As winter begins to recede back and we try to come out from hibernation, we start to notice a few things that were overlooked in favor of staying warm. Cleaning is one of the last things you feel like doing if you’re cold and uncomfortable, but spring changes all that. If you’re not one for spring cleaning, we hope to show you why spring cleaning is so important for your home.
Improved Air Quality
Unless you’ve been cleaning all throughout winter, your home most likely has some buildup, both of things in general as well as dust. A thorough spring cleaning is crucial to making sure your home’s air is healthy to breathe. Dust and allergens that build up over the long winter need to be removed, especially with the onset of the allergy season that is spring. You don’t want to deal with bad air in your house as well.
There’s nothing like a cluttered and messy home to put a spike in your stress levels. Doing some real spring cleaning can help this in two ways:
- Not having to see and deal with a large mess all the time will reduce the amount of stress your home causes you.
- The act of cleaning itself is empowering and relaxing at the same time, easing the stress on your shoulders.
Cleaning doesn’t have to be stressful; it can also be therapeutic. Be methodical as you go from room to room and you’ll have an easier time.
We all wish we could be more productive at home, which is another reason why spring cleaning is so important. By decluttering, you’re allowing yourself easier access to the things you need when you need them. It’s important to note that this doesn’t just include cleaning; it also involves reorganizing for a more efficient system of where everything goes.
If you’ve never heard the term “visual noise” before, you might not realize the effect that excess clutter has on your brain. The more stimulation there is to focus on with your eyes, the harder your brain has to work to process all of it. By removing clutter and getting rid of messes, you provide your brain with some relief and it will be easier to focus on the current task at hand.
