As part of our Airbnb cleaning service, we offer the convenience of washing towels and bedding within the unit to ensure a fresh and hygienic environment for your guests. To facilitate this process, the host must provide bedding and towels and have an in-house washer and dryer available for our use. Additionally, hosts should make sure they supply laundry detergent and bleach to assist with the cleaning process.
In cases where hosts do not have access to in-house laundry facilities, we offer the option for hosts to provide the necessary funds for us to launder the bedding and towels, the laundry facilities must be within the same building. This ensures that your guests always have access to clean and well-maintained linens.
To guarantee the comfort of your guests, we also recommend hosts have spare towels and bedding available. This ensures that your property remains fully prepared for back-to-back guest stays and that your guests have access to fresh linens at all times. Providing these essential items contributes to a positive guest experience and helps maintain your property's reputation on Airbnb.
Hosts play a vital role in ensuring that their Airbnb property is well-stocked with essential supplies to meet their guests' needs. To enable us to fully restock the unit with items such as paper towels, trash bags, toilet paper, coffee, tea, and any other amenities or items they wish to provide to their guests, it is essential that hosts have these items readily available onsite for our cleaning team.
