It is almost springtime, and you know exactly what that means – spring cleaning! It isn’t exactly the most exciting topic, but it is required. As much as people don’t like to spring clean, there isn’t anything better than the feeling of freshness and cleanliness in your apartment once you’re done. Spring cleaning does not have to take up the entire day if you do it the right way. With the following tips, you can spend less time sanitizing and more time admiring your flashy townhouse apartment. Read on to learn some spring cleaning tips!
Use a Squeegee to Remove All Pet Hair
If you’ve got a dog or cat living with you in your apartment, chances are that your floors are layered in hair. Save your poor vacuum from getting instantly jammed up with pet hair by turning to your shower squeegee for assistance. This will help you remove large clumps of hair from your carpet. Go through a second time with your vacuum to truly finish the job.
Go on a Room by Room Basis
Even though some apartment units aren’t the biggest, cleaning can get overwhelming in general if you try to attack the entire space all at one time. However, it is easier to clean one room at a time. You will feel much better when you’re able to cross an entire room off of your list and move onto the next one. Somehow the whole process seems a lot more manageable this way. You might also want to start with your favorite room or space that will require the most effort. Leaving that specific room until the end is not the best idea since you will be tired by the time you reach it. You will feel satisfied that you left the comfortable spaces for the last bit of spring cleaning.
Get Rid of Your Clutter
It is going to be very challenging to vacuum your floors and dust off your tables when there is clutter in every corner. Before you even break out your cleaning supplies:
- Go through each room to recycle, throw away, or donate specific items.
- Organize your belongings into those four piles until every single thing has been put into its place. If you have not used something in the last year, chances are it could be donated, thrown away, or recycled.
- Ask your neighbors if they’d like any items before you dispose of them.
