The winter months are colder, darker, and inspire most people to huddle indoors where it’s warm and comfortable. Spending some of that time performing a deep clean of the house can benefit your health and mental well-being in numerous ways. Whether you complete it yourself or hire professional cleaners, there are specific tasks that shouldn't wait until spring.

How a Deep Clean Helps
Shutting yourself inside during winter means you’re limited to breathing the same air over and over again. The Environmental Protection Agency has found that sometimes indoor air quality can be worse than that outdoors, jeopardizing the health of a building’s inhabitants. This is because contaminants such as dust, pet dander, and allergens build up and circulate throughout the home, irritating the respiratory tract and triggering allergies. Pests are also drawn indoors when it’s cold outside and they will navigate toward food debris and clutter. Rather than hiring exterminators, invest in professional cleaning to protect your home and health.
In addition, a cluttered home has been psychologically shown to contribute to a person's stress and anxiety—as the disorganization serves as a constant reminder of an unfinished task, distracting you even in the midst of more enjoyable activities.
What Should Be Cleaned
A thorough deep clean of should reduce the pollutants in your air while deterring insects and other pests. Some excellent ways to accomplish both include removing cobwebs and trash, steaming and sweeping the carpet and floors, and sanitizing your bathroom, kitchen, and small appliances. Everything from the blades on the ceiling fan to the top of doors can collect dust and allergens, so any accessible surface should also be cleaned and sanitized. Don’t forget to vacuum behind major appliances, such as your refrigerator, too.
