Now Entering Russ's World
Spring cleaning seems to be somewhat instinctive. As the days get longer and warmer, it seems natural to open up the windows and air out the house. The next thing we know we are washing the windows to let the sun in and we are moving the furniture around to sweep away the winter blues.
The tradition of spring cleans is deep rooted in our culture. In the Catholic religion, churches are given a thoroughly cleaning before Good Friday. In the Jewish faith, families clean their homes before the beginning of Passover. For those of the Greek Orthodox religion, their homes are cleaned before the start of lent. All of these traditions take place in March or April depending on the calendar that they follow. This is the same time that most people start itching to clean and get organized after the long dark winter.
The way in which that we clean has changed over the years. For example, the housewife in the 1800s, had to scrub away the film left behind from oil lamps used to light their homes during the winter month. Carpets were taken outside to be cleaned. The drapes were taken down and washed by hand. The technology and the modern appliances that we have today did not exist.
Besides the use of modern conveniences, for those who do not have the time or simply do not like to clean there are now services in which you can contact to do your spring cleaning for you. One such service is Handy. Handy is a cleaning service that can be booked from an app on your smartphone or tablet. It is a fairly simple process. All you need to do is select the rooms you want cleaned, and the time you want it done.
Handy, however, does more than just clean. They can take care of that leaking sink or put that new bookcase together. Handy operates in close to 30 cities across the United States. They are also located in the United Kingdom and Canada. Now, it’s time to get cleaning.
