About spring cleaning
Humans have been spring cleaning for thousands of years. It has remained a popular tradition in Europe and North America largely due to the cold winters we experience compared to areas closer to the equator. Before the invention of the vacuum cleaner, spring was really the only time to clean. It’s warm enough that you can open up all the windows, but it’s before the bugs come out in force. What’s more, spring is often windy. House cleaners of yore relied on this wind to carry the dust out of their house through their open windows. Furthermore, spring marks the end of the season where we need to heat our homes. Historically, this was done via a wood or coal burning stove or furnace. This caused soot and ash to accumulate inside homes over the winter. Once spring rolled around, people were free to scrub away these residual combustion products.
