Streamline Vacation Rental Cleaning With Our New Cleanster Integration

Making sure vacation rentals are cleaned and prepared for guests before each check-in is, understandably, more than many hosts and property managers can handle on their own.

However, even with the help of cleaners, managing turnover can be a major headache. Between hiring service providers, scheduling jobs, and everything else that comes up, you might find that you need help managing your help.

Fortunately, there are tools that do just that. Learn how our latest partnership with Cleanster can help streamline your turnover operations to save you time and ensure your property always exceeds guest expectations.

What is Cleanster?

Imagine being able to put short-term rental turnover on autopilot.

That’s the promise behind Cleanster, which offers solutions to simplify every step of turnover management. From hiring service providers to tracking inventory, Cleanster’s platform and app provide a hassle-free and effective way to get your properties guest-ready.

What advantages does Cleanster offer?

Cleanster offers a number of features designed to help make your short-term rental turnover a breeze.

Marketplace of cleaners

Looking for a new cleaner? Gone are the days of posting a listing or searching for candidates online. With Cleanster, you can simply provide your property details to get started and begin receiving bids from over 35,000 service providers worldwide.

What’s more, Cleanster service providers are vetted, experienced, rated, and reviewed, so you can rest assured that your vacation rental is in good hands.

Cleaning scheduling and management

Cleanster’s benefits don’t stop once you’ve found your cleaners. Sync your Lodgify account and booking calendars with Cleanster to automate cleaning for the next 60 days. You can also set both primary and backup cleaners to make sure turnover is always covered.

What’s more, using the Cleanster app, cleaners can receive updates, report problems, track inventory, and respond to messages.

Photo checklists

Every vacation rental host knows there’s a difference between a clean property and a clean property. With Cleanster, you can ensure properties are always cleaned to your expectations with customizable photo checklists.

Cleanster’s photo checklists automatically pull your property photos from Lodgify, but you can also swap them out with other photos showing exactly how you want your property to be left. For example, if you like your towels to be folded a certain way, or your beds to be turned down just-so, a photo checklist is the perfect way to communicate that.


Worried about your cleaning instructions getting lost in translation? Worry no more with Cleanster’s auto-translation capabilities.

Cleanster enables you to auto-translate your cleaning checklist, in-app messages, and important notes for service providers who don’t speak the same language as you.

Remote access for cleaners

Cleanster helps you manage all aspects of your cleaning from afar—including letting cleaners into your property. Simply add your remote lock information to your property details to ensure cleaners always have the access they need.

So whether you’re working on something across town or laying on the beach, nothing gets in the way of a seamless turnover process.

Before and after photos

As nice as it is not to have to do everything yourself, seeing that a job’s complete with your own two eyes can bring great peace of mind. This is especially true for turnover, given that creating a great first impression for guests can set the tone for the entire stay.

Luckily, Cleanster enables service providers to upload shareable before and after photos and videos after completing a job. Quickly check that everything meets your standards before continuing on with your day!

How much does Cleanster cost?

Cleanster offers a free basic plan with access to its marketplace of cleaners and basic features, as well as more comprehensive plans starting at $3.99 per property. Visit Cleanster’s website or reach out directly for more information about what is included in their plans.
