Want to start your spring and summer off on the right foot? A clean house will surely help! Here are a few insightful tips to help you conquer all of your cleaning tasks for the coming months.

1. Work from the top down, inside to outside, to avoid getting what you just cleaned dirty again.
2. Do one room or one area of a room at a time to avoid unfinished jobs. The satisfaction of seeing one room sparkle will make the hard work feel like it's worth the effort.
3. When tidying, reduce trips around the house by temporarily depositing items in one organized area near by. Once you’ve finished cleaning you can find those miscellaneous items a proper place.
4. Efficiency is key, so clean two things at once. While laundry is going, scrub the shower stall.
5. Make small repairs on easy to fix items….If you're not handy, hire someone who is, or better yet, look up a fix-it-yourself video and learn while you clean.
6. Invest in a good pair of rubber gloves to protect your skin and nails from cleaning chemicals.
7. Dust before vacuuming or cleaning the floor. Try an extendable feather or lambswool duster for reaching above window casings, door frames, and corners. Household rags are invaluable for jobs requiring a damp cloth – natural fibers work best.
8. Buy a mop with a squeeze mechanism and a decent-size heavy-duty pail – ones with a measuring scale help get soap-to-water ratios correct.
9. Don't stand your brooms on their bristles. It will destroy their shape and diminish their effectiveness. Instead, get a broom holder or hook at your local home improvement store.
10. Use a Swiffer for light dusting, or your favorite broom or vacuum attachment to clean hardwood floors. Then damp-mop with a mild cleaner such as Murphy Oil Soap to make your floors sparkle and shine.

Windows - make use of your window space by creating beautiful snowflakes with a glue gun

Some of the best summer celebrations involve barbecues or cookouts. Click below for a few safety tips for your next get together. 

1. Whether you use a charcoal or gas barbecue always make sure to follow proper safety precautions when lighting, cooking, and storing the barbecue.  Follow factory guidelines when using lighter fluid or propane tanks, clean your grill regularly to prevent grease fires, and store your grill away from anything that is flammable or hazardous. 
2. You should know the proper cooking temperatures and preparation for the food you are serving at your get together (especially meat). The last thing you want to do is make your friends or family sick. 
3. Make sure to have plenty of drinking water on hand so your guests can stay well hydrated.
4. Provide shade or a covered area where your guests can get out of the sun and cool off.
5. If you will be serving alcoholic beverages at your get together, please enjoy responsibly and make sure your guests do so as well.
6. If you will be lighting off #fireworks at your get together make sure you use extreme caution when handling, lighting, and disposing of the fireworks.  Keep water or a fire extinguisher nearby, never point the fireworks toward anyone else, and always stand a safe distance from the devices.  Make sure you know local laws and regulations regarding pyrotechnics and fireworks.

Start 2015 off fresh with these green cleaning and organizing tips!

Below are a few tips to spruce up your apartment for the new year.

1) Go through cabinets, closets, and desks to find and recycle all unneeded paper products.
2) Feeling the burden of an overstuffed closet? Give your old clothes a second life; donate any unused clothing to Goodwill!
3) Recycle your electronic products. Most electronics stores will take your old or broken products and recycle them. Avoid tossing those in the trash!
4) Use eco-friendly cleaning supplies. Most stores carry a great selection of environmentally friendly cleaning products, pick some up on your next shopping trip. Or, better yet - make your own! Simple household items like baking soda and vinegar can be used for any number of jobs.
5) Freshen up! Simmering water, citrus peel, and fresh mint or basil will lighten up the air in your apartment without any added toxins from synthetic air-fresheners (and it will save you money as well!). Make sure you never leave your stove unattended.

Why wait until spring, when cleaning can be this simple? Keeping it green will help your apartment stay healthy and toxin free. What are your favorite go-to green cleaning or organizing tips? Comment below to share your ideas!

Summer is almost over!

Time for one last vacation before the warm weather ends? Click below for tips to keep your home safe while you enjoy your vacation.

1. Let the landlord or office manager know you will be out of town. They can hold any mail or packages that come for you, and more importantly watch for any suspicious activity around your home.  
2. You can arrange to have a trusted friend or neighbor watch your home while you are out of town. Make sure to give your landlord or office manager the name of the person you have watching your home so they do not report this person as a trespasser.      
3. Unplug electronics that are not absolutely necessary while you are away. Most electronics still use power if you leave them plugged in. Examples of things to unplug include: TVs, video game systems, lamps, computers, and small kitchen appliances.
4. Clean your home before you leave. Remove any perishable foods from the refrigerator, take out the garbage, and sweep or vacuum.  Why ruin your vacation by having to clean when you return home?
5. Lastly, if you are not taking your car on a long road trip, make sure to remove all valuables and park it in a safe place.

I absolutely love this place me and mom just moved here about 4 - 5 months ago and we love it. It is a breath of fresh air from living in a house for 20 years.. The neighbors as well as the staff are extremely friendly. whenever there is something wrong maintenance comes within a few days of request and fixes the issue. The pool and amenities are well maintained and nicely kept. Neighborhood is really quiet and peaceful! I Love this place would recommend it to anyone!

I rarely rate and post reviews, but just wanted to share my two cents. It has been close to two years since i moved into this community, we had a great experience with a friendly neighborhood. The management promptly responds in case of any maintenance required and enjoying it. It is a safe place, well maintained pool area and gym and a nice place to live in.

The staff is very friendly, and very helpful. They helped me load up a bed in a box for me. And they remember who you are which is a nice feeling. Very quiet and the grounds are nicely maintained. Plenty of parking. The maintenance people are very friendly and promptly flipped my fridge doors on the day that they specified. Nice neighborhood, close to everything one needs to shop and dine. My only complaint is that when I first was given the keys to the place, the bathroom had not been cleaned and the floors had not been mopped. When I mopped the floors the water looked like thin brown gravy. Yuck.

I have been living here since 1.5 years. I know this place has best schools near it. Also, this is very near to most of the work places in Cary. Sometimes I feel very lucky to be here because of the smart folks like Katelyn and Taylor in the management office. Whole staff is very prompt, understanding and proactive. This place has almost all kinds frequently needed shops in the vicinity. I would definitely recommend this apartment complex to anyone who is looking for one.

The leasing office staff really make this an amazing place to live! They are friendly, professional, and most importantly efficient. Katelyn runs a tight ship, and maintenance requests are handled in a timely manner. The property itself is very well maintained with a gorgeous pool area and grills for entertaining. The residents are incredibly friendly and I made friends very quickly. Everything you need from groceries to dining is within walking distance. I appreciated how quiet the community was and would definitely recommend this property. Great staff! Great amenities!

We have lived here for 5 years going to six. We like the location for these apartments are close to our kids schools, parks, shopping malls, restaurants, church, you name it. During all this time we have had our maintenance requests done in a timely manner. Also the club and pool are very well taken care of as well as the landscaping. The monthly fee is not as bad considering this apartment complex is in Cary. Katelyn, the property manager, has always been very helpful and understanding to our requests. We feel safe living here, and I highly recommend these apartments for any person or family.

I'm doing this review for Taylor, an office manager, at Cary Greens. We are here with temporary housing after a professional relocation to the area. The staff has been great to deal with. They respond to emails quickly, have taken care of small repairs in the unit efficiently and in a timely manner, and are consistently helpful and cheery. The apartment that we are in is really comfortable, large, updated decor, and quiet. It's also very centrally located. Several grocery stores are near by, some local stores just across the street, it has a highly rated elementary school in the area. It has worked out just right for us. I would definitely recommend this apartment complex to anyone who is looking for one.

Pleased with Cary Greens consistently since 2014. Neat, well maintained, they redid the pool area and gym, motivation to work out! I like that if I have had even a tiny issue like blinds needing fixing, it is addressed right away. Katelyn the property manager is courteous and timely in responding. Having lived at various locations across the country, I have realized what a difference management makes. Katelyn is extraordinarily professional. She gets to the bottom of a concern and is accessible, often after hours.
