Rachel arrived 5 hours before booking in time and left 3 hours after departure time, which I agreed to but I warned her I would probably be washing the carpets with a carpet washer and hand scrubbing them, when she arrived. ( She saw me washing the carpets and walked on the damp carpets. ) The marble floor to the bathroom is hand washed and the terracotta tiles to the kitchen have antique dye ( to make them look old - some people think the dye is dirt ) were steamed cleaned. The carpets are vacuumed before every arriving guest. My guests stay on average 3-7 days so the carpets are vacuumed every 3-7 days. The building was being painted, when she was here and there were paint flakes and mess to the front of the building outside but the painting is finished and the mess has been pressure washed away. Everything is now pristine. The tiles to the front of the building are washed once a week and the tiles in the garden about every 3-4 days and sometimes daily. As to smells – the bathroom and the kitchen have automatic extract fans - as required by law. There are air fresheners and sprays in the bathroom and bedroom. I appear to have an average nose and I cannot detect any smells.
