What is Spring Cleaning?
In traditional terms, spring cleaning is an yearly cleaning ritual where homeowners do a deep, thorough, home cleaning to usher in the start of spring. A thorough cleanup includes areas you do not usually include in your weekly cleaning or day to day maintenance, such as cleaning beneath carpets and furnishing, on top of bookshelves, etc. To spring clean means to clean up dirt from your ceiling all the way to your floor.
In the Singapore context, a spring-cleaning marathon is carried out in preparation for the festive season when families usher in the festive season with a clean slate.
A well-thought-out spring-cleaning is no walk in the park; it requires dedication for every section to be sparkling clean and welcoming. Spring-cleaning can be very time-consuming and hectic; hence, many people choose to hire a professional cleaning service to take care of it.
When Should You Start Spring Cleaning?
Different cultures have different traditions for thorough domestic cleaning. The spring clean up can start anywhere from 1st of March and continue all the way until the end of April.
However in Singapore, Chinese New Year (CNY) is mainly about the opportunity to start your life anew and most of us will start spring cleaning to prepare for the Lunar New Year. As spring cleaning requires special attention, it can take a couple of days to complete every corner of the house. The year’s spring cleaning officially starts on the 23th day of the 12th lunar month. There is approximately one week that you can dedicate to deep cleaning your house.
If you don’t want to end up with dirt on the first Chinese New Year’s day, you have to work hard. You should put value on each day of the preparation period to help each corner of your house spotlessly clean. CNY spring cleaning is a major whole-house task that requires a lot of effort and dedication. If your house is big, you especially have to rush to manage to sweep away all bad luck.
You may be wondering if you could spring clean during a non-CNY period? Of course! Regular household cleaning is a must for many. A lot of people tend to treat spring cleaning as part of their weekly or monthly chores. Spring cleaning is usually planned on your own before the festive season or springtime, but sometimes, the mundane and tiring chores can get in the way with your busy schedule. For busy professionals, balancing obligations of working hectic schedules and family on top of your household’s monthly chores can be difficult.
