5 Underrated Upsides To A Clean Living Space

Spring cleaning time is here, and we have some important news to go along with it—there are great benefits to living in a clean space. Surprised? It’s no joke. The best part is, Yelp has local professionals that can help with all this… which means all you have to do is kick up your feet and watch the magic happen. So, what can a little cleanliness do for you?

1. Don’t worry, be happy.

A messy house can make a mess of your mood. As much as you may love your clothing piles (looking at you, JNCO jeans that will definitely be “in” again soon), unnecessary clutter can add to your stress levels and get real dirty, real quick. Whether you decide to sort your bookshelf, tidy up the living room, or finally hang up all the clothes on the floor of your closet, a little organization can go a long way towards reducing stress and giving you a much-needed dose of happiness. If that sounds like too much work and not enough play, Yelp has you covered. Find a professional organizer and let them do the heavy (or light) lifting.

2. No more sick days.

Winter is over, and the sicknesses should be too. Seems pretty obvious, right? And yet people still let dirt, germs, and dust accumulate throughout their house… it’s practically like they’re begging to feel bad. A simple deep clean of your carpets can strip out dust mites, helping to keep allergies and asthma in check. If you aren’t into going full Zamboni on your rugs yourself, it’s easy to find someone who can on Yelp. (Hockey pucks not included.)

3.  Get it done. Get it all done.

One word. Four syllables. Pro-duc-tiv-i-ty. (Was that five?) It’s awfully tough to get anything done when you can’t find the things you need to do it. And don’t even get us started on how hard it is to focus at a messy table. A clean, organized living space will make it infinitely easier to be productive with your work… and the best part is, you don’t even have to be the one to do the organizing.  

4. Sleep like a baby. A big, adult baby.

A good night’s sleep seems like no big deal… that is, until you go without one. A cluttered, dusty, or disorganized bedroom can make it hard to fall asleep (and even harder to stay that way). And a bad night’s sleep can affect you in all sorts of ways you don’t even realize. Headaches. Drowsiness. Slowed reactions. Weight gain. Sudden explosive hair growth on your feet… okay, maybe not that one, but you get the point. Good sleep matters. Don’t worry though, Yelp can help with that.

5. No hard hats required.

It’s pretty simple, really—the less you have lying around the house, the less there is to trip on. And the less you trip, the happier you are. We don’t have the exact science to back this up, but trust us. Standing up is better than falling.

Of course, this doesn’t just apply to inside. If you’ve got a lawn or garden, all it takes is one rogue root to bring you crashing down. Good thing Yelp has gardeners, too.  

At the end of the day, spring cleaning has all kinds of health benefits—probably even more than we listed here. But the best benefit of all? Finding cleaning services on Yelp, because it involves no actual cleaning on your part. Time to kick back, relax, and get that house clean without breaking a sweat. Cheers to that.
