General Cleaning Tasks to Add to Your To-Do List

Before getting into the specifics of each room, there are some general cleaning tasks to tackle in each room of your apartment:

Declutter

Start by going through each room and getting rid of items you no longer need or use. Consider donating or giving away those items you haven’t used recently.

Dusting

Remove dust from surfaces, furniture, and fixtures using a microfiber cloth. Dusters are also great tools to get those hard-to-reach places, such as on top of your ceiling fans.

Vacuuming

Vacuum carpets, rugs, and upholstery in all of your rooms. Try to get those hard-to-reach areas you may usually skip in your cleaning routine, such as baseboards and vents.

Mopping

Clean all of your hard floors. Grab a bucket and mix up the ultimate floor-cleaning solution. One teaspoon of Tide powder laundry detergent mixed with one gallon of hot water creates one of the best cleaning solutions. It smells amazing and will leave your floors sparkling clean.

Window Cleaning

Wipe down windows, sills, and blinds for a clear view of the outdoors! Use a damp microfiber cloth to remove dirt and debris from your window sill. If your curtains are machine washable, throw them in the wash.

Baseboards

Clean all of your baseboards. First, vacuum with a bristled brush attachment. Then, wipe them down with a damp microfiber cloth or gentle all-purpose cleaner.
