Music is a part of everyone’s life. People use music to cool down and relax or to get pumped up and energized. No matter what you use music for, there’s no doubt that it affects us in a major way. In fact, music can even impact your vacation rental cleaning service!

Listening to music while you clean can help increase your focus, efficiency, and fun while cleaning vacation rental properties. Listed below are different genres of music and how they can be paired with cleaning tasks.

Classical

Classical music pairs well with tasks that require delicacy. For example, dusting porcelain, glass, or other fragile household items. The classical music also tends to inspire an attention to detail that is important for such tasks. With any genre, be sure that the music you choose has a medium-high tempo to keep your Airbnb cleaning service moving efficiently.

Be sure to check with the hosts for clarification that music is allowed during the hours that you are cleaning. Either way, it is important to keep the volume at a respectful level whenever necessary.

Electronic

Electronic Dance Music, or EDM, is a good choice for tasks that don’t require an extreme level of finesse. Tasks like mopping, sweeping, and scrubbing pair well with EDM because of the fast, repetitive beats. Be sure not to get too distracted with dancing while cleaning the property! Listening to music oftentimes transforms a mundane chore into an enjoyable task.

You can also alternate your music choices by day of the week. This way, you won’t get bored of your routine. Similar to perfecting cleaning techniques, choosing the right music will take some trial and error.

Your Favorite

We all have our preferences when it comes to music, just be sure that you’re choosing songs that will make your day brighter. Affordable portable speakers can be found on Amazon, or use headphones if that is possible. It may be wise to time your cleaning with and without music to test whether or not music helps increase your Airbnb cleaning service’s efficiency.

Small tricks like this can make a huge difference in the way you work. Whether or not you believe in the potential of music, give it a try and see how it affects you!
