If a better aesthetic isn't enough of a reason to reach for the rubber gloves, then we think these 10 health benefits will absolutely convince you commit to a more intensive cleaning schedule. We don't think you'll believe just how much of a positive impact cleaning can have on your life, so come with us now, as we prove it to you!

1. It'll make you healthier.

Do you know how ill dust and grime can make you? Simply vacuuming regularly will have a significant impact on respiratory disorders, such as asthma and dust allergies, and will leave you feeling as though you can breath far more easily.

2. Your mind will be uncluttered.

As you tidy a home, you will naturally start thinking about everything that you want to get organised and sorted, which will leave you with a plan and a sense of having things together. Mental lists are as good as physical ones!

3. Anxiety levels will drop.
