7 Airbnb Cleaning Tips

In my experience as an Airbnb host, one of the most important aspects is cleaning.

Sure, having swanky furnishings is important, and creating a great listing will drive more bookings, but having an Airbnb that does not meet guest’s expectations on cleanliness can quickly torpedo your Airbnb business.

You want to keep the cleaning process as systematic as possible. This way you do not have to worry as much about forgetting a spot.

1. Have a Checklist

2. Use A Vacuum
