Why Do We Spring Clean Our Homes?
Alright maybe we don’t have enough of a “spring” to really call it Spring Cleaning, but it’s a great time to remind ourselves to double down on home cleaning!
Clean For Emotional Reasons
Living in a clean, healthy space has been proven to boost happiness and self-esteem. Not only does cleaning give you a sense of pride and accomplishment, but it also pays dividends on your overall feeling about your home. You can feel more at home in your own space when it’s cleaned and organized!
It’s a good idea to set a time once or twice a year in which you’ll be all-in on home cleaning. That way, you’ll have a goal to accomplish and you’ll procrastinate less!
Clean For Health Reasons
A clean home is a healthy home. That is the biggest thing we advocate for! Deep cleaning leads to better indoor air quality, a reduction of microbial growth and the added benefit that your carpet and other furnishings will last longer.
One of the best decisions you’ll make when deep cleaning is having your carpets professionally cleaned. It’s almost unbelievable how much dirt and grime carpets pick up! When they get full of dirt, they no longer help filter out the air in your home so cleaning carpets really does lead to better indoor air.
Clean Tile & Grout
Mold and mildew in your home is a big no-no. Too often, tile and grout all over the house are totally forgotten about for months or even years! Clean them with bleach and be sure to wipe down the entire surface. If the grout is cracking or there’s just too much of a waste, feel free to call Great American Chem-Dry!
Organize the Garage
Need we say much more? It’s a pretty incredible feeling when you pull into an organized garage. Buy some plastic tubs and get things put away!
Once or twice a year, your couches and loveseats should be deep-cleaned. Just think about how often you sit on those things! Make them feel comfy and healthy with a professional cleaning.
