If you use Airbnb or another rental service, you can make money by having people looking for a place to stay in the area stay at a property that you might own. For existing Airbnb hosts, however, cleaning the home for the next guests will always be a necessity, as guests don’t want to have to stay in a home that felt like it was occupied by another family just five minutes ago. Unhappy guests will lead to bad reviews, and this can affect who will want to rent your space in the future.
If you run a rental property and don’t wish to handle cleaning it all the time after guests have stayed in it, there are three things that you can do so that you have more time to yourself and your personal commitments.
Airbnb guests always expect hotel-quality service, even though they’re aware that you don’t have the housekeeping team that hotels are known to have. What you can do is hire a professional cleaning crew to clean the property after each time a guest stays there.
Professional cleaning services can do many important tasks, like vacuuming rugs and carpets, wiping countertops, making beds, cleaning bathrooms, and more. Everything needs to be cleaned and organized for your next guests, and cleaning services will see that no stone is left unturned.
You can hire a cleaning service before every time guests stay in the home, so you never have to panic, trying to find time to clean it all on your own. Leaving your property cluttered or dirty is something you won’t need to be concerned about.
Schedule a routine deep cleaning.
Even though cleaning after each booking of your rental property is important, these cleanings are only considered cosmetic. You home will look clean, no doubt about it, but it won’t be the cleanest that it ever could be without a deep cleaning scheduled every now and then. Deep cleanings are essential for commercial properties where hundreds of people visit each day, and the same can be said about dozens that stay at your property each year.
Schedule a deep cleaning from your professional cleaning services a few times per year. This will ensure that bacteria does not build up in your home and that every guest living in it will not pick up any germs.
Deep cleaning typically involve the shampooing of carpets, cleaning of cabinets, cleaning of appliances, among other advanced cleaning measures to ensure your place stays healthy to live in.
Supply toiletries for your property
You won’t have to worry about groceries, as guests are required to buy their own. Toiletries, however, are considered a part of the hospitality that you offer to guests, so disposable supplies like toilet paper, paper towels, and napkins are things that you should stock up on for your next series of guests. It can be really easy to forget about buying more toilet paper for a rental property, and if guests are left with very little, it can dampen their experience.
Your professional cleaning crew should let you know if you are running short on toiletries. This way, you can have some time to purchase new toiletries so that there are plenty for your property for the next few months.
