The New Year is, of course, a time that many people look to start anew in many areas of their lives. They make resolutions to turn a new leaf and improve their quality of life by taking on new habits, letting go of old ones, or changing how they currently do something. We can all agree that trying to improve or make goals is a noble feat.
Some people can get overwhelmed with making their resolutions because they are not sure where to start or how they really will be able to accomplish the things they want to accomplish, or even what they truly want to accomplish. If this is you may we suggest to not beat yourself up and overthink, or buy into needing to resolve to tackle some huge thing? The best way to attain and be successful with a resolution is to start small.
One way to start small is to resolve to have a cleaner and healthier home in the new year. This may sound like a large goal, but it really doesn’t take much to put into action. You can start with the simple task of calling in a professional deep cleaner to remove all of the deep down dirt and grime that regular home cleaning can’t reach. A great place to start is with the floors: carpets, tile grout, and the crevices between hardwood floorboards are home to a number of different unseen germs, bacteria, dirt, etc.
Here are some dirty facts about rugs and carpets alone:
- A carpet that looks clean to the naked eye can harbor as much as a pound of dirt per square yard.
- Carpets inside homes can be about seven times dirtier than a city street.
- One ounce of carpet dust is enough to house 2,000 dust mites.
- 80% of the dirt and grime in your home got there on the soles of shoes carried in from outside.
- Allergens love to settle into carpet and get kicked up with foot traffic irritating the respiratory systems of anyone inside.
Because so much can settle deep down into the surfaces of our floors the EPA recommends annual professional deep cleanings to truly clean and sanitize these spaces.
A great way to start off the year with a healthier home is to call someone in to do the work for you. That’s right, accomplishing your goals for a cleaner and healthier home can be as simple as picking up the phone. Once it is done you will feel a rush of accomplishment and be ready to take on the next resolution.
