A yearly deep clean is a tradition in many homes! Whether you and your household have been cleaning for years or have decided to make this your first true deep clean, it’s helpful to know why we feel the urge to clean once warm weather and longer days come along.

In the past, spring cleaning was tied to cleaning out soot and grime that was caused by keeping a home warm all winter with fires and kerosene. Warm weather meant no more fires, and that soot could be scrubbed away. While we don’t spend winter burning coal in our homes anymore, throwing open the windows and giving your home a deep clean is a great way to get a fresh start. Continue reading to learn more about why you should do spring cleaning, and if you’d rather leave the cleaning to the professionals, contact Best Clean Ever in Raleigh for house cleaning services! We can come for a one-time deep clean or you can schedule regular house cleaning — whatever works for you. 

Why Is Spring Cleaning Important?

It’s a chance to reset and give yourself a fresh start after being cooped inside over the winter. It’s a great chance to catch up on those cleaning tasks that require a little more work or that you’ve been thinking about all year. Maybe you’ve been thinking about how you need to scour the bathroom tile or reorganize that basement closet. Spring cleaning is a great time to knock those tasks out!

Spring cleaning is also a great time to do home maintenance chores, like sealing granite, cleaning out your dryer, scheduling HVAC maintenance, or any other big home maintenance project you know you’ve been putting off. Tying these tasks to spring cleaning is a great way to make sure that you remember to do them. 

How Do I Start?

We’ve got a couple of great blogs with specific cleaning tips, check out our Spring Cleaning Tips blog post or our Kitchen Cleaning Tips for more in-depth guides. In general, though, start with the task that’s the most challenging for you. Maybe it’s cleaning the exterior windows and blinds. Or washing your bed pillows. Starting there will give you the momentum you need to continue. 

Also, know that you don’t have to clean your whole home in one day! Make a list and start with the projects that will have the biggest effect and let you touch every room in the home. Take breaks, get the whole household involved, and soon you’ll start feeling the joy of a fresh, clean home!
