Top Health Benefits Of Vacuum Cleaning Your Home

The humble vacuum cleaner revolutionised the way we clean our homes. Not only in making the weekly cleaning faster but also in making the home cleaner. A sparkling clean home (not literally) not only looks great but comes with plenty of health benefits. 

At Briscoes, we have a large selection of vacuum cleaners. So, we’re always preaching the benefits of using one around the home. In this guide, we’ve collated what we think are the top health benefits of regularly vacuuming. It doesn’t matter if you use a vacuum cleaner that is cordless or a mop and vacuum in one, the benefits are the same. A vacuum cleaner is a fantastic way to remove germs and other nasties from surfaces. Let’s get started!

Why it’s important to prioritise your health at home

The average Kiwi spends a lot of their life at home. Especially since the COVID-19 pandemic, more and more people are also opting to work from home. Because of this, the home environment has a huge role to play in influencing overall health and well-being. Your home should feel like a safe haven or oasis in an ideal world. You should be able to relax and unwind without worrying about getting sick or having negative health implications. If you don’t prioritise a healthy home environment, it may impact your health and your relationships. 

How a vacuum cleaner works

To really appreciate the health benefits of vacuum cleaners, you first need to get an understanding of how they work. Although it changes from model to model, in most cases, a vacuum cleaner works by using a motor to spin a fan. As this fan spins, it then sucks in small dust and debris. This same fan then pushed this air and debris out into a bag or canister to create negative pressure. The mechanics are generally the same whether you have a vacuum cleaner that is bagless or one that has a bag.
