Most people do a major cleaning at the start of spring, but why doesn't fall get the same treatment? Consider giving your place at The Blackwood a good cleaning to start fall off the right way. Follow these tips to get started:

  1. Clean the carpets. They've been collecting dirt and grime since you last cleaned them in the spring. It's time to give them another thorough cleaning. Either rent a carpet shampooer or get a professional to clean them for you.
  2. Wash the windows. Whether there are fingerprints, dust, or dirt from the outside on your windows, clean them to give your apartment a fresher, cleaner look.
  3. Organize your clothes. When the seasons change, it's the perfect time to re-evaluate your wardrobe. Go through your closet and sort through your clothes and shoes. Toss anything that's worn out and donate any items that you no longer want. Pack away your summer clothes to make room for your fall and winter apparel.
