As a short-term rental cleaner or host, it is important that you stay up-to-date on the latest trends in Airbnb cleaning costs to ensure that you are making wise financial decisions. Using data compiled from completed projects on TurnoverBnB in Q2 2020, we have created the following infographic:
The average price for vacation rental cleaning for a one-bedroom property across the nation is nearly fifty dollars. As the number of bedrooms increases, the price for vacation rental cleaning begins to rise dramatically. With two bedrooms, the cost of Airbnb cleaning rises to approximately seventy dollars, and with three bedrooms, the price is about 92 dollars.
Highest & Lowest Costs
Highlighted on the infographic are the states with the highest and lowest costs of short term rental cleaning. The top 3 highest-cost states are Nevada at $68.64, New Jersey at $69.36, and Hawaii at $76.70 (assuming a 1- bedroom average). While not directly correlated, these states also trend toward the top of the cost of living ranking in the United States.
The states with the lowest cost of vacation rental cleaning are New Mexico at $41.74, Kentucky at $40.40, and Georgia at $40.24. If you run your Airbnb cleaning service in any of these states, you now know how you compare in terms of price relative to other states throughout the country. If your prices stray far away from these statewide averages, you may want to consider altering them in order to accommodate and compete.
The average cost of vacation rental cleaning has remained relatively constant throughout the past year. While the average cost has remained nearly constant, there are some spikes in price during high-demand months in the year. Because of this, it is common that there are rises during December and August.
Whether you’re a superstar host or an accomplished short-term rental cleaner, keeping track of the cost of vacation rental cleaning can assist you as you continue on with your Airbnb or Airbnb cleaning service. If you were surprised by these prices, consider adjusting yours to more easily accommodate your customers or gain an advantage over the competition.
