STR Cleaning Terms and Conditions

Navigating the treacherous waters of life without terms and conditions is like trying to assemble furniture without instructions – a chaotic endeavor that leaves everyone confused and possibly missing a few screws. It’s the difference between embarking on a road trip with a GPS and attempting to reach your destination armed only with a vague sense of direction from a well-meaning squirrel. So, let’s embrace the hilarity of existence and throw some terms and conditions into the mix – because in this wild ride called life, a little structure goes a long way, and who knows, it might just save us all from a collision with the unexpected!

What happens if a guest causes damage to my home during their stay?

Upon entering a property, our team does a walk-through to assess the condition of the unit after guest departure. We use a software called CompanyCam to capture every aspect of a job, including photo reporting and video documentation, that allows instant annotation and reporting back to our office. With any documented damage, we share the incident with the homeowner, including collected photos and videos, so they can submit a damage report to the vacation rental company the guest rented the property through, i.e. VRBO, AirBnB, Evolve, etc.

If our team can repair the damage, we’ll discuss with you the repair needed, send a quote, and upon approval, will make any necessary repairs.

Can the same person clean my property so they get familiar with it?

To meet growing demand, our dedicated housekeepers work extensive hours to ensure homes are cleaned and prepared for guests. In an ideal scenario, we would assign the same housekeeper to specific homes, which often happens when a cleaner visits a particular property multiple times within a month.

However, considering the substantial number of homes we manage, we cannot guarantee that the same housekeeper will clean a property each time. Nevertheless, you can expect that each cleaner is an integral part of a close-knit team that maintains regular communication and shares a commitment to maintaining our high standards.

Can guests rent long-term, e.g. monthly?

Guests can rent your property for as long as you allow; however, we strongly recommend mid-stay cleans every two weeks of a long-term stay to maintain the property’s cleanliness and do a walk-through. We also recommend that long-term guests are thoroughly screened before their stay.

Can you take out guest trash?

Yes, we can remove guest trash as part of our cleaning services. However, please note that we do not provide trash collection services ourselves. The property must have trash service or trash receptacles available. For your convenience, local trash providers can be found here: Grand County Preferred Service Providers. Please be aware that excessive trash will incur additional cleaning fees. This helps ensure a clean and welcoming environment for your guests and our team.
