Checking out can be done just like most check-ins either personally, with a lockbox, or through a third party service.
There are three general options for cleaning after your guests arrive, and each one has its own pros and cons. This includes: cleaning everything yourself, hiring an individual, or hiring a professional group. Depending on your time, budget, and tolerance for potentially gross situations, you’ll have to see which works best for you. Cleaning everything yourself may seem cheap, but you’ll have to buy some heavy duty cleaning products to make it feasible. Plus, you’ll lose out on a lot of free time whenever a guest leaves.
An individual is a good middle ground option, and it will likely be cheaper than hiring a group. You can grow to trust them, and you’ll always know who’s in your property. Unlike a group, however, they may not move as quickly or always be available when you need them. For that reason, a professional team may be best since they likely will be free during peak times. This is especially important for those busy months where you have guests coming only a few hours after the prior ones have left. However, it all comes down to your personal preference along with other things like the size of your house, time between guests, and profit margin.
We recommend using a cleaning checklist each and every time that you clean your Airbnb to ensure a high quality clean.
