Hooray, spring is just around the corner! After being cooped up indoors for so long, whether it was due to the harsh winter weather or COVID restrictions, many Torontonians are looking forward to shaking off the winter blues and getting some much-needed fresh air outdoors.
With sunnier days and warmer weather coming, many residents will also be busy with their spring cleaning Toronto rituals. The City has even announced the Clean Toronto Together event for April so everyone can take part in the annual spring cleanup and keep local parks and public spaces beautiful and safe.
But it’s not only Torontonians who are going to be busy as bees this springtime. In other parts of the world, many families and homeowners will also be taking part in the yearly ritual of spring cleaning.
For most Torontonians and for those who also live in places with temperate climates, spring is the perfect time to tackle clutter, big cleaning projects, and repairs that you had to put off during winter. Now that the days are longer and the weather is more tolerable, you can get a lot more done.
In some cultures, spring cleaning involves the physical thorough cleaning of homes and certain rituals for spiritual cleansing, and it doesn’t necessarily take place in springtime.
Springtime is usually associated with nature coming back to life and new beginnings. Some consider this new season as a chance to do some redecorating or renovations to give their home a new look. Others take it as an opportunity to purge and reassess the purpose of their personal possessions. This process allows them to also dig deeper into their priorities and values in life.
Another reason is that deep cleaning your home creates a safer and healthier living environment. Getting rid of all that dust, dander, molds, and other allergens which have accumulated over winter improves your indoor air quality. Sweeping and vacuuming every inch of your floor means fewer chances of crumbs and other trash that attract cockroaches, ants, mice, and other pests. It is your chance to do repair and maintenance work to make sure your house’s structure can withstand the changing seasons.
How will Torontonians deal with their spring cleaning?
Even if Toronto’s spring weather can be quite unpredictable with unexpected snowstorms or thunderstorms, locals are still eager to spend more time hanging out and dining outdoors.
With the current pandemic, more Torontonians have been working from home. Not everyone has a home office, so many have had to make do with turning bedrooms, living rooms, and kitchens into makeshift workstations. And since COVID is still unpredictable, the work-from-home setup is still likely to continue.
Cleaning, sanitizing, and disinfecting – what’s the difference? And do you really need a different product for each task?
Thanks to COVID, most homeowners in Toronto have a better appreciation for the importance of killing bacteria and germs lurking around the home. However, juggling work and home life are becoming more challenging with the current on-and-off quarantines.
Consumers want a product that can make it simpler and faster to clean, sanitize, and disinfect. After all, the average hardworking Torontonian can’t afford to spend all their time cleaning.
Furthermore, growing concerns over global inflation and toxic substances in the environment mean more homeowners want budget-friendly and green options when tackling such a big cleanup project.
Knowing that you can save time, money, your health, and the environment can make the spring cleaning experience less stressful and more appealing.
