Spring cleaning involves thorough cleaning, which mostly involves heavy duty equipment. In regions which experience winter, this activity is often done in spring. Its purpose to do away with any dirt that may have accumulated in winter and to spruce up homes in anticipation of summer.
The evolution came before the invention of the vacuum cleaner. The month of March, which is in springtime was deemed to be the best time for cleaning homes because the weather gets warm and windy. Due to the warm weather, furnaces were of no use, meaning that home owners could wash down soot from the walls of their houses. The activity has been carried on to modern times. With progresses in technology, people are using complex machinery to clean up their households. There is a National Spring Cleaning Week, which has been marked annually since 2003.
