The safety of your guests should be of the highest priority in an Airbnb. Make sure that you have the following essentials in your rental and that you regularly check them for proper functioning.
These should always be up to code and placed in areas where they can be easily seen and accessed. You should only need one, but check your building codes to see what the requirements are.
Carbon Monoxide Detectors
To detect the poisonous gas, you’ll need professionally installed carbon monoxide detectors. Some of the most common things that can exhaust carbon monoxide in your rental include furnaces, gas stoves and ovens, water heaters, and propane refrigerators. Carbon monoxide detectors will allow you to keep the CO levels in your Airbnb in check.
Smoke detectors should be put in place by professionals and regularly checked to make sure they still operate properly. Sometimes they might need battery replacements; this is something you can just schedule to do any way. In case of a fire, smoke detectors can significantly increase the chances of saved lives.
First Aid Kit
Having a basic first aid kit in your rental is absolutely necessary, and you also want to make sure that your guests know where it is located. In case of an emergency, you’ll want you guests to have easy access to a first aid kit that has more than just bandages in it. You’ll want it to be filled with the most essential items such as gloves, sterile gauzes, tape, disposable thermometers, antibiotic ointments, antiseptic wipes, antihistamines, and a face mask among a few others.
