This is the time of year for “Spring Cleaning!!”

Posted on October 28, 2009. Filed under: Household Tips | Tags: |

Even though we usually think of Spring as the optimal time to do “spring cleaning”, in reality it is not the best time of year for that task. Fall is the best time of year to do a thorough cleaning if you want it to last longer.

Before the modern era of efficient heating, spring cleaning made sense.  Homes were closed up tightly in the cold winter months and smelly, dirty fuels from the fireplace, coal burning stoves, and kerosene heaters, would cover everything in the house with smoke and soot. When spring came around the house could be opened up again and walls, woodwork and rugs were given a deep cleaning.

Fortunately today we have much cleaner choices for heating our homes so they do not get nearly as dirty during the colder months. Our homes get less dirty during this time because they are closed up! So because of that we believe Fall is the best time of year for a deep cleaning; the wonderful results will last longer!
