Quick and easy tips for keeping your apartment clean and passing Health and Safety inspections:
Use aluminum foil to line the stove-top burners.
Don't forget to clean the inside of your oven with oven cleaner.
Use Soft Scrub R for sinks, showers, and counter tops.
Use Clean Shower or other shower sprays after showering to maintain cleanliness and make the next cleaning easier.
Mop all of your tiled floors weekly.
Put away food, clean up food particles and take out your trash to avoid ant and rodent problems.
Sweep porches and keep clean from debris. Trash on porches and first floor containers attracts skunks and other rodents; place all your trash in the dumpsters.
