A clean house is best home.
We must keep our house clean. In addition to our house, we should also keep our surroundings clean. Clean house and its surroundings keep us healthy.
1) Do not throw garbage around
We clean our house but carelessly throw the garbage outside our houses in open places. This is a very bad habit. This should be avoided. The household garbage should be kept in closed dustbins. The dustbins should be taken to municipal bins or garbage dumps for this purpose. These bins should be away from the houses and should be covered. Municipal trucks carry this garbage away from city. It is generally burnt.
2) Do not allow dirty water to stagnate near your house
Waste water should not be allowed to flow on the open space outside and get collected. There should be no standing water inside or outside our house. Mosquitoes breed in standing water and spread malaria. We should dispose of waste water through drains. The drains should also be properly covered.
3) Proper Latrine system
We should have a proper sanitary latrine system in our houses.
In big cities, most people have a flush system in their latrines. This system keeps the latrines clean and free from flies and foul smell.
4) Sheds and stables should be kept clean
If we keep domestic animals or pets, they should be kept in stables and sheds. These should be kept clean to keep away flies. If these are not clean, files will carry germs from the dirt into nearby homes. These should be cleaned with phenyl.
5) Never spit in the open
Spitting in the open is bad habit. Spitting in open attracts flies and makes our surroundings dirty.
So we must keep our surroundings clean to stay healthy.
