Reaching the end of your lease contract can either be liberating or very sad. It is sad to say goodbye to a place that often has so many wonderful memories and moving to a new home is always scary. On the other hand, it can be quite liberating to reach the end of your lease contract, especially if you have experienced plenty of issues with your landlord, just don’t feel comfortable in your apartment or if you are moving on to a bigger, better and more beautiful home.
The one thing that everyone looks up to when it comes to moving is getting your old home or apartment cleaned out properly. Most tenant contracts require the tenant to give the apartment a proper clean once all furniture has been removed. This is usually the toughest cleaning job to take on because there are so many places dirt and messes accumulate when your furniture makes it hard to reach certain spots.
Here are a few sustainable tips to get your apartment spotless before you move on.
Hire a cleaning company
One of the best ways to get your apartment clean and sparkly before you move in is by hiring an end of lease cleaning company to take care of the cleaning for you. These professional companies use eco-friendly cleaning products with no harmful chemicals and their industrial cleaning machinery can deep wash tile grooves, walls, carpets, upholstery and much more without consuming nearly as much water and electricity as you would have if you took on these cleaning projects yourself.
Rent industrial cleaning machinery
If you have your heart set on cleaning your apartment yourself then you should at least rent industrial cleaning machinery. Power washers are amazing for getting dirt and grime removed from walls, in any hard to reach the spot and from floors without using much water at all. Industrial carpet cleaners also clean your carpets through a tank that recycles the water and a greater surface will be cleaned while using limited amounts of water. These professional cleaning tools also enhance the cleaning results and help the apartment dry off much quicker without the risk of growing mold in moist areas.
Only invest in green cleaning products
If you are buying cleaning products then look for green products that don’t contain harsh chemicals. Any chemicals you use will eventually end up in our underground water supply and should be limited as greatly as possible.
Don’t waste water
Freshwater is becoming scarcer with each passing year. Cleaning products and pollution greatly contaminate freshwater sources. It is important to use as little water while you clean as possible and to try to save freshwater as much as possible.
Use one big transportation truck
Use a professional moving company with a big truck instead of borrowing your cousin’s trailer to get your stuff relocated. Moving companies can get your entire apartment moved in one single trip where you would have had to make multiple trips if you moved your stuff yourself. Fewer trips mean less pollution, less effect on natural resources and can save a lot of time.
