Even though we hear a lot about Spring Cleaning this time of year, it’s not actually as prevalent as you think. A recent survey showed that about 66% of adults in the U.S. plan to undertake the annual ritual of scrubbing and soaping.
That means 1 out of every 3 adults has already abandoned Spring Cleaning. In addition, the same survey reported that a full 54% of those who plan on doing Spring Cleaning are having trouble getting motivated and 40% are worried about finding the time to complete the job.
Despite the trials and tribulations, there are parts of Spring Cleaning that are very important and it is for more than just your countertops, bathrooms and floors, like indoor air quality.
Good Air Quality Means You Can Breathe Deeply
Sure, you don’t exactly think of your indoor air and your HVAC system when you put together your Spring Cleaning list.
Normally, it looks like dusting, sweeping, vacuuming, scrubbing and so many more items. However, even though you don’t see the effects, the concept of checking your indoor air quality can have a huge impact on your well being.
It may not look as sparkly and shiny as a freshly cleaned countertop but you can get plenty of benefits from cleaning up your indoor air.
Does Poor Indoor Air Quality Really Affect You?
You may be wondering if we are blowing the importance of indoor air quality out of proportion. Certainly, the impacts on most people aren’t staggering.
Often, many are simply attributing their symptoms to the impact of the change in weather and season. These feelings could be like a minor allergic reaction or a lingering cold or cough.
However, these often aren’t due to the change of season but to the increased presence of allergens like dust and pollen in your indoor air.
