While having a nice clean house can enhance your mood, it is also important for your physical health. You should plan to do a deep clean every few months.

“During a deep clean,  get rid of expired food items that could make someone sick, and spend extra time cleaning areas you may normally neglect because it’s more time-intensive,” says advanced practice nurse, Allie Campo. “A deep clean may help to reduce the number of potential viruses and allergens in your home,  helping you and your family stay healthy.”
