Airbnb Cleaning Checklist App

At MadeComfy, our professional cleaners diligently follow a detailed checklist, ensuring our short-term rentals match the high standards guests expect. We understand that cleaning for short-term rentals is vastly different from a typical house clean.

When done right, it leads to five-star reviews and boosts bookings, as properties gain a reputation for outstanding cleanliness. But it's more than just cleanliness; it's about creating an environment that exceeds guest expectations, encouraging repeat visits.

To help you achieve this, we've developed an interactive cleaning checklist you can use on any device. Forget about old PDFs, Excel files, or Word documents. This is your handy, pocket-sized Airbnb cleaning checklist app, ready for use anytime, anywhere.
