3 Steps to keep up with Airbnb’s enhanced cleaning protocol
As the restrictions due COVID-19 crisis are being gradually lifted, and you are probably considering to re-open your homes and investment properties to Airbnb again. You should take extra precautions to ensure the health and safety of your guests. Airbnb announced a new enhanced cleaning protocol to safeguard the guests and prevent the spread of COVID-19 virus.
Post Covid-19 crisis, the traditional cleaning will not be sufficient. That’s why Airbnb asked to visit Airbnb.com/cleaningresources to explore the latest guidelines about creating a clean and sanitized stay, and learn how to commit to the cleaning protocol, and more.
To do your Airbnb cleaning properly, consider doing the following:
1- Hire a professional cleaning company to clean and disinfect your Airbnb prior opening and regularly thereafter.
2- Discus the cleaning/disinfecting with the cleaning company and ask them to provide you a brief description of the cleaning steps involved. Is the cleaning company’s process equivalent or better than recommended Airbnb’s cleaning protocol?
3- Share the following information with your guests and customers: the cleaning/disinfecting process, the importance of cleaning, and your intention to protect the health and safety of your guests and customers, and how you go beyond the recommended Airbnb’s recommendations.
Remember, the cleaning and disinfecting is a specialized task and requires extensive training. You or regular traditional cleaning companies may not be up to date to do the proper cleaning. Review your cleaning company’s process and ask questions. If necessary, ask for new quotes and how the new cleaning company can put your Airbnb guests and customers at ease. Remember, dusting or wiping surfaces is not enough anymore. Above all, your cleaning company should provide the minimum services recommended by Airbnb cleaning protocol.
