Get Ready for Spring Cleaning with the Power of Method

. 6 min read

Springtime is finally here! The weather is warming up, flowers are blooming, and the air smells fresh. It's a great time to get your home looking spotless during this year's spring clean. We'll go through what spring cleaning is, why you should do it and we'll even take you through our favourite Method cleaning products, so you can get a lovely clean house even faster than you might expect.

What Is a Spring Clean?

As the name suggests, you're simply deep cleaning your home during the springtime. But why spring of all seasons? Well, it's a popular season of cleaning in many cultures, take the Iranians for example. They celebrate Nowruz, the Persian New Year which falls on the first day of Spring. Just before Nowruz, Iranian's practice something called khaneh tekani. This translates to 'shaking the house', which essentially means they're giving their entire house a thorough clean - just like we do during our spring-cleaning season.

For us in the UK, spring means warmer weather and longer days, so you can crack open those windows and let fresh air flood in.

Why Every Home Needs Spring Clean

Believe it or not, but with a cleaner home you’ll feel like a weight has been lifted off your shoulders because cleaning your home can be quite the task, and once it’s ticked off your list it provides a sense of relief. One of the main benefits of spring cleaning is better quality air inside your home. A deep clean removes allergen triggers such as dust and mould which makes life at home easier for asthma and hay fever suffers. Plus, a cleaner home is just that bit nicer to live in.

Organise your home and declutter your room during a spring clean, especially your working spaces. Less clutter means your productivity levels will skyrocket because your working environment will feel like it's been refreshed, and the things you need will be easier to find with improved organisation.

Now you may not believe this benefit and you might think we're trying to convince you to get your cleaning gloves on, but spring cleaning can actually make you happier. Yep, you read that right. It's because the act of cleaning provides a sense of achievement and satisfaction, and previous studies have shown that household cleaning increases your overall level of happiness. So, we guess Mum was right all along - make sure your home always looks spick and span.

Spring cleaning can be quite a lengthy task, but it doesn't need to be as long as you've got the right products to hand.
