3 Reasons to Schedule An Annual Spring Cleaning

Spring is Almost Here! 

        The spring equinox or the first day of our spring season in the Northern Hemisphere is quickly approaching.  On March the 20th, daylight hours and darkness hours will pretty close to equal, and this will herald the winds of change for the season.  North Carolina is already feeling the warmth returning with the blossoming of our most beloved dogwoods.  We are all ready for the season to change. However, our minds and souls are still feeling the chills of winter.  Spring symbolizes new starts and rebirth.  For many of us, that starts in our homes with an annual spring cleaning.

         Spring cleaning has many different cultural roots that occurred before modern cleaning services took shape.  In the 1800s, the burning of oil, kerosene lamps, wood stoves, and coal left homes filled with soot.  That soot could only be purged by opening up the windows. 

         If you are new to North Carolina, our milder winters do not take away from the natural beauty of our state during the spring.  Though the pollen season can be brutal, the blooming of the azaleas, plum trees, and dogwoods are the envy of our northern neighbors.  If you are a native of the Tar Heel State, you know that this silent, majestic beauty is paired with the sound of the songbirds and the beginning of the butterfly season.

Enjoying the Warmth: 

         With all of these happy occurrences in the future, it is hard to wrap one's mind around the eventuality of a spring cleaning session.  However, with these extra hours of daylight and warmer temperatures create a few realities our local area.  The warmer temperatures allow our native insects to come back to life.  The change in seasons also creates seasonal allergies and a rebirth of the cold season.  A deep spring cleaning will help alleviate these less than desirable occurrences.

Spring Cleaning: DIY or Hire a Cleaning Service:                       

          No one that we know does not enjoy the feel of a clean home, and a spring cleaning removes a great deal of the remnants of the last six months of the indoor season.  However, a lot of our professional clients, busy parents and those that are fond of entertaining have found that the secret to executing the 100+ item checklist of a typical spring clean is to have someone else do it.  There are many reasons to have a professional cleaning service complete your annual household spring cleaning.

3 Reasons to Hire a Cleaning Service For Your Annual Spring Cleaning: 

1)      You Have No Time: 

          Are you a parent or a professional?  We all get that feeling of dread on Friday afternoon thinking about cleaning through the whole weekend.  If you are a parent, finding a good housekeeper to do an in-depth annual clean of your house just makes sense.  Your children have hiding places for their favorite treats they are not supposed to have.  Sure, you know where the regular spots are, but they fire ants are going to find the places you may have overlooked.  Additionally, it is likely that your standards of cleanliness may have degraded over time.  Having a fresh set of eyes motivated to ensure a quality level of cleanliness is just the thing your home needs provide a top quality level of clean without destroying your weekend.

2)      You Want To Enjoy Your Next Event: 

         Planning an event for your friends and loved ones is a great way to share your home with the people that make your life special.  However, cleaning up your house before and after a spring event takes a great deal of the fun away.  No one wants to make their guests feel like he or she have to be a part of the preparation or clean up crew after an event, even if he or she is well-intentioned. 

3)      You Are Not An Expert Cleaner: 

         Sure, we all clean.  Your partner or husband has a version of clean.  You have a version of clean.  A paid professional cleans spaces for a living.  The right cleaning professional will ensure that your annual spring clean gets everything, in all of the cracks and crevices that your weekly and daily routines miss.  An annual spring cleaning is a great way to evaluate a professional cleaning service without committing to a weekly, bi-weekly or monthly agreement.  We all know that the quality of service between residential and commercial cleaners varies significantly at an individual and company level.  Finding the right expert will save you time and stress.

In The End:

         An annual spring cleaning has a checklist of over 60 items, to includes wiping down light bulbs, sterilizing doorknobs, cleaning the inside of the trash cans, deep cleaning toilets, and countless other unpleasant tasks that are equally undesirable.  An annual spring cleaning completed by a professional is the catalyst of a new beginning in your home.  It can reduce the number of colds your family has throughout the spring and ensure that your next entertaining event will be less stressful and more enjoyable for everyone involved.
