How Spring Cleaning Improves Sleep

How Spring Cleaning Improves Sleep

Finally - it’s spring! The mornings are brighter, better weather is on the horizon (hopefully), and many of us are starting our annual spring clean!

A good spring clean is the perfect way to refresh not only your home, but also your mind and lifestyle. So dig out your feather duster, treat yourself to the latest Hinch products, and read on to discover our best tips for a hygienic home.

Our top five spring cleaning tips

1. Declutter your space

First things first - declutter! It’s one of those tasks we all like to avoid, so now is the time to sort through everything you simply don’t need. Allocate yourself some time in the coming weeks to keep, throw, sell, or donate.

Remember - your home, and, more importantly, your bedroom, should be a place of tranquillity where you can unwind after a long day. So it’s no surprise that a cluttered space can leave you feeling stressed, anxious, and disorganised. Taking the time to spring clean your home can help prevent pests, dust, or mould, whilst also encouraging a fresh start as we enter into a new season.

2. Clean, clean, clean

A proper spring clean does exactly what it says on the tin - we’re talking dusting, hoovering, washing, the list goes on! Make sure you wipe down every surface, clear any cobwebs, and get into any awkward nook and cranny that you would otherwise avoid.

If you have wooden flooring, clean these with a microfiber mop and a ph-balanced floor cleaner for the perfect finish! Where carpets are concerned, now is the time to give them a thorough clean. Although they may look clean, carpets and rugs can harbour a lot of bacteria from everyday use. A good carpet cleaner can make the job easy, or there are always professionals who are guaranteed to do a great job! Carpet sprays are also very popular, simply spray on your flooring for a deeper clean - and best of all, there’s no need to vacuum away! For smaller rugs, a quick wash cycle will destroy any bacteria and have them looking like new!

Take a look at our care guides for help cleaning your bed frame - whether wooden or fabric!

3. Wash your bedding

Also known as allergy season, spring can bring about plenty of dust, pollen, animal hair, shedding skin, the list goes on.

Whether it be duvets, pillows, mattress protectors, or throws, it’s time to strip your bedding completely and get rid of any old linen that is very much past its prime. Give everything a thorough wash - mattress included - and ensure it is thoroughly dry before replacing.

To give your mattress a deep clean, try vacuuming it using the upholstery attachment - remember to give every side a refresh! Then, add a few drops of essential oil, such as soothing lavender, chamomile, sandalwood, or ylang-ylang to some bicarbonate of soda. Sprinkle this over the mattress and leave for one hour, then vacuum again.

The Sleep Council recommends changing your mattress every seven years, so, if you’ve had yours longer than that, it’s probably time to get rid. Check out our full range online - from memory foam to hybrid, we’ve got your back!

4. Treat yourself to a new mattress

Whilst we might be a bit biased, one of the easiest ways to improve your sleep is with a new mattress. Is your mattress starting to sag? Springs constantly interrupting your slumber? Or maybe it just looks like it’s time to let go? Whatever the issue, if your mattress isn’t what it used to be, this can massively impact your sleep quality.

For ultimate comfort, we recommend a memory foam mattress, or for extra support, we recommend pocket sprung mattresses. Why not take a look at our full range to find your perfect match? Or check out our blog on mattress toppers to see why they can help improve sleep quality too!

5. Let the fresh air in

Why not make the most of better weather and open your windows? Not only will it give the room a good airing, but it’ll work wonders for your mood too! Fresh air is proven to improve brain function, boost your immune system, and help those with sleep problems get a better night’s rest.

We recommend aerating your room for at least one hour per day, but anything from 20 minutes will still do a pretty good job! Why not try leaving your bed to air whilst you get ready in the morning.
