Default Why is this file so big?

Hi. I'm modelling a house in maya. suddenly i notce that my file size went from about 300 KB to 4.3Mb.

I've narrowed it down to a swirl shape i made.

The shape was made by making one single revolution and then simply duplicating it many times. then i selected all the revolutions, combined them. and smoothed them.

Now these two swirls are taking up 4.2mb by themselves. and i have to duplicate them 3 more times so there'll be 8 swirls in total.

is there anything i can do to reduce the size of them without making a simpler version?
