So, keep on reading if you want to know everything that there is to know about properly cleaning and maintaining a condo.
1. Using Too Many Products
We get it. You want to keep your condo as clean as possible. And with so many surfaces to wipe down, it can be tempting to use tons of cleaning products to get the job done.
Our advice? Use a multi-surface cleaner for your entire home. Only clean those harder-to-clean areas, like your stovetop, with a specialty cleaner.
Simply put, one multi-surface cleaner should be more than enough to get the job done.
2. Not Using a Cleaning Schedule
If you’re having a hard time keeping your home clean, a cleaning schedule could be a game-changer for you. Because depending on how fast your home gets messy, as well as a few other variables, you may need to clean your home more often than once or twice a week.
A pro tip? Spend a few weeks documenting how you feel about your home’s cleanliness each day. Use this information to then construct a cleaning schedule that you can follow going forward.
3. Cleaning the Floor First
A common cleaning mistake that everyone makes, and not just condo owners, is cleaning their floors first. In fact, you should go the opposite route, and clean your condo from top to bottom, to make things easier for yourself.
Not doing this will lead to your floors needing to be cleaned once again when you’re done with your counters, walls, and ceilings. To avoid this problem, you simply need to work your way down, from your ceiling to your floor, when you’re cleaning.
4. Breaking HOA Rules
Most condo owners have to deal with strict HOA rules and regulations. And while those rules may not matter when you’re cleaning the inside of your home, they can come into play when you’re cleaning your home’s exterior.
Because of this, we recommend that you contact your local HOA & condominium association management team beforehand. That way you can make sure that you know what you can do, and what you can’t do before you clean the outside of your condo.
