After a long day of working remotely or staying home with your children, we understand that perhaps cleaning your apartment home is the last chore on your list. However, cleaning your apartment home can help your space feel warm and inviting, particularly now that COVID-19 vaccinations have opened up the doors for social entertaining. If you’ve found yourself wondering how often to clean your apartment home and which high-traffic areas need the most attention, read on to find out more.
Clean Your Kitchen Daily in Your Apartment Home
Your kitchen within your apartment home should be cleaned daily. This is particularly important since cooking can expose numerous surfaces to raw poultry or bacteria, potentially contaminating any meals that you cook. To ensure that your apartment kitchen is clean regularly, you’ll want to wipe down all surfaces with an antibacterial spray or an all-purpose cleaner following any meals you cook and the close-out of the evening. Additionally, appliances like your microwave, stovetop, and fridge should be regularly cleaned with warm soapy water and a microfiber cloth. Additionally, you’ll want to sweep your kitchen floor daily and be sure to mop once a week.
Keep Your Bathroom Clean
Due to frequent use, the bathroom’s within an apartment home can get dirty quickly. This is particularly true if your household has a few members using the same bathroom throughout the day. To help keep up with the cleanliness of your bathroom, you’ll want to ensure that you’re washing your bathroom towels between every three uses. The shower and toilet should be cleaned once a week with a bathroom cleaner, and the bathroom floor cleaned daily with a surface-safe floor cleaner.
Your Bedroom Should Be Your Sanctuary
In your apartment home, your bedroom should be your sanctuary following a long workday and time spent outside of your home. While you might only use your bedroom when you’re ready to wind down for the evening, it’s essential to clean it to eliminate the potential for dust mites. You’ll want to wash all bedroom linens every one to two weeks, air your bed out by pulling your sheets off, opening a window, and letting your mattress sit without any sheets for an hour at least once a week or whenever you wash your linens. Additionally, you can sprinkle your bed with baking soda and vacuum it to reduce any dust that’s accumulated throughout the night while you slept.
