Last week I had a group of 20-somethings come to my 3 bedroom 3 bathroom and stay for a week. They informed me of the nature of their stay and said that 4 of them would be staying in the rental. I am not naive to the fact that they were going to be drinking and having a good time in and outside of the property. I let the guests know that many of the surrounding residents are older and won’t hesitate to call the police if there are any inappropriate disturbances. I wanted them to understand that they are welcome to have a good time as long as they comply with the rules I laid out for them and that the property must be respected.
Well, at the end of the week I was pleasantly surprised with the communication that the guests upheld and that the state of the house was quite acceptable. However, upon further inspection I found that the upstairs bathroom was clogged and had an acidic vomit-like aroma to it. After a few hours of trying to clean it my self before my cleaners arrived I decided to contact the guests and ask them straight forward if somebody puked in the sink. Again, I was surprised by their transparency and they owned up to the fact that there was vomit in the sink. I told them that I appreciate their honesty but unfortunately I will have to charge them for an additional cleaning fee. I hire my cleaners on TurnoverBnB and I was forced to assign an additional cleaner to the property due to the extra time the sink required.
As I mentioned, the sink was the only con to these guests staying on my property and still wrote them a great review. They have also told me to send them the estimate for a plumber or whatever charges I incurred for the sink. I am wondering if anyone has any advice for unclogging the sink without drain-o or a snake as I have already been unsuccessful with these methods. I don’t want to hire a plumber if it isn’t necessary but my cleaning team and I are currently stumped.
Thank you in advance!
