The other day, I was telling a friend about the ins and outs of what I do as an Airbnb host.
“Isn’t it exhausting to deep clean your house before every guest?” she asked. “I just don’t think I could keep up with that kind of rhythm.”
We have two spare bedrooms inside our own home which we rent out to guests.
I clean the guest bedroom and bathroom pretty thoroughly after every booking, but other than that I just do housework at the same pace I normally would.
If you’re renting out a space in your home, too, try to handle house cleaning the same way you’d handle it with family. Make sure their private space is clean, and don’t let the common areas be overly dirty or untidy, but a little mess isn’t going to hurt anyone.
Your guests will still feel at home, and you get to keep your sanity :).
