It has been said that cleanliness is next to godliness, and it turns out that this is certainly quite true. This is because we have learned, in the decades upon decades of science and learning about the ways in which sickness can infest our homes, that there are actually good reasons- like your families health and happiness for why you should have your home clean. This isn’t just what your home looks like to other people, but how actually clean your home is. Back in the middle ages, when the bubonic plague wiped out a whopping 30-60% of Europe’s population, people had no idea how it happened. Many people made guesses, but we know now that unsanitary conditions and living life among rats and our own sewage, is what really caused all those millions of deaths. Cleaning your home can help your family stay healthy and happy, and here are just a few ways to do just that.
The first thing you should do when you want to deep clean your home is pick a room. Decluttering your home is actually a huge part of deep cleaning. This is because items that we don’t want or need can stack up against us and make it where it’s nearly impossible to get all the nooks and crannies. This is where things can begin to grow without our knowledge, and where mold can settle if it’s somewhere we have visited in awhile. This is why it’s important to get rid of items, so that you know everything that is in your home, and so that you can clean it appropriately as much as you can.
This gets to the deep cleaning part. You’ll want to work in certain spaces first, the kitchen, the closet, the living room, declutter those spaces, and work to clean it all out thoroughly from there. When it comes to deep cleaning, this means getting all the nooks and crannies so that things don’t grow in the darkness, causing illness and more in your family.After you have decluttered a space, you should remove the items that you can, like clothing, if a closet, wash them separately, and while they are being washed or cleaned, you should sanitize where they usually sit. This usually involves some degree of knowledge of sanitization.
The great thing about decluttering and cleaning our homes from top to bottom, is that you may find tons of items that you no longer need. Many people are willing to pay a top dollar for old ephemera, rare books, and more at Abebooks. Another way to sell your items is to go online and sell them at a reasonable price. This is given that the items are in good condition. If not, they should either be thrown away, and the good quality items you can’t sell should be donated to shelters and the needy.…
