Declutter

The atmosphere of any space will be less stressful if you declutter. Moreover, if you’re a condominium resident, you know very well that saving space is important. This is why you must start to declutter.

Decluttering is a pretty straightforward task. All you need to do is get a box and put in all the unnecessary items.

Throw in all unused boxes, search for stale items in the kitchen, donate old clothes, give away excess surplus, and dispose of non-functioning appliances. Do all these and you’ll be glad to stay at a gleaming and organized home.

In addition, keep your condo spotless every time before you head out. This will ensure there will no clutter build-up in the future.

 

Clean Your Kitchen

According to sanitation experts, the kitchen is the dirtiest area in the house. Here, the food you store and prepare contains more fecal contamination and bacteria than any other place.

When was the last time you thoroughly cleaned your sink, sponges, stoves, and cutting boards? These are the places and items you make use of to prepare all your favorite dishes.

In the midst of the ongoing pandemic, no one wants to catch a trip to the hospital because of foodborne illnesses. Since all your meals are made in the kitchen, maintaining its cleanliness must be your top priority when disinfecting.

According to a study, the COVID-19 can live on surfaces for days. The only guaranteed way to keep the virus at bay is to make a bleach solution by mixing equal amounts of bleach and water in a spray bottle. Spray it on a microfiber cloth and wipe down all your kitchen surfaces. For your kitchen tools, submerging them in hot soapy water will do the trick.

 

Disinfect High-Touch Surfaces

There are certain surfaces that are considered “high-touch”. This includes drawer handles, doorknobs, light switches, remotes, keyboards, and desks.

When it comes to high-touch surfaces, just wiping down it not enough. To best remove microbes, create a bleach solution, or use an alcohol sanitizer with at least 70% alcohol. Remember to use gloves when handling harsh chemical products.

 

Mop and Vacuum

Regularly vacuuming your condo unit is vital especially if you have carpets. As dust and dirt can accumulate deep in the fibers, you might find it hard to breathe in any fresh air. If you have hard-wood floors, mopping regularly is important as well.

 

Practice Good Hygiene

To further disinfect your condo, practice good hygiene at all times. This will include frequent handwashing and having the proper respiratory etiquette when coughing and sneezing.

Purchase disinfectant wipes and alcohol-based sanitizers as well. When you have guests coming over, it would be wise to have these items readily accessible.

 

Make Cleaning a Routine

Once you’re done disinfecting the whole place, remember to make this task a routine. Apply this practice every month and remember to never overlook the schedule.
