Prepare Your Gainesville Apartment When You’re Heading Home for the Holidays

If you plan to take a trip to visit family or friends for the holidays, there are a few important things you can do to prepare your Bellamay Grand apartment for your departure. A few simple minutes preparing your apartment can save you money and ensure you have a clean and comfortable place when you return.

One of the first steps to take is to clean out the fridge. This prevents the possible mess and odors caused by any food that could go bad while you’re away. Cleaning your fridge will also remind you to clear the trash out of your Gainesville apartment. Be sure to check all of your home’s trash cans, since there are few things worse than coming home and smelling the odor of old garbage.

In addition to cleaning out the fridge and trash cans, there are several other places and items that you should thoroughly clean before you leave, including:

  • Bathroom
  • Bedroom
  • Pantry
  • Porch
  • Dishes
  • Sinks

It’s also important to check all of your home’s electrical devices before you leave. Check burners and ovens to be sure they’re off and won’t be a fire hazard while you’re away. Next, go through the apartment and make sure all lights are off. Finally, you can leave your air conditioner/heater on while you’re away, but leave it at a moderate setting as you’re heading out the door. That way, your home will still receive the benefits of air circulation, but you’ll keep your energy usage down.

This preparation can make coming home to your Bellamay Grand apartment even more relaxing after your holiday vacation. To learn more about our available units, contact our leasing office today.
