Man, do I hate cleaning. I’m just not a naturally tidy person, I guess. It’s not that I don’t appreciate a clean house, so much as I’m simply incapable of maintaining one. I can do a massive cleaning spree every month or so if I have to, but I’d much rather have someone else come in and manage my vacuuming, dusting, and general home maintenance if I could afford it. That’s why I dearly dread the onset of spring each year, when the time for spring cleaning quickly approaches without the opportunity for respite. Nothing is more frustrating than getting a few days of wonderfully warm and sunny weather, and then locking yourself in the house to clean up a year of messes. I can’t handle the process of being trapped inside a musty and stale house, while looking out the windows to see brilliant sunshine and warm breezes. The only thing that helps me tackle the mental distress of spring cleaning these days is the existence of our wonderful whole-house fan. You see, we have a specialized ventilation system at home that really helps us to manage the indoor air quality. It’s called a whole-house fan, and it works amazingly well to draw a huge volume of outdoor air to the inside of your home in the blink of an eye. The massive fan kicks into gear, sucks in a ton of air, and passes it through the attic. This pulls in the natural air outdoors and flushes the old, stale air out of our home through the roof. It’s not a perfect system, but at least the whole-house fan improves the air quality in a jif so we can do our spring cleaning sounded by new, fresh springtime air.
