The Importance of Cleanliness for Toronto Airbnb Homes
Survey after survey within the hotel and hospitality industry shows that cleanliness is one of the most important factor when selecting a hotel for travellers. This naturally applies to Airbnb homes.
As an Airbnb host in Toronto, having a clean home goes a long way towards getting that 5-star review from your guest, which in turn helps you bring more guests to your home. In fact, according to Airbnb, listings with 5-star cleanliness ratings receive 20% more bookings.
Airbnb’s Hosting Standard for Cleanliness
As an Airbnb host in Toronto, you have most likely seen Airbnb’s hosting standards that lists cleanliness as being one of the nine items listed. According to their hosting standard, to make your listing shine, you want to “clean every room that your guests can access during their stay and pay special attention to the bathroom and kitchen”. You also want to “take care of the small things that show extra consideration: dust the bookshelves, wipe the mirrors, and empty the wastebasket”.
Within your Airbnb listing, you have the option of charging a separate cleaning fee on top of your room rate. The Airbnb cleaning fee is a flat fee, so no matter how long your guests stay, it is a one time charge. The longer the stay in the Airbnb home, the smaller the impact of the cleaning fee towards the total costs, so this is prefered by some Airbnb hosts as it discourages one-night stays.
It is up to each Airbnb host whether you clean your home yourself or hire a professional cleaner to do the cleaning for you.

Working with Katie has been the best 'business' experience I have had. … We are AirBNB hosts, and can count on her to take over when we are not at home. I don't know what we would do without her."
I run a busy AirBnB property, and it has meant the world to me to have Katie's team support me with not only cleaning, but taking on extra tasks like checking in a guest or putting out the garbage if I have to be away."
