spring & summer cleaning
During the spring and summer months households often need more cleaning. This is because warmer weather invites open windows and doors, and more outdoor activity. With the increased traffic between the outdoors and the home, a greater build up of debris from outside occurs. Spring and summer months also bring a change in the air because of pollen. For individuals with allergies, frequent home cleaning is necessary to mitigate the effect of allergens from the outdoors building up inside.
Spring and summer cleaning is also especially useful for household with school aged children. With the children in and out of the house throughout the day instead of being at school, an increased amount of dirt and grim build up is unavoidable.
