It’s that time of year again: the chill is in the air, pumpkin-spice everything is in every store, and you’re planning your big fall house cleaning. Fall is the perfect time for a deep clean. Not only does it let you sweep out the last of that summer sand and prep for the coming holiday season, but a thorough fall cleaning can also keep you healthy. But fall also tends to be one of the busiest times of the year, so let the professionals do your big fall clean, and you can relax and enjoy these health benefits.
IMPROVE RESPIRATORY HEALTH
Inside air can be just as if not more polluted than outside air. You’re constantly exposed to dust, dirt, mold spores, animal dander, and other pollutants, and it is even worse when you haven’t cleaned in a while. An intense fall clean is a great way to decrease these pollutants so that you breathe easier. Once you’ve completed your big clean, you can keep the pollutants down by thoroughly vacuuming all mattresses, rugs, curtains, and furniture. Don’t forget to vacuum or clean the tops of your fan blades as well, where dust accumulates quickly. You should also try to keep pets off the upholstered furniture and consider swapping out high-allergy elements (like down pillows and cloth curtains) for hypoallergenic options. Try to change your bedding once a week to keep air pollutants contained. Finally, make sure that your vacuum has a HEPA filter. All of this sounds super overwhelming, but when you start out with a professional deep clean this fall, it becomes easier to stay on top of it all and keep your home clean.
DECREASE SPREAD OF COLDS AND VIRUSES
An intense fall cleaning does a lot to help limit the spread of cold and flu germs. The biggest of these is getting rid of the accumulated clutter of the hectic summer months makes it easier to keep surfaces disinfected. Cold and flu germs can live on surfaces for a few hours to a few days, so you need to be able to clean them easily. Things you may have not even thought about when disinfecting your home after someone comes down with illness include telephones, doorknobs, and remote controls – this is especially important if you have kids who still try to put these things (and everything else) in their mouths.
