9 Green Spring Cleaning Tips For Your Condo


















Cleaning your condo has to be a permanent part of your spring cleaning regime. Although Singapore has very little fluctuations when it comes to weather cycles, the time during spring is always the best to give your condo the cleaning and refurbishing it needs.
However, spring cleaning involves the use of many hazardous chemicals and mixes which may well make your condo look tip top but also bring many health hazards to life.
Therefore, in this post today, I will share some excellent green spring cleaning tips for your condo

1. Replace Toxic Paint with Eco-friendly Paint

Are you planning on retouching parts of your condo with renewed painting this spring cleaning? If yes, then do spare a thought on the chemical laced paints that you have been using. Household paints contain umpteen amounts of chemicals, many of which are toxic and related with air pollution, contributing to respiratory problems, nausea, cancer and asthma. They also contain Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) that keep releasing toxins into the surroundings for up to 6 years after application.

Therefore, this spring cleaning, go for paints that are low on VOCs. These are water based and don’t smell as they have greatly reduced amount of toxins. You can look online for stores that supply them.

2. Get Rid of the Junk

One the major obstacles while spring cleaning is all the useless junk you accumulate over time. It comprises of paper, plastic and other materials which pile up and leave your condo in a shabby state. This spring, go paperless and throw all the junk away. Switch to paperless modes of settlement and stay away from printing your emails, receipts and bills. Give out the useless junk to people who need it more. Make your condo more spacious and organised. Consequently, it will become cleaner.

3. Get Rid of Chemical Air Fresheners

Most of the air fresheners that you use contain harmful toxins which have been linked to fatalities like hormonal problems and cancer. Therefore, refrain from using chemical air fresheners.
You can use natural fresheners like baking soda or scented oils to freshen up your condo. Better still, open those windows and let the sunlight refresh your apartment in the greenest of ways possible. Nothing does better spring cleaning than natural fresh air and sunlight.

4. Implement Efficient Water Management

Water wastage is one the most pressing global concerns. An average individual wastes over 20 gallons of water each day. This spring cleaning, use some effective water management tips to save on water usage and make your condo increasingly well managed. You can use toilet dams to reduce water usage by 20%. You can easily get water dams at departmental stores. Replace those lavish showerheads with low-flow showerheads to save 50-70% on your water usage.

While using water based solutions for spring cleaning, make sure you use absorbent cloth and use minimum solutions for maximum cleansing.



5. Stop Energy Leaks: Improve your surroundings

The devil is always in the details. Do you know that most of the plugged in devices like chargers leak energy in standby mode. This leaked energy reflects on your electricity bills and also increases the overall global carbon footprint by increasing the consumption of natural resources.

This spring cleaning make sure you implement efficient electricity usage standards in your condo. A cleaner environment also means a cleaner home. Therefore, remove those extra plugged in chargers and appliances, switch them off after use and regularly service them with a solution of water and baking soda to keep them clean and efficient.

6. Choose Low Glare Lighting

Coming back to energy efficiency, you should really be taking a second look at those high intensity yellow bulbs and tubes in your condo this spring cleaning and try replacing them with low power, low glare CFLs and shun incandescent bulbs to avoid damage to your vision, and then help save the environment too. CLFs use a lot less energy than incandescent ones and last 8 times longer. They are easy to clean and come down light on your eyes.

You can also use motion sensors to automatically switch on and switch off these lights to save more on electricity and become more efficient.

7. Use homemade cleansing products

If you just go into the departmental store and pick up cleansing products based on the higher volume of chemical content, then you have got it all wrong. You will open your house to a plethora of toxins and health hazards like asthma, chronic respiratory ailments and cancers. These toxins can cause eye irritation, headaches, birth defects, infertility and much more. Scared?

Well, you can always go for natural cleaning agents. Home based products like plain soap and water, vinegar, baking soda and lemon juice can work as wonderful replacements for these chemicals. Go ahead and use them for your spring cleaning needs. For instance, kitchen counters can be completely renewed of stains by using a mixture of vinegar and common salt. There all sorts of YouTube videos you can watch and learn to create your own natural cleaning mixtures.



8. Reuse and Recycle

Coming back to useless junk, you can always use them in your spring cleaning needs. For instance, you can use your age old t-shirts to make good cleaning cloths. They will go excellently with natural mixtures to clean your condo.

You have to realise that most of your junk can be repurposed and used to make your spring cleaning more efficient and organised. Old towels and toothbrush can be repurposed as cleaning utensils and can be used easily to polish and cleanse stainless steel utensils and kitchenware.
And then, you can always give away useless stuff to those who need it more. What a great initiative to include in your spring cleaning plans this year.

9. Introduce an Organizational Structure

I always advise that being a little paranoid about keeping your condo organized always makes cleaning more efficient. This spring cleaning, take a pen and paper and assign proper spots and names to all your household stuff from kitchen appliances to your different sets of PJs. Keep that X-Box remote next to the central console and stick to this regime.

This helps you in cleansing your house fast and more efficiently. Otherwise, you just have a lot of cleaning to do. In an organised interface, you know what you have to clean, where it is and what will clean it best. It’s always better to have a plan that to go all guns blazing! Go ahead, organize those closets.

How To Check Aircon Gas Level?



















If you live in Singapore, then you might not think your life without having an air conditioning unit in your house. With the help of aircon you can fight the humidity and you can control the temperature also in your home and office both. However, you can get this result only if you have a properly working air conditioning unit in your office or home. For proper functioning of air con a lot of factors are important and right amount of gas level is one of those things. That means if you see a drop of gas level in your aircon unit then you must need to fill it again before using that.

But if you have no idea about how to check aircon gas level then you cannot take necessary action in case of need. So, in this article I am going to share details about How to check aircon gas level and other important things related to gas level of aircon unit.

Importance of Gas level: Before I tell you the way about how to check gas level, first I would like to share some basic things about the importance of gas or coolant in your aircon functioning. Air con unit mainly contain three section in it that include compression, condensation and evaporation. Aircon does these three work with the help of three separate unit and all these three units work together to produce cold air for you. In this process aircon coolant or gas utilize the cooling effect and it blows the cold air in your room. As a result of that you get a cold and comfortable room even if it is very much hot or humid outside your room.

However, if gas level is not up to the mark then it will not to proper cooling and you will not be able to get the desires result with it. In fact, if you will have only 20% of drop in your gas level, then it will affect the cooling of your aircon unit by 40%. As a result of that your aircon unit will need to work much harder, it will consume more electricity and you will not get enough cooling also with it. So, now you know and understand how important it is to check the coolant or gas level on regular interval.

When you need to check it: If I talk about the times when you should skip all other things and you should check the gas level of your aircon unit before using it any further, then I can share some situation for that. If you notice that you are running your air con unit at full speed and then also it not cooling your room then you should check the gas level of your air con. Also, if you notice any kind of unusual noise in your aircon, then also it might be sign of reduction in gas level and you should not wait any further to check the coolant status of your aircon unit.

Other than this if you will have lower gas level in you aircon unit, then may keep on running, its compressor would never stop and you will not get any cooling also with this not stop running. If you notice this issue then that’s definitely a sign that you have lack of gas level in your aircon unit and you need to check it as soon as possible. Opposite to continuous running frequent on and off of you aircon unit is another sign that you have lower amount of gas in your aircon unit. Indeed, this is just opposite to what I said in the same paragraph, but that’s a sign of this issue and you should take it accordingly.

So, if you see any of these complications or issues in your aircon and you are not able to understand the reason for same, then you should skip other things and you should check the gas level. After checking gas level if you notice it’s really a drop in coolant then you can call your mechanic and you can ask him to change it before using your aircon unit again.



How to check gas level: As Far as method for checking of gas level is concerned, then you cannot do it with a manual way. This particular process requires specific tool called gauge pressure testing tool and if you have it then you can use it to check the gas level. Also, when you use this tool, then you need to know how to use it properly and how you can get the actual reading from it.

So, if you know how to use this tool then you can plug the gauge testing device with your aircon unit and you can check gas level by yourself. And if you do not have it with you and you want to keep it with you all the time then you can search for that online or you can buy it from local market. Also, if you want you can rent it from some local shop and you can test the gas level by yourself.

Although you can check the gas level by yourself, but this is a complicated process and you might not fill the gas at all in your aircon unit. That why I would strongly recommend that if you see any sign of performance drop that I shared above in this article, then you can assume it is gas level drop and you can think about calling an expert at that time only. When you will call a technician then he will check the problem and if will notice it is a problem in gas level then he will refill it for you and you can have cool room again. And if he will notice problem is because of some other issue then he will suggest a solution for that problem as well and he can solve the issue for you. That means in either way you will get a comfortable room if you will cal mechanic.
