deep cleaning after summer

Deep Cleaning after Summer

Most people choose to do deep cleaning right after winter and that’s why they call it spring cleaning. However, in reality, every home needs a thorough clean, at least twice a year. And that’s the bare minimum. So, if the best time to do spring cleaning is after the winter months, the second best time for deep cleaning is after summer. 

 

Areas for Deep Cleaning

 

The Bathroom

It’s a great idea to start your deep cleaning from the bathroom. During the summer, you probably used it more often than the rest of the year and it now needs a refreshing touch. There might be some limescale built-up or yellow stains on some of the tiles and shower cabin floor. That usually takes more effort than a regular scrub. If you are a fan of eco-friendly cleaning products, you can use apple cider vinegar to deal with the limescale and stains. Also, don’t forget to disinfect the toilet! Autumn is the season of viruses and bacteria. You want to germ-proof your home as much as possible. 

 

The Kitchen

Deep cleaning your kitchen is a good opportunity to take care of your appliances inside and out, as well as behind and under. Clear the fridge and give it a good scrub. You can make a homemade cleaning solution to remove grease and burnt-on from the oven. Don’t miss the inside of the cupboards and throw away everything that has to go. 

While you are in the kitchen, take the time to organise the pantry. Nothing feels cosier than a nice and tidy pantry, full of herbs, tea and warming drinks in the coming autumn. 

 

The Bedrooms

Your bedrooms will also need significant deep cleaning. Wash the duvets, pillows and quilts. If you can, arrange carpet cleaning, just to ensure your sleeping environment is safe, clean and peaceful. Steam cleaning has even more health benefits and will help you have a better night sleep. 

Your closet is a must-clean. Time to put away the fun, colourful summer clothes and bring out the cosy, warm winter garments. 

 

The Living Room

Last but not least, spend some time deep cleaning your living room too. It’s probably the place where you would be spending most of your time at home. Make it look inviting and calm. Clean behind the furniture to remove dust and any other dirt. Also, to ensure your home doesn’t get infested with spiders. Early autumn is their mating period, so one of their favourite hiding places is behind your sofa! 

Since cold months are coming, you will be using a lot more heating. Deep clean the radiators to maximise their efficiency.

Spring Cleaning Benefits

Do You Really Need Spring Cleaning?

It is safe to say that spring has finally come and with that many households are thinking of spring cleaning. Furthermore, it is actually a well-established tradition in many places around the world. Many cultures believe that there is a strong connection between the decluttering and cleansing of your physical space and your spiritual and mental wellbeing. But let’s look at it objectively, is spring cleaning something you really need or an act that some people simply like doing? As professionals, we can argue that spring cleaning is highly recommended for a number of reasons and we’ll share them with you. 

 

Spring Cleaning Keeps You Healthy

 

The first and probably most important benefit of spring cleaning is related to the physical health. During the winter period, there are many bacteria and germs we bring into our homes. Even if you clean your home regularly, some of these embed themselves in the carpets, furniture and little cracks and corners in your home. It takes a thorough deep cleaning to make sure you are completely rid of them. Furthermore, sometimes bread crumbles and small food leftovers get under the sofa without us noticing. Especially, if you have young children at home. With time those pieces get mouldy and can even attract pests if not removed. Spring cleaning can ensure that your home is germs and dirt-free.

 

Spring Cleaning Keeps You In Shape

 

Continuing on the physical health benefits, getting to do spring cleaning at home actually counts as a pretty good workout. There’s lots of squatting, arms and abs exercise, moving around and even some heavy lifting involved. Of course, you don’t have to do it yourself. You can always call a friend to help you out and make it more fun. Play your favourite music while cleaning and you won’t even feel like you are doing a chore.  

 

Spring Cleaning Keeps You Stress-Free

 

Science has proven that decluttering your living and working environment helps with boosting the levels of concentration, productivity and creativity. Moreover, spring cleaning is also associated with lifting depression and putting you into good mood. In other words, having your space deep cleaned could have a positive impact on you both mentally and emotionally. But not everyone likes cleaning. In fact, for some people it counts as torture. The interesting thing about scientists findings exploring the bond between spring cleaning and mental wellbeing is the fact that even people who have outsourced the task report lower stress levels after it has been completed.  Well, it isn’t that surprising. After all, looking at a tidy and clean place generally brings a feeling of comfort and reassurance that everything will be ok.

 

Spring Cleaning is a Symbol of New Beginnings

 

Spring cleaning includes a thorough clean of every big and small part of your home. It is the perfect opportunity to dispose of all the things that you no longer need. Not only it will free space in your physical environment, but will also increase your capacity to receive new energy on a spiritual and mental level. Decluttering your home is very refreshing and optimises your mind to think of new ideas and activities. It enables you to plan for the future and consider new beginnings and exciting experiences.
