New and Improved Airbnb cleaning Checklist

Take a look at the Airbnb checklist that Hummingbird Cleaning services uses to ensure a efficient, fast and accurate cleaning every time. As a Airbnb Host, we understand and know you want to eliminate the stress and hassles of having customer complaints about cleanliness. We know that receiving the absolute best reviews will contribute to consistent revenue from you Airbnb. In case you’re offering guests basic lodgings to rest temporarily, or long term high end accommodations, cleanliness is the ultimately the most important to your guests.

Unquestionably, if your guest notice one small thing that hasn’t been cleaned properly, they are more likely to perceive the whole place as unkempt. That’s a frustrating experience if you’ve worked hard to get the place clean. It’s important to prepare for these situations and present to your guests a favorable clean each time, but without spending a huge amount of time doing so.

We have taken the time to redecorate our Airbnb checklist to ensure your guests give you exceptional reviews on cleanliness, while making your reset as thorough and quick as possible.

“Wherever you go, no matter what the weather, always bring your own sunshine.” ~Hummingbird cleaning services

  • Tidy area and plump up cushions, straighten rugs, fix décor items, leave out guest information brochure, reset blinds and curtains

"Even if you have mastered your change/reset cleaning routine, a common mistake we see Airbnb hosts make is to neglect the ‘bigger picture’ presentation of their properties. Some tasks, such as cobwebbing, window cleaning and carpet steam cleaning may not need to be done every time, but they definitely can build up over time and take away from the presentation of your Airbnb. So, make a plan to vacuum out your window tracks, spot clean your walls and dust those blinds!"
