New Guesty Partner Doinn Reveals the 4 Reasons You Should Outsource Your Cleaning Operations

June 10, 2019 |

Take a Load Off

With so many tasks on the plate of the property manager, anything we at Guesty can do to lighten the load is a huge plus. That’s why we keep adding new vendors to our growing Marketplace, all capable of efficiently handling specific aspects of your operations.

Doinn, a cleaning service provider that has recently joined our Marketplace, integrates seamlessly with Guesty so that their cleaners are aware of all of your upcoming reservations and the needs of each incoming party.

Here’s what they have to say about the benefits of outsourcing your cleaning operations:

  1. Standard Operating Procedures

Cleaning a rental property is very different from the cleaning of any other property. It not only needs to be clean, it has to look clean, like no one has been there before, and every single detail is important.

Checklists are a great tool, but don’t compare to the Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) implemented by the professional cleaning services, especially those in the hospitality industry.

  1. Technology Times

The vacation rental industry is becoming more and more technologically oriented and therefore simplified.

In the same way we don’t advertise our vacation rentals in the classifieds anymore, there is no reason to keep requesting or managing cleaning services through SMS, email or excel sheets.

Top cleaning service providers implement advanced technology into their operations to minimize errors and miscommunication.

 

  1. Time is Money

An in-house cleaning crew may seem like a good way to save money, but if you step back and examine the time you spend on staff management, from the recruitment stage to training and supervising, you’ll likely find that employing your own team is a major drain on time and resources.

When you leave cleaning and maintenance tasks to the professionals, you have more time to spend on your other business operations and, most importantly, giving your guests a 5-star worthy experience.

  1. Money’s Good Too

Converting your cleaners’ salaries from fixed costs to variable costs adapts very well to the seasonality of the tourism industry, which is the primary reason most hotels outsource their cleaning services. This way, you’re only paying cleaners when you’re getting paid yourself.

Plus, professional vendors have access to cleaning products that are not only more efficient, but environmentally friendly. Having these costs included in the service, will save you money.

 

What Can’t Be Automated

At Guesty, we know that your time is money, and that’s really the driving force behind our integrations. When your software platforms are all connected and communicating with one another, you’re spared hours of dealing with tedious logistics and free to focus on what can’t be automated – adding a human touch to your guests’ experiences.
