A man uses a magnifying glass to search for bacteria around his home

These days, with more people working and studying from home, it’s no wonder the house seems messier and dirtier. But being stuck at home doesn’t mean there’s more time for housework. With no one to help lighten the workload and the umpteenth Zoom team call of the day, imagining this to be the “new normal” can be a disheartening thought.

The silver lining is that social distancing also means you’re less likely to get an unannounced visitor so if the weekend’s dishes are still in the sink, don’t sweat it. What you should be worried about is the dirt and dust that seems to be EVERYWHERE. Not only can dust make your home look and feel dirty, it can also impact your health in the form of particulates that clog your nose and lungs as well as bacteria that exist within them. One study found that the average shoe sole is covered with more than 400,000 bacteria, with 90 percent of those germs transferring directly to a clean tile floor on first contact.1
