Outsourcing vs DIY: Choosing the Right AirBnB Cleaning Approach

Outsourcing vs DIY: Choosing the Right AirBnB Cleaning Approach

When deciding between hiring professional cleaning services and managing the cleaning of your AirBnB property yourself, you need to weigh up the pros and cons of each approach.

Hiring professional cleaning services:


– Expertise: Professional cleaners have the skills and experience to ensure a thorough and consistent clean, leaving your property in the best possible condition.

– Time saving: Outsourcing cleaning tasks frees up your time to focus on other aspects of property management and personal commitments.

– Consistency: Professional cleaners follow standardised processes, ensuring a consistent level of cleanliness for each guest.

– Equipment and supplies: They are equipped with the right tools and cleaning products, saving you the hassle of buying and storing them.

– Scalability: Professional services can meet the needs of multiple properties or properties with high turnover.


– Cost: Hiring professionals is a recurring expense that can impact your overall budget.

– Lack of control: You have less direct control over the process and may need to clearly communicate your expectations.

Manage the cleaning yourself:


– Cost savings: Cleaning yourself can save money, especially if you’re managing a small property.

– Personal attention: You have direct control over the cleaning process, ensuring it meets your standards and preferences.

– Flexibility: You can clean to your own schedule without relying on outside services.


– Time consuming: Cleaning can be time consuming, especially for larger properties or between successive guest stays.

– Skills and knowledge: Effective cleaning requires knowledge of appropriate techniques and products to avoid damage.

– Inconsistent quality: The quality of cleaning can vary depending on the time and expertise available. Ultimately, the choice will depend on factors such as property size, budget, time available and your desire for control. Many hosts find a balance by using professional services for deep cleaning and carrying out regular maintenance themselves.
