Why the End of Winter is the Perfect Time to Have Your Space Deep Cleaned
By: Brittany Satterfield

The cooler temps of winter probably have you spending more time cooped up and confined indoors. As nature moves beyond the dark and chilly months of the winter season, you may be eager to get outdoors. The last thing you’ll want to do is commit to taking up the sponge and duster for a round of spring cleaning.

Stick with that train of thought, because the perfect time to have your house cleaned is at the end of winter. Step into Spring on the right foot with a spotless, shining space that sets the standard for the warmer months ahead. Having your space deep cleaned as winter comes to an end can help boost the health of your household as the cold fades.

Deep Cleaning Kills Bacteria and Germs Lurking in Your Home

In addition to cold wet weather, the winter months can often bring illnesses along. Colds, flu, and respiratory viruses tend to circulate when you move indoors where proximity with others is close and the air circulation decreases. Waiting for Spring to deep clean your space can mean yesterday’s illness becomes tomorrow’s illness, too.

Deep cleaning does more than kill the germs lingering on your surfaces. It also denies bacteria places to hide, such as in layers of dust or hidden corners your mop never reaches. Your household will stay healthier once you remove all traces of winter viruses.

Deep Cleaning Improves the Air Quality in Your Home

Your furnace filter has done all it can to keep your air clean. However, an increased amount of time spent inside means more particulates swirling around your home. The only way to improve your air quality is removing the pollutants that make it unhealthy.

Deep cleaning can improve the air quality in your home by:

  • Removing dust from ceiling fans, door jambs, and other surfaces where particles collect.
  • Thorough vacuuming of your space, including forgotten areas such as under beds and behind furniture.
  • Cleaning windows, blinds, and other dust-collecting surfaces.

Deep Cleaning Helps Prevent Insect and Rodent Invasions

Insects and rodents are tenacious survivors. Once they find sources of food and shelter, they do their best to stay, despite efforts to remove them. The best way to keep them out of your home for good is to ensure they never want to take up residence at all.

A deep cleaning of your home before pest season can help prevent infestations. Ants, spiders, and other undesirable invaders will have to look elsewhere for residency when becoming active again this year.

Deep Cleaning Your Home Can Brighten Your Mood

The last weeks of winter can feel like they drag on for years, especially if time spent indoors has left your home feeling worn-in and glum. Your regular housekeeping routine may not be enough to make your space feel welcoming again.

Deep cleaning can refresh your home and lift your spirits during the last stretch of the winter season. Leaving your space looking great, smelling nice, and feeling brighter than it did before you had it scrubbed can be a fantastic pick-me-up before Spring.
