Cleaning: Have you forgotten any of these places

Cleaning: Have you forgotten any of these places

There are many places in your home that you don’t think about cleaning. They’re not hidden in the sense of being tucked away in a hard-to-access space. They’re right there, staring at you, and you pass by them every single day. These are the spots where dust bunnies can thrive, allergens can build and more. 

Be sure not to miss them next time to ensure maximum home health.

Cabinets and Drawers 

Cabinets and drawers are often overlooked when it comes to cleaning, but they need to be cleaned just as often as the rest of your house. You can start by pulling out all of the contents and wiping them down with a damp cloth or sponge. If there is any food left behind, use a little bit of dish soap to remove it. Then wipe down the inside of the cabinet or drawer with a clean cloth dipped in warm water. Finally, dry everything off with another clean cloth or towel. 

Baseboards 

Baseboards are also overlooked when it comes to cleaning because they’re hidden away from sight most of the time. However, they tend to build up dust over time if they’re not cleaned regularly and this can lead to allergies if you breathe in too much dust every day. To clean baseboards, use an old toothbrush or rag and some water mixed with vinegar or lemon juice (a teaspoon per cup) as this will kill off any germs on them without damaging them as bleach would. 

The Back of Your Refrigerator 

Get a soft cloth and wipe down the back of your refrigerator. You’ll be surprised at how much dust accumulates there over time. Make sure to remove all food from shelves before cleaning as well as any containers or items stored on top of it (since they can easily fall off). 

Your Toilet Brush Holder 

This is another area that people often forget about when cleaning their bathrooms! Remove anything from inside the brush holder and clean with warm water and soap or vinegar. 

The Back Of The Toilet 

A toilet is a place where germs can build up if not cleaned regularly. The back of your toilet often gets neglected, but it needs to be cleaned just as much as the rest of your bathroom. 

The Shower Curtain Rod 

Your shower curtain rod is another area that is often overlooked when it comes to cleaning. This can lead to mold and mildew buildup if you don’t clean it regularly. Simply remove the hooks that hold your shower curtain rod in place and clean with warm, soapy water. 

Cleaning is essential for a happy, healthy home. South Pointe Apartments & Homes is proud to provide a secluded yet accessible, tranquil community to the Foley area. We are only minutes from countless recreational possibilities and more. Our community is setting the standards for

What Our Residents Have To Say

My boyfriend and I applied for a South Pointe home in the Summer of 2020. Turns out, someone applied for the same house about 30 minutes ahead of us! Sarah and the office staff were very helpful, and processed our application and put it down on the next available house. Me and my boyfriend LOVE the house we live in. We have lived here since August, and have not had a single issue. The houses and neighborhood are both really quiet and kept so clean! I love not having to cut my own grass! They are also pet friendly (which is hard to find). They even plan fun and safe events for neighbors to come together (while practicing social distancing), and enjoy the neighborhood. I can’t wait for it to warm back up so we can enjoy the pool and other great things offered while living here. We plan to stay here for quite some time!

I promised my roommate if we made it through hurricane Sally and got everything back to normal, I’d 5-star this place. The constant updates when there was news, the free meals, and quick clean up . Really this would have been a nightmare without this team. I will never forget their kindness.

Moved to Foley about 7 months ago and decided to lease a house at South Point Apartments & Homes. My husband and I couldn’t be happier with our choice. The office staff and maintenance crew are excellent! The location is WONDERFUL! Far enough from the beach to escape that traffic yet just a 15 – 20 minute drive when the ocean ” calls “.After owning for most of our life it’s wonderful to not have any upkeep or yard maintenance as it’s all provided. The saltwater pool, nice clubhouse, dog park and wooded areas all provide nice amenities that are well cared for.

I have lived here at South Pointe apartments for almost 3 years. It is the best community and apartment complex I have ever lived in. Not only is it quiet, you are surrounded by trees and other beautiful landscapes. Maintenance is friendly, quick and I trust them to be in my place when I am not. The office is courteous and very helpful (they also love to spoil your pups with treats anytime they see them!) I’m very excited to renew my lease for the fourth time since moving to the area. You won’t find the charm and seclusion in any other complex in Foley.

I am beyond impressed with my experience living in the South Pointe Apartment Home community! The ladies in the office go above and beyond in making sure tenants are comfortable and satisfied with their homes. The genuine care and understanding of the staff is something I have never experienced while living in previous apartments. Not to mention the exceptionally well-kept property; from the luscious green grass and the beautiful trees that create the perfect amount of sunshine and shade. The community amenities are spectacular as well; the olympic size saltwater pool, the grassy green fenced in dog park, multiple sidewalks, the well-kept fitness center and even a community garden. To top it off, all the neighbors I have met have been extremely friendly and kind, which is just icing on the cake. South Pointe Apartments stand apart from other apartments in the area; from the beautiful landscape and calm serenity, to the superb amenities and the friendly, caring staff always willing to help. I recommend South Pointe Apartments to anyone looking for a place that they can truly call home.

How To Beat The Heat This Summer At South Pointe

How To Beat The Heat This Summer At South Pointe

South Pointe Apartments and Homes is located in the heart of the beautiful city of Foley, Alabama. Foley, along with many other cities along the Gulf Coast, experiences a substantial amount of heat throughout the year. The heat can reach temperatures around 100 degrees almost daily during the summer months. 

Luckily, South Pointe Apartments and Homes has compiled a list of things to do this summer to beat the heat!

Enjoy Our Community Pool 

South Pointe Apartments and Homes feature an incredible Olympic-sized, saltwater pool for all of our residents to enjoy. We understand that comfort sometimes includes having access to a pool for you to take advantage of when you have the opportunity to! Our wonderful management takes pride in keeping the community pool in tip-top shape with regular maintenance and cleaning. We even had a brand new pool liner installed earlier this year! 

Visit Our Local Beaches 

Being located in Foley, Alabama, we are fortunate enough to be only minutes away from our beautiful Alabama beaches. The white-sandy shores attract tourists and locals alike every year to enjoy all it has to offer. Gulf Shores and Orange Beach are sister cities with many ways for you to enjoy the beach. They offer public and private beaches, along with public and private parking for you to choose from to create a beach day to remember!

Our Fitness Center at South Pointe Apartments and Homes is a great way to break a sweat without the pressing heat on your shoulders. It features many wonderful options for you to choose from including free weights, workout machines, a Peloton and more! You don’t have to wait until a certain time to utilize this amenity because it’s open 24 hours a day and seven days a week to accommodate our residents’ needs. 

Relax Under Our Community Pavillions 

Our Community Pavillions are a hit with our residents! Not only is it a convenient place to relax during any season, but they also feature grills, a kitchen and chairs to help unwind. Grab some friends or loved ones and have a cookout, or bring your favorite book to read and enjoy the beautiful atmosphere of the community. The possibilities are endless! 

Enjoy Local Restaurants 

Being located in the South along the Gulf Coast means there are a plethora of restaurants with delicious, local seafood along with many other varieties of food to be enjoyed. Enjoy local restaurants in Foley like Wolf Bay Restaurant, Local and Company Food+Drink, Fish River Grill and many more! There’s something for everyone! 

Experience Water Activities On The Gulf 

It’s no secret that our beautiful Gulf Coast waters are filled with water activities for any age. Take a day to experience all of the marvelous things you can do along the water. Charter fishing is a

popular activity along with renting jet skis and even parasailing! Dolphin and sunset cruises emphasize the magnificent environment that surrounds our Gulf waters and cities! 

South Pointe Apartments and Homes is conveniently located just off Highway 59, a few blocks from downtown Foley. The Gulf Coast’s most pristine beaches are a short drive away, and the nationally known Tanger Outlet Mall is just around the corner. Our one and two-bedroom apartment homes and three-bedroom rental houses provide a quiet community that blends the serenity of the country with modern conveniences — making this one of the most charming places to live in Baldwin County.

Poolside Safety (In an Apartment Community)

Poolside Safety (In an Apartment Community)

The sun is shining, it’s getting warmer out and that can only mean one thing – It’s pool season! While we love a dip in our Olympic size saltwater pool here at South Pointe Apartments and Homes, we understand that there are safety concerns involved. Here are our tips to have a safe and fun-filled time at the pool.

Adhere to All Posted Rules 

Our amenities are part of the reason why our residents love living in the South Pointe community, and we have rules for use of them to ensure everyone has a fun, safe time. Take note of any posted pool rules, such as if there are specific times you can use the pool and any etiquette you need to abide by. 

Watch Out for Children 

School is about to be out for the summer, so be mindful of children who are using the pool. If you bring children to the pool, stay close to them at all times, even if they are strong swimmers. Along with this, ensure that they don’t run around the pool deck as these areas slippery and they can fall and injure themselves. 

Keep an Eye on Weather 

Weather in the south is finicky – in the blink of an eye, a bright, sunny day can quickly be replaced by an afternoon thunderstorm. Be sure to pay attention to the weather conditions while swimming and leave the pool immediately if you hear or see thunder or lightning. 

Regularly Apply Sunblock 

Summertime in Alabama is notoriously hot. With temperatures rising well above 90°F, it’s important to apply sunscreen before swimming to prevent damaging sunburns. SPF 35 is the minimum coverage that will protect you from the sun, and it is important to reapply every few hours to fully protect your skin. 

Bring a First-Aid Kit 

Stock up your first-aid kit with bandaids for skinned knees and medicine for bee stings, along with any extra supplies you may need. Bring it with you to the pool in case of emergencies. Also be sure to bring your phone with you to the pool in case you need to call for help. Our South Pointe emergency phone is located near the exterior pool bathroom in the case of an emergency. Keep it away from the water or in a waterproof case or container. Be sure to pack a water bottle as well to prevent dehydration. 

Dress Appropriately

Beads and other small buttons on bathing suits can fall off and get caught in the filters. They also present a choking hazard for small children, so be mindful of this when picking out your swimsuit. Don’t wear any jewelry that can get stuck in the vents, and be sure to wear flip-flops or other shoes to protect your feet. 

Be Mindful of the Space 

We all want to enjoy the pool, so be mindful of others when swimming. Keep your area clean, especially since people can trip on the clutter that gets blown around in the wind, and don’t play loud music that can bother others. The pool is a shared space and we all want to have a fun, relaxing time while using it. 

Enjoy the warm weather this summer at South Pointe Apartments and Homes. We value our residents and offer fun amenities such as pools, ping pong tables and a sand volleyball court for your enjoyment. We are located in a prime location at 679 East Michigan Ave. in Foley, Alabama. To schedule a tour of our community give us a call at (251) 971-3800 or visit our website www.southpointeapartmentsandhomes.com.

Ways You Can Support Local Businesses In Our Area

Ways you can support local businesses in our area

Finding ways to support local businesses has always been an important part of a growing community, especially now more than ever. Our local businesses make up the fabric of our communities, thus developing the livelihood of those who work, play and live in and around them. There are many ways to support local businesses in our area, and all it takes is a little effort on our part to help make a big difference!

Shop Local 

Doing this is easier than you might think! There are plenty of local businesses with storefronts in Baldwin County that would love to have you walk through their doors. Coffee shops, clothing stores, restaurants… You name it! Those sales are crucial to not only the business owners and their businesses, but also to our local economy. Even if you’re just stopping by to check the place out, we’re sure those businesses appreciate it! 

Generosity 

A small donation towards a local business or tip goes a long way. Consider going the extra mile by doing the “Tip The Bill” challenge, or even making a small donation towards business continuity for a local business. No matter the amount, these businesses can benefit from your gracious generosity towards their vision and services! 

Shop Now for Later 

Shop with local businesses now to help continue constant cash flow. Purchase a gift for a loved one’s birthday next month, or purchase items ahead of time before you may need them. Not only does this keep constant funds flowing through local businesses, but you’re helping create supply and demand for these business owners to keep doing more with their business for their community. 

Buy Gift Cards 

Everyone loves gift cards! You may not use a gift card right away, but revenue from this can help excel businesses forward. Consider purchasing a gift card or certificate for your next upcoming service or for a friend. This also makes you a customer later when you’re able to use it! 

Support Their Online Efforts 

Local businesses often have a brick and mortar location as well as an online hub for you to access from anywhere at any time. Don’t forget about these wonderful avenues! Purchase your items online from their online stores or websites to boost online sales. Maybe even engage with posts on their social media or post your recent purchase to show your friends and loved ones how awesome these local businesses are. The possibilities to help local businesses are endless when it comes to online efforts! 

Let’s join together to be there for local businesses in our area. Our efforts can make a difference in the lives of business owners, their employees and our community. South Pointe Apartments

and Homes strives to always be community forward in our local community and in our apartments and homes. To schedule a tour today, call (251) 971-3800 or visit our website www.southpointeapartmentsandhomes.com.

5 Ways To Get To Know Your Neighbors In Your Community

5 Ways To Get To Know Your Neighbors In Your Community

Apartment living comes with endless benefits. One of those benefits is having a built-in community right outside your door. There’s always the question of how you can make a good first impression to not only be a respectful neighbor, but a friendly one. However, at times it can be daunting to meet new people. That’s why we’ve compiled a list of five ways to get to know your neighbors in your community.

Use your community’s common areas

One incredible benefit of apartment living is the opportunity to have convenient, on-site amenities right outside your door. This means common areas are not only easier to get to, but easier to find and connect with your neighbors. Utilize the pool area to lounge, hang out and get to know residents who also use that area in their free time. Pavilions are another great area to get to know who you live next to. Everyone loves food! Grill a meal outdoors and share with others for a great way to connect with one another. Your community’s fitness center and pet park are awesome places to find neighbors who share the same interests and hobbies as you. The opportunities in your community are endless!

Random acts of kindness

Kindness goes a long way, especially now more than ever! Random acts of kindness is an incredible way to make a great positive impression. Not only is this something we should all do, but showing your neighbors you care about them can truly instill a sense of true community. Try leaving a kind note on someone’s door, complimenting your neighbor on their outdoor decorations or even making and bringing dinner to a resident in another building. The great thing about showing kindness to those around you is it usually is an action that continues to give. One act of kindness can encourage others to do the same for others!

Deliver baked goods to a neighbor

Cookies are the go-to welcome wagon for a great reason! Baked goods are not only tasty but can easily bring a smile to your neighbor’s face knowing you thought about them! Explain this gesture is to be a friendly neighbor and that’s sure to spark up a genuine conversation and friendship. Whether it’s cookies, homemade bread or brownies, your neighbors are sure to love the kind gesture! Just be sure to let your neighbors know what’s inside the goods in case of allergies.

Help a neighbor move in

We all know that moving can be a pain oftentimes. When moving into a new home in a new place, the move can be tiresome and the transition can extend overtime. Why not lend a helping hand to a neighbor in need? Even just 15 to 30 minutes can be a huge help, and it’s also a great opportunity to introduce yourself. Offering to help can even put your neighbors at ease knowing they have a caring community they’re surrounded by in their new home. These gestures leave lasting impressions and opportunities for future conversations. Who knows, there might come a day you may need help and that same neighbor is ready to lend a hand. When you live in an apartment home, community is always at the core!

Engage in conversation

Saying hello may be a small gesture, but it lets people know you’re friendly and approachable. Those are the characteristics every resident hopes to have in their neighbors! Engaging in conversation may lead you to find out you may have more things in common than you originally thought, or share the same interests! This is a great way to give yourself the opportunity to gain a new perspective or a new friend!

Getting to know your neighbors can benefit you in so many ways and can leave you feeling fulfilled and happy with your new neighbors and home.

What Our Residents Have To Say

My boyfriend and I applied for a South Pointe home in the Summer of 2020. Turns out, someone applied for the same house about 30 minutes ahead of us! Sarah and the office staff were very helpful, and processed our application and put it down on the next available house. Me and my boyfriend LOVE the house we live in. We have lived here since August, and have not had a single issue. The houses and neighborhood are both really quiet and kept so clean! I love not having to cut my own grass! They are also pet friendly (which is hard to find). They even plan fun and safe events for neighbors to come together (while practicing social distancing), and enjoy the neighborhood. I can’t wait for it to warm back up so we can enjoy the pool and other great things offered while living here. We plan to stay here for quite some time!

I promised my roommate if we made it through hurricane Sally and got everything back to normal, I’d 5-star this place. The constant updates when there was news, the free meals, and quick clean up . Really this would have been a nightmare without this team. I will never forget their kindness.

Moved to Foley about 7 months ago and decided to lease a house at South Point Apartments & Homes. My husband and I couldn’t be happier with our choice. The office staff and maintenance crew are excellent! The location is WONDERFUL! Far enough from the beach to escape that traffic yet just a 15 – 20 minute drive when the ocean ” calls “.After owning for most of our life it’s wonderful to not have any upkeep or yard maintenance as it’s all provided. The saltwater pool, nice clubhouse, dog park and wooded areas all provide nice amenities that are well cared for.

I have lived here at South Pointe apartments for almost 3 years. It is the best community and apartment complex I have ever lived in. Not only is it quiet, you are surrounded by trees and other beautiful landscapes. Maintenance is friendly, quick and I trust them to be in my place when I am not. The office is courteous and very helpful (they also love to spoil your pups with treats anytime they see them!) I’m very excited to renew my lease for the fourth time since moving to the area. You won’t find the charm and seclusion in any other complex in Foley.

I am beyond impressed with my experience living in the South Pointe Apartment Home community! The ladies in the office go above and beyond in making sure tenants are comfortable and satisfied with their homes. The genuine care and understanding of the staff is something I have never experienced while living in previous apartments. Not to mention the exceptionally well-kept property; from the luscious green grass and the beautiful trees that create the perfect amount of sunshine and shade. The community amenities are spectacular as well; the olympic size saltwater pool, the grassy green fenced in dog park, multiple sidewalks, the well-kept fitness center and even a community garden. To top it off, all the neighbors I have met have been extremely friendly and kind, which is just icing on the cake. South Pointe Apartments stand apart from other apartments in the area; from the beautiful landscape and calm serenity, to the superb amenities and the friendly, caring staff always willing to help. I recommend South Pointe Apartments to anyone looking for a place that they can truly call home.
