Spring Cleaning Time! 4 Benefits of a Deep House Cleaning
It’s that time of year, the flowers are blooming, the birds are chirping, and your house is still full of all the clutter and filth from being neglected through the long cold months of winter. Let’s be honest you know that it needs to be done, but spring cleaning is definitely a task that you avoid as long as possible. Here are a few reasons to get your butt in gear (or hire someone else to handle it for you!)
Stuffy noses and colds are synonymous with winter, right? Don’t let those symptoms roll over into the warmer months due to excess dust in your home. Dust can gather in all kinds of places, in rugs that haven’t been properly cleaned for a whole season, under the couch that hasn’t been moved in a while, and in all those nooks and crannies that have been overlooked for far too long. Now that it’s warmer the time is perfect to take the rugs outside for a good cleaning and pop open the windows to enjoy some fresh air while you move around furniture to reach trapped dust. Your sinuses will thank you.
2. You get to re-decorate-
Even if you aren’t purchasing any new pieces for your home spring is the perfect time to rearrange. You’re going to be moving the furniture, removing decorative pieces, and adjusting items on shelves anyways when you go to dust, so why not try a fun new seating arrangement? You can start with moving smaller pieces, and if you get ambitious (or want to pass the task off to someone else) go for a whole new display of furniture in your living room. You will feel like you have a whole new house, a pristinely cleaned one at that!
3. There’s nothing better than a clean house-
You know that feeling of getting into bed with freshly washed sheets, your pillows are all nice and fluffed, all you want to do is sink into your bed and never leave? That’s what spring cleaning is like, except it is for your whole house. Cooking in a deep cleaned kitchen, taking a bath in a freshly detailed bathroom, and relaxing on a newly washed sofa is so much more enjoyable! I find that a clean house leads to less stress, and is much easier to keep up with. Do yourself a favor and start with a clean slate for spring so that upkeep will be much easier once nicer weather rolls in!
4. You will save money-
A good deep cleaning regularly throughout the year can actually save you money in the long run. Think about your house like your teeth, the more you clean them and take care of them the less expensive your dental visits will be. Same thing with your home, if you make sure to keep your furniture, rugs, and appliances in tip top shape they will last a lot longer. Go ahead and tackle spring cleaning yourself or call in the professionals for upkeep to avoid unnecessary expenses down the road.
At this point you’re probably thinking about the living room area rug that hasn’t been deep cleaned since 2014 and the weird corner in the kitchen that catches all the crumbs, so go ahead and gather your supplies or contact SayClean we will handle it for you!
