According to Psychology Today, Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) affects more than 10 million Americans each year. If you are one of them, an easy way to boost your mood during the winter months is by having a thorough house cleaning performed. Here are four ways in which our house cleaning services can improve your outlook this winter.
Lightens things Up
Even a little bit of dirt on your walls and baseboards can make them appear dull. In addition, dirty windows or dust on your light fixtures could cause your house to appear dimmer. Cleaning these areas is one way to lighten up your home and your mood.
Winter weather can already put you in a slump, and having a cluttered, messy home can only magnify that feeling. If you’re having trouble getting things accomplished, a clean home could be just what you need in order to become energized again.
Clean homes are also healthier. When dust, pet dander, and other allergens are lurking in the corners of your home, you might experience allergy or asthma symptoms more often. Germs could also be lurking on your hard surfaces, making it more likely that you will come down with a cold or the flu.
During winter, you cannot always open your windows to let fresh air in. As a result, your home may have a stale odor. In addition, homes with wood-burning appliances can develop a smoky smell, particularly if you also burn candles or oil lamps. You’ll be surprised at how fresh and clean your house will smell after our crew finishes its work. We’re sure your mood will be brightened as well.
These are just a few reasons why you should not wait until spring to have us perform house cleaning for you. If you are suffering from the winter blues, don’t wait-contact us today to set up an appointment.
