Why Vacation Home Rental Owners Need to Hire a Professional Cleaning Company

Aug 27, 2021Cleanners, Home Cleaning

Are you cleaning your own vacation rental after guests stay in it? If you are, you’re part of a dying breed, and you need to hear why many owners have decided that a professional cleaning company is absolutely the better choice (for you and your guests).


Free Up Your Time

This one is huge. Most people who are running a vacation rental are already struggling to find a work/life balance in the wake of their busy lives. And let’s face it, cleaning isn’t something that most of us enjoy doing.

If we’re being honest, even if you do find some time to clean up your vacation rental home, are you devoting the amount of time it truly deserves?

Also, consider that for every moment you’re cleaning you’re not able to reply to booking requests and handle the other important (often time-consuming) aspects of your vacation rental.

When you hire a professional cleaning service, you’ll have one less thing to fit into your busy schedule, and that alone is worth it.


Quality of Cleaning Increases

What we see way too often are vacation rental owners doing a surface cleaning job at their vacation rental property (because it’s all they have time for). This isn’t what your next guests deserve.

Many cleaning companies guarantee their services and provide a detailed list of what they’ll be doing. They also offer different packages that include various services depending on your needs.

When you hire vacation rental cleaning services to clean your rental the overall quality of the cleaning improves drastically for a few reasons:

  • They devote as much time as needed to the job
  • Professionals typically have higher grade cleaning supplies and tools
  • Use of a proven cleaning checklist ensures every inch of the house is spotless
  • More experience cleaning means catching trouble spots you may miss
  • They often have a cleaning team, not just one person
  • They can better handle any extra-tough (or disgusting) messes guests may leave behind


You Can Rent To More Guests

Many owners don’t want to spend the money on professional cleaning services when they can do it themselves and save some dollars. But you might be stopping yourself from making more money. Let’s look at the big picture in terms of the profit you’re bringing in from your vacation rental business.

If you have a professional cleaning company handle all of your cleanings, you can have them scheduled to arrive shortly after guests check out. By getting the unit ready to rent again as quickly as possible, you’re increasing your turnover speed, and can rent to more guests overall.

So while hiring a professional cleaning company may cost you some of your profit from a single stay, you will often make more profit in the long run by being able to book more stays overall.


Get Good Reviews, Avoid Bad Ones

One of the quickest ways to get a bad review is to have a vacation rental that isn’t clean. And any bad reviews that mention that your place was anything less than immaculate will put off future renters in a big way.

On the flip side, a spotless vacation rental will not go unnoticed, and those are some of the best reviews you can get.

When you hire a professional cleaning company, don’t just think of it as an expense: consider it more as insurance against bad reviews related to the cleanliness of your unit (and maybe an investment toward some good reviews).


Keep Track of Supplies

Many professional cleaning companies will also make sure that the supplies in your rental are all stocked up– the last thing you want is to have your rental run out of toilet paper in the middle of a guest’s stay.

This might be a slight additional fee, but it also takes one more thing off of your to-do list, and ensures that your guests have everything they need for every stay.



If you’re handling the cleaning duties of your vacation rental yourself, you’re losing a lot of flexibility for bookings that may arise.

For example, let’s say you have an opportunity for a last-minute rental, but your place isn’t clean. If you don’t have time to drop everything and go make your location spotless yourself, you’re going to lose out on that opportunity.

And even if you can squeeze in some time to clean for a last-minute rental, you don’t want to risk rushing it and potentially getting a less-than-perfect review.

With a single phone call, you can have a team of cleaners at your rental with plenty of time to get it spotless and guest-ready for that last-minute booking. The additional revenue from a short-term rental you otherwise couldn’t have gotten makes up for the cleaning fee.


Deep Cleaning For Safety

Now more than ever you want to ensure that your home is germ-free and safe for every guest.

While you might not use this option after every stay, consider that professional cleaning companies typically offer specialized deep cleaning packages that focus on disinfecting and sanitizing your living space.

If you don’t want to risk the spread of any sickness, then be sure to have a deep cleaning done by a seasoned, professional cleaning company.
