If you haven’t noticed: it’s spring! The weather has finally warmed up and everyone’s getting in the spirit of doing some good, thorough spring cleaning. Getting your rented apartment or townhome clean can be difficult depending on how much space you have or whether or not you know some of the best cleaning tricks. Worry not, however, because the Apartments of Wildewood are here with some tips and tricks that should help you get on the right path to a clean home!
1. Preparing Beforehand
Before you even get to cleaning, take the time to gather up all of your cleaning supplies. Placing everything in a handy bucket with a handle makes it easy to go throughout your home and get every single spot. Consider using all-natural cleaners, as well, as they offer a sparkling home without the use of chemicals.
2. Make Sure You Have the Right Tools
Don’t own a vacuum? Not a problem, just be sure to borrow, rent, or buy any of the tools you need beforehand. For apartment renters, you may not have the space to keep all of the cleaning tools you would like, so it’s always nice if you and some neighbors can lend each other some supplies.
3. Cleaning the Insides
Don’t just focus on getting the places that are immediately visible, remember that anything you can open up also has an inside that needs cleaning as well. This means that cabinets, closets, ovens, microwaves, drawers and more can all benefit from a bit of cleaning. Take the time to reorganize your kitchen drawers and you will be glad you did!
4. Don’t Forget Hidden Areas
When we do cleaning, we tend to think of the obvious spots like our kitchen, bathroom, and bedroom. There are some areas that don’t get as much attention as they should though, like behind furniture or even the upholstery of your furniture. Baseboards and walls can also usually benefit from a little bit of spring cleaning, too.
While you’re spring cleaning, take the time to declutter your rental and get rid of some things you don’t need. It can be hard to figure out what to get rid of, so focus mainly on things you don’t use and are easily donated. Always remember: the residents of the Apartments of Wildewood can take advantage of on site lockers to expand their storage options a bit.
