3 Reasons Why Spring Cleaning Is a Good Investment in Your Home

If you’re like many homeowners, the thought of spring cleaning isn’t exactly your idea of a fun way to spend your weekends while the weather’s so glorious outside. Yet a thorough top-to-bottom, room-to-room house cleaning is a great investment in your home for lots of reasons. 

If you’re in search of a little motivation to pick up the sponge, bucket, and all-purpose cleaner, read on to learn three reasons why spring cleaning is one of the best investments you can make in your home. 

It Improves the Health of Your Home and Its Occupants

A thorough home cleaning is the best way to clear out the cobwebs after being cooped up all winter long. But it’s also a great way to make your home a healthier place to live for you and your family. 

Spring cleaning removes dust, contaminants, and allergens that can cause or aggravate respiratory issues. It also means decluttering, which removes potential tripping hazards and household accidents waiting to happen. Clearing your bathroom’s medicine cabinet of expired medications and over-the-counter substances helps prevent accidental poisonings. And having your chimney professionally cleaned and your heater serviced will help reduce the risk of carbon monoxide leaks. 

If you’re concerned about toxic cleaners and other household items in your home, include the removal of paint thinners, paints, and other potentially hazardous substances on your to-do list. Then select one or more environmentally safe cleaners to use in your spring cleaning. You can also use natural substances such as baking soda, white vinegar, and lemon juice to tackle a number of cleaning tasks in your home. 

A Clean Home Reduces Your Stress

A clean home helps reduce or even eliminate stress. Just think how you feel in a cluttered house that’s in sore need of dusting and vacuuming. A home in need of cleaning, sorting, and organizing can spike your frustration and drain your energy. 

Working and living in a cleaner, more organized environment helps you feel more at ease. And if you work from home, you’ll be more productive. Just imagine not having to search for what you need, because you know exactly where it is and that it’s ready to do the job you need it to do. Even the process of cleaning helps increase your energy levels!

It Can Boost Your Home’s Appraisal

A solid appraisal and higher appraisal value is good for homeowners, especially if you’re planning to sell your home at any point in the coming six to twelve months. The principle reason behind this is that while buyers can make any offer they like on your home, they won’t be able to secure a mortgage for a sales price that exceeds the appraised value. They can still buy the house, of course, but they’ll have to make up the difference in cash, most likely. 

As a result, a higher appraised value boosts your chances of getting a healthy offer to a successful closing more quickly. If your home’s appraisal supports the offer amount, the buyer will have an easier time securing the necessary financing. 

Appearances matter to perceived and actual value, whether you’re a potential home purchaser or an appraiser. While experienced appraisers are trained to look beyond mere cosmetic elements to see the more permanent features underneath, a thorough spring cleaning will inevitably spruce up your home’s appearance and help improve the overall impression of its worth. And if you set an asking price that’s based on a higher valuation, many shoppers will perceive your home to be worth more as a result.
