Five Places You Won’t Want to Miss When Cleaning your Apartment

Are you about to start deep cleaning your apartment?  Are you unsure of everything that needs to be cleaned and how to do it?  When you are living independently in your apartments in Cayce, SC for the first time, you may struggle to know exactly what needs to be cleaned, when it needs to be cleaned, and how to fully clean it.  The first step is writing down a list of what you need to clean.  These are a few places in your apartment that you will want to deep clean on a routine basis.

Baseboards

You likely have baseboards in each room in your apartment, but you probably forget to properly clean these each time you clean your apartment.  Although your baseboards do not need to be cleaned each week, they should still be cleaned on a routine basis.  Consider adding baseboards to your cleaning schedule at least once every few months.

Window Treatments

Blinds, curtains, and shades should be cleaned on a routine basis as well.  Many windows can collect dust, which can build up over time.  If this is left neglected, your blinds may even get permanent damage.  You should also wash your curtains at least once every six months so that you can remove any allergens, dust, or other dander that can be collected over time.

Light Fixtures

Ceilings can be difficult to reach when you are cleaning your apartment, especially if you have chosen a unit that has higher ceilings.  However, you want to be sure that you clean your light fixtures to remove dust.  When you clean your light fixtures, you also allow the light to shine brighter, as the dust will prevent the light from fully shining.

Ceiling Fans

Like light fixtures, ceiling fans will also need to be cleaned on a routine basis.  Ceiling fans can collect a lot of dust over time, and this dust can be scattered throughout your apartment, decreasing your air quality each time you use it.  Even though you may assume that your ceiling fan is being cleaned each time it is spinning, this is inaccurate.  You will need to dust off all parts of the fan on a routine basis to keep it fully clean.

Behind Appliances and Toilets

Many people forget to move their appliances or wipe down behind toilets when they clean their homes.  Although this does not need to happen each time you clean, you should wipe down behind your appliances a few times a year.  You should also strive to clean behind your toilets at least once a month.  This will keep residue from building up, which can prevent odors, stains, and other tough messes.

These are five places in your apartment that may be easy to forget when you are cleaning.  If you are looking to move out on your own for the first time, our apartments in Cayce, SC are perfect for you.  Contact us to hear about our available rentals today.
