My disclosure: Hi, I’m Michael and I’ve been in the cleaning business for 26 years. I teach professionals how to clean. Here are my tips.
Many clients still cling to the “Spring Cleaning” concept, but when we examine the purpose of house cleaning, it gives pause for thought.
Our homes used to be heated by wood and/or coal, both very dirty fuels. So when weather permitted (SPRING), house cleaning became a major issue; and with the dirty fuels, everything on the inside of the house needed a good scrubbing and airing out.
But, with modern clean heat systems, we no longer need SPRING cleaning. We need FALL cleaning, and here’s why.
As soon as nice weather permits, windows fly open, doors fly open and the outdoors comes inside as pollen, dust, and mold spores. So Fall is now the proper time to CLEAN the house for Winter, when doors and windows will remain shut.
Hope this helps!
