We’ve all been taught since we were children that keeping our homes tidy and germ-free, or hiring Maryland house cleaning services to do it for us, is one of the most important things we can do for ourselves and our loved ones.
But why is this so?
Why do people place so much importance on house cleaning, especially if a member of their household has been sick recently?
What’s the worst thing that can happen if you don’t clean your house?
We’ll be answering these questions in the following blog post. Continue reading to learn more!
What happens when you don’t clean your house?

We absolutely aren’t exaggerating when we say that not cleaning your home can and will ruin your life.
Not only is it unhealthy in every way you can think of, it can also have broader effects on many other aspects of your life.
Here’s what you can expect if you never clean your place:
1. You get physically sick
Bacteria, viruses, parasites, fungi, molds, pests, and other dangerous and gross organisms thrive in dirty, stale environments. A home that doesn’t get the cleaning attention it needs will eventually become a hotbed of disease.
The health problems this can create vary from unpleasant side-effects such as headaches, coughing, and allergic reactions, to severe viral and bacterial infections (and yes, these include COVID-19) that can cause long-term organ damage and even life-threatening complications.
2. Your mental health suffers as well
People who live in a grimy, cluttered, and chaotic environment tend to be antisocial, stressed out, less active, less motivated, prone to depression, and more likely to become addicted to alcohol, drugs, and cigarettes.
What’s more, clutter makes it more likely that your belongings will get damaged, or that you won’t find them when you need them. This can result in a considerable amount of frustration on any given day.
3. Your social and professional life takes a hit
You can’t really invite friends, colleagues, and romantic interests over if your home is a mess. Or you can, but they’ll be unlikely to ever come back again, and they’ll probably start calling you a slob behind your back.
Furthermore, even if you regularly wash your clothes, storing them in a dirty home will still prevent them from looking and smelling fresh. All this will almost certainly have a negative impact on your future prospects.

4. It can get you evicted
Many rental lease agreements require the tenant to take good care of the home they’re renting. If your landlord finds out you’re treating their property like a pigsty, they won’t hesitate to throw you out and warn other landlords in the area about you.
What’s more, lack of cleaning is one of the major reasons why a landlord may refuse to give the tenant back their initial security deposit.
If you want to get your money back, you’ll need to make sure the place is at least passably clean.
