As reported by HuffPost in their article “Regular Cleaning is Good for Your Heart and Soul,” maintaining a clean house is not just a luxury but a necessity for good mental and physical health. A study published by the Indiana University department of Physical Activity, led by associate professor Nicole Keith, discovered a strong correlation between clean homes and healthy people.

Researchers tracked the physical health of 998 African Americans, aged between 49 and 65—a demographic with a high risk for heart disease. They compared their levels of physical activity with the cleanliness of their homes. The study revealed that those with the cleanest homes were also the healthiest and most active. The findings suggested that encouraging people to maintain their home’s cleanliness could be even more crucial to their overall health than the walkability of their neighborhood.

“At the end of the day, the interior condition of their house seemed to be the only thing affecting their physical activity,” said Keith. This unexpected finding underscores the significant impact of a clean living environment on physical health.

Historically, the link between cleanliness and health isn’t new. Florence Nightingale, a pioneer of modern nursing, famously stated, “The connection between health and the dwelling of the population is one of the most important that exists.”

Additionally, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) notes that indoor air can be up to five times more polluted than outdoor air. Considering that the average person spends up to 90 percent of their time indoors, they are continuously exposed to dust mites, pet dander, pollen, mold, and toxins from conventional cleaning products and household items. These pollutants often manifest as allergy-like symptoms, such as itchy eyes, runny noses, and wheezing, but are actually due to an unclean living environment.

Furthermore, Elizabeth Scott, PhD, co-director of the Center for Hygiene and Health in Home and Community at Simmons College in Boston, found staphylococcus bacteria—a common cause of serious skin infections—in 26 percent of the tubs she tested, compared with just 6 percent of garbage cans. This highlights the hidden dangers of seemingly clean household areas.
