I’m a rather new host, and I live above the studio apartment that is my Airbnb space. I’ve just had a second guest use the bathroom fan all night as a white noise generator. The first guest had the fan running for the entire weekend, even when they were away for 12+ hours. I only learned that they were using it as a white noise generator after texting them inquiring if there was a problem with the fan that we needed to fix. Because I live above the space, I can hear the fan running all night long, and it certainly doesn’t act like soothing white noise to me.
So this is my question: Is it obnoxious of me to put a small note near the bathroom fan switch asking guests to either (1) ask Alexa (I have an Alexa Show at the bedside for a clock, music, etc.) to play white noise; or (2) ask them to use a white noise generator, which I will happily purchase for as little as $20. Even if the noise didn’t bother me, I’d prefer NOT to use up the life of a motor needlessly when there are (in my opinion) other solutions. Or is this just the price of running an Airbnb. I realize that if it were a detached space I would have no idea that the bathroom fan might be running for a solid weekend.
