In this article, we will be going over the details from our third-quarter infographic. Specifically, we will be discussing the vacation rental cleaning costs of a two-bedroom property in the United States. The data shown on the infographic is compiled from thousands of projects undergone on the TurnoverBnB Marketplace. Use the following insights to ensure that your Airbnb cleaning business remains competitive in your market.
As shown on the infographic, the national average for cleaning a two-bedroom property is $68.41. This price has seen a two percent increase from the second quarter of the year. As the number of bedrooms increases, the cost of cleaning increases as well. In this case, we see that there is a twenty-dollar increase in average price from one-bedroom to two-bedroom.
Understanding the national average cost of cleaning can give you an idea of where your prices fall on the spectrum. If you find yourself paying your Airbnb cleaners under the average, consider adjusting prices to ensure fair compensation. If your prices are considerably higher, you may need to lower them in order to remain consistent.
