It’s that wonderful time of year again. The days are getting longer, there is more rainfall than snowfall, and of course, it is finally warm outside. Spring is a long-awaited time for many American homeowners. Spring also marks the beginning of the time-honored tradition of spring cleaning. A recent 2019 survey shows that more people will be spring cleaning this year than any year prior. That is why we have compiled this guide to spring cleaning this.
A Clean Home is a Happy Home
There are many studies that show the correlation of a clean organized home on a resident’s mental health. Clutter, hoarding, and disorganization can have a negative impact on personal happiness. Some argue this is why spring cleaning exists in the first place. Spring brings a time to refresh after a long cold winter. With the increased sunlight, it feels like there are more hours in the day to get things done. Still, many homeowners feel that they don’t know where to start when cleaning. According to a recent survey conducted by the American Cleaning Institute, 25% of homeowners do not feel they clean everything properly, and 33% don’t feel they clean enough. The effects of a clean home should be optimized.
How To Get The Most Out Of Spring Cleaning
There are a few strategies you should consider when it comes to cleaning up your home this spring. First, what areas of the home get overlooked? Cleaning appliances like your refrigerator, laundry machines, and around your bathroom floors can make all the difference. If you have filters, consider replacing them. Another important question is how can you improve the way you clean areas of your home you always clean. One solution is to buy better cleaning equipment. Other homeowners hire a cleaning company to do a quick run through their home. Having this done periodically is very impactful. Much like the relationship between seeing a dentist once or twice a year and cleaning your teeth daily, having professional cleaners come once or twice a year can help address the areas that are often missed or not cleaned thoroughly.
A Clean Office is a Productive Office
Your home is not the only area that needs cleaning this spring. The effects of a clean office are just as impactful to mental health as a clean home. Spring is a great time to consider cleaning out the breakroom refrigerator, tidying up and reorganizing your office and having the floors vacuumed. However, for many people working in offices, you are not paid to clean up. Just like with homes, and it can be very beneficial to have a professional cleaning service, (beyond your typical building janitor) do a full cleaning of your office over a weekend.
