Apartment Cleaning Tips for Granite Counters
First, we’re going to talk about your granite counter tops. They can stain very easily, so it is very important that you clean up any messes right when they are made.
Something that is very good for cleaning your counter tops would be a multi-surface cleaner like this Pledge ®. Do not use any bleaches, vinegar, bathroom cleaners, or anything on the granite counter tops. Things like multi-surface cleaners or granite-specified cleaners are preferred.
I will be using the multi-surface Pledge®. It’s very simple with the microfiber towel. Just spray it and make sure it’s wiped up really [well].
Apartment Cleaning Tips for Stainless Steel Appliances
We do feature stainless-steel appliances. It is very important that you keep these regularly cleaned. They can collect fingerprints, dirt, and oils. So, make sure you clean off your fridge, your microwave, and your oven along with your dishwasher as regularly as possible.
Again, it’s very important that you do not use bleach, vinegar, or bathroom cleaners on your stainless-steel appliances. The best things for you to use are multi-surface cleaners, stainless steel cleaners, and any other cleaner that is definitely [safe on] stainless steel […].
So, I will be using the multi-surface Pledge® cleaner. Just spray it, and make sure you go with the grain whenever you’re wiping your stainless-steel appliances and get it off there as smoothly as possible.
Apartment Cleaning Tips for Laminate Flooring
Now, we will talk about your hardwood flooring. It’s very good to keep them swept and vacuumed very regularly.
Next, I will be able to show the proper way because there is a right way and a wrong way to keep these clean.
This is laminate hardwood flooring. So, it is very important that you do not get it too wet because it can damage the floors.
So, it is very important you do not use a traditional wet mop. It’s best to use any multi-surface cleaner or laminate flooring cleaner.
To demonstrate, I will be using our handy multi-surface cleaner. You spray it very lightly, try to not to soak the floors because again, it will damage it. You just use the microfiber mop and just get that right up.
Apartment Cleaning Tips for Carpeting
Last, we will talk about your carpet. It’s very important that you keep these vacuumed regularly and if there are any spills, stains, or anything like that, it’s very important that you use a spot treatment as soon as it happens.
Last, but not least, we recommend that you get these professionally cleaned every 6 months.
