Can Spring Cleaning Kill Me?


"Spring cleaning doesn't have to be a dreaded list of chores. It can be a rewarding experience that helps provide some structure and organization in your life."    

Peter Walsh - Professional Organizer


The Internet has no shortage of material regarding the origins of deep cleaning aka spring cleaning. As a matter of fact, in most parts of the world, this ritual is practiced in one form or another. Oftentimes, it will coincide with the New Year or the eve of an important holiday.


For sure, there are benefits to this maniacal cleaning. The most obvious is a spotless home, but did you know that it's also good for your soul? 


Are you feeling stressed, overworked, overwhelmed or disconnected? The antidote:  open the windows, turn on the music and clean! 


Clean, clean and when you feel like you're about to drop, then clean some more.


We're talking heavy-duty here. Don't just clean inside the refrigerator but behind it. Don't just do the top of the desk, crawl underneath it. And remember to dust those slats in your doors and blinds!


Take comfort in the fact that you're probably doing it right if you're starting to feel like paramedics may soon have to be called in. Will spring cleaning kill you? I seriously doubt it but you can always check with your medical professional before you begin.


In the end, you'll be left with a clear mind - focused -  with problems and priorities that are well-defined. Solutions will present themselves.


Because while you're busy organizing and cleansing the outside, the impact will also be felt inside.


After all is "said and done," take a step back, admire your handiwork, bask in the warmth that's permeating your streak-free windows and call me.


I'll successfully sell your home because

PRESENTATION as well as PRICE and Location matters!
