How to keep your apartment in Berlin clean
Here we present some elements of the cleaning equipment available in this apartment. Also some tips about cleaning.
Kärcher Vacuum Cleaner
The machine achieves top cleaning results for dry, wet, fine and coarse dirt. The vacuum cleaner has a robust and impact-resistant 12 litre plastic container, 4 metre cable, as well as 1.8 metre long suction hose with straight handle, Clips floor nozzle and fleece filter bag. The single-piece cartridge filter allows dry and wet dirt to be vacuumed without filter replacement and can be installed on the filter basket by turning clockwise.
Vileda Bucket with Mocio
To clean floors with warm water AFTER vacuuming. When using it on wooden floors please use water mixed with a capful of cleaner specifically for parquet/laminate. When using on ceramic floors (bathroom and kitchen) use water mixed with a capful of vinegar cleaner (Essigreiniger). You will find both products in the kitchen. For wood/laminate floors, ensure all excess water is wrung from the mop. Also in the apartment you will find a broom, a dustpan and a classic mop along with different types of cleaning cloths.
How to easily remove limescale
Berlin's water is safe to drink but contains a significant amount of limescale. The water will leave deposits when it dries on surfaces, for example the kitchen sink (or the shower screen in the bathroom). To clean the deposits of lime simply put a vinegar-based cleaner and wait 10 minutes. Then remove the vinegar with the dissolved lime by rubbing lightly with a cloth.
