If you’re sequestered at home, you’re probably prepping and cleaning up after three meals a day plus snacks. And the laundry is starting to pile up. While there’s no place like home, being stuck there means there’s no escape from housework. But in this technological age, you don’t have to do everything alone. While our great-grandparents rejoiced over the first vacuum cleaners, we’ve got smart home gadgets to make life easier.

You’d think that by spending more time at home, you’d be able to keep your house cleaner. But strange things start happening when you’re stuck in your house. Time speeds up, and hours slip away. Before you know it, the entire day has gone by and you still haven’t mopped the kitchen floor like you had planned in the morning. You’ve always wanted to invest in some smart home cleaning gadgets, but nothing prepared you for this. Don’t give up. You don’t have to live in a messy house for the next few months. Nor should you.

According to Psychology Today, a study led by associate professor NiCole R. Keith, a research scientist and professor at Indiana University, found that people who have clean houses are healthier than those with untidy homes. So keeping your house clean is good for your health. And if you’re one of those people who can’t work in a cluttered space, you’re not alone. A 2011 Princeton University study found that clutter overwhelms the visual cortex and makes it more difficult to focus on a particular task.

You want to deal with the clutter and crumbs that have been accumulating in your house over the last weeks. But you know that the minute you tidy it all, something else will get messy. It’s a vicious cycle. But there are ways to keep your house consistently clean with minimal effort. Especially in this technological age. It’s time to build, or add to, your arsenal of smart home cleaning gadgets to keep your house clean while you’re stuck in it.
