There are many advantages to having a clean home, ranging from relieving stress to spending less money. Sometimes, a build-up of possessions can make it more difficult to clean, which is where professionals can help.

At ICE Cleaning, we are hoarder cleaning specialists. We put customer satisfaction at the front of everything we do, providing excellent customer support throughout the process, and using the latest technologies to achieve high cleaning standards.

Have a read of our blog to discover some of the key benefits of keeping your home in a clean condition.

Reduces the chance of injuries

Having a clean home means there is less of a build-up of belongings that are a slip and trip hazard. If there were to be a fire, it will help you get to the fire exit quicker if you have a clear pathway, as the emergency exits are not obstructed.

Severe injuries can result from falling over in your home, for instance if you were to trip on wires or something on the floor. To protect the well-being of yourself and your loved ones, stick to a regular cleaning schedule and keep possessions organised.

A large amount of belongings also encourages the presence of pests. They like to shelter inside, especially during the colder months, which there is plenty of opportunity for if the volume of possessions is high.

Possessions can be difficult to reach if they are far above the ground, especially if there are a lot of them. Our hoarder cleaners are IPAF-qualified, which enables them to work safely at height whilst also ensuring the area is returned to a safe condition.

It can help with your productivity

A clean space helps you concentrate on tasks more clearly, another advantage of keeping your home clean. Whether you organise your desk or clear out some of your cupboards, your productivity levels could see an increase.

You will find it easier to locate your belongings, as they have a place where they live. The urge to procrastinate is also lessened, as we often use cleaning as a distraction from tasks at work.

A clean atmosphere at home will also help the whole household be more productive and less prone to health implications. Dirt and grime build-up can trigger allergies and other symptoms, so it's best to keep on top of your cleaning. 

If you are finding it hard to throw your belongings away, get in touch with our team to discuss our hoarder cleaning services. We are fully qualified to dispose of unwanted items, including those of a biohazardous nature.

It helps with allergies

Common allergies people experience around the home come from dust, whether that comes from unclean surfaces or a vacuum cleaner that hasn't been emptied in a while.

You should also be careful to keep your home ventilated and the humidity levels between 30-50% according to Oxford City Council. This will help to prevent mould, which can trigger allergies and asthma. 

Should you notice mould in your home, call in the professionals to sort it as soon as possible. They will be able to effectively remediate the issue, using their specialist training to tackle the spores.

Cleaning surfaces and belongings is something that should always be on your cleaning list, and should be conducted several days a week. If someone in your home suffers from an allergy to dust, this needs to be done every day. 

Can relieve stress

When faced with a messy and dirty home, it can be frustrating and stressful. The tasks begin to pile up and you end up spending long periods of time on your housework.

This can cause you to become upset, especially if you're having guests over and what to impress them with the interior of your home. If you clean as you go, you can make your life less stressful.

Having a regular cleaning routine means that mess is dealt with promptly, and the cleaning tasks won't take as long because dirt hasn't had as long to embed itself in the surface. 

It also gives you more time to enjoy your home, including a hobby that you're not always able to complete because you're busy cleaning. 

You end up spending less money

Cleaning consistently has many benefits, including you spending less money, For instance, deep cleaning appliances periodically, and doing surface cleaning frequently, helps to sustain their life expectancy. 

As mentioned above, it is easier to locate belongings because there is less mess to look through. This means that you don't have to exert lots of energy and time into trying to find important household items.

Should dishes be left in the sink for long periods of time before being cleaned, this can make the food and crumbs harder to rid from plates and cutlery. Doing this task immediately will make the task quicker and less difficult.

Ensure you're always stocked up on cleaning products too, as this will mean they are easier to grab when you're about to undertake a clean.
