Airbnb hosting is a great way to supplement your annual housing income. It’s a great way to meet new people and earn some money on the side. By hosting with Airbnb you are able to, a shared space, and even entire apartment.
But hosting with Airbnb isn’t as easy as it seems. Vacation hosts are often held to very high standards. Usually higher than a hotel. When it comes to vacation hosting, is the number one determining factor in succeeding.
When, make sure they:
1. Make All The Beds
When looking for an Airbnb cleaning service you don’t want a basic cleaning service. In other words, you want more than just your bathrooms, hallways, and countertops clean. You also want someone to make all of the beds with fresh linens.
2. Put Away The Dishes
If you are renting out a private or shared room you may not need a cleaning service to wash and put away the dishes for you (although it wouldn’t hurt). But if you are renting out a studio or entire apartment this option should be apart of the package. Some host ask their guest to ensure that the dishes are taken care of before leaving the premises. While some hosts leave it to the cleaning company.
3. Check Inventory
Running a busy vacation rental can get hectic. So hectic in fact, you might forget that you needed to stock up on toilet paper before your next guest arrives. Ask your cleaner to take inventory and leave you a note so that you know what needs to be restocked after each guest departs.
Some cleaning services will take care of the inventory for you for an extra fee. It doesn’t hurt to check with them. Provided that you are willing to use their products instead of products you prefer.
4. Provide Easy & Convenient Service
As a rental host, you’ve got enough on your plate. You probably have a full-time job, a house of your own to worry about, and now tenants to clean up after. The last thing you want to do in your spare time is drive to your cleaning companies headquarters to submit your payment.
