Reduces health and safety hazards

A clean house can mean the difference between life and death. Those who live in an unsanitary environment are more susceptible to illnesses caused by bacteria, allergens, and pests. An untidy home can also be a safety hazard for its occupants. Clutter is a fire hazard and can physically trap occupants inside their homes, preventing them from escaping in an emergency. Cleaning frees up space and keeps messes from becoming serious hazards.
