Why Spring Cleaning Is Important For Health

Your house just doesn’t feel as good towards the end of the winter as it did at the beginning of the fall. You’ve been shut up inside for the better part of up to 5 months, the air in the house is stale, the carpets are hit and you’re just ready for some new life from the new change of seasons.

One company in Columbus, Ohio has dedicated their services and have built their company around educating the public about the importance of cleaning for health. They even offer a FREE guide on “How To Allergy Proof Your Home” to area residents that request one.

Why do most people clean in the spring?

Spring is the time of year when most people go into somewhat of a “frenzy” to do some serious house cleaning or outdoor cleaning of the garage or the yard, etc. The reason why is, they’ve been shut up in the house for most of the winter and warmer weather is a key motivator that they need to get up and do something.

What do most people expect from spring cleaning?

Most people clean in the spring because it’s a tradition or habit they’ve developed because when their house has that clean feeling, it makes them feel better about themselves and their belongings. They get an opportunity to open up the windows and let some fresh air in, something they may not have been able to do since the late fall season. Especially those who live in cold weather climates.

Who should really do spring cleaning?

Everyone! But especially those who suffer from allergies, asthma and other breathing disorders. All winter long the house has been shut and one’s carpet becomes a breeding ground for airborne bacteria, mold spores, dust mite feces, pet dander, cat saliva, pollen, pollutants from ice melt chemicals, mud, dirt, sand and grit that we and our pets bring in from the outside. All of these things get lodged in our carpets, furnishings, bedding and draperies and they need to be cleaned. By reducing these allergens, dust particles and pollutants, we make our homes far healthier than if we didn’t clean it.

When and how often should you clean?

You should be proactive and clean before the appearance of your belongings tell you they should be cleaned. If it already looks bad, you’ve probably waited too long. Environmental Protection Agency studies tells us that our carpets should be cleaned every 6 to 12 months, especially if you have young children, elderly parents or if anyone suffers from various breathing disorders.

How should your carpets be cleaned?

Shaw Industries, the world’s largest carpet manufacturer, recommends hot water extraction as their preferred method for cleaning the carpet that they produce. Hot water extraction from a truck-mounted unit can produce heat from 190 to 245 degrees, killing and flushing out any germs and bacteria that may be growing in your carpet. And with a professional truck-mounted system, the powerful vacuum is able to suck up many of the other sediments that may be lodged in your carpet.
