Just because you live in a rental or apartment does not mean you are exempt from the seasonal duties of Spring Cleaning. Dread it, run from it, Spring still arrives. Now is the perfect time to declutter, deep clean, organize and balance your apartment. Rental Beast has put together a list of the top tips to help you own your spring cleaning and impress your guests.
Go Room by Room. The best way to ease yourself into the cleaning mood is to clean your apartment room by room. Lessens the chance of overwhelming yourself, and gives you tangible goals to work through. We suggest working from back to front, but starting with the largest room is probably best.
Get rid of things you don’t need. Does your living room really need that fifth lamp that doesn’t work? 45 knick -knacks in your half bath? No kitchen really needs three ferns. Declutter your apartment, and open your floor plan up. Get rid of things you haven’t used and you will have less to clean!
If you are having trouble letting some things go, consider storing them away. With Spring’s arrival, you no longer need all those large winter coats, scarves, and hats. Package them up and store them away, creating more space in your apartment and less clutter.
Replace your smoke detector batteries!
It’s also the optimal time to handle your refrigerator situation. Clean and clear it out completely, so you can wipe it down. Make sure to get every nook and cranny as it’s been a while since you actually cleaned the fridge. Don’t be afraid to get new Tupperware too.
Spring Cleaning can suck, but it doesn’t have to. Rental Beast is here to support you, and make sure your apartment is something you can be proud of. For more helpful tips and all things about rentals and apartment living, visit RentalBeast.com.
