Cleaning Tips

Refrigerator and Microfridge Cleaning

  1. Carefully pull refrigerator away from the wall and unplug.
  2. "Dust" the back of the refrigerator with a vacuum.
  3. Use a degreasing cleanser to wipe down all exterior surfaces.
  4. Discard food. Wash all removable refrigerator parts such as ice trays, shelves (gently lift and pull forward,) and compartment drawers in warm, soapy water.
  5. Wipe down inside of fridge with a NON-abrasive cleanser and warm water.
  6. Defrost the freezer.
    NEVER use anything to pry the ice off the surface; doing so could damage the coolant line. The better way is to place a bowl of hot/warm water in the freezer to speed the defrosting process along. To aboid the danger of electrical shock, do not use another electrical appliance, such as a hair dryer.
  7. Sweep the floor where refrigerator will be returned.
  8. For rented microfridges, leave the unit unplugged. For all other refrigerators, plug the refrigerator in and check to ensure it is working. (If it is not working, please submit an online work order.)

Stove/Oven Cleaning

  1. Carefully pull stove away from the wall and unplug.
  2. "Dust" the back of the stove/oven with a vacuum.
  3. Use a degreasing cleanser to wipe down all exterior surfaces.
  4. Gently lift the top of the stovetop (like lifting the hood of a car), and wipe down surfaces just as you did the exterior. Don't force it open; some stoves do not open.
  5. Use oven cleaner on interior surfaces of oven. Please use sparingly to prevent liquid from running into the electrical plug and the elements or gas burner.
  6. Sweep the floor where stove will be returned.
  7. Allow the stove to dry. When it is dry, plug the stove in and check to ensure it is working. (If the stove/oven is not working, please submit an online work order.)

Bathroom Cleaning

  1. Wipe down all surfaces of the bathtub, shower, sink and commode with a NON-abrasive cleanser. NEVER use a bowl cleaner on the chrome fixtures as it will destroy the chrome. Please be sure to clean under lip of bowl where the water enters the bowl.
    Repeat as many times as necessary to get all surfaces clean.
  2. Sweep/dust and mop bathroom floor repeatedly until clean, including corners.

Additional Cleaning

  1. Move furniture, sweep floor, and use dust-pan to remove debris; do not sweep the debris into the common areas and leave it there. Return furniture to original location and sweep again, if necessary.
  2. Remove all trash from the room and common areas and take to the dumpster. Failure to remove trash will result in a minimum charge of $25 per resident.
  3. Clean common areas, including the living room, bathroom and stairwell. Again, any trash left behind will result in a charge to each resident.
