To understand why spring cleaning is important let's look at what is happening in the world around us. As nature awakens from the winter slumber, its bursts forth with color and vitality. For this reason, spring represents new beginnings, growth, renewal and rejuvenation to many of us. So how do we connect with nature as the new season rolls in? We clean and rejuvenate our spaces. Here are some of the benefits of doing this:
Improves mental clarity and reduces stress
For those of us who are busy - wether we're busy with life, careers, being parents, care givers and even pet owners we know how easy it is to accumulate stuff. Taking time to go through these things and get rid of what we don't need or no longer want is so important! Having a decluttered and organized living space can contribute to mental clarity and reduce stress by creating a more calming and peaceful environment. Tidy surroundings that are free from clutter, can help reduce feelings of overwhelm and anxiety. Having a clean and organized space allows us to start fresh and feel more energized in this new season.
Improves indoor air quality
The clutter that can accumulate from every day life can contribute to dust, mold, and other allergens being present in our homes. If you have pets, they can produce dander and hair that can trigger allergies and asthma. When we spring clean, we remove these accumulations that have built up over the winter months and improve indoor air quality. Deep clean carpets, wash curtains, and dust hard-to-reach areas to reduce the amount of airborne particles. It's also a good time to implement routine maintenance of our HVAC systems and change air filters to further improve indoor air quality.
Identify and address any potential maintenance issues
When thoroughly cleaning all areas and items in your home, inspect items and areas for signs of wear, damage or potential issues. Let's be proactive in addressing these issues, so we can prevent more extensive and costly repairs down the road if possible!
To add an extra touch of freshness to your newly cleaned space, consider lighting some candles with light and refreshing scents. It's a simple and effective way to elevate the ambiance of your home and bring a sense of calm and relaxation into your daily life. For the season we recommend florals as they bring a light and airy feeling into the home. Here are some of our favorites:
Lavender - allow the delicate aroma of lavender to soothe you after spring cleaning. The warm glow of the candle can create a cozy and inviting atmosphere, making your freshly cleaned space even more enjoyable to be in.
Magnolia Peony - Think about peak blossoming in the spring - magnolia, peony and cherry blossom - what a treat it is to bring these aromas into your home!
Sea Flower - this upscale scent will elevate your space with upscale floral notes complimented by marine aromas. This is the perfect scent to enjoy in a freshly cleaned space!
Roll up your sleeves and get to cleaning – your mind and body will thank you for it!
