Super Ways to Clean Your Airbnb So You Can Be a Super Host

Have you experienced that icky feeling when you walk into a motel room, and it's clear that the maid service didn't do an excellent job? Airbnb has much higher cleaning standards. So every time a new guest checks in, they should feel like they're the first person to ever stay on your property. 

Leaving evidence of the previous guest will result in a negative review or appeasement (discount). So if you want to become an Airbnb super host and have your Airbnb calendar booked for the entire year or season, you'll need to know how to clean your property. This post will give you the confidence, tools, and checklists you need to clean your, plus some extra tips on improving cleaning efficiency.

Super Way 1: Prioritize the Pre-Inspection

Accidental or not, guests can damage interiors, so it's essential to do a pre-inspection walk-through of your property to look for items left behind and any damage. You’ll need to take photos of damaged areas to qualify for Airbnb’s Host Guarantee.

Super Way 2: Look at the Linens

A time-consuming aspect of cleaning is changing the linens. That's why it should be one of the top priorities in your Airbnb Cleaning Checklist. You should have three sets of linens for each property; one active set, one replacement set, and one backup set for emergencies.

Here's what you need to do:

  • Remove pillowcases, flat sheets, fitted sheets, and the duvet cover from all beds.
  • Start washing immediately so it can run while you're cleaning.
  • Inspect replacement linens for stains.
  • Remake beds with your replacement linens.
  • Place two sets of towels at the foot of each bed. Each group should include two bath towels, one hand towel, and one washcloth.

To avoid these hassles, use a duvet cover for all your comforters. They're much easier to wash and replace if damaged or stained.

Super Way 3: Fix the Bedrooms

Now that you’ve tidied up the bed, it's time to clean the rest of the bedroom. Here are the areas of note:

  • Ceiling fan. 
  • All horizontal surfaces. 
  • Any surfaces that needed wet wipes.
  • High-touch areas. 
  • Floors.
  • Under the bed.

To ensure thorough cleaning, sweep, dust, and vacuum (in that order) before taking a wet mop or towel and wiping them.

Super Way 4: Move on to the Bathrooms

After inspecting their sheets, you can ensure that your guests will check the drains for hair. If they find even one, they'll be demanding a refund and a masseuse. There needs to be no evidence that anyone has used the bathroom before, meaning:

  • Dusting the intake vent.
  • Spraying cleaner in the tub/shower and letting it soak.
  • Filling the toilet bowl with a cleaner and let it soak.
  • Wiping down all toilet surfaces.
  • Scrubbing the toilet bowl and flushing.
  • Rinsing out the shower and tub.
  • Organizing soaps and shampoos (if provided).
  • Cleaning the sink and vanity.
  • Sanitizing handles and other high-touch areas.
  • Windexing and polishing all mirrors.
  • Removing trash and replacing trash liners.
  • Vacuuming floors and mopping floors.
