When is really the best time to do deep house cleaning? The universal view is that spring cleaning is called spring cleaning for a reason and no other season can substitute it – it has the right temperatures for it, it has the right seasonal offers, and so on. Can you deep clean your home in winter instead of organising a spring clean?
Actually, you can. In fact, there are many reasons why you should do it in the winter rather than the spring. And here is why you should make deep cleaning part of your list of winter chores.
It’s Cold Outside!
First and foremost, you might have noticed that it’s a bit chilly during the winter season. People would rather spend time inside their warm homes than doing chores outside. And if you are going to spend so much time inside, it would be best to spend it in a clean environment. Here you get the motivation to deep clean your house in winter. You want the cleanest home to spend the Christmas holidays in.
The cold is also a motivator to do the actual cleaning. Even if you have the best fireplace, it’s only warm in front of it, and the house is supposedly a much bigger place. Doing cleaning provides movement, which generates heat, meaning, in layman’s terms, the more you move, the warmer you will be. The deep cleaning itself will be a physical exercise to keep you constantly warm, and eventually make that cup of tea at the end of the day that much more rewarding.
Little Messes To Handle
The biggest problem you will face in winter is just how wet everything is. The snow melts and you bring it in and then everything becomes wet – that’s the cycle of winter, and your only problem, really. All you need to do is get supplies that deal with moist. A huge problem in winter can be the mould, since everything is indeed so moist. So equip yourself with anti-mould products and use them properly to protect your home.
Mud is another annoying problem to deal with in winter, especially if you have pets or kids. Some people render deep cleaning pointless precisely because of that reason. But then again, it should be done precisely because you don’t want mud being in the way all the time. Dry steam cleaning is the way to go if you want to get rid of mud the easy way.
Celebrating Christmas in a cosy and clean house
And here is the best reason to do some good old deep home cleaning – to spend the holidays in a warm and clean home. Spend Christmas or Hanukkah in the best environment you can create this season - the best environment for your family. Celebrate the holidays in style, in grace, and – most of all – in a clean and healthy environment.
Is winter the best time to deep clean your house? Sure, why shouldn’t it be? Think about any number of reasons why it should be and every ‘yes’ will make the process of home cleaning much more rewarding. And if you feel too lazy – hey, there will always be cleaning agencies to take care of this job for you.
