My father had a cat in the house that i am opening up on Airbnb. I have spent the last 3 days, from 8am-11pm with few breaks in between, decluttering, cleaning, laundering, defuzzing and organizing the home. Everywhere I look there is CAT HAIR… caked behind the furniture, in the crevices of the sofa, in the books and crannies of the bed, in the surround sound speakers!!!.. how can I be sure to get all of it. I know how picky guests can be and I fear if they find a single hair they’ll claim dirty.
Anyone with cats… help!
In my current listings I write out house quirks and rules and sneak in there for the guest to tell me what kind of treat they’d like… I do this within the first 12 hours of a booking so if they are uncomfortable and want to cancel they can without a penalty… should I add “you may find some cat hair, but the space has been professionally cleaned” in my rules or “other things to note” or is that a complete turn off?
