April 12, 2023
Quick Tips • Residential Cleaning

Whether you have an Airbnb or vacation home that you rent out, you need to know how to keep it clean to succeed. The cleanliness level of your rental will be the first thing your guests will notice upon arrival, leading to a good or bad review. Cleanliness, comfort, and amenities are the top three things that will shape your guests’ experiences. The best way to ensure your rental properties stay spotless between guests is by hiring a cleaning company like Quick & Clean. Keep reading to learn some of our cleaning tips for Airbnbs and vacation homes!

Enhanced Cleaning Protocols

Since the pandemic, vacation rental companies have introduced enhanced cleaning protocols. When cleaning and maintaining your rental property, be sure to abide by the host standards to avoid suspension or termination of your account. It’s also wise to provide quality cleaning supplies in your Airbnb or vacation home in case messes occur during your guests’ stay. The safety of your guests is the priority!

Start Fresh

After each guest leaves, inspect the property for lingering smells, such as smells from pet urine, smoking, or cooking. If you’re dealing with stubborn smells, consider investing in an Ozone machine and/or essential oil diffusers to keep your rentals smelling fresh. Give yourself plenty of time between guests to completely clean your property. Once you’ve cleaned, give your rental home a walkthrough as if you were a guest to ensure it’s up to par. Even just a few bad reviews can cause you to lose money.

Prepare for Sensitive Guests

Yes—your Airbnbs and vacation homes should smell fresh and clean without smelling like strong cleaning supplies. Some guests will have allergies and be extra sensitive to odors, so it’s a good idea to stick to hypoallergenic or natural cleaners, especially for laundry. Steer clear of aerosol or plug-in air fresheners that can cause headaches and other issues for many guests.
