Every homeowner understands the importance of a deep clean, but too many of them put it off for so long that, when the time comes, it can feel like an impossible task. With Easter coming up, you might feel like there isn’t enough time to get everything spic and span, but rather the opposite.
Easter is the perfect time for a deep spring clean, but if you aren’t convinced, here are six reasons to inspire you to unleash your vacuum, find your duster, and pull on your rubber gloves to ensure your home is perfect.
Easter Is the Time Of Rebirth
Considering the historical precedent surrounding Easter and spring cleaning, it only makes sense that you take some time to clear out your home and give it new life. Everyone already knows the story of Easter, and applying these principles to your house care gives you something to relay to your kids. This also teaches them vital life skills such as vacuuming, dusting, and keeping the house neat. While they may still have a few years before they move out, it will put them in the right mind frame once they leave so they’ll have no trouble keeping their home clean.
You Might Have Guests Coming Over
For many people, the thought of the home being a mess when guests are coming over is too much to bear. It can even manifest in ways that make the home look like it’s never been lived in and if this sounds familiar, you’ll have another great reason to go on a spring cleaning mission. Whether you’ve invited friends or family, a neat and clean house will make you feel better and less anxious as you await that first knock at the door.
It Helps You Find Good Egg Hiding Spots
It isn’t just about history or making sure the house is spotless. If you want to add some fun to the Easter festivities, a spring clean could help uncover possible hiding spots. This is especially useful if your kids know all the good places to stow chocolate eggs during the annual hunt. By giving your home a spring clean and even rearranging the layout, you can catch them out and finally give them a new challenge after all these years.
Your Kids Might Make A Mess Anyway
On the other hand, your kids might be too young for an Easter egg hunt, but that doesn’t mean they can’t still have other types of fun. If you’re planning an Easter Egg painting activity or craft day, complete with the story behind Easter eggs and why we decorate them, there’s a chance your kids might make a mess anyway. If you leave your spring cleaning until the day after, then you won’t need to spend too many days cleaning over your break.
You Might Be Going On Vacation
One of the most interesting things you learn once you own a home is that it’s always better to return to a clean home after your vacation. If you have a few days before you depart, you may as well do as much as possible to ensure a clean so it’s tidy and sparkling once you come home. No one wants to come home to a pile of dirty laundry or dishes piled in the sink, so even a quick clean during the morning before you head off for a week will ease your mind and help you relax because that’s what you deserve.
You Have Plenty Of Time
Some people are blessed with the chance to take enough time off during the year, and if your kids are off from school, you may need to take a vacation to supervise them. They might be old enough to look after themselves, though, which gives you the chance to do a little spring cleaning here and there. This way, you don’t need to rush through the entire season’s cleaning in a single day. Instead, you can focus on one room at a time so you don’t feel too overwhelmed.
A spring clean will make your home feel more like, well, home. You’ve got to clear out most (if not all) of the clutter at some point, so taking the time to go through all your stuff and refreshing your house will be worth it. If you feel the task is too much for one person, get the rest of the family involved and if they resist, remind them who knows where the Easter Eggs are hidden.
