Spring Cleaning Checklist For Your Luxury RPM Living Apartment
Kiss those winter blues goodbye as we dive headfirst into spring - and spring cleaning! Check out a few of our tried and true recommendations that are sure to refresh your space and that should definitely be on your spring cleaning checklist this year.
Shampoo carpets & rugs
From snow and salt to dust and grime, winter can be hard on all carpeted surfaces throughout your home, so be sure and give them a good wash as we lead into the cleaner, fresher spring season! Believe us when we say, even if they look clean, they can ALWAYS be cleaner. Thank us later with this one.
If you’ve never thought about cleaning your curtains before, you’re not alone. As one of the most forgotten items to clean in the majority of homes, your window curtains can easily collect dust and debris without you realizing it, and can even be responsible for aggravating your allergies. While you should always follow the instructions specific to your items, typically a simple wash cycle or steam cleaning is an effective way to refresh your luxury RPM Living apartment.
Deep clean mattresses
A good rule of thumb to follow to keep your home at its freshest is to deep clean your mattress once every season, and spring is no exception! As you replace your winter bedding over to your spring selection, clear off your mattress, give it a 180 flip, and sprinkle in some baking soda. After letting it sit for 20-30 minutes, vacuum up the baking soda, and using a damp sponge and gentle dish soap, generously give your mattress a good wipe down. Always allow your mattress time to air out and dry fully before reapplying your bedding!
Wash outdoor areas
Scrubbing or power washing your deck / patio, washing your driveway, treating your home for any mildew, and washing your outdoor furniture are all prime examples of ways to properly refresh your outdoor space and prepare your home for spring. This is also the perfect time to get ready for any outdoor hosting events you have planned, such as BBQs, pool parties, and more!
While this is a task that can eat up some time, decluttering your closet in preparation for spring and summer is the perfect way to renew your space, and should definitely be on your spring cleaning checklist. Donating unwanted items and reorganizing your closet will not only enhance the visual appearance of your closet, but will make getting ready and finding your favorite outfits so much easier.
