Add Plants To Each Room
Plants are a great addition to the house. They provide oxygen, they can purify the air and help prevent allergy reactions just by having them around. They are also known to be very calming and help reduce anxiety.
There are so many different plants available and some are easier to care for than others so even if you don’t have a green thumb there will be something that you will be able to have.
There is also a lot of advice and help online on the best way to look after different plants and how to keep them healthy.
Help Reduce Moisture In The Air
One of the main issues that contribute towards mold growing in the home is moisture in the air. This is very apparent in the winter when it is warm inside and cold on the outside as it can cause condensation on the walls. After a while, this will end up with mold growing on the walls and can sometimes be hidden by furniture and other things so it is always best to prevent it as much as possible.
You can do this by getting a commercial dehumidifier. This will help remove moisture from the air and take the humidity away.
Decluttering Is A Great Thing To Start With
A lot of houses can look messy simply by just having a lot of stuff everywhere. Sometimes, having too many things can make rooms look cluttered and messy and also then become more and more surfaces for the dust to accumulate.
Spring cleaning is always a great thing to do and you don’t just have to do it in the spring, you can do it at any time. Simply grab some bin bags and boxes and go through your belongings. You can sort into piles of keep, throw away and donate.
Then the things you are going to keep you can put back, things you are going to donate you can give to friends, family or even to a charity and if things are just not in good condition or broken then they can go in the bin.
Minimal Is Key
Living a more minimal life will help contribute towards a more clean and fresh home, you won’t have a lot of clutter, things will be easier to clean and keep on top of as well.
Our society is so focused on consumerism and always buying new things but it isn’t sustainable, we need to focus on recycling, reusing and repurposing things. It will help contribute towards a clean, fresh and happy home. There is a lot of advice on being minimal online.
