Back to School: Tips To Keep Your College Dorm Clean

As the calendar has turned to the month of August, we already see signs of the fall season fast approaching. With this change of season, one of many things to come to mind here at Crucial Vacuum is Back To School – And Crucial Vacuum prides itself on helping families across the United States keep their living space clean and their air fresh.

Crucial Vacuum knows that most college students have greater things on their mind than clean floors, but we are going to drop some knowledge with five tips to current and incoming college students so they can feel clean and healthy throughout their college career.

Tip #1: Make Your Bed

Making your bed daily not only makes you feel cleaner, but it also is aesthetically pleasing and can make a big impact on how big your cramped dorm room looks and how big it feels.

Tip #2: Clean Your Sheets

Properly washing and drying your sheets keeps you healthy and leaves your bed fresh and allergy free.

Tip #3: Keep Your Closets in Order

Fold your laundry, hang up your clothes, and keep your shoes neatly in various assortments of organizers. This will prevent you from losing articles of clothing and doing excessive washes, wasting water, and using harmful chemicals for the environment more than you should! Be Green in College!

Tip #4: Clean Your Microwaves & Coffee Filters

We get it! You are in college and will probably eat a lot of ramen noodles and drink excessive amounts of coffee. But with that, you need to keep those appliances clean. A great way to do this is by using vinegar to clean out those dirty pieces of equipment.

Additionally, if you need any new coffee filters, we offer a great selection of reusable coffee filters available at great low prices that are environmentally friendly.

Tip #5: Clean Your Floors

Chances are your college dorm room floors are going to be covered in all sorts of unmentionables. Furthermore, we know that you are looking for a cheap vacuum that can just get the job done. Have hardwood floors in your dorm room? I doubt it…But if you do have wood floors, tiled floors, or laminate floors, we suggest the Sanitaire by Electrolux. Luckily we sell these filters, bags, and hoses (Alternative Beer Funnels) at great discount prices.

If you have carpet, Crucial Vacuum would suggest a Vacuum Cleaner! We suggest a lightweight, cheap vacuum such as the Eureka Optima or Crucial Vacuum’s own Crucial Swirl! Parts for the Eureka Optima are relatively inexpensive and the vacuum is small and light enough to be stored easily. Additionally, inexpensive vacuums such as the Crucial Swirl or the Bissell CleanView are a great choice and allow you to pocket that extra book money where it belongs, Beer Money!

Vacuums Suck! But cleaning doesn’t have to! It might not be the most exciting task, but have fun with it!

Having trouble with your current vacuum? You may need to replace your filters, belts, or a variety of other vacuum parts.

Extra Tip: Clean Your Bathroom

This one is especially for upperclassmen because they usually have private bathrooms! Routinely clean your restroom floors, sinks, shower heads, and tubs to ensure that you stay clean throughout your time at school.

So, College Students: There you go! Crucial Vacuums College Dorm Cleaning Tips will keep you healthy and happy while you pursue your future goals! Happy Learning!
