How Often Should an Airbnb Be Cleaned?

Countless national and international visitors enjoy experiencing the culture and historic sites located throughout Washington D.C. by staying in an Airbnb. The cleanliness of your Airbnb can directly influence your guests’ comfort and overall impression of your listing.
If you want your property to have five-star reviews, it’s important that you maintain a consistent, thorough cleaning schedule.

Cleaning Regulations and Guidelines for Airbnbs

Whether you charge a separate cleaning fee or not, it’s important to follow a few basic cleaning regulations and guidelines to ensure your guests stay comfortable and safe during their visit. Unlike a hotel room, Airbnbs are not usually cleaned daily.
In many ways, it’s up to you as the host to decide how cleaning tasks will get done during a guest’s stay. Some hosts provide guests with cleaning products for everyday spills and messes. If your guests will be staying for an extended period of time, you might offer to clean the bathroom once a week.
Every time a guest leaves your Airbnb, though, there are some basic cleaning tips you want to follow. It’s important to clean all towels, pillowcases, and sheets.
Recently, Airbnb has implemented a five-step enhanced cleaning process based on their cleaning handbook that hosts need to follow between stays. This process involves:
  1. Preparing: Prepare the space for a safe, effective clean.
  2. Cleaning: Remove dust and dirt from all surfaces ranging from the countertops to floors.
  3. Sanitizing: Use chemical disinfectants on high-touch surfaces.
  4. Checking: Clean and sanitize each space based on the checklist for each room.
  5. Resetting: Wash your hands to prevent cross-contamination when cleaning and sanitizing a room.
