Cleaning Service Redondo Beach Shares the Ultimate Spring Cleaning Checklist

Spring cleaning checklist by cleaning services Redondo BeachOut with the old, in with the new! Spring is a time to start fresh, so premium cleaning service Redondo Beach has composed an amazing and helpful spring cleaning checklist to make the process go faster.

Your home will benefit from spring cleaning, and so will you, as you make some extra room, clear your mind and realize that less really is more. Once you’re done, you’ll want to show off your ideally clean and tidy home to all your friends. After all, completing a full-on spring cleaning project calls for a celebration!

Prep is the cornerstone

Not only will a well-thought-out preparation for this massive undertaking save you time and energy, but also help you be more decisive. Haven’t worn a T-shirt in over a year? Give it away or repurpose it. Get some boxes, categorize and subcategorize. Overthinking what stays and what goes only creates a vicious circle. Once you start decluttering like you mean it, you’ll find yourself astonished at how much of the stuff you own is totally redundant.

Cleaners must be good and ready. You’ll need to do some extensive vacuuming, so make sure your vacuum cleaner is perfectly clean itself, ready to tackle every single speck of dust in your home. As for cleaning supplies, don’t let yourself get distracted by too many choices – stick to the essentials. Don’t forget a disinfectant so you’ll know you’ve done an utterly thorough job.

Finally, any helpers (household members or friends) must be completely up to the task. In other words, if they can’t stand the heat, they’ll just be getting in the way.

The checklist

  • Cleaning household appliances – the dishwasher, the washing machine, the fridge and other household appliances must be squeaky clean so as to operate more efficiently.
  • De-gunk the kitchen – every element of your kitchen could, ironically, be the greasiest and germiest. Get scrubbing!
  • Thorough dusting and vacuuming – your vacuum cleaner is your must-trusted ally in this endeavor, as you’ll literally need to vacuum everything (even the ceilings and light fixtures). However, it might be wise to have a professional deep clean the carpets and upholstery. As for the curtains and rugs, they can go in the washer.
  • Make those floors shine – microfiber cloth and a strong cleaning solution is all you need to make floors perfectly spotless and looking beautiful.
  • Remove dust and debris from vents – this is not only about cleanliness, but also about energy efficiency and overall health.
  • Clean the plumbing – spring is also a time to clean the often neglected drains and get rid of those nasty odors.
  • Make the bathroom spotless – apply a cleaner to the grout and tiles, scrub with a brush and rinse. Once all the bathroom elements are absolutely stain-free, you’ll thank yourself.

2 Perfect Airbnb Listings You Can Learn From

improve airbnb listing

How often do you skim Airbnb listings? If you’re the typical host, maybe not very much unless you’re looking for a place to stay for yourself. We wouldn’t call this lack of looking “bad,” but we do think you’re missing out on a big opportunity to improve your own Airbnb listing.

By checking out popular listings from around the globe, you can see how other hosts have become successful and begin to implement those strategies for your own vacation rental. From decorating aesthetic and home features to specialized descriptions to using social media and everything in between, there’s a lot to learn from other listings.

Here are 2 Airbnb listings we love for their individuality and a few things we think make their hosts a cut above the rest.

1. The Joshua Tree House – Joshua Tree, California

Every great vacation rental has some kind of quality that makes it unique. The Joshua Tree House in Joshua Tree, California, has a number of incredible features that elevate it over other listings in the area. One of our favorites, though, are the super cool hanging swings in the living room.

The space is a glamping paradise with its wood-burning fireplace, trendy painted cement floor, threadbare Oriental area rug, and leather sofa. The swings give the house an additional, Instagrammable touch.

Why the Listing Is a Winner

The Joshua Tree House’s hosts, Sara and Rich, have a killer listing description and, aside from how cool the actual house is, the honesty of their listing is another important feature that sets the vacation rental apart from others:

 

 

  • The hosts are honest about the noise level, among other things. Sara and Rich are honest about where their home is located in town and that there may be more noise than what some guests might like. They even offer a suggestion for another listing for guests who are hoping for complete silence. They also mention specifics about the house and what is expected of guests.
  • They give details about check-in and ease of contact. Oftentimes, guests want to know how easy the hosts will be to contact and what to expect for check-in before they book. Sara and Rich give them all the information they might be wondering about, plus a little more.

 

 

There’s a lot worth copying from this listing.

2. **CENTRAL** Comfy Artist’s Home – London, England

You might be tempted to write this listing off because it’s for a single, private room in a London flat rather than an entire home rental, but you’d be wrong to do so! As the saying goes, don’t judge a book by its cover.

This quaint little flat in London catches guests’ eye thanks to its specialized decor. The host made her space inviting with antiques and lots of wall art. She’s chosen warm paint colors to brighten her home and fills much of the flat’s space, making it feel even more like a special showplace.

Why the Listing Is a Winner

The comfy artist, Tessa, has done a lot to make her place an eclectic, one-of-a-kind vacation rental. Like Sara and Rich, the Joshua Tree house hosts, she tries to give as much information as possible within the somewhat limiting description headers.

 

  • Tessa’s description utilizes additional capitalized headings to separate sections for clarity. Tessa breaks up her description beyond the automatically bolded sections to make it easier to skim for those guests who are looking for specific information. How? By capitalizing text to serve as additional “headers.”

 

We’re big fans of this because it gives hosts a better snapshot of what to expect during their stay.

 

They say “imitation is the best form of flattery.” We think the saying rings true with vacation rental listings, too! When you see a host who’s killing it, study their methods and replicate them in your own place and description. By emulating other successful hosts, you get one step closer to being the successful host you’ve always wanted to be.

I definitely think that as a company we've been able to make more money, not only because we're saving money by using Maid This, but also because they're helping take a few of the necessary evils with doing vacation rentals off of the property managers plate.
