How To Keep Your Home Healthy On National "No Housework Day" (And Other Days When You Don't Feel Like Cleaning!)

Embrace the "No Housework" spirit, not the mess! National No Housework Day encourages a well-deserved break from the routine of chores and cleaning. While this day allows for relaxation and rejuvenation, maintaining a healthy and clean home environment is crucial for our well-being throughout the year. Fortunately, even when cleaning isn't your top priority, there are several simple and effective strategies you can implement to keep your home healthy and comfortable, regardless of your motivation level.

Prevention Is Key

The secret to minimizing the need for deep cleaning lies in preventative measures. Here are some effective ways to maintain a clean and healthy home environment with minimal effort:

1. Become a "shoes-off" household

This simple habit prevents dirt, dust, and allergens tracked in from outside from becoming ingrained in your carpets and floors. Consider placing a stylish shoe tray near the entryway for easy removal and storage.

2. Wash doormats regularly

Both the indoor and outdoor doormats trap dirt and debris, so regular cleaning (washing or shaking them out) is essential. Consider purchasing a double doormat system, where one mat collects the bulk of debris outside, and a clean, welcoming mat greets guests inside.

3. Embrace natural ventilation

Weather permitting, open windows to allow fresh air to circulate. This helps improve air quality and reduces the build-up of stale air and potential allergens. Aim for at least 15-20 minutes of ventilation daily, especially after cooking or showering.

4. Declutter regularly

Clutter-free surfaces are easier to clean and maintain, and they prevent dust from accumulating. Dedicate 10-15 minutes daily to decluttering a specific area, like your desk or kitchen counter. This can significantly reduce the overall clutter over time, making cleaning a breeze.

Rack-Up Quick Wins On Busy Days

Even on days when you're short on time or energy, there are quick and easy cleaning hacks you can incorporate into your routine:

1. The 10-minute tidy-up challenge

Set a timer for 10 minutes and challenge yourself to pick up clutter, straighten furniture, and wipe down surfaces. You'll be surprised at how much you can accomplish in a short burst! Make this a fun activity by playing upbeat music or involving family members for a team effort.

2. Multitasking magic

Combine activities whenever possible. For example, listen to podcasts or audiobooks while folding laundry or dusting surfaces. This way, you're cleaning while catching up on your favorite content, maximizing your time efficiently.

3. Share the load

If you live with others, delegate cleaning responsibilities and establish a chore chart to ensure everyone contributes. This fosters a sense of shared responsibility and reduces the burden on any single individual.

4. Tackle spills immediately

Addressing spills promptly prevents them from setting in and becoming more difficult to clean later. Keep readily accessible cleaning supplies in areas prone to spills, like the kitchen and bathroom, for swift action.

Embrace Smarter Solutions

Technology can be a valuable ally in maintaining a clean and healthy home with minimal effort. Consider these smart solutions:

1. Robotic vacuum cleaners

These automated devices can help maintain clean floors by vacuuming dust, dirt, and pet hair regularly. Schedule your robot vacuum to run while you're at work or enjoying leisure time, ensuring clean floors with minimal effort.

2. Air purifiers

When it comes to maintaining a clean and healthy home, air quality is just as important as tidying up surfaces. This is where Coway air purifiers shine–especially on days like National No Housework Day when you want to take a break from cleaning chores without compromising your living space's cleanliness and comfort.

Remember, maintaining a healthy and comfortable home environment doesn't require spending hours cleaning. By implementing these simple strategies and embracing the philosophy of "less is more," you can ensure a clean and healthy haven, even on days when "no housework" is the motto! Utilize preventative measures, leverage quick cleaning hacks, and explore smart solutions to make cleaning a manageable and efficient task, allowing you to enjoy more relaxation and peace of mind in your healthy and comfortable home.

1Coway air purifiers have been proven to trap dust, pollen, dander, viruses and bacteria in the air based on KCL (Korea Conformity Laboratories) testing.They have been tested in a 30㎥ size chamber according to the Korea Air Cleaning Association standard (SPS-KACA 002-132:2022 Modified) to measure the 0.01㎛ size of particle removal rate. It was tested on maximum airflow speed in normal room temperature and humidity conditions. The performance may vary in the actual living environment of customers.

3Aerosol test conducted in a Biosafety level 3 laboratory with two Coway air purifier models, Coway Airmega 250 and 400 for removal of SARS-CoV-2 Aerosol by US based MRI Global, a not-for-profit laboratory and partner of US Department of Defense. The test was conducted in a 13.1ft3 chamber. Virus was aerosolized for 15 minutes and the product was turned on high for 2 minutes. Result showed each product effectively removed over 99.98% of the SARS-CoV-2 in 2 minutes. This is a result from a laboratory experiment condition and result may vary in different conditions. This result does not imply it kills SARS-CoV-2 or prevents the transmission of Covid-19. Coway Airmega 250S and 400S are identical to the tested models and has equal performance with an additional mobile connectivity function.

4The concentration of ammonia, acetaldehyde and acetic acid were proven to be removed within 30 minutes by FCG Research Institute, Inc. Human Life Science Lab. It is not a demonstration result in the actual use space. Not all odors and gases may be supported. → Tested with Coway Airmega 150, 160, AP-1512HH, AP-1512HHS, 400, 400S

5The coverage area of the air purifier is based on an area where the air cleaner can make two air changes per hour (ACPH). An air change per hour translates to how many times an air purifier can clean an area, assuming the height of a ceiling to be 8 ft, in one hour. Therefore ** means two air changes per hour means that the cleaner can clean the area once every 30 minutes and * means air changes per hour means that the air purifier can clean the area once every 60 minutes.
