When you go apartment decorating, you have a lot of options. You can decorate your apartment very differently than if you were trying to sell it. If you were trying to sell an apartment, you would probably want to make the place as contemporary as possible. If you are decorating an apartment, you can try a more eclectic approach. That is one of the advantages of apartment decorating.
Of course, many apartment dwellers do not have a lot of money. It may be hard to save up for an apartment dry cleaner. You can also try to save money by doing some of the decor yourself. This is something you can even do on your own if you get bored with the standard look.
However, if you are like most apartment dwellers today, you are looking for apartment decor that will add value to your apartment and to your monthly expenses. So, you need to think about quality and price. Fortunately, there are some ways you can use to save money on your apartment dry cleaner. Here are some of them.
First, you should not let your dry cleaning bills get too high. This is especially true if you live in a well-known apartment building where the landlord usually provides free dry cleaning service. Although this may be nice, the apartment complex or condominium association may charge you a fee every month if you use their dry cleaning service.
Second, when looking for an apartment decor, you might also consider getting a professional dry cleaning service. However, don’t let this put you off. Professional dry cleaners will charge more than home dry cleaning services, but they will get your apartment looking neat and well-kept. Plus, you can trust them to handle all your cleaning needs efficiently. Plus, you can be sure they will follow the safety guidelines set out by the Clean Air Act and other relevant legislation.
Third, keep an eye out for apartment shops that offer apartment dry cleaning services. They usually do not advertise these services. However, you can find them if you keep your eyes open. You can also ask your building’s management if they know of any dry cleaning shops.
Fourth, you can also ask around to your friends or neighbors. They might have experienced dry cleaning at their place. Or, they may know someone else who has experience with this service. Also, you can check online at apartment decor sites or at large apartment locator sites. You can ask them what apartment type they would recommend for you.
Fifth, use your common sense. Dry cleaning an apartment does not make sense to you. After all, you are renting the apartment. So, it does not make sense to pay for dry cleaning when you can simply use a clothes hamper to dry off your linen and clothes. However, if you are on a strict budget and you have to pay for dry cleaning, at least you will be doing something to prevent your apartment furniture from smelling moldy and dirty.
Sixth, ask for references. Yes, references are important. A dry cleaning service should be able to give you at least three references upon request. Make sure these are from the same location that you are renting the apartment from, as this will help you to determine the quality of service.
Seventh, call the company. Ask to speak with the owner of the company. He or she will be able to tell you all about the service that they provide. You can also find out how many years the company has been in business. If they are new or just starting out, this is a definite no-no.
Finally, ask for some sort of inspection documentation. Usually, the carpet and upholstery dry cleaning company will provide a written estimate of what it is going to cost to get the apartment furnished (carpet only). This will include the amount of time needed to dry clean the apartment, steam clean the carpets, as well as remove any debris. If there is any type of damage such as holes, stains, or ripped carpet, this will also need to be clearly documented as well.
Before you choose a company, make sure that they have a license and insurance. This will protect your apartment if anything happens. Also, check their website for testimonials and/or recommendations. A good company will have nothing but good things to say about them.
