The Importance Of A Vacation Rentals Cleaning Service

How to Manage Housekeepers and Keep a Spotless Vacation Rental

Experienced vacation rental owners across the country can confirm that it doesn’t matter how beautiful, well-located, or trendy your home appears—if you don’t know how to manage housekeepers and keep a spotless rental, then travelers will be less likely to book your home.

With cleanliness at the top of a renters mind, owners should invest in quality housekeeping. Finding a reliable housekeeper can be time-consuming and tedious, especially if you manage a rental remotely. Vacation rental owner Tracey Lee manages two Dallas rentals remotely in California and said because of the distance, using a professional cleaning company is integral for her success.

How to find your housekeeper

Like many vacation rental owners, Lee tried to use the internet to find her housekeeper. “Not being local to the area where my vacation rental is located, I began my search for a cleaning company with a Google search,” she said.

How to choose your housekeeper

After you’ve figured out where to look for a housekeeper, you have to choose the best one for your needs.

 

How Much Should You Charge for Vacation Rental Cleaning?

Property managers and cleaning services getting started in the short-term rental industry often struggle with setting a price on vacation rental cleaning. It’s not hard to see why – go on VRBO or Airbnb and you’ll see the fees for cleaning a vacation rental vary from as little as $15 per stay to $200 per stay.

Costs vary widely from location to location, too. Professional vacation rental cleaning services can charge as much as $350/clean in some locations, whereas a cleaning service working a mere 50 miles away might have a hard time charging $100. It depends on demand, the quality of clean required by the property’s guests, and the cost of living in a given area.

At First Glance

One of the reasons these numbers are so difficult to determine is that the most commonly cited place to check fees for vacation rental cleaning is on listing sites like VRBO and Airbnb. These numbers consistently show a range too wide to be useful.

With rates ranging from $50-$150, it’s quite the guessing game to determine a reasonable hourly rate from those numbers. In addition to the problem of variance, the fees above are not the fees exchanged between property managers and service providers.

Ask. Then Ask Some More.

The simplest way to determine rates in a major metro area like Los Angeles or Paris is to ask better-established businesses in your field.

 

New Vrbo Program Promises A Closer, Cleaner Vacation Rental

As the travel industry starts down a long road to recovery, companies are looking for new ways to reassure customers that their products are safe. Vrbo just introduced a new program to help its customers find a clean vacation rental closer to home. It includes cleanliness guidelines and new search filters that will guide customers to the right property.

New cleaning standards. These new guidelines combine information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), and Cristal International Standards. Homeowners and property managers now have “clear guidelines” for disinfecting high-touch surfaces, building in time between bookings to avoid back-to-back stays, and stocking antibacterial handwashes, cleaners and hand sanitizers for guests.

New property descriptions. Homeowners and property managers will be able to report if the property is being cleaned with disinfectant, if guests can check in and out without any person-to-person contact, and whether the property is unavailable for at least 24 hours between guests. Once property owners have supplied that information, Vrbo will add it to the property descriptions that travelers see on the site and app.

New search filters for flexibility and proximity. Vrbo’s internal polling suggests more than 75% of guests are more likely to choose accommodations with flexible cancellation policies when booking their next vacation home. So the company is adding new search filters that allow customers to find vacation homes that provide a full refund when canceling by a specific date. Vrbo will also highlight listings with the most relaxed cancellation policies, making it easier for people to find vacation homes that offer free cancellation closer to their check-in date. Vrbo is also adding a search function for proximity, so you can plan a driving vacation.

You’ve introduced some significant changes to your product today. What are you hoping to accomplish?

We know that when families decide they’re ready to travel again, they’re going to have new priorities when choosing a place to stay. Vacation homes already have the space and privacy away from crowds we know they’ll want, but there are other things we need to highlight for them, including cleanliness, flexibility, and places to stay close to home.

 

Cleaning Guidelines for COVID-19

Cleaning a vacation rental is no small task, even when we are not faced with a global pandemic. A housekeeper is expected to take a property that is in disarray from departing guests and completely reset it—eradicating the microbes that have been left behind in the property and creating a like-new experience for arriving guests. Vacation rental professionals understand that cleaning a property effectively requires specific training, appropriate supplies, and a systematic process

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Vacation Rental Housekeeping Professionals (VRHP) and the Vacation Rental Management Association (VRMA) are recommending that existing cleaning programs be augmented to include even more rigorous sanitization and disinfection protocols. These recommendations are below

All vacation rental field staff/housekeepers/technicians or other employees should complete training regarding proper and safe cleaning techniques and property security. Teams need to understand how to safely use chemical products (such as germicides used to clean bathrooms) and dispose of trash, cleaning supplies, and biohazards appropriately. Note: VRHP offers these types of training programs and can assist with questions from members about their programs.

Small viral particles can hang in the air for many hours. The currently available WHO information suggests that respiratory droplets can last up to 3 hours in the air. Respiratory droplets are heavier than smaller aerosol particles, which can linger in the air for a longer time. To date, the scientific research is still unclear as to how long smaller COVID-19 particles may stay suspended in air, and what possible infection rates may stem from aerosols. A study published in The New England Journal of Medicine found that the COVID-19 virus can survive up to three days on hard metal surfaces and plastic and up to 24 hours on cardboard. During that window of the time, the virus does begin to weaken. In light of these findings, VRHP/VRMA recommends that waiting for the majority of airborne droplets to settle (at least 3 hours) is the safest course of action. A timeframe of up to 24 hours between the last exit from a property and next entry is reasonable, if the business needs can accommodate longer wait times.

VRHP/VRMA strongly emphasizes the importance of ensuring the appropriate use of all personal protective equipment (PPE), including masks, disposable gloves, and, in some cases, splash goggles for any entry into a property, even after the 24-hour waiting period. Splash goggles to cover the eyes and a mask that covers the nose and mouth and creates a good seal against the face should be required for any entry to a property within the 3-hour timeframe for respiratory droplet settling.

Upholstery Cleaning Is Crucial To Improve Air Quality In Your Home

How to Clean a Couch

Whether you’re trying to tackle a specific stain or want to give your entire couch a seasonal refresh, give this easy how-to a try:

  1. Use a handheld garment steamer or bursts from your steam iron to kill dust mites. Go over the entire sofa, allowing just the steam to touch and penetrate the fabric. If you don’t have a steamer or iron, skip this step and go straight to vacuuming.
  2. With your vacuum’s upholstery attachment, go over the entire sofa: back, arms, skirt, and cushions. If the cushions are removable, take them off and vacuum the fabric underneath, going as far under the back and arms as your vacuum can reach. With the crevice tool, go along the seams, around any buttons, and along the trim.
  3. Take a look at your couch’s care tag to see what’s safe to use on the fabric:
    • Wis the easiest to clean and means water-based cleaners are okay to use.
    • W/Smeans that either water- or solvent-based cleaners are safe.
    • Smeans only solvent-based cleaning chemicals should be used.
    • Xmeans do nothing more than vacuum or brush the fabric.
  4. For fabrics that can safely be cleaned with water, treat food and pet stains with an enzyme-containing formula like Bissell Professional Pet Stain & Odor Remover. In a pinch, mix together mild dish soap with warm water. Always test any cleaner in a hidden area first.
  5. If your cushions have removable covers, unzip them and place a paper towel between the fabric and filling to absorb cleaner. Apply the cleaner to a cloth and blot the stain carefully, working from the outside in. Once the stain is removed, dab the area with another damp cloth to rinse thoroughly and blot dry. For “S” fabrics, remove stains with a solvent-based product according to package directions.
  6. Clean dingy arms and headrests with a portable extraction cleaner like Bissell’s Little Green ProHeat Portable Cleaner. Simply dispense the cleaner and water mixture through the hose, agitate the fabric with the brush nozzle, and vacuum up the dirt into the tank. For solvent-only fabrics, it’s best to call in a professional for a safe and thorough cleaning.
  7. Once your sofa is clean and dry, kill any lingering germs and odors on water-safe upholstery with a fabric sanitizing spray like Tide Antibacterial Fabric Spray.

 

Remove Pet Hair from Upholstered Furniture

If your furry friends like to cozy up on the couch with you, try these tips for cleaning upholstered furniture. To remove pet hair from furniture, put on a pair of rubber gloves and run them over your furniture, says Leslie Reichert of Green Cleaning Coach. “The gloves create static that pulls the hair off to the edge of the piece, where you can easily vacuum it off,” she says. You can also create a DIY static spray by mixing water and a small amount of fabric softener. Spray the solution on the furniture and wipe off hair with a cloth. Other effective tools for removing fur from upholstery include furniture brushes and hand vacuums designed for pet hair.

 

How to Clean a Fabric Sofa If It’s Stained

If your sofa tag is marked with an “X,” you should only vacuum it with an attachment. And, as you now know, sofas tagged with “S” require solvent-based cleaners that should be clearly labeled with the directions you need for those particular products. The cleaning instructions below should only be used for sofas with tags marked “W” or “WS.”
You’ll need the following items and ingredients:

  • A vacuum cleaner with an upholstery attachment
  • At least three light-colored microfiber cloths that won’t bleed on your sofa
  • A bucket
  • Distilled water (The minerals in tap water can leave residue behind. A quick Internet search should yield plenty of DIY instructions on distilling water, or you can find an inexpensive jug at almost any grocery store.)
  • Liquid dish soap
  • Distilled white vinegar

Note: You should always spot test homemade solutions on a small, inconspicuous area of the material before you begin cleaning.

 

How to clean loose sofa covers     

A lot of our fabric sofas have loose, removeable covers that can be taken off individually and cleaned. This means that you can access all the areas of your upholstery for more convenient maintenance, while also being able to machine wash each cover should the care label allow for it (always check beforehand to be sure). If you need to wash by hand, you can follow the steps above, and it’s a good idea to put them back on the sofa to dry naturally to avoid creasing.

Velvet upholstery needs regular brushing too

The majority of upholstery fabrics only require a regular cleaning regime, but velvet sofas require an extra step to keep them looking and feeling great. To preserve the material’s natural sheen, you will need to go over it with a clothes brush or a specialist velvet brush, which will help it develop an antiqued ‘crushed’ appearance that will only improve with age. The best time to do this is immediately after vacuuming or when dry after deep cleaning.

Choose a shady spot to avoid sun and heat damage

When your upholstery is left out in the sun, it can fade, bleach, and lose its natural qualities. In addition, heat from radiators, pipes, and fireplaces can cause the material to become dried out and warped. Take this into account when you are looking for the best spot for your sofa, as somewhere without too much sunlight and away from heat sources will cause the least damage in the long-run.

Plump your cushions to keep shape

Alongside a regular cleaning regime, it’s important to service your sofa’s cushions so they keep their natural shape and provide the optimal level of comfort and support. All you need to do is plump your seat, arm, and back cushioning after each long period of use, perhaps at the end of each day. This is an essential task if your sofa is filled with feathers, fibres, or a combination of both, as they do not have the same resilience as foam and won’t return to their original form.

While you’re plumping your cushions, don’t pass up the opportunity to do the same to your scatter cushions or wool throw so that they maintain their shape too.

 

Cleaning upholstered furniture : Leather

  • Begin with vacuuming. Don’t forget to run the vacuum cleaner over seams and in nooks and crannies, where the dust particles get accumulated the most.
  • Apply a small amount of leather cleaner on a dry cloth and gently clean the surface.
  • If a leather cleaner is not available at your nearest store, you can also opt for the good old white vinegar as a substitute. Take a dry cloth and dampen it with vinegar and wipe off your furniture to achieve the same result.
  • Since any kind of moisture will create a fertile ground for mildews, try using leather cleaner and solvents to a minimum. Instead, make do with vacuuming on a regular basis.
  • To remove stains on leather furniture, spray upholstery cleaner on the stains and keep it for some time. After ten to fifteen minutes, gently blot with a damp cloth. Use a hair dryer or let it dry on its own.

Domestic Cleaning Or Commercial Cleaning

Tips to Help You Choose the Right Commercial Office Cleaning Company

When it comes to keeping the office clean, a lot of businesses have an important decision to make: should they add a cleaning crew to the company payroll, or hire a commercial cleaning company to handle those duties? While there are pros and cons to both approaches, there are greater reasons that indicate outsourcing this work is the best option.

Do a thorough background check

When it comes time to find a commercial cleaning company for your office, it’s important to ask the right questions. Because you can ensure you get the best service available – and at the right price. Find out how many days they work and the hours they’re available. Especially if you want the work done after your office closes for the day and your employees have gone home.

Ask for references from companies they’ve worked for

When selecting a commercial cleaning company, you should do a little research on their reputation. Check out their customer satisfaction reviews and the company’s overall standing within the local business community. Find out who they’ve worked for in the past and how they’ve been rated by others. Were other companies satisfied with their performance? Would they recommend them? These are great questions to ask.

Ask if they have liability insurance

All prospective commercial cleaning companies should be able to provide proof of insurance and demonstrate that they’re fully licensed. You should ask to see their general and workers compensation certificates. Also, look for a company that hires regular employees rather than cash workers; they’re the ones that carry insurance against liability and injury if an accident should happen in your office while they’re on the job – this protects both you and the cleaner. And absolutely do NOT forget to verify their business license.

Make sure they only hire professionals

It’s important to ask how they hire their employees, and to inquire about the company’s hiring procedures and vetting process. You want to be sure that the crew they’re sending over to clean your office behaves professionally and knows how to do the job properly. You may also want to inquire about their dress code to ensure they show up presentable and professional – many will have a uniform and ID badge, which is good info to know up front.

 

Tips To Find Good Commercial Cleaning

Tips for Choosing a Commercial Cleaning Company

Maintaining your office space should be a priority for a few different reasons. While the upkeep of your office may be a no-brainer, choosing the right commercial cleaning company can be a daunting task. With so many companies to choose from in Boise, it can be difficult to narrow them down.

Services Offered

The first thing you’ll want to know before hiring a commercial cleaning company is if they provide the services you need. Some companies specialize in janitorial services while others focus on window cleaning. You might also be in the market for a commercial cleaning company that can provide multiple services. This will streamline your process and eliminate any companies you don’t need to contact.

Past Reviews and Experience

Commercial cleaning companies enter your property after hours for the most part. Handing over this responsibility requires confirming that they are a reputable company. Inquire about current clients and experience to gain a sense of well established the cleaning company is. Having an idea of who they work for and how long will help you decide if you can trust them.

Quality of Employees

Protecting your property starts with trusting a company to provide service after hours, but ensuring they do a quality job requires asking about their workforce. A professional commercial cleaning company should be able to walk you through the steps of their hiring process. The process should include screening with background checks followed by employee training for a uniformed end product. You can also ask if a staff member will visit your facility regularly or if turn-over requires irregular scheduling

Dependable

A professional cleaning company will be dependable and reliable. You should never have to guess when your cleaners will arrive at your office. A professional, experienced cleaning company will work closely with their clients to create a cleaning schedule that works well for everyone.

 

Tips on Choosing Commercial Cleaning Services

Skills and experience

This is the first quality to check when hiring a commercial cleaner. Make sure that the cleaner has the necessary skills that are needed to handle commercial cleaning. Commercial cleaning is quite different from home cleaning and requires some level of skill.

Most the commercial cleaning undergo training to gain familiarity in cleaning skills, and this is important. Experience is also another important aspect because you don’t want to choose a company that is so new to the business. You might want to select someone who already knows how things are done.

Method of cleaning

When choosing a commercial cleaner, take time and ask about the method cleaning that they use. This will help you determine whether the method of cleaning used is right for you. The method of cleaning will sometimes be determined by your type of business. For instance, there are businesses that prefer an environmentally friendly type of cleaning.

Specialty of the cleaner

The specialty of the cleaner is always important when choosing a commercial cleaner. It is important to choose a cleaner that is specialized in a given area especially if you are involved in a business that requires special cleaning.

Contract

The contract is an important aspect of hiring a cleaning company. Take a look at their contract and look at some of the aspects of insurance, costs and the general terms of the contract. This will tell you if you can work with the company

 

Hints and tips on choosing an office or commercial cleaning company

To make the right choice of cleaning company you need to ask the right questions. You have probably had experience of cleaning companies in the past good and bad, so to choose the right cleaning company next time, and to save you time and money, you need to make an informed decision. Do some research on the company and ask questions at your first meeting:- Are they experienced in running cleaning contracts?

Can you easily get references or testimonials from other companies that use them? Will there be a regular point of contact who is easy to get in touch with? Or will you have to wait days before anyone gets back to you? Do they support their cleaning staff and regularly carry out audits? Or do they gain the contract then leave the cleaning staff to it? What arrangements are made for holiday / sickness cover? Do the cleaning staff have to cover for each other? Do they train their staff in correct methods of cleaning?

Do the cleaning staff have enough materials to work with? Or is it a monthly delivery and if they run out do the cleaning staff have to make do? Is their Health & Safety up to date and ongoing?

Or do they just tick the right boxes? Are they local to the area? Or do they cover a wide area and rely on one manager to cope with numerous contracts and staff?

Do they have a good track record and look after their customers? Or do they gain contracts then lose them after a short time? I hope the above helps in what to look out for when sourcing a cleaning company. We are not perfect but we are a genuine company who wants to supply a good quality cleaning service at a reasonable price. Your staff will work better and be more productive if they are in a clean and healthy environment. We are local to Banbury and believe businesses should ‘keep business local’.

 

Tips for Choosing the Right Commercial Cleaning Company For Your Business

Do you have a business that needs to be cleaned? Have you considered outsourcing the jobs of vacuuming, taking out the trash and cleaning restrooms? If so, you’re probably interested in choosing the best commercial cleaning company for your business. What are some tips to choose the best one?

Reputation is Key

First, consider a cleaning company’s reputation in town. Since cleaners often work with minimal supervision, you’ll want to pick a company with a sterling reputation… one that people know they can trust no matter what. Therefore, look for a company that has been established for a while, that has several accounts, and offers references. Rather than go with a brand new company that doesn’t have a history, look for one that has built-up an outstanding reputation such that others recommend them to you because they’ve had a great overall experience.

Employment Standards

Next, a cleaning company that claims to be the best must take hiring seriously. Instead of just picking any person “off the street” and throwing them into the job, a great company is very specific with their hiring practices, making sure that the people they employ go through background checks. Also, they don’t hire people with criminal records. Meanwhile, they conduct extensive training, such that their workers exhibit professionalism at all times, paying extra attention to safety on the job and more. When you’re looking to hire a commercial cleaning company you should ask, “Will the same people be cleaning our place on a regular basis?” Ideally, you should find a company with low turnover.

The Right Expertise for the Job

Other things to consider when looking for the best commercial cleaning company to clean your business include what services they offer coupled with what kind of facilities they can truly handle cleaning… for instance, if they only have a couple employees, they’re probably not the right company for a job that involves cleaning a sprawling manufacturing plant that takes up a couple acres. Meanwhile, make sure the company offers what you need done, which can include trash removal, sweeping/mopping, dusting, stocking consumables, and/or restroom cleaning.

The Best Time To Make House Cleaning

House Cleaning Services – Do It Yourself or Use Professional Cleaners?

If you do decide to undertake the task of house cleaning services yourself then it may be advisable to do a little research into the type of cleaning products you should use for the different surfaces in your household. Failing to do this could end in disaster with damage to some of your prized finished surfaces and material coverings including carpets in the house.

Most home owners today live fairly busy life styles with work, family, sports and other social activities so regular house work and cleaning are sometimes put down the bottom of the priorities list of things to do. Busy householders would rather spend their free time engaging in more enjoyable activities. Many I imagine will be more than happy to contract in professional house cleaning services to undertake what can be a laborious and time consuming job.

 

DIY factors to consider

Some people find housecleaning to be therapeutic, and some homeowners feel that they may actually do a better job than a professional. But some cleaning tasks might be better left to the professionals. There are several things to consider when deciding if you should DIY your housecleaning:

  • Do you have the time to do all the cleaning you would like? The time it takes to clean will depend upon the size of your home, the number of bedrooms and bathrooms, if you have pets, and how thorough a job you want done. You may also find that family members can hinder your progress by interrupting your cleaning time or delaying starting cleaning.
  • Is your time more valuable than what a cleaning service would cost? Getting several price quotes is the best way to understand how expensive it will be to clean your home. Some cleaning companies run introductory price specials or offer discounted pricing for regular cleaning appointments.
  • Do you have the needed skills and knowledge? You may know how to wipe down surfaces or make your bed, but a person who cleans for a living generally cleans faster than someone who cleans occasionally. Some cleaning services specialize in non-toxic cleaners and may have a higher training level for how to best clean appliances, flooring or how to clean in order to not spread germs throughout the home.
  • Do you have the proper cleaning products and equipment? Cleaning companies that supply their own equipment may also help you save money for supply and material costs. They may also be able to bring special steam cleaners or tools that make the job faster.

 

4 Reasons to Hire a Professional Cleaner (Even Though You Can Probably Do It Yourself)

A Professional Will Do a Better Job Than You

Too harsh? Sorry, but still… it’s probably true. Because while you might be an expert with the mop or a dusting ninja, the truth is, there are probably things you either don’t enjoy cleaning (so you put it off) or just aren’t as good at (like dusting ceiling fans or vacuuming under the bed). But just like how you do the very best at your job, that’s what a professional will do when he or she comes to clean your home. Sounds kinda nice, right?

You’ll Appreciate Your Home in a New Way

Much like how a sandwich tastes ten times better when someone else makes it, a spotless home feels ten times better when someone else cleans it. There’s really just no better feeling than walking into an immaculate space and knowing that instead of starting in on the never-ending list of chores, you can kick your feet up and just enjoy your sanctuary.

You’re Busy

There are a million reasons your schedule is probably jam-packed. You work long hours, you’re taking care of you’re family, there’s a passion project you really want to achieve this year… Whatever the reason, hiring a professional to help you clean means cutting yourself some slack and giving yourself a break. Which will automatically alleviate some stress. Less stress and a toilet so clean you’ll let the dog drink out of it? Yes, please.

Time is Money

Yes, you can clean your home yourself and you may even have the time to do so, but a lot of professional services will do it for you at an affordable rate. Which means instead of cleaning, you can be hanging out with friends and family, reading a book, going on a bike ride, or whatever it is you

 

Benefits To Hiring A Quality House Cleaning Services

Professional know which supplies to use on surfaces

It took time for your house to turn into your home. You have furniture, tiles, and appliances that are all made out of various materials, so you definitely can’t use the same cleaner on all of them. You also don’t want to use something that can leave marks and scratches. Professionals know what cleaners to use on things and what products should be avoided. That will ensure that everything in your house is in optimum condition.

Professionals have a system

Maybe you start in your kitchen and then randomly work your way through the house since you think that works. However, you might be doubling or tripling your work. A professional will have a system when they show up at your house along with a checklist of things that should be cone. They can work more efficiently, thanks to their system, to get the job done in much less time.

A professional knows how to clean better

Maybe you think you know your house better than a cleaning professional. That might be true, however, there are things in your house that you most likely have a tendency to overlook since those are areas you don’t like cleaning or don’t know how to clean, such as your ceiling fans. Areas that are hard to reach have a tendency to be forgotten and over time more dirt and dust will build up and make you want to give up. A professional will ensure that everything is cleaned that needs it.

 

HOW TO KEEP A CLEAN HOUSE SCHEDULE

The basic how to clean a house professionally checklist goes over the things we will do on each trip to the house. However, there are many other cleaning tasks that do not need to be done during weekly or biweekly trip to clean a house. Some cleaning tasks are only necessary on a monthly, seasonal, or annual schedule. This how to keep a clean house schedule will go over tasks that should be done every now and then.

Every Month: Move furniture to clean under and behind it, vacuum all vents, damp wipe doors, frames, and baseboards, use grout cleaner to lift stains on grout, and clean under couch cushions.

Every Three Months: Clean interiors of fridge and dishwasher, empty and wipe out cabinets and drawers, damp wipe blinds, sanitize and clean garbage cans, remove and clean pot grates and coils on stove, and descale faucets and shower heads.

Every Year: Clean and shine the windows, clean dryer vents, deep clean carpets with a stain remover, and remove outlet plates and light switch covers to soak and clean.

Keep in mind that some homeowners request we do these tasks on a more regular basis. We sometimes need to alter this house cleaning chart and schedule for various clients.
