I have a small 1 bedroom guest suite that gets mostly 2 night, 3 night stays. I have a day job so I can't do all the cleaning myself on turnover.
The cleaning is typically minimal, make up the bed, clean kitchen and bath and vacuum. I can do it in an hour. So I'm planning on charging a $50 fee on the listing and passing that on to my cleaners. Anything over that and I think my guests will balk.
I'm having a real hard time finding someone who is willing to come by 10-15 times a month to do the turnoever cleaning, even though it's fast and a guaranteed $600+/a month for the cleaner.
Any tips ? There are so many airbnb's out there in SF. what is everyone doing to get them cleaned!?
@Linda793 we have the same issue!
Our very modestly sized place only takes us about 75 minutes to clean. (I time it)
We have been collecting $65 cleaning fee, but haven't found anyone willing to do the turnover for $65.
I understand about the travel time and such, but it seems a shame that it is so hard to find anyone in San Francisco to do small turnovers like this.
All the AirBnB-related services I contacted wanted about $100 to $120.
I don't think they are being unreasonable; that seems to be the going rate.
But I only have $65 to spend on it.
I have a cleaning woman who is looking for work in San Franciso. Her name is Ruth ****, Her English isn't great and I speak no Spanish so I text her and she transcribes it on her phone into Spanish. It seems to work. Her company is Pronto Professional Cleaning Services, phone ****. She is licensed. I can be reached at ****.
