How to Keep Maintain a Clean Apartment
Apartments are known for being smaller. Fitting the amount of items you need for your day to day life in a smaller living space can be difficult. Maintaining the cleanliness of your apartment can be even harder. We want you to enjoy your apartment at Legacy Court Apartments in Midvale, so we have gathered some tips and tricks to help you create and maintain a clean apartment.
Put Things Away as you use them
Putting things away right after you use them is a wonderful habit to make. This way you don’t leave any unnecessary clutter around your home for you to pick up later. Make sure to have a place for everything you use on a day to day basis. If you have an organized home it is easier to put things away after you use them each time.
Put Away your Clothes
Laundry is a chore that is often a mess maker. If you fold and put your clothes away immediately after they are done being washed it will save you from having a pile of clothes to sort through and put away later. This can also be applied to your shoes. If you take your shoes off where you store them you can immediately put the where they belong.
Wipe Down Surfaces
Wiping down surfaces such as your kitchen and bathroom counters after use will save you the hassle of having to clean an extremely dirty surface later. Keep sanitizing wipes near surfaces that are used on a daily basis to help you in the wipe down process. Keeping this habit will also make sure your counters are free and clear of clutter.
Get Rid of Extras
Owning double of things in your home will just take up space and create a hassle for you later. While it is good to have a back-up for later, keeping it in your home may not be ideal. Donate, sell, or store those extra items so you have more space in your apartment.
Doing the Dishes
Nothing is worse than having a sink overflowing with dirty dishes. One habit that will prevent this from happening is by washing and or putting the dishes in the dishwasher right away. This will prevent clutter and unsightly smells coming from your sink. Dishes can be done in a matter of seconds if this habit is kept.
Dusting and Vacuuming
Take a day out of your week and dedicate that day to dusting and vacuuming your apartment. This will not only provide the cleanliness you desire, but also keep you in check when it comes to picking up the items you use off of the floor. If you have pets you might want to consider vacuuming a few times a week.
