Now more than ever we are living in an unprecedented and chaotic time. Covid-19 and lockdown have completely turned all our lives upside down into an unfamiliar state, affecting the lives of millions. Unexpectedly, cleaning may ease some of those stresses.

We all know that prioritising cleaning our home is good for our physical health. However, what are the ways it plays a positive role in our mental health?

Studies show that more than two-thirds of adults in the UK (69%) report feeling somewhat or very distressed about the effects COVID-19 is having on their life. The most common issues affecting wellbeing are worries about the future (63%), and feeling stressed or anxious. If you are among those people, this helpful guide is for you. We also have a handy guide here on how to manage anxiety, as and when it strikes.


It’s easy to make space for other priorities in your life which you may deem as more important; including work schedules, making sure you eat three times a day and even looking after a pet or two. This is more than understandable, as long as you don’t neglect cleaning!

Cleaning can be the foundation of maintaining a packed day-to-day lifestyle. Simply organizing the state of your house helps keep things in order, aiding in a more organized house and mind.

Putting this into practice increases the value in which you can carry out your day-to-day tasks. This is because you are not walking around in a cluttered space. Another benefit is that you can find where things in the house are positioned better, which gives you more time to do your tasks successfully! 

Cleaning increases your serotonin level, as well as leading to higher self-esteem and a sense of accomplishment. Even prioritising cleaning your property 15 minutes a day can go a long way and contribute to a cleaner, happier lifestyle in general.

Arguments surrounding the topic of cleaning can rapidly become a common issue for people living in shared households. Typically centred around why the house is not clean, and who is and who is not putting in effort in maintaining a clean house.

Although these discussions are common they can lead to an unhealthy environment within the house. This can inevitably affect your performance at work and also inhibit your social life.

Living in a disruptive household due to issues about cleanliness can greatly affect your mental health; however, by applying cleaning into your everyday schedule, you will lessen the turmoil. This will allow you to feel happier and more confident at home. You will also reap the benefits of feeling more connected to other members of the house because you are all making an effort in achieving the same goal. This will inevitably ease off a lot of stress in your life. 


If you are a landlord, one of your priorities is maintaining a successful business. To do this, your properties must be in pristine conditions to satisfy and accommodate your tenants, to continue your success track.

Not only is it advantageous for business, but it also strengthens your relationship with your tenants. It’s important to distribute properties in top clean conditions because it reflects on your business and even who you are as an individual. 

This positive habit of cleanliness could help foster relationships with tenants and ensure you attract new ones in future.

Of course, the only way to benefit from a clean home is to have a home in the first place! Looking for your perfect new place? Sign up with Clooper here today, and let us help you find it!
