Your cleaners need access to your Airbnb calendar so that they can see when the property is booked and when it is available for cleaning. This ensures that they do not accidentally schedule a cleaning during a guest's stay, which could cause problems for both you and the guest. In addition, having access to the calendar allows your cleaners to schedule their work in advance and ensure that the property is always clean and ready for the next guest.
One potential challenge with basic Google Calendar sharing is that it does not allow for real-time updates to the calendar. This means that if a booking is made or canceled on Airbnb, it may not be reflected in the shared Google Calendar until the next time it is synced. This can lead to confusion and scheduling conflicts if your cleaners are not aware of the latest availability for the property.
Using a rental property management software with integration features can make it easier to share your Airbnb calendar with your cleaning crew. Many of these software platforms allow you to sync your Airbnb calendar and automatically send booking information to your cleaners.
After you have chosen a rental property management software, follow the instructions provided by the software to sync your Airbnb calendar. This will allow the software to automatically send booking information to your cleaning crew.
In order to ensure that your cleaning crew is prepared for each booking, it is important to have clear and detailed cleaning checklists and processes in place. These should outline the tasks that need to be completed before and after each guest stay, as well as any special instructions or requests from guests.
It is important to have clear and effective communication with your cleaning crew in order to ensure that the property is always clean and ready for guests. Use the messaging feature in your rental property management software or a separate communication platform to send booking information, cleaning instructions, and any other important messages to your cleaners.
