Cleaning for Airbnb Guests


I love coming up with new ideas on how to travel cheaper. In the past, I always just tried to spend less money during a vacation or an adventure but now there is a way to earn money while on vacation to cover some of the costs of the trip … list your home on is an awesome alternative to traditional hotels. Homeowners can list their homes on the website and then travelers can stay at their homes often for a lower cost than nearby hotel rooms. I list my home on during all dates I plan to be away on vacation or for business.

In order to ensure you continue to have more guests in your home, you need to be sure the ones that lease from you have a pleasant experience and leave a nice review so you will want to prepare your home for Airbnb guests. Here is how to do it.


You should have fresh and clean sheets and bedspreads for each bed in the home. Your guests do not want to sleep on dirty bedding during their stay in your home. Be sure to have fresh hand towels and bath towels available in each bathroom as well.


Be sure to vacuum before your guests arrive. I also recommend going one step further and hiring a local carpet cleaning service to remove stains and deep dirt. I use Lloyd’s Chem-Dry for my home in Denver, CO. If an accident occurs during the rental, you can use Facebook to hire a carpet cleaner.


I recommend you scrub down the tiles and the bathtub in the shower in your bathroom. You should remove dirt from the grout and reseal if needed for a cleaner appearance.


This should be obvious but you need to bleach and clean your toilets before Airbnb guests arrive in your home. There’s no excuse for a toilet that isn’t 100% clean inside and out and you should have all the necessary cleaning solutions and tools in your home already.


If you have a yard, you will want to mow it and trim the weeds and prune the bushes before the guests arrive for their stay. This will make a wonderful first impression and excite the guests about their decision to stay in your home during their vacation or business trip.


Wipe down your refrigerator on the inside and the outside and throw out all of your expired food. Try to clear out as much of the food as possible in preparation of being gone and so there is more space for your guests. You should also wipe down microwaves and ovens too.


Place personal photos and valuables out of view in your home. This will create a more personal experience for your Airbnb guests during their stay in your home and you will want the comfort of knowing your valuables are safe. You could even drop them off at a nearby friend or relative’s home during your own vacation.

The money you earn from leasing your home on can help to pay for your current vacation or plan for a future one.

Must-Visit Attractions in Venace, Italy

venice italy

Traveling is a truly enriching activity; and one of the destinations common on every traveller’s list of dream tours is perhaps Venice, Italy.

The city has so many beautiful attractions to offer that tourists need to know about them beforehand to make their tight schedule more fruitful.

Here are some of the cant-miss attractions in Venice, Italy …

Mark’s Basilica

Built in honor of the evangelist St. Mark, whose remains were stolen and hidden in a pork barrel so as not to let him rest in Venice, is a must visit while traveling in Italy. The church is on a spacious piazza called St. Mark’s Square (Piazza San Marco). It was created by blending different forms of architecture.

At every corner, the place is filled with great pieces of art, sculpture or architecture that is highly symbolic, full of history and stills attracts our eyes in its massive opulence. The church is mainly decorated by Byzantine art that was part of the looted goods brought after the fall of Constantinople, though it has treasures from other periods too.

The golden altarpiece called Pala d’Oro is indeed a sight to behold. The square adjacent to the church is considered by many to be the heart of Venice.

Doge’s Palace

The Doge’s Palace or Palazzo Ducale has been the residence of the doge or leader and therefore the seat of government in Venice. It has seen significant changes in history. From the Venetian Lagoon the view of this palace almost seems to suggest that the building is floating on water.

A number of secret passageways, hidden pathways, doors add a hint of mystery and history to the lavish grandeur of the palace that you just cannot tear your eyes from. It has works by great Venetian artists like Tintoretto. The Bridge of Sighs, a private tour consisting of a walk across it is a great attraction too.

Grand Canal

The Grand Canal, possibly the most unique part of Venice is a giant canal sweeping through Venice in a giant reverse-S curve. This boulevard connects St. Marks’s Square, Rialto Bridge and other important rail stations and bridges on the mainland.

Palaces of all the leading families in Venice used to open n this canal, due to which there is a number of Gothic and early Renaissance architecture facing the canal. A trip along the canal by vaporetto is an experience of a lifetime indeed!

Gallerie dell’Accademia

A heaven for any art lover, this fine arts museum on the Grand Canal is home to a massive collection of 15th-18th century Venetian paintings. It hosts works of Renaissance artists like Mantegna, Piero della Francesca, Bellini, Carpaccio, Conegliano, Titian, Tiepolo, Tintoretto and many more.

Teatro la Fenice

This opera house, a survivor of two big fires, one of Venice’s most famous, is definitely a must-visit. Interestingly, its survival reflects the meaning of its name, Theatre of the Phoenix. Its interiors are decorated with gold. Plush velvet seats and lavish carpets echo a feeling of the old world classic Italian opera. It hosts many ballet, dance, music performances throughout the year.
