Spring-cleaning is celebrated in cultures across the world. Due to the tilt of the Earth on its axis, the northern hemisphere begins to see the winter-scape come to life with daffodils blooming, grass greening, and temperatures warming during late March, into early April.
Spring-cleaning has grown into National Spring-Cleaning Week. This annual effort has expanded beyond house and business cleaning into peoples’ finances, technology, and other areas of a person’s life. With that in mind, Rock Creek Senior Living is looking forward to completing this year’s community-wide spring-cleaning effort!
Dusting is a key component when it comes to cleaning. It is not only a visible clean, but the circulating dust particles in the air can cause respiratory issues. One benefit of spring cleaning is it creates a calm environment that can reduce stress with a sense of accomplishment.
Changing your HVAC filters during spring-cleaning will reduce dust particles and allergens that can cause respiratory issues. Clogged filters can also cause your HVAC unit to overheat, causing unnecessary repairs to your system.
This will be the third year of our tradition of spring-cleaning within the community and each year is better than the last! Come see for yourself how a clean, well-kept community brings smiles to its residents and staff.
