4 Health Risks In An Unclean House
1. Dust and Dirt Borne Diseases
Leave a book sitting on your desk for a week and lift it to see the rectangular portion left free of dust under it. Dust is probably one of the biggest hassles to deal with because there’s just no stopping it from entering our homes. Be it through windows and doors or shoes and clothes coming in from outside, it sneaks a way in. Excessive dust in the air can risk causing inflammation of the trachea and bronchi. It might start with mild sneezing and a runny nose but can later develop into serious respiratory illnesses.
2. Food Borne Diseases
Do you know why your mom always asks you to clean your plate and not eat on the bed? That’s because bread crumbs and food bits inevitably fall on the ground or the upholstery and remain there until they rot. They can also attract bugs and critters. This poses a major health risk because they can lead to diarrhea in young children (which can lead to bleeding if worsened) and stomach cramps! If you have babies in the house, you don’t want them putting dirty rotten food in the mouth.
3. Dirty-Bathroom Diseases
If you don’t clean your bathroom daily, there are high chances of the presence of pathogens and bacteria in there. Since it is a moist area, the dampness can lead to mold and mildew forming on the walls and floor. Unclean toilet seats can also lead to urinary tract infections, kidney damage, diarrhea, and other allergies. Beware the threats that lie within! If you’re forgetting that wet bath tubs and floors can cause dangerous falls, you’re seriously underestimating the risk of dirty bathrooms. Plus, moisture is the source of all bacteria formation so you need to keep it clean and dry.
4. Bacteria and Germs
The unwashed dishes, the leaky faucets, the un-thrown garbage and the clogged drains are all sources of germs and breeding ground for bacteria. You can leave the dishes unwashed overnight but there’s no guarantee that your kids will not contract diarrhea, cholera, dysentery or kidney infections! Be careful before it gets worse.
