The concept of ‘Spring Cleaning’ originates from many traditional cultural beliefs of the Persian, Jewish, Chinese and some from the North American and Northern Europe regions. According to some of these customs, the season of Spring signifies their New Year or a new start to their lives. Fresh spring growth stands for good luck and abundance. This is why a regular spring cleaning is still considered auspicious and a sign of positive things to come.
In fact, many important festivals from around the world still drive the concept of a spring cleaning and a spring cleaning is therefore considered important.
