Maintain Your Apartment Easily with These Crucial Tips

Whether you’re a landlord or tenant, keeping an eye on the state of your apartment should be a key priority if you want a comfortable dwelling at all times.

Now, yes, maintenance services are a key benefit of renting in the first place, but that doesn’t mean tenants don’t need to do some minor maintenance themselves. For example, suppose you’ve neglected your apartment long enough to cause severe damage. In that case, you’ll more than likely lose your security deposit, which would be especially regrettable when it’s easy to keep your apartment looking good with just a few simple tips.

So, with that in mind, it’s time to take a look at the simple ways you can keep your apartment looking fabulous while protecting your peace of mind.

Plumbing Away

Plumbing doesn’t sound simple at first glance, but the reality is that there is a lot that can be done to make sure your pipes don’t get unnecessarily damaged from irresponsible usage.

Keep oil, coffee grounds, or food solids from getting into your drain to make sure your pipes are constantly flowing as well as they can. In the bathroom, try making sure you’re cleaning your hair from the bathroom sink and shower/bath drain at least once a month to keep the strain on your pipes at a minimum.

Keeping your pipes flowing is an excellent way to prevent blockages that could lead to leaks, which will inevitably lead to mold growth and wall damage to your apartment.

Hot Fuzz

One area that doesn’t get enough attention is the heating and air-conditioning of your home. Apartments are complex spaces to get air flowing through compared to houses, so it pays to make sure your air conditioning and heating elements work as well as they can.

Excessive dust isn’t just bad for you; it’s also bad for your apartment as well, with an overabundance of dust leading to malfunctioning systems and damage to your apartment’s electrics.

Hit the Floors

While walls can be repaired relatively easily with a quality non-toxic wall mending agent or white grout pen, floors have a much more difficult time and are subject to more abuse.

Keeping your floors clean is crucial to their lifespan and will require regular cleaning to be properly maintained. Sweeping is recommended to be done at least once a day, with mopping and vacuuming happening once a week.

Cleaning your floors also allows you to check for wet spots around the apartment and alert your landlord/tenant to any potential problem areas. Wet sites, in particular, are potentially dangerous if left to fester, leading to a build-up of bacteria that can form mold if left long enough.
