AirBnB Cleaning for Pet-Friendly Rentals: Managing Fur, Odours, and Allergens

AirBnB cleaning for pet-friendly rentals requires specific strategies to manage fur, odours and allergens to ensure a comfortable environment for both pet-owning and non-pet-owning guests.

Fur management: Vacuum all surfaces, including furniture and carpets, regularly to remove pet hair. Use lint rollers for upholstery and washable slipcovers that are easy to clean between guests. Microfiber cloths can help effectively trap pet hair.

Odour control: Use enzyme-based cleaners to neutralise pet odours, especially in areas frequented by pets. Wash pet bedding and accessories to prevent lingering odours. Air purifiers with HEPA filters can help keep the air fresh and odour-free.

Reduce allergens: Deep clean carpets and upholstery to minimise allergens. Wash and disinfect pet toys and accessories between visits. Consider using hypoallergenic cleaning products and maintain good ventilation.

Specialist cleaning products: Use pet-specific cleaning products designed to break down pet-related stains and odours to ensure a thorough clean that meets guest expectations.

Clear communication: Clearly communicate your pet-friendly policy to guests and set expectations for responsible pet ownership and cleanliness during their stay.

Additional cleaning fee: Consider implementing a reasonable pet cleaning fee to cover the additional cleaning required after a pet stay.

By implementing these strategies, you will provide a welcoming space for pet-owning guests while ensuring the satisfaction of guests who may have allergies or preferences for a fur- and odour-free environment. Balancing cleanliness and pet friendliness improves the overall guest experience in your rental property.
