Cleaning instructions for the common spaces of shared apartments

Otarannan kerhotilan hyllykkö

All tenants of shared room apartment are equally responsible for the maintenance of the common areas. This means that all tenants are responsible for cleaning after themselves, and that the common spaces of the apartment need to be cleaned at regural intervals.

We hope that residents pay special attention to cleaning the common areas especially during the coronavirus epidemic.  However, conventional cleaning detergents are effective against coronavirus, according to THL, so general surface cleaning especially in shared spaces, it is advisable to do regularly. Here we have compiled instructions for general cleaning in common areas.
