Airbnb cleaners are always on the lookout for the greatest tools to speed up the cleaning process. With new gadgets and technology releasing almost every day, it can be overwhelming to keep up with which tool is the most effective.

It is true some Airbnb properties provide cleaning tools, but it is recommended to prepare your own tools and products.

Cleaning can be a meticulous task, with many steps and tools necessary to attain a deep clean. Help your cleaning team narrow down the best tools for them.

Best Tools for Floors

Dyson V11 Pro
$699.99
To get us started, the first tool is the vacuum. The most essential tool in a cleaner’s inventory.

When it comes to quick cleaning, nothing can beat the Dyson V11 Pro. This vacuum has twice the suction of any cordless vacuum at the cleaner head. Since this vacuum is cordless, reaching the far corners and tight spaces will be a breeze.

It has 120 minutes of charge and can easily switch between different types of floors. The best part? It comes with an extra filter and battery to ensure maximum efficiency.

If the Dyson is not the best fit, another recommendation for a more commercial vacuum is the Eureka Sanitaire Vacuum.

Bissell Deep Cleaner
$119.99
Got stubborn stains on the carpet? The Bissell Deep Cleaner easily handles the tough stains any guests may have left on the carpet. Equipped with a 48oz tank and different hose options, this tool will definitely be on every Airbnb cleaner’s list.

Since the Bissell Deep Cleaner is designed to be easy to use, setting up the machine will be a piece of cake. This is an especially important tool for Airbnb cleaners, as it also tackles stains on furniture, keeping the entire area clean.
Looking for a Bissell Cleaner that also tackles pet stains? Check out the Bissell- Little Green Pet.

Bissell Power Fresh Steam Mop
$89.00
Next is the Bissell Power Steam mop. To attain that “sparkling clean” look on tile or hardwood, the Bissell Power Fresh Steam Mop is the best fit! The steam mop not only scrubs away the dried-up grime but also sanitizes hard floors, killing 99.9% of germs on the floor.

The steam mop also comes with “Spring Breeze” fragance disks, releasing a nice scent into the room while you clean. Therefore there’s no need for Febreeze!

Best Tools for the Bathroom

Oxo Deep Clean Brush Set
$6.99
The next area to clean is the bathroom. Since most bathrooms have tiles either on the floor or in the shower, tackling the grout is a must while cleaning.

The Oxo Deep Clean Brush comes in a set of two, a large brush and a small brush. The bristles are perfect for handling grout in the bathroom and stovetops in the kitchen.

Pair it with The Pink Stuff miracle cleaning paste to truly remove any dirt or grime from all surfaces! The Pink Stuff uses all natural (vegan) ingredients, so there is also no worry about harsh chemicals while you clean.

Sprayway Glass Cleaner
$16.49 (for 2-pack)
The bathroom mirrors always attract streaks and water stains throughout the day, so Sprayway Glass Cleaner is the perfect product to achieve that sparkling reflection. Although the product says “glass cleaner,” this ammonia-free spray is perfect for mirrors as well.

This product is also helpful to clean windows and screens on TVs and computers, so use this product in every room of the house!

Pair it with a microfiber cloth to minimize the chances of getting any lint or streaks on the surface you’re cleaning.

Mr. Clean Magic Eraser
$6.97
The next product is the Magic Clean Eraser, which is perfect for erasing build-up grime on bathtubs and the bathroom walls.

If you are not familiar with the Magic Clean Eraser, using it is very simple. Just soak it in water and it’s good to go! Many Airbnb cleaners swear by this product for the best cleaning.

Best Tools for Kitchen

Scotch-Brite Non-Scratch Scour Pads
$2.42
Finally, the last but most important room to clean is the kitchen. The kitchen can easily become dirty from cooking, eating, and such. These tools for Airbnb cleaners are versatile and can also be used beyond the kitchen.

For scrubbing the countertops and stoves, Scotch-Brite Non-scratch Scour Pads make the job a lot easier. Scotch-Brite is effective on many surfaces and is long-lasting for those extra dirty pans.

Lambswool Duster
$19.88
The next tool is a duster to reach those high cabinets and grab those cobwebs above the fridge. The lambswool duster is recommended because the heads are washable and easy to keep clean.

Other alternatives such as Swiffer dusters aren’t as high quality and unfortunately aren’t reusable.

The dusters are perfect for clearing out the dust on window blinds and ceiling fans as well, so it is a vital tool to clean the house from top to bottom!

Make a List

Last and finally not least, don’t forget to bring gloves and a mask! Although it may seem like a small detail, these two things are life-savers for your health, especially during the time of COVID-19.

Hopefully, these tools for Airbnb cleaners help your cleaning company well during the busy summer season. It can get pretty overwhelming to keep track of everything that you should bring while cleaning, so we recommend making a list of everything to bring and what to get done.
