Why should I even care whether my house is clean?
A poorly maintained house can expose you and your family to various health hazards. For one, a dirty home can become a breeding ground for germs and bacteria, especially the areas that are moist and poorly ventilated (such as bathrooms and basements). By allowing germs to thrive in your living space, you are exposing yourselves to contamination and illness.
A clean house can reflect your good qualities as an individual. An organized and house implies that the owner of the house is also organized and clean. In the past, you may have refused to have family or friends over because you feel that your home is unsuitable for visits.
