Same day Airbnb Cleans – In order to make your Airbnb successful make sure you that you can provide for a same day Airbnb cleaning service. So with most of our Serviced accommodation hosts that means providing cleaning in between the hours of check out and check in 11am-3pm. If your having to close a property for 24 hours after each guest stays with your Airbnb that is going to cost you financially.
Hotel Pressed Linen –Airbnb guests expect clean pressed linen like that in a hotel. When was the last time you stayed at a hotel with patterned bedspreads that had more wrinkles then your grandparents? Please don’t be fooled into being a typical Airbnb host starting off and buying 4 sets of designed and coloured linen from IKEA. Yes it makes your initial marketing photos stand out but have you tried to wash and iron a set and replace it on the beds? The result is nothing like the initial photoshoot you took. After 4 washes, the coloured linen is drained and it really isn’t going to last the distance of your Airbnb guests expectations and your photos. If you need assistance we can provide Airbnb rental pressed white linen just like in a hotel and every guest will experience the same as your photos suggest.
Cleaning and Basic Supplies – This is easy to get right at the start when you start off hosting your Airbnb in Edinburgh. Soap – Check, Shampoo – Check, Toilet paper – check, Dishwasher tablets – check, washing tablets – check, coffee sachets – check, etc. Getting consistency for every guest is important and its similar to the linen above. I would certainly look into purchasing in bulk and getting a press or storage area with a lock in your Airbnb and stocking your Airbnb property after each clean. Did you ever try going to the shops each time when you’re rushing to clean in your turn around window on a busy weekend day! It’s a nightmare and you certainly don’t need the stress
Correct Cleaning Equipment – You have a good cleaning equipment at home to clean right? A decent vacuum cleaner possibly a Dyson, excellent bucket, squeezer and fresh mop heads at home right? You need to have the same in your Airbnb in Edinburgh. Normally when we visit a new Airbnb cleaning in Edinburgh the host often has poor cleaning equipment on site. This is the fastest way to low stars in your cleaning review from your guests. Make sure to equip your Airbnb in Edinburgh with a good vacuum cleaner of at least a Henry hoover standard, Mop bucket and heads you can wash and the best of cleaning products. This is a serviced accommodation and guests expect the best that you can provide similar to that of a hotel.
Don’t rush it and try to do it to quick – When we quote for new Airbnb cleaning services in Edinburgh with hosts the first thing a host often tell me is how quickly they can turn the property around in. I get it that it’s a way of trying to get a low cleaning price, however some hosts really do a very quick turnaround. PLEASE do not cut corners please, each wardrobe needs to be checked, each fridge drawer, each bedside locker, move the sofa cushions, behind each door, Hot press etc. OK I hope I’m creating an image in your hear here. Cutting to many corners and trying to get out the door to quickly and you will quickly have Airbnb Support on looking to see how you are going to compensate your guest for your poor cleaning and you’re on your way to a 1 star review.
I hope I helped create a picture for you and have not scared you too much.
