Apartment Cleaning Shortcuts

Cleaning your apartment can feel like a never-ending task. Luckily, finding a way to keep your space clean with minimal time and effort is easy to do by using these shortcuts provided by Apartment Guide!

Do A Little Each Day:

If you are like many busy people, you simply do not have time to give your entire apartment the thorough cleaning it demands each week. It can take hours to vacuum, mop, dust and scrub every surface of your space at one time. However, if you regularly devote 15 minutes per day to a specific task, you can keep your apartment looking great. For example, make an effort to vacuum on Mondays, clean the bathrooms on Tuesdays and so on.

Show the Kitchen Some Love

The kitchen may be among the most visible and most used rooms in your apartment, so it deserves regular attention. The good news is that at Arcadia Run, our kitchens feature granite countertops, updated appliances, designer cabinetry and luxury vinyl flooring – all surfaces that are easy to clean.  Next time you’re waiting for food to cook or water to boil, consider sweeping the floor, loading the dishwasher or wiping the counters down.  You’ll have a clean kitchen before dinner’s ready!

Tackle the Microwave

Microwaves are unfortunately prone to splatters. Ideally, you will simply wipe up the mess while it is still wet and easy to remove. However, if you leave the mess sitting there, it can harden and even become caked on with repeated use of the microwave. Rather than spend your time scrubbing the microwave, simply microwave a bowl with a half-water, half-vinegar mixture on high for five minutes. The steam will loosen the debris so that you can easily wipe it away.

Wipe Down Your Bathroom 

The bathroom can easily accumulate mess, especially since many of us are in a rush most mornings. Few people have time to clean the bathroom every day, but the mess from using this space can quickly turn into an unsightly problem. Consider wiping down the sink daily, before you leave in the morning and before bed at night.  It only takes a few seconds and will keep the area spotless between cleaning days.

Just by their nature, older apartments can be difficult to clean.  But at Arcadia Run, this is never a worry for our residents!  Our apartment buildings are brand new, and with Phase 2 now leasing, there are even more luxury apartments to call home!   So rest assured, by employing these simple ‘shortcuts’ in your weekly routine, your space at Arcadia Run will stay looking its best!
