4 Winter Apartment Cleaning Tips You Probably Forget

New Year, New Cleaning Habits

2016 is a fresh start for everyone in Buffalo. Some may change their eating habits, quit smoking, or begin a rigorous exercise regiment, but what about that messy apartment? Whether you live with someone else in Buffalo or alone, your loft or apartment is probably not ship shape. What a better time to to change the way your apartment Buffalo? Here are 5 often forgotten about tips on how to freshen up those Buffalo apartments, and relieve the cabin fever.

The Out of Reach Areas

These are the areas that no one likes to clean. They involve far too much effort and no one ever sees it anyway right? Wrong. The dust and grime buildup in out of reach area hurt the air quality of your Buffalo apartment, especially during the winter, when we are sealed up indoors with all the windows shut. Devote time to the top of your fridge & the back corners of your cabinets. Dust first, then sanitize. Don’t forget about behind the fridge. You might want to invest in some rubber gloves.


Older apartments and lofts around Buffalo can collect dust on and around baseboards. Dust collects far more in the winter, with less air flow. Before you do your standard sweeping, mopping, or vacuuming, give the baseboards a once over. Not only will it look better, but it will eliminate dust buildup.

That Old Mattress

Clean & Flip the old trusty mattress. First, wash your sheets that probably need it. Take the vacuum to the mattress and eliminate any crumbs or other remnants of bed food. Anyone stuck inside their apartments in Buffalo NY knows how many meals end up in the comfort of swaddling blankets while binge watching Netflix. Sprinkle a little baking soda on any stains, followed by a little dish soap or peroxide. Once you’re all cleaned up, flip and rotate the mattress 180 degrees to prevent sagging.

Lights & Ceiling Fans

In another effort to improve the air quality of your apartment in Buffalo, don’t forget about the dust up above. Common surfaces like end tables and headboards are seen so often that it becomes necessary to clean to avoid embarrassment, but the ceiling fixtures aren’t so noticeable. Dust the overhead light fixtures, fan blades, and any other lighting. Use a ladder, and try to use a spotter!
So there you have it Buffalo, a few things to remember when you clean up your apartment. Remember, a clean apartment is a happy apartment!

History – Situated in the core of downtown Buffalo, 298 Main Street was first developed by Dr. James Platt White in 1881 –  an eminent citizen who was influential in the creation of the University of Buffalo School of Medicine.  The “original” White Building, as it was then known, was 7 stories tall and the first fireproof building in Buffalo.  In 1905, Dr. White’s widow, Mary Anna White, replaced the original building with the current structure – the “new” White Building (now called The Main and Cathedral Building).  Designed by the renowned architecture and structural engineering firm of R.J. Reidpath and Sons, it is constructed from concrete and brick and fronts both Main Street and Cathedral Park.  The building’s architecture is quietly elegant, blending the symmetry of Georgian Architecture with Italian Renaissance design elements such as stone dentil cornices.

Amenities – Among the amenities included in each apartment will be granite countertops, high-end stainless steel appliances, modern energy-efficient lighting fixtures and in-apartment laundry units.  Building amenities will include: 24 hours a day security and valet parking; 16 hours a day concierge; video intercoms to announce guests; and inclusion of utilities (except electric), cable and internet.  All apartments include 1 free parking spot at the Pearl Street parking garage with guaranteed availability of 1 more for a small monthly fee.  NFTA Metro Rail stops (in both directions) are less than 100 feet from the entrances and at least 15 crosstown NFTA Bus Stops are within a ¼ mile radius.
