Spring cleaning in the USA was necessary because of our coal furnaces. My father told me his mother would clear almost everything out of the house and give it a good scrubbing. The entire house had to be wiped down--ceilings, walls, furniture, carpets needed to be hauled out and beat with those pretty antique carpet beaters. The culprit was the coal dust. Our spring cleaning/seasonal purges doesn't necessarily involve coal dust, but springtime is a good excuse to clean/clear out our homes, too.
Good job, sir!!
