Airbnb guests expect an immaculate space. Keeping some basic cleaning supplies on hand will make it more convenient for hosts to prepare their Airbnb property for the next guest.
Guests will want to do basic cleanup like washing dishes and wiping up spills; they may even be inspired to vacuum. If you don’t lock up your broom closet, make sure that the products inside are environmentally friendly and non-toxic. If you’ve promoted your place as child-friendly, reinforce that claim by childproofing your property and storing cleaning chemicals safely out of reach of children.
Having cleaning equipment and supplies on-site means you won’t have to haul them from one property to the next, making the cleanup process easier. Here are five cleaning products Airbnb hosts should keep on-site.
If the view is a big draw for your Airbnb, maintaining clean windows is a priority. Keeping non-toxic glass cleaner handy will reduce the time it takes to tidy up all of your windows, mirrors, and glass-topped tables.
Most people are wary of surfaces and the germs they hold. Keep a supply of disinfectant wipes available for cleaning countertops, doorknobs, light switches, and other frequently touched surfaces. Check each label for a list of infectious agents the wipes’ cleaning chemicals will destroy, and make sure the product you choose is EPA registered.
A polite note and a handy squeegee can enlist your guests’ assistance in keeping shower stalls clean and sparkling. Even if your guests elect to ignore this simple cleaning task, a squeegee will help you get a streak-free appearance for your glass-enclosed showers.
All-Purpose Green Cleaner
Many people have chemical sensitivities and want to know that you keep your property tidy with environmentally friendly products. Numerous green cleaners are multi-purpose and can be used on several different surface types. Always check the labeling to ensure you’re getting a product that lives up to the green name.
Laundry Detergent and Dish Soap
Your guests will appreciate having a supply of laundry detergent and dish soap on hand. And when it comes time for the after-checkout cleanup, you might find that guests missed some spots on glasses or plates or left dirty dishrags in the sink. You may need to run the dishwasher or do a quick load of laundry before your next guests arrive.
The cleaning products Airbnb hosts keep on-site will vary according to personal preference, size of the property, and specific needs of guests. Maintaining a basic supply of cleaning products will help hosts and guests have a better Airbnb experience.
