Spring Cleaning Time: Makes Your Home Cleaner and Healthier
It's spring cleaning time, the season when we brush off the stunted growth of winter by cleaning every surface. This annual ritual will restore and renovate the appearance of your home, but there is another even more important reason for performing these tasks - your family's health.
Did you know that your home is a huge germ collector in the winter months? The windows are closed and air doesn't move much, so when family members come down with colds and flu, germs have a heyday bouncing around and collecting on every surface. This greater exposure to germs impacts the healthfulness of our homes.
Once those warm spring breezes begin to blow, lift the windows so clean air can fill your home and replace the dust and stale air winter creates. A good and thorough house cleaning, including those areas that we typically clean less often like carpets and rugs, curtains, upholstered furniture, tops of door frames, can help remove the dirt, allergens and germs floating around your home to make it healthier and safer for all who live and visit there.
