If you’ve been doing Airbnb for some time or have more than one rental, you likely have figured out that hiring a turnover assistant (cleaner who also knows your space intimately and can stage it for you with the knowledge you’ve provided) is essential to freeing you up to make more money doing what you love (which is probably not just hosting Airbnb guests).
However, like in any relationship, it’s easy for things to go wrong if you’re not making clear agreements.
Whatever agreements you make while hiring your assistant, make sure they are specific and documented. If you feel the urge, have both of you sign them as well.
Here are some 5-star agreements you can make with your assistant.
Whether you’re hiring a cleaner or turnover assistant, or you’re working with a co-host who is helping you with your properties, you’ll need to communicate your desired results with love and intention.
But when the situation might be emotionally charged, or there’s some confusion with initial communication, what can you do? Read on!
There are plenty of paid Airbnb cleaner and turnover services now that serve the host community, some nationally based and some local. Airbnb has even integrated Handy into their platform in some areas, like New York City. And they often do more than cleaning—they can take care of everything from washing the sheets to handing over the keys.
My general opinion, however, is that paid services are too impersonal for this particular kind of work.
We’re now three days out from the public launch of my new book, Cleaning Up: How to Work With a Turnover Assistant to Uplevel Your Profit, Freedom and Success Hosting on Airbnb. The intro pre-order tier has now ended; those of you who ordered early and got the discount will receive the book early, today!
Today, I’m so excited to reveal the full title to you and the cover design.
It was designed by Tony Bacigalupo, who is a whiz at Photoshop and funneled my exacting demands into poetry in pixels. :)
If you live in your home and you’re leaving it up to you to do the cleaning and turnover before your guest arrives and before you head out of town (which you may decide to do whether or not you have a turnover assistant to help you when you’re not around, to save money or for other reasons), here are some things to remember.
