Some people consider it an annual rite of passage: Clearing away the winter cobwebs to welcome the fresh cleanliness and easy breezes of spring.
Of course, there’s much more to this deep deodorizing than merely vacuuming behind the furniture. Spring cleaning is extremely time-consuming, detailed work. Wouldn’t you rather spend that time enjoying spring? In this article, we’ll explain how our services can help with your spring cleaning so you won’t have to worry.
Why Is Spring Cleaning Important? How Our Services Can Help You With Your Spring Cleaning
When your home has been tightly insulated to keep warm during the winter months, dust, dirt, and grime may have eased their way into your corners, your carpet, and other hard-to-reach areas. Spring cleaning gets rid of these and gives your home a fresh start for the season.
Did you know that spring cleaning may also make you healthier? According to the Cleveland Clinic, spring cleaning is about much more than making your home or office look good. There are several psychological benefits as well, and these include:
- A feeling of accomplishment
- Reduced stress (as a result of reducing clutter)
- Getting you moving
- Allowing you to find and remove home hazards
- Fending off depression
Spring Cleaning Is a Great Time to Disinfect
This is particularly important not only in your home but in your office, school, or even warehouse. Winter includes flu season, and sniffles and colds have undoubtedly entered your area. A thorough cleaning—with particular attention to communal areas—can give you a healthier start.
It’s important to note: There’s a difference between cleaning and disinfecting, and that’s one key to how our services can help with your spring cleaning.
What’s the Difference Between Cleaning and Disinfecting?
You’ll hear people use these words interchangeably, but there are key differences.
Disinfecting became the buzzword during the height of COVID when federal and state regulations required a certain level of quality to determine if an area was safely disinfected or not.
While we’ve used the term “spring cleaning” in this article, what we offer at First Call is much more than using a household bleach-containing product and mopping the floors.
We don’t merely clean. We disinfect. Disinfecting is a stronger alternative to actually removing and destroying germs.
All of our disinfection services follow the standards set by the Centers for Disease Control, EPA, and OSHA to help ensure your home, office or school is safe. If an area has been disinfected, then it must meet these stringent requirements, while mere cleaning does not. We also use a hospital-grade disinfectant.
