How to Keep Your Apartment in Top Condition

When you rent an apartment, the property management company will go out of their way to ensure that it looks perfect when you move in. While you’re living there, you can keep it looking its best by committing to some basic cleaning duties. When you stick to a cleaning schedule, not only will you avoid the need to frantically clean every time someone is coming over, but you will be ready for your property management company’s move-out inspection and keep the maximum amount possible from your deposit. These tips will help to keep your apartment looking great every day.

Vacuum on a Regular Basis

Vacuuming is one of the easiest and most effective things you can do to keep your apartment clean. When you ignore the vacuum, dust and debris get ground down into your carpet and cause damage. Not vacuuming also allows allergens to build up, which can cause respiratory symptoms, itchy skin, and runny eyes. Vacuum at least once a week, preferably more often, but speak to the property management company if you think that your carpets need to be shampooed.

Clean and Disinfect Bathroom Surfaces

No one likes using a dirty bathroom, so make sure yours gets regular attention. Use non-abrasive cleaners and soft cloths on bathroom surfaces to get them clean while maintaining the shine. Look for a formula that has a disinfectant in it to reduce the spread of germs. If you have a problem with a clogged drain or other plumbing issue, ask the property management service to send out a maintenance crew rather than trying to fix it yourself.

Report Issues in a Timely Manner

If you have a problem with your apartment, such as a leak or pest problem, report it to the property management right away. The longer maintenance issues are allowed to fester, the more damage they can cause. They also interfere with your enjoyment of your living space and can make your apartment unsanitary. Your property management company will respond to your repair needs quickly.
