As we wave goodbye to winter and hello to spring, there’s no better time to have a clear-out and get your home feeling fresh and organised.

In this article, we discuss the benefits that having a spring clean can bring to your life.

Benefits of a spring clean

Reduce stress

Decluttering has been scientifically proven to reduce our stress levels. This is because the stress hormone, cortisol, increases around visual clutter. It’s widely accepted that removing clutter from our homes can improve our focus and boost our self-esteem in the process. Once you’ve successfully completed this step, you’ll find it much easier to begin your spring cleaning. Plus, you’ll have much more space to enjoy within your home.

Clear out your winter wardrobe

Now that winter is on its way out, it’s time to swap to your spring wardrobe. You can pack away those chunky knits, scarves, and coats to make room for lighter items such as jackets, shirts, and blouses instead. A tidy closet leaves us feeling more organised, making it easier to decide what to wear on a busy morning.


Home repairs

Another element to spring cleaning: is the repair work within our homes that we may have been deliberately neglecting for some time now. Spring is a symbolic time for new beginnings – so what better time than the present to make your home feel new again? Make a list of everything that needs your attention and carve out some time one weekend to do some DIY.

Be mindful that home maintenance and improvements, while necessary, can be costly. Instead of struggling with a payday loan, be sure to consider alternative financial options if you need to, such as a line of credit.

Sell unwanted items

After decluttering, you’ll no doubt be left with a pile of items you no longer need. Rather than simply discarding them or giving them away, why not sell them online instead? Online sales are a great way to make extra cash whilst simultaneously ridding your home of clutter.

If you’re not sure where to begin, sites such as Vinted and eBay are easy platforms to use.

Improve your immune system

A spring clean is much more than our usual tidying. Having a deep clean, getting behind every piece of furniture, can have excellent health benefits. You may be ridding your home of hidden allergens and germs that have been trapped behind items that don’t often move. If you’re someone who struggles with allergies, a spring clean can rid your home of dust, pet dander, and pollen – all of which are big triggers for our immune systems.
