Why is Spring Cleaning Important?

April 19, 2023

Haven’t done your Spring cleaning yet? Join the club! It’s unfortunate that our winter mess is still lingering, but it’s not too late to get Spring-ready. Read more below about why Spring cleaning is more important than you may realize- and not just for your home!

Your immune system needs some TLC

The long season of low temperatures and lack of sunshine has finally ended, and it is essential to reflect on its impact. Your body’s immune system dealt with:

  • A decrease in natural vitamin D
  • Cold and dry air
  • A nasty cold/flu season

Winter is also notorious for causing low energy. This can lead to you getting more use out of the comfort and warmth of your home and vehicle but caring for them even less. Over time, this creates a buildup of dust, germs, and grime inside of your two most prime environments.

It is time to give your immune system a break and refresh your environment! This can help prevent the risk of getting sick, developing respiratory problems, and/or falling victim to the upcoming strike of seasonal allergies.

Low on time? Here are a few tips from us:

  • Start small: choose one part of your home to deep clean at a time.
  • Create a checklist for each area.
  • Save yourself some time and schedule an appointment to receive a professional cleaning for your vehicle.
    • Ziebart offers a thorough detailing process that cleans, disinfects, and restores your vehicle’s surfaces to help stop the spread of any lingering germs and illnesses.


Protect your Safety and Mental Health

Have you ever tried to work at your home desk, but your focus was being haunted by the mess of papers surrounding you? Or perhaps, you've quickly pressed the brakes of your vehicle, only to feel an old water bottle roll forward from under your seat? That’s a huge safety hazard!

Cluttered spaces can cause:

  • Stress
  • Lack of focus
  • Even safety hazards!

Scenarios that may seem minor can have compounding effects, taking a toll on your mental health over time. Plus, clutter can affect everyone. Have you ever tripped over something that wasn’t yours? Or gotten inside of a car that has a ton of clutter on the floor? That’s right- your passengers’ mood and comfort is impacted too! Declutter your home and vehicle to unlock a happier, healthier, and safer version of yourself, your peers, and your family.

Then, maintain it!

A great way to prevent clutter from building in the first place is to make small updates to your spaces regularly to best optimize your space and keep you excited about using them. Ziebart has plenty of accessories for your vehicle to help - from a wide range of toolbox styles perfect for your truck, to custom floor mats that enhance appearance and protect the interior.


Maintain the Exterior- Prevent Damage!

The outside of your home and vehicle needs a Spring cleaning as well. As far as your home, it’s important to ensure that your gutters are clean so that they can properly serve their purpose to protect from water damage. It’s also a good time to get the outside of your windows cleaned and your backyard furniture prepped for the Spring and Summer seasons.

Regarding your vehicle, time is especially of the essence. Many areas of your vehicle get direct exposure to winter contaminants. Leaving those remnants on the outside of your vehicle can damage the exterior over time.

Some exterior areas of your car that could use a good cleaning include:

  • All painted areas
  • Wheels and tires
  • Trim
  • All glass areas
While this may sound like a lot, it could just be a one-step process for you: allow Ziebart to take this burden off your hands and give you the refresh your vehicle needs this Spring! Through state-of-the-art equipment, certified professionals, and unique proprietary products, Ziebart can ensure your vehicle is clear of all winter leftovers.
