Winter is brutal, especially winters here in Michigan. When the dreary winter finally ends, the beautiful season of spring arrives, and with that means different things to different people. Rebirth, more energy, and more motivation are some things that may come to mind. To many Americans and myself, however, the first thing that comes to mind is cleaning.


Spring is the glorious season of the year when about 60 percent of Americans undergo some sort of makeover or spring cleaning, according to SWNS Digital. Anything from a simple manicure or pedicure to scrubbing the entire house occurs among that 60 percent of spring cleaners.


The warmer weather that spring brings is a definite motivator to crack open some windows and the cleaning supplies after being cooped up for a long winter. All throughout the winter, houses are shut and sealed up to protect from the cold, but they also become a home to bacteria. Carpet especially contains mold spores, dust mites, pollen, and many other types of bacteria after the bitter winter season.


It is crucial to reduce allergens and bacteria in order to promote a clean, healthy lifestyle, which is why spring cleaning is so important. It may seem like only parents are responsible for cleaning out the house, or at least parts of it each spring, but something even as simple as running a disinfectant wipe over that dusty desk in your room can improve health and cleanliness in your environment.


Spring cleaning is not only good for physical health, but mental health as well. Having a fresh, clean home and belongings makes one feel better about themselves and exert more confidence. It gives people a sense of pride and accomplishment and the warmer weather is there to top it all off.


Although cleaning is not the most fun to do during free time, listening to music and taking frequent breaks can make it more bearable. Dusting and vacuuming the house as a family also promotes family bonding and togetherness, a positive added bonus of clearing the dust and dirt from the house.


Spring cleaning is a tradition for some, and a habit for others, myself included. It is a very beneficial activity for a person's overall health and wellness, even if not much cleaning actually is done. (Photo Credit: Caitlin Jefferson)
