Hello All.

 

I'm new to Airbnb hosting and would like to ask a question about cleaning. Its great being able to read all your comments, tricks and tips and also share in your experiences.

 

I'm having to clean a two bed house myself as I just cannot find Airbnb cleaners in the area (Essex) to do the job of cleaning for me. I find the job most grueling and it takes away completely from the work day but I'm glad for the experience as when I do finally hand over to a cleaning company I know first hand what's involved.

 

I have had many short term bookings to date and have applied a one time cleaning fee of £100.00 for a clean after short term guests have left. My question is how would you work out a cleaning fee or fees for long term guests who stay 1 month or more, how often would/should you clean?

 

Sincerely

Hello @Venice2,

 

Lovely to meet you and welcome to the Community Center. It's great you are learning so much here. 

 

Thanks for your post, I thought your question here warranted it's own discussion thread and it also makes it easier for the other topic to flow, so I've moved your post to the Hosting board. 

 

I hope this is ok with you. 

 

 

Does anyone have any tips on what would be a good way to deal with cleaning fees during longer stays? 

 

Thanks so much,

Lizzie
