Whether it’s spring cleaning season or your Carmel apartment simply looks grubby, a detailed cleaning will have it looking its best again. It can be easy to get overburdened when taking on more than you can handle at once. To make cleaning your unit less stressful, we’ve created an apartment cleaning checklist for Carmel tenants.

The multitude of messes in the dining room are from food. If you have food remnants stuck to the floor or table, put a warm, damp rag on top of it for a minute to loosen it up.
  • Brush loose crumbs off tabletops and seats and pay attention to tacky places.
  • Dust chair backs and legs.
  • Polish a wood table or employ a glass-cleaning product on your glass furniture.
  • Go with a feather duster to address display shelves with breakables or dishes.

Cleaning Checklist for Apartment Kitchens

Kitchens are often messy and sticky from your daily meal prep. You can use standard cleaning products to cut through those greasy stains, but a few everyday materials can do the job too.
  • Wipe off cabinetry with soapy water on a cloth followed by a clean, slightly dampened cloth.
  • Wipe down kitchen counters with an appropriate product for your specific material or you can treat with white vinegar.
  • Clean the sink with a mixture of baking soda and a bit of water. Some baking soda in the garbage disposal will aid in removing odors. Wash it away with water once it’s left for 10 minutes or so.
  • Run a hot water cycle on the dishwasher with a container of vinegar inside. Once complete, wipe it out with a clean rag.
  • Heat a cup of water to a boil in the microwave to let the dampened air loosen up burned-on food debris. Remove any mess with your choice of damp cloth or sponge.
  • Wash stovetop components in the sink. Spray the oven door and stove with a store-bought cleaning solution or an equal mixture of vinegar and water and use a little elbow grease.
  • Act in accordance with your oven’s self-cleaning instructions or just use the mix of baking soda and water to scrub it out.
  • Utilize a food-safe cleaning product or an equal blend of vinegar and water to clean the the fridge shelves and interior; then wipe away whatever’s left with a wet rag. Once done, move the fridge and get the floor below with a broom.
