Welcoming the Rain: Seasonal Rainy-Day Cleaning Strategies for Airbnb Hosts

As the seasons change and rain graces your Airbnb property, it’s the perfect opportunity to adopt a rainy-day cleaning routine that will ensure your space remains cosy, inviting and ready to impress guests. Here are some strategies to help you make the most of those rainy days:

1. Deep clean entrances: Guests bring in more dirt and moisture when it rains. Focus on entrances, mats and carpets to prevent mud and water from spreading throughout your property.

2. Inspect on a rainy day: Use the rain as a natural test for any leaks or problems in your property. Check for leaks around windows, ceilings and doors and deal with any problems immediately.

3. Make the space cosy: Make your Airbnb feel like a warm retreat by providing cosy blankets, fluffy pillows and comfortable seating. Consider adding a few extra touches like scented candles for a soothing atmosphere.

4. Fresh air and ventilation: Rainy weather often means less natural ventilation. Open windows briefly between showers to bring in fresh air and prevent mustiness.

5. Odour control: Damp conditions can sometimes lead to musty odours. Combat this by using air purifiers and ensuring proper ventilation to keep your property smelling fresh.

6. Extra linen and towels: Rainy weather can cause guests to use more towels or linen. Make sure you have an adequate supply of these essentials.

7. Indoor activities: Rainy days may limit guests’ outdoor activities. Provide indoor entertainment such as board games, books or streaming services to keep them occupied.

8. Quick clean-up: Place umbrella stands or hooks near the entrance to encourage guests to leave wet umbrellas and rain gear there, preventing drips and puddles inside.

9. Patio and balcony maintenance: Even if outdoor spaces are used less during rainy weather, they should be regularly inspected and cleaned to prevent water accumulation and potential damage.

10. Rain gear station: Provide a designated area with rain gear, including umbrellas and raincoats, for guests to use during their stay.

11. Carpet and upholstery care: With increased humidity, carpets and upholstery may be more susceptible to mould or mildew. Vacuum regularly and consider using a dehumidifier if necessary.

12. Rainy day checklists: Develop rainy day checklists for your cleaning routine, focusing on areas prone to dampness or dirt tracked in from outside.

13. Communication: Communicate with guests about rainy day amenities and activities in your area so they can enjoy their stay regardless of the weather.

14. Rain-themed decor: Embrace the rain by adding rain-themed décor such as artwork, cushions or accessories to enhance the welcoming atmosphere.

By embracing the rainy weather and adapting your cleaning and hosting approach accordingly, you’ll ensure your Airbnb remains a comfortable haven for guests, rain or shine.
