– Cleaning is not just wiping down services, it's making sure your guests feel comfortable in your space- Bathrooms and kitchens need the most attention- Hair is the biggest culprit, use a lint roller before you do any vacuuming or mopping, once hair gets wet it's very hard to remove it from the surface- Empty out and clean the fridge, only leave unopened beverages- Use fresh linnens and towels- Guest spend the majority of the time sleeping, so it's very important that they feel comfortable in your bed- Use white linnens without stains so your guests know that they are clean- Include fresh pillow cases and a duvet covers- Put two sets of towels in each bedroom, including a bath towel, a hand towel and a bath cloth- Reserve some space in your dresser to put their clothes including hanging space- Make the guests' stay memorable, give your guests a special note, bottle of wine or something else
