Are you an Airbnb host dealing with the aftermath of a guest’s stay and trying to get rid of the lingering smells? Whether it’s an unpleasant odor from cooking, pet odors, smoke, or just general musty smells, getting rid of leftover guest smells can be an overwhelming task. Fortunately, there are several tips and tricks that you can use to get your Airbnb smelling fresh and inviting again.
Invest in Cleaning Products
The first step to getting rid of any smells is to thoroughly clean the Airbnb. Invest in some good cleaning products, like a professional-grade all-purpose cleaner, and use it throughout the home to get rid of any dirt or grime that could be causing the smell. Vacuum carpets and furniture, and use a steam cleaner to remove any deep-set dirt or odors. Cleaning the air vents and air conditioning filters can also help to remove any smells that might be trapped in the air.
If you’re dealing with pet odors, it’s important to use an enzymatic cleaner to eliminate the smell. This type of cleaner works by breaking down the proteins that cause the odor, rather than just masking it like traditional cleaners. If possible, you may also want to invest in an air purifier to help remove pet dander and other allergens from the air.
When it comes to smoke smells, it’s important to use a smoke-eliminating cleaner to remove the odor. This type of cleaner works by breaking down the chemicals that cause smoke smells, rather than just masking them. You may also want to invest in an ozone generator to help eliminate smoke smells from the air.
If you’re dealing with more general musty smells, it’s important to use a deodorizing cleaner. This type of cleaner helps to eliminate odors from the air, rather than just masking them. You may also want to invest in an air purifier with a carbon filter to help remove odors from the air.
Finally, it’s a good idea to open the windows and let in some fresh air to help get rid of any lingering smells. You may also want to invest in some air fresheners to help make the space smell inviting.
By following these tips, you should be able to get rid of any leftover guest smells in your Airbnb and make it smell fresh. Good luck and happy hosting!
