Spring is an especially beautiful time of the year. It signals birth and growth as flowers bloom and trees begin to sprout leaves.

Abundant Organic Material
With tons of new life springing up, there is also plenty of dead material for mold spores to feast on. Though this is beneficial outdoors, it can cause havoc indoors.

Throughout the winter, your house stays closed up, allowing little of the elements from outdoors to enter. In the spring though, open windows and doors, as well as increased traffic in and out, allows plenty of opportunities for allergens, dirt, and mold spores to enter your home. Spring cleaning isn’t just an arbitrary holiday; it’s meant to provide households with a time to clean and combat the allergens that come along with spring.
