While the apartment homes at One 51 Place are pristine spaces with ample room for all of your belongings, there are a few things that you should keep in mind to ensure that your apartment is as healthy as possible. For instance, many times allergens, pollutants, and minor toxins can accumulate in everyday household items, so it’s in your best interest to be aware of them and clean your apartment thoroughly whenever possible.
Here are a few tips that you can follow at your Alachua apartment to clear the air a bit:
• When you purchase new furniture, dust it thoroughly and do your best to air it out. The “new” smell that lingers on recently bought furniture items is actually chemicals called “Volatile Organic Compounds,” or VOCs, that are used to treat stored furniture. Leaving your furniture outside briefly or in a well ventilated room with a fan should help to minimize your exposure to these chemicals.
• Clean your floors and furniture with a high-quality vacuum with a HEPA filter at least once a week. This will help to eliminate allergen buildup and keep your apartment home as dust-free as possible.
• Clean hard surfaces like wood or glass with microfiber cloths. These cloths capture dust and allergens without needing water or chemicals, making them ideal for quick, easy, and effective cleaning.
