Maintenance Tip

Keep your air circulating, to keep your home fresh and free from mildew The key is Good airflow and circulation. This is easier than most people think and following these steps will improve the quality of the air inside your home!

  1. Keep your bedroom, closet, and bathroom doors open as much as possible to allow for air to circulate freely throughout your home.
  2. Keep the bathroom fan running for at least 10 minutes after you take a shower to pull the moisture out of the air.
  3. Your windows and sliding door are meant to be opened. However, with the high humidity here in the Lowcountry, you should keep them closed more than open and run your air conditioner/heater and ceiling fans to keep the air moving and keep the humidity down in your home.
  4. If its 45 degrees outside and you’ve got your heat set at a higher temperature, your windows will sweat and you may get some condensation around the window casing. To keep mildew from growing, be sure to keep this area dry and clean. If mildew does begin to grow, a simple water and bleach solution, or cleaner such as Clorox Cleanup will do the trick!
  5. You can avoid mildew in your closets if you don’t pack them tight with clothing and other items, and make sure that the closet door is open to let the air flow.

These are just a few tips to make sure that your apartment has clean, fresh air, to make it a great HOME for you and your family!
