Reviews are very important for Airbnb hosts. As a host, your success is measured by your reviews. It takes just one negative review to hurt your business for an extended period. Word of a lousy vacation due to a poor experience at an Airbnb has the potential to reach an international audience.
Becoming a successful Airbnb host isn’t only about getting bookings — it’s about what happens after your guests show up. So, how can you keep even the most demanding guests happy? Exceptional hospitality involves many factors, one of the most vital is having a clean and tidy space. If you want to keep guests happy, you should maintain a clean and tidy rental.
Airbnb and other vacation rental hosts are held to high standards of quality and service. Guests expect the same level of cleanliness that they would find when staying at a hotel or resort. Keeping a clean rental will not only make guests feel more comfortable, but it will also encourage them to take better care of the space, as well.
So, how can you get the same level of cleanliness as a hotel? Hotels thoroughly clean rooms after each and every guest. The problem is that scrubbing the bathroom, mopping the floors, and meticulously cleaning linens can be both physically and mentally draining. It can be difficult to tackle cleaning especially if you are already working full-time elsewhere.
It is easier than you might think to keep your Airbnb rental clean without draining your time. One of the best ways is to hire a professional company to come in and clean between guest stays. A cleaning service can take care of things like:
- Vacuuming rugs and carpets
- Dusting the furniture, picture frames and doorways
- Cleaning the refrigerator, stovetop and kitchen counter
- Making the beds
- Taking out the trash
- Cleaning the shower or bathtub, toilet and sink
- Doing dishes
Hiring a professional cleaning company will help your guests feel comfortable during their stay. It will also take a load off of your shoulders and leave you with more time to enjoy life.
