Caring for AirBnB Outdoor Spaces: Patio, Balcony, and Garden Cleaning

Outdoor spaces such as terraces, balconies and gardens are often popular retreats for guests seeking fresh air and relaxation. Maintaining these areas with regular cleaning not only improves the overall guest experience, but also showcases the charm of your property. Here are key tips for keeping your AirBnB outdoor spaces pristine:

1. Sweep and clean regularly: Sweep surfaces regularly to remove leaves, debris and dirt. Remove cobwebs and dust outdoor furniture and decor.

2. Clean furniture and cushions: Wipe down outdoor furniture, cushions and pillows to remove dust and stains. Consider using weather-resistant cushions that are easy to clean.

3. Wash hard surfaces: Scrub hard surfaces such as tiles, decks and concrete with a mild cleaning solution to remove dirt and grime.

4. Clean barbecues and cooking areas: If you have a barbecue or cooking area, clean it thoroughly after each use to prevent grease build-up. Regular cleaning will ensure a safe and hygienic area for guests.

5. Maintain plants and greenery: Water and maintain plants, flowers and shrubs regularly to keep the outdoor area looking vibrant. Cut back any overgrowth to prevent a messy appearance.

6. Treat rust and stains: Inspect metal furniture and hardware for rust. Remove rust and treat any stains to maintain a clean and attractive appearance.

7. Check for pests: Check outdoor areas regularly for signs of pests. Use natural repellents to prevent infestations.

8. Refresh decor: Update outdoor decor with seasonal items to enhance the ambience and charm of the space.

9. Pressure wash: Consider pressure washing hard surfaces regularly to remove stubborn dirt, algae and mould.

10. Pay attention to detail: Clean and polish doorknobs, light fixtures and other small details to create a cohesive and welcoming outdoor atmosphere.

11. Garden beds and planters: Remove weeds and dead plants from flower beds and planters. Prune and maintain plants regularly to keep the area looking vibrant.

12. Outdoor carpets and mats: Clean and shake out outdoor carpets and mats regularly to prevent dirt build-up. Consider washable options for ease of care.

13. Provide cleaning supplies: Consider providing guests with basic outdoor cleaning supplies such as a broom, dustpan and outdoor-friendly cleaning spray.

14. Consider safety: Ensure outdoor areas are well lit and safe for guests, especially during evening hours.

15. Seasonal maintenance: Adapt your outdoor cleaning routine to seasonal changes. Prepare for winter by storing outdoor furniture and protecting plants from the cold.

A well-maintained outdoor space adds to the overall appeal of your AirBnB property and offers guests a place to relax. By taking the time to clean and maintain these areas, you can create a welcoming environment that guests will remember and appreciate. Whether it’s a cosy balcony, spacious patio or charming garden, an outdoor oasis can make a big difference to the positive experiences your AirBnB offers.
