Is Spring Cleaning Just for spring

Whenever spring comes around, talk tends to lean towards the subject of spring cleaning. The tradition of spring cleaning tends to go back to the days when people heated their homes by burning fossil fuels and wood. The soot from these fires would make the interior of many homes dirty with soot, and therefore, when the better weather arrived in the spring, that was seen as the time to really clean the house from top to bottom. In this article, we will look at why cleaning should be carried out at other times of the year other than just at springtime.

Of course, most of us do not heat our homes in this way anymore and our homes are no dirtier than they were at the beginning of the winter months. However, the need to spring clean persists to this day, and a lot of people still have the urge to clean their homes when the weather improves.

The Background to the term ‘Spring Cleaning’

However, for a lot of people, the thought of cleaning their entire home from top to bottom is not one that fills them with glee, and instead they will look to hire a spring cleaning Phoenix company to complete the task for them. Yet, why wait until spring to hire such a company, when they are available all year round?

With the term ‘Spring Cleaning’ etched in our psyche, it is easy to forget that cleaning can be completed at any time of the year. With soot from coal or wood fires no longer a big problem; there are other problems that a homeowner can face such as dust and clutter, and these need to be dealt with on a regular basis.

The Importance of Year Round Cleaning

If you have accumulated a lot of possessions over time, there is often a need to clear the clutter from your home, and with dust, pollen and other airborne pollutants entering our homes on a daily basis, cleaning all year round is important. The problem with leaving your big cleaning event to just one specific time of the year means that the task becomes more of a chore as well as taking longer. In order to make things easier it is advisable to tackle the cleaning of your home at regular intervals of the year, as opposed to leaving it to the spring.
