Everybody talks about how important spring cleaning is for the maintenance of your home and that’s absolutely true, but there is a lot more to the story. It looks like now is the perfect time to start thinking of (or doing) your spring cleaning. And we bet there are at least 5 less known benefits of that job you didn’t think about.
1. Spring Cleaning is Good for Your Mental Health
This may sound a little strange, but deep cleaning your home has been proven to improve people’s mental health. And if you spend a minute to really think about it, it makes sense. By physically cleaning your environment and freeing some space you also get clarity on your thoughts and release more mental capacity for new ideas, experiences and processing your feelings. Furthermore, spring cleaning will improve the air quality in your home, which will positively impact your sleep. A healthy sleep is crucial to a stable and healthy mind.
2. Welcome the Change
As you engage in deep cleaning, or you have it done for you, you will notice physical changes in your living environment. That could help you accept and welcome other changes in your life or in general. The most exciting one being the expiration of winter and arrival of spring. This season of revival there’s more good news to look forward to – slowly returning to our more normal way of living, working and socialising after a year of tough restrictions. That, together with the home transformation spring cleaning can bring, will certainly put you in a better mood and have you plan for the future.
3. Maintain a Healthy Home
Of course, it is not only our minds that benefit tremendously from a thorough clean of our environment. It is incredibly important for our bodies too. Regular domestic cleaning is a good step in ensuring your home is healthy and safe for all who live there, but it is simply not enough. Deep cleaning covers a lot more areas that may be overlooked most of the time and provides a thicker layer of protection against bacteria, germs and other harmful substances that may be hiding in hard-to-get places.
4. Pest Prevention
Most people start thinking about pest prevention when it is already too late. If you get infestation in your house that could cause a lot of problems. Then you start looking for ways to get rid of those unwanted guests and that could be quite hard in many cases. As the popular saying goes, prevention is better than cure. And so, spring cleaning is a great idea to minimise the risk of pest arrival in your cosy fortress. Food leftovers, children’s toys or other objects often go missing under the sofa or other heavy furniture and appliances. They could be an attraction or a good place to hide for many pests. By deep cleaning your home you give those little buggers less reason to join you inside.
5. Make Money in a Car Boot Sale
Spring cleaning is a brilliant opportunity for you to declutter your home and give away some of the stuff you don’t need or want anymore. But you don’t have to go all charitable. It’s actually a great way to make some extra money by selling some of that stuff in a car boot sale in front of your home or in some designated spaces
