You’d be surprised how quickly an apartment can fill up with clutter, or become a little worse for wear when it comes to cleanliness. Especially if you’ve got a family living with you, your apartment could seem messy beyond salvaging. But don’t fret! There are ways to keep your apartment clean without spending your entire weekend tidying. Read on for a few quick tips on how to make your cleaning process easy and painless.
Hunt for Trash
Grab a bag and walk around your apartment, picking up any trash as you go. Start in one room and move to each one after, giving it a thorough sweep. You’d be surprised how trash blends into your apartment’s decoration if you leave it there long enough. This is also an easy way to make sure you’re emptying the trash bins all around the apartment.
Wipe Down Surfaces
Using the appropriate cleaning supplies, wipe down any surfaces room-by-room. Countertops, tables, sinks and windows. For the most effective cleaning process, start with an a disinfectant. Leave this sit for a few minutes, and then come back to wipe it down with an all-purpose cleaner. This will ensure that your surfaces are entirely free of germs and bacteria.
You should clean floors last, because dust and bacteria may be dispersed into the air as you clean and will settle on the floor. For hardwood, get out that Swiffer and give it a quick sweep. Since we’re trying to be quick, don’t bother with scrubbing–save that for when you have more time. Carpets should also be vacuumed. As you vacuum, go slow; this will allow for the vacuum to suck up as much dirt as possible. Remember to vacuum rugs, as well!
