Clean! Clean! Clean!

One of the most important aspects of a short term rental is cleanliness. All of the largest short term rental booking websites allow guests to rate their hosts. One of the biggest aspects that can cause you to lose business is lack of cleanliness. Not only will an unclean home leave you lacking in the clean category but could also cause your highly important overall rating to suffer. I have provided a cleaning checklist below that we actually use for one of our homes. You are welcome to copy and use or provide to your own cleaning people.
