Your Questions About Studio Apt

Mandy asks…

is baking soda the best litter box deodorizer? his box is inside a big covered a studio apt.?

his box is not in a separate room. but its covered in those big plastic litter box covers. i put it in a corner so that corner has stagnant air,

Administrator answers:

Baking soda is a great deoderizer – you can mix some in with the litter and keep an open box or container of it in that area to absorb odor. I also really recommend the clumping litter (like Fresh Step or Scoop Away) because it kind of absorbs everything.

We also use a citrus spray to freshen the air after our cat has just “gone” and the litter hasn’t had a chance to soak it in yet. Our most honest friends have told us that our house doesn’t smell like cat, so it seems to work pretty well!

Mark asks…

Utility bills for 500 sq ft studio apt?

What would the cost of electric and heat/cooking gas be for a 500 sq ft. studio apartment in PA? Note: The avg temp here in winter is around 30-35 and summer 85-95. The cost of utilities will make all the difference in my choice for an apartment, so your help would be appreciated! Thanks!

Administrator answers:

Sorry, however the answer is not something that can be pulled out of a hat. You need to consider what kind of appliances, Stove, refrigerator, etc. And the monthly power usage for each. Is the apt heated by gas or electric? How energy efficient the air conditioner and heater are and how energy efficient the apt is,ie: how much insulation in the walls, floor and ceiling?

Also the amount of time you will be there and how much cooking, TV watching, computer surfing, and laundry you do will also be a considering factor.

Probably the easiest way to discover the usage is to talk to the neighbors. Be nosy ask pertinent questions. Be aware their usage might differ from yours based on the answers to the personal usage questions above. Good luck!

Sandra asks…

What are the rents for a small 1bed room flat / Studio Apt. in Fujairah , UAE.?

What is the minimum salary to survive there ? thanks

Administrator answers:


renting a studio in Fujairah can vary greatly, rents are starting at around 25000 AED per year up to 25000 AED per month. Initially, you should stay at a serviced appartment (your employer might help you there) and scout the properties yourself as the quality differences will amaze you…

I would say that for a decent life you would need something around 6000 AED per month, assuming that you are single.

Don’t hesitate to email or IM me should you require further assistance.
