Make your guests feel at home by ensuring your place looks and feels clean! This can make the difference between a good and bad review, and whether guests recommend your Airbnb property to others.
Here are a few easy tips on how to make your Airbnb property look and feel clean;
White Liens and Towels
When have you visited a hotel that didn’t provide hotel grade white liens and towels? White linens and towels give the impression of cleanliness. They may take a little more work when dirty, but it will make a big difference to the overall guest experience. Your guests want to crawl into a bed that looks crisp and fresh.
Declutter and Remove Personal Effects
Less is more when it comes to an Airbnb property. It is important to provide a space that allows your guests to enjoy your home. Make sure to include furniture that provides function to the room but consider removing furniture that doesn’t. You want guest to feel like they are “at home” and not in “your home” so removing personal effects will help with that.
Purge Old Stuff
We know that it is tempting to use old furniture and kitchen stuff from your own home and purchase new things for your house. Your guests want to feel at home and if the furniture is old and dated, the pots and pans are stained, and the dishes don’t match your guests won’t be happy. This could contribute to bad reviews. It is ok to use older furniture if it is in good shape, and fits with the décor but be careful and ensure it doesn’t look worn or well used.
It is important to take time every month to deep clean and tackle larger cleaning tasks that can build up over time. When you have a vacant night, consider doing some of the deep clean chores like wiping down the trim or walls, touching up the paint, cleaning high shelfs, wiping out the kitchen cabinets and drawers. All these things can appear clean but over time collect dust. Don’t risk a bad review and ensure to deep clean every month.
