5 Spring Cleaning Tips

How to Spruce-Up Your Apartment

Spring really is the perfect time to deep-clean your apartment! With warmer weather coming, you can open your windows, let in a little fresh air, and give your space some TLC.

Need some motivation? Take a look at these spring cleaning tips:  

1. Clean at a pace that feels right for you. 

Spring cleaning is meant to ultimately decrease your stress and help you feel more organized and relaxed in your home. It's not meant to cause a lot of extra worry and hassle! So, know yourself and tackle your spring cleaning chores in a way that works with your schedule. Some people like to take a whole weekend and tackle everything at once. Others prefer to go through one room or one category at a time.

2. Start from the top of your living space and work down.

Clean off and clean out closets, windows, and bookshelves before moving down to cabinets, countertops, then floors. A top-down approach is efficient because you won’t be knocking dust onto clean clean surfaces.

3. Clean appliances safely. 

Don’t risk damaging your appliances. Steel wool, bleach, ammonia, scouring powders, and harsh abrasives can scratch or dull stainless steel. Use only products that are designed specifically for stainless steel appliances.

4. Remove grime from floors. 

To clean plank flooring, first sweep or vacuum, then use a safe plank-friendly cleaner and a microfiber mop. We like a homemade mix of one ounce mild dishwashing soap in a gallon of warm water, and recommend an absorbent microfiber mop (without any built-in scrubbing material) to absorb any standing water and prevent scratches.

5. Be mindful of the products you use if you have pets or children. 

Look for effective yet safe cleaning products (or DIY options) if you have kids or pets at home, and be sure to store your cleaning supplies in a secure area. To make your spring cleaning time easier, be sure to label your products and use storage containers and buckets to organize them ahead of time.
