Spring cleaning for your health

Spring cleaning for your health


Keeping your home clean is not only good for aesthetic purposes but, it can also be very beneficial to your health. A clean home means your family is not exposed to dirt, bacteria or germs that could potentially be hazardous to your family’s health. If you are not sure how to clean your home to ensure good health, here are some tips you can follow:

  • Dusting is important

This has got to be the spring cleaning top tip to help you get a home that is not only dirt free but also, healthy. Dusting every inch of your home including key areas such as your air vents, filters and corners ensure that all germs, allergens, dust and bacteria are removed. For even more efficient healthy spring cleaning, add some disinfectant and an air filter to clear the dirt that might arise in the air as you dust.

  • Do away with all toxic products in your home

Thinners, paints, stains, oils…Those are just some of the many products in your home that could cause serious harm to your health especially if they are left open. While conducting your annual spring cleaning, take care to clear all old tins of toxic products and if you are not sure what to do with them, you can call a professional healthy spring cleaning service company to do it for you.

  • Leave certain spaces for professionals

If you are experiencing a problem with mould, a clogged chimney or anything else heavy duty, we recommend calling in a professional to get the job done. In addition to being more efficient, professionals also bring important equipment to ensure that cleaning is done safely and no one is exposed to hazardous chemicals and toxins.

  • Dispose of dirty cleaning materials appropriately

The worst thing you can do while spring cleaning your home is to reuse dirty cleaning tools. From sponges to cloths you use to wipe off dust, all used materials must be thrown away after use and if possible, use new cleaning materials for different areas of your home. Normally, we would recommend disinfecting your sponge during cleaning if you are only using one but if good health and a clean home are your goals, it’s best to buy multiple sponges for the job.
