In the spring you constantly get a bad Conscience: The neighbors knock in the garden, the carpets, clean the Windows and edit the terrace with the high-pressure cleaner. Inevitably, the view on the own sleazy corners falls there.

this year is particularly bad. Because of the corona crisis, we are all the much at home and not only make more Dirt – he bothers us more. It’s high time for a spring cleaning – a good old Tradition, the power according to the experts, but still make sense.

“In and out of the dust is difficult to adhere to, volatile organic Compounds, such as various metals, PAHS from combustion residues, biocides, and plasticizers,” says Heinz-Jörn Moriske by the Federal environment Agency in Dessau-Roßlau.

dust, there is always – and this is okay

The same is also true for microorganisms such as fungi and bacteria. Therefore, you should ventilate at least twice a day for several minutes, the best cross. And when Cleaning only damp mopping, then vacuuming, recommends Moriske.

However, even if you every day brush, is always dust in the apartment, says the environmental hygienists. “Dust in the usual concentrations for the healthy people and the immune system is also not a Problem.”
