Airbnb – Hire a Cleaner or DIY?

Should you hire a cleaner or DIY?

The ultimate question for Airbnb rental host around the globe. Should you hire a cleaning service or clean your Airbnb yourself? Forget about managing bookings, connecting with guests, and marketing caring for an Airbnb rental is a full-time job all on its own.

When it comes to caring for your rental, you have one of two options. You can clean the vacation rental yourself or you can hire someone to do it for you. Of course, there are some obvious differences so today we are going to talk about them.

Do the cleaning yourself

Cleaning your Airbnb by yourself is a way for you to ensure that everything is done perfectly to your liking. As perfect as perfect can get anyways. It’s a way for you to take control over the situation which also helps you take control over your overall guest experience.

It also helps you save money. By cleaning your rental by yourself you don’t have to dip into your earrings in order to provide a good customer experience. The more you clean, the more you save. Now, that’s a motto to live by. But just because you clean your rental doesn’t mean you should skip out on occasional deep cleanings from a cleaning company.

So although you may clean on a regular basis it’s crucial that you allow a cleaning service to come in monthly or bi-monthly to do a deep cleaning on your rental space.  

Hire a cleaning service

Hiring a cleaning service allows you to devote more time to focus on your rental business. With this option you are able to automate your cleanings weekly, daily, monthly, or after each guest departs. Automated cleaning services provide you with an easy to use online platform so that you can schedule cleanings, read and leave notes for your cleaner, check inventory, and more.

Aside from automated services, hiring a cleaning company provides you with the freedom to focus on other priorities. While they’re taking care of your rental, you can be running errands, paying bills, or enjoying that free time you never get. This option is best for people looking to delegate some of their daily and weekly chores. It’s also super convenient for those who simply don’t have the time.

You can also save money by hiring a cleaning service. Now you’re probably thinking, you said I could save money by not hiring a cleaning service. And you would be right, I did say that. You can save money both ways. If you run a busy rental service on Airbnb hiring a company that has all the cleaning supplies and inventory will save you from having to stock up on those things a la carte.

Overview

So as you can see caring for your rental has options. The question is, what’s the best option for you? Would you prefer to clean it yourself or hire a professional?
