Encouraging Spring Cleaning in Your Community
The official start of spring is just weeks away, which will certainly come as a relief to those parts of the country who have experienced a particularly rough winter. Spring brings warmer temperatures, more hours of daylight and spring cleaning – a chance to organize, simplify and get rid of things we no longer need.

Spring cleaning can be an opportunity for you to clean up your community and add curb appeal right before the busy spring and summer leasing season kicks off. Want to get your residents involved? Designate an upcoming Saturday as Spring Cleaning Saturday in your community. While your staff focuses on sprucing up common areas, your residents can do their part by cleaning and organizing their own homes. Here are a few ideas to get residents involved.

Load up on trash and recycle bins
Place extra trash and recycling bins throughout your community for the weekend. Residents will take advantage of the extra bins to do a deep cleaning of their apartments, and the extra bins will prevent your community from being overrun with trash.

Arrange for a donation pickup
One person’s trash is another person’s treasure! Arrange for your local Salvation Army or other charity to come to your community to pick up clothing, books and other items that your residents no longer use. Ask your residents to drop off their donations at the leasing office by a certain time to ensure their donations make it on the truck.

Get the word out
Let your residents know about Spring Cleaning Saturday and the resources that will be available to help them tidy up their pads. Hang flyers in the leasing office, fitness center, elevators and other common areas. Include a reminder in your community newsletter. Post reminders on your social media channels. The possibilities are endless!

Wrap up with a social hour
End your spring cleaning day on a social note! Invite your residents to the clubhouse for a social hour with drinks and snacks to encourage residents to connect with their neighbors.
