Getting Your Florida Apartment Summer-Ready
Keeping cool in Florida’s sizzling summers requires an ice cold drink, a refreshing pool, and a gameplan on how to prep your apartment ready for the coming months. Create your own summertime oasis with Forest Properties as we highlight 5 good-to-know tips on how to beat the Florida heat!
Give Your Apartment a Deep Clean
Even though it may feel like you just finished spring cleaning, giving your Ranch Lake home a quick scrub in the beginning of summer will make your space feel refreshed, bright, and ready for the new season. Most of the tips featured in our spring cleaning guide are interchangeable from season to season, and a few of our favorite tips include:
- Wash your curtains
- Clean blinds with a damp cloth
- Dust off shelves, vents, and other high surfaces
- Properly clean tile and wood floors
By getting the scrubbing done now, you’ll be able to relax in your squeaky clean apartment before the Florida heat hits! It’s also good to know that there are plenty of beachfront restaurants in Sarasota to treat yourself after a day of cleaning.

Test Run Your Air Conditioner
Naturally, making sure your air conditioning unit properly works is an important part of getting your apartment summer ready. Simply turn on your unit and make sure cool air is blowing throughout your apartment. If anything seems a bit off, be sure to contact your apartment maintenance team right away.
Tenant Tip: The earlier you check your AC, the better. You don’t want to wait until it’s 100 degrees out and you really need coolness to find out your AC needs a tune-up!
Freshen Up Your Outdoor Space
If your apartment at The Lexington in Sarasota features a lanai or patio, give your outdoor space a facelift by adding some summer-inspired accessories. An outdoor bench or small bistro set makes for the perfect place to sip morning coffee, and some colorful outdoor throw pillows will cozy up the space. Don’t forget to add string lights, an all-weather rug, and a few small plants for extra vibrancy.
