The Ultimate Guide to AirBnB Cleaning Standards

The Ultimate Guide to AirBnB Cleaning Standards

Maintaining basic cleaning standards is critical for every AirBnB host to ensure a consistently exceptional guest experience. Following these standards not only meets guest expectations, but also lays the groundwork for positive reviews, repeat bookings, and a stellar reputation as a host.

1. Thoroughness: Clean every corner, surface and item in your property. Nothing should be overlooked, from common areas to hidden nooks and crannies.

2. Consistency: Create a consistent cleaning routine for every turnover, ensuring that every guest walks into a spotless space.

3. High-Touch Surfaces: Pay special attention to high-touch surfaces such as doorknobs, light switches, remote controls and faucets. Disinfect these areas regularly to promote guest safety.

4. Fresh Linens: Always provide freshly laundered and freshly made beds. Clean linens and towels contribute greatly to guest comfort.

5. Well stocked amenities: Replenish toiletries, tissues, toilet paper and other consumables before each guest arrives.

6. No lingering odours: Ensure there are no lingering odours, especially from cooking, pets or cleaning products. A pleasant aroma enhances the overall guest experience.

7. Professional equipment: Maintain equipment in excellent condition, ensuring it is clean, in working order and ready for guest use.

8. Spotless Bathrooms: Bathrooms should be spotless and sanitised. Clean showers, baths, sinks and toilets thoroughly.

9. Dust-free zones: Dust all surfaces regularly, including furniture, decorations and hard-to-reach areas.

10. Floor Care: Thoroughly vacuum, sweep and mop floors. This not only improves cleanliness but also prevents wear and tear.

11. Clear communication: Communicate your cleaning standards to guests through house rules or manuals. Set expectations and encourage them to maintain the cleanliness of the property during their stay.

12. Feedback and improvement: Continually seek guest feedback and reviews to identify areas for improvement. This will help you refine your cleaning standards over time.

By adhering to these basic cleaning standards, you will create an environment where guests feel valued, comfortable and delighted. Going above and beyond to maintain a first-class guest experience not only benefits your current guests, but also establishes your property as a sought-after destination within the AirBnB community.
