How to make your Airbnb rental the most popular: expert advice
Many people offer their homes for rent through the popular Airbnb service. At the same time, the owners want to, too. They want their home to get a lot of positive reviews to attract other customers.
Diane Cruz, an experienced cleaning expert, spoke about how to ensure that your Airbnb listing is among the top ones. According to her, following the unwritten rules should lead to success, according to an article by Insider.
In a conversation with the publication, she shared three simple tips to help Airbnb hosts improve their ratings. According to her, the vast majority of Airbnb hosts provide a great travel experience for guests, but some "hosts who violate cleaning standards may receive warnings, suspensions, and, in some cases, account termination."
Among the top tips from the cleaning expert is to always leave at least three bottles of shampoo, conditioner, and body wash in the bathrooms of the house for guests so that they don't have to worry about bringing their own. This will show guests that the hosts care about their stay in the house.
Also, when it comes to basic necessities like toilet paper, it's better to have an adequate supply so you don't run out unexpectedly. She said that she always leaves enough toilet paper, paper towels, trash bags, soap, and laundry detergent for the entire duration of a guest's stay.
In addition, her advice is not to skimp on the cleaning lady. She says that guests value cleanliness, and one way to ensure this is to hire a thorough cleaning team. According to her, the property should leave a good impression, so it's unacceptable to have dirty or smelly sheets, a dirty or grimy shower, or a dirty floor under the bed.
Cruz says that in order to avoid a messy home, you need to spend money on cleaners who will pay attention to the little things. She also advises to keep a closet filled with necessary things. So, the easiest way to do a quick and thorough cleaning is to keep a closet full of linens so that cleaners can quickly make the bed with clean sheets without waiting for laundry and change towels.
