Spring Cleaning Tips for Your Apartments in Deer Park

With spring just around the corner coming up this March 20, be sure to get into the swing of spring cleaning just before. Here are some ideas of things you can do to make the most out of cleaning your apartment:

1. Start off by getting rid of trash and donating working things you don’t have use for anymore to the Goodwill, Salvation Army, or a friend that can use them. Remember, the idea is to create space to bring the good stuff in.
2. Be sure to swifter, sweep, vacuum, and mop, even in those tight spots that you usually don’t get to. This is the time of year to focus on deep cleaning, especially before allergy season kicks in and you can become privy to allergy attacks because of the loose dust particles floating around.
3. Make sure to clean your hands thoroughly after deep cleaning your bathroom. You can find everything you need to make sure your restroom is absolutely spotless for less than $30 at Target. Consider replacing old towels with new towels just to get rid of old bacteria.
4. Make a playlist you can jam out to while you clean. It’ll help you get in the zone and stay clean.

Moving From A House To An Apartment

Couple with Moving Boxes

Moving from a house to an apartment is becoming more and more of a common trend. There are many beneficial reasons why people decide to move from an apartment to a home, some of which are: less upkeep, money saving, or maybe even just a personal preference. Either way, the change offers an opportunity for a fresh start on creating a new space and home for you and your loved ones. One of the most common reasons for a move to an apartment is having access to community amenities. You get accessibility to pools, fitness centers, clubhouses and more, all within a few steps of your door. If you’ve never made this kind of change before, it may seem a bit overwhelming, so here are a few tips you can follow in order to help your move go a little more smoothly.

 Make Your List, Check It Twice

Moving is always stressful for everyone involved, so planning ahead will ensure less of a headache during this process. As soon as you’ve made the decision to move, you should start a list of all of the items you can’t live without and what you can get rid of by selling or donating. We suggest starting off with identifying what items you use on a regular basis and how often you use everything. If something has been tucked away in your closet for years, it’s probably time to part ways with it, unless of course, it holds sentimental value. Allowing yourself time to get things together will help you slowly organize everything so that by the time your actual move day comes around, it will be smooth and simple. This is also a great way to get some extra cash before settling into your new home.

Preparation For Kids and Pets

You’ve probably experienced quite a lot of change throughout your adult life so the adjustment may not feel as drastic for you, but moving your kids or pets to an apartment could become rather complex. Both children and pets can be very sensitive to change, so it’s important to consider all the changes they will be dealing with and make adjustments.  

It’s important to help your kids with any adjustments they will be dealing with that comes with moving into an apartment. Things like possibly having a smaller living space, a new community, and having close neighbors are all things your children may not be used to, but you can encourage your children to look at the positive side to this new change. You can teach your kids how to make new friends with the neighbors and also keep in touch with the old ones by inviting them over to enjoy the community amenities together as your guests. The change will come easier if they know what they’re dealing with ahead of time and have time to adjust.

It’s also important to plan ahead for any adjustments for your pets. If your furry companion is going from a yard to a patio, or to becoming a house dog, be sure you take in the proper measurements for this transition. It might be a good idea to go through some training to ensure they are properly housebroken.

Measure Everything

Be sure that all the furniture you are taking to your new apartment home will fit comfortably in your new space. Your new complex should allow you to get the dimensions of each room, so take the time to measure your furniture ahead of time. It may be necessary to get smaller pieces of furniture and leave some furniture behind. Even if you aren’t losing that much in square footage, the layout of your new home may be completely different, so measuring everything ahead of time can save you time and money down the line.

 Moving can be tricky but following these tips will make a world of a difference. If you start doing these simple tasks ahead of time, you can turn a stressful move into a new and exciting adventure. These easy steps will have your new apartment feeling like a home in no time.
