The season to clean has come around once again. Did you know that spring cleaning provides many benefits to a person’s mental health and immune system. Let’s explore some of the reasons that spring cleaning can be highly beneficial to your life.
Surprisingly, spring cleaning can make you work up a sweat, especially cleaning while listening to your favourite tunes. Jobs such as scrubbing showers and moving around furniture to clean behind or underneath will increase your activity levels and improve your physical health.
Most people know that sleeping on a fresh set of bed sheets can be beneficial for your sleeping patterns, but on the other hand, not changing your sheets can lead to issues such as allergies or poor hygiene. Make sure you have multiple sets of sheets, so you can have a replacement on your bed, while the other set is in the wash or drying.
Injuries can occur in cluttered home environments, which is yet another good reason to declutter during a spring clean. Securing furniture or tacking cords onto walls is a good starting point to having a safer home to walk around.
Help Your Immune System
Dust, mold and mildew are small things that can have a detrimental affect on your immune system. To avoid allergies, it is best to regularly clean your home, but a proper deep spring clean will get to the certain areas you don’t normally get to during your regular cleaning routine. Dusting furniture and wet-vacuuming rugs or carpet are simple tasks that make living at home a more healthy experience.
Improve Your Mental Health
It has been said living in a cluttered environment can lead to a negative mindset and affect your attention span. Furthermore, a spring clean allows you to throw away unwanted items and refresh your home for a more relaxed living environment.
Keep Pests Away
Having an unclean living space can attract nasty pests that can leave your home unhygienic. We recommend you regularly, but especially during a spring clean, spray and wipe down certain areas that can attract unwanted rodents or insects. These areas could include the garbage bin and around the base of your fridge.
Another reason to undertake a spring clean is to improve your productivity. Having a messy lounge room or study area can be distracting and lead to an unpleasant living space. Just take the time this spring to clean and tidy where you study, so as to be ready to focus on what is important.
An Inviting Home
When having guests over, you need to have an inviting home free from clutter and mess. You want to make your home look and feel appealing, especially if having guests over who you are wanting to return for future visits. Now that spring is here, many people will be wanting to visit one another more frequently and there is no better time than now, to prepare for hosting these visitors in what can be a nice clean home.
It may be tiring thinking about spring cleaning your home, but now knowing the overwhelming benefits of a clean and tidy home, should provide you the motivation to clean. Time to stop reading and make a start on your 2022 spring clean.
