Are you a student at College or University? If so, then at this time of year you’ll be gearing up towards the end of term, getting all of your assignments in and start preparing for your exams. It’s busy and stressful, and you probably don’t have time to do much else. Does this mean you can still neglect your cleaning duties? It shouldn’t that’s for sure.
Ensuring your student house stays clean and tidy is important. It’s part of your tenant’s agreement, and if and when you leave, your landlord will inspect your accommodation for its cleanliness and to see if there’s been any damage to the property and its furnishings. If there has been, you won’t get all of your deposit back, as this will be used to help pay for any repairs or professional cleaning duties.
Now, understandably, this is the last thing on your mind, as you approach the crunch period of your education. However for some, this does present a perfect time in which to get your house sorted, especially if you’re going to be moving out soon after your exams have finished.
Some students actually prefer to get cleaning and tidying sorted before they crack on with University and College work. It’s a way of putting off the inevitable and there’s some truth in the old adage that you can tell when a group of students have plenty of work to do, as their home will be immaculate.
However for others, the problem is time; where are you going to get the time from to clean your house? Well you don’t have to worry because there are plenty of professional cleaning services of which you can take advantage.
When it comes to cleaning your flat though, it’s important that you consider all rooms, especially those that are the dirtiest and often the most used. For students, this is the kitchen. It’s an important place to get clean too, as it needs to be hygienic for your own health and wellbeing. This means getting the floors, surfaces and even the cupboards clean, but also all of your appliances and even behind them where grease and grime builds up the most.
Above anything else though, in your student kitchen the one thing that desperately needs to get cleaned is your oven. It’s the appliance that is used the most, because it’s quick and easy to use; remember all those pizzas and oven chips? It’s also an area that is often neglected, and one that causes students to lose their deposits as a result. So don’t neglect your oven, get it cleaned as soon as you can this spring.
If you do decide to do this yourself, be sure to use caustic-soda free cleaning products. This will prevent damaging your oven with a corrosive chemical, which could cost you a considerable amount more if your landlord needs to get the oven fixed or repaired as a result.
Alternatively, you could use the services of a professional oven cleaning company. Not only do they know what they’re doing, as well as using the right cleaning products, but it also means you don’t have to worry about getting your oven cleaned during this busy time of year, and can concentrate on your studies instead.
