Magic Helpers follows Airbnb's 5-step enhanced cleaning process in addition to any local laws or guidelines.

The 5-step cleaning process is a set of cleaning practices that all Hosts are required to follow between guest stays, in addition to following their local laws and guidelines.

Step 1: Prepare
Proper preparation can help you and your team clean more efficiently and more safely. Make sure to:

  • Ventilate the space before and during cleaning, when possible
  • Use disinfectants approved by your local regulatory agencies for use against COVID-19
  • Always read the directions and warnings on your cleaning products carefully
  • Wash or disinfect your hands

Step 2: Clean
Cleaning is when you remove dust and dirt from surfaces, such as floors and countertops. Make sure to:

  • Sweep, vacuum, dust, and/or mop areas before sanitizing
  • Wash dishes and laundry at the highest heat setting possible
  • Wipe down hard surfaces with soap and water

Step 3: Sanitize
Sanitizing is when you use chemicals to reduce the number of bacteria on surfaces such as doorknobs and TV remotes. Make sure to:

  • Spray high-touch surfaces in each room with an approved disinfectant spray
  • Let the disinfectant stand for the length of time specified on the product label
  • Allow the surface to air-dry

Step 4: Check
To access custom cleaning checklists, go to Insights > Cleaning. Make sure to:

  • Refer to the best practices in each room-by-room checklist to make sure that all areas are cleaned and sanitized between each stay
  • Share these best practices with your hosting team and cleaning professionals

Step 5: Reset
To help prevent cross-contamination, it's important to finish cleaning and sanitizing a room before replacing items for the next guest. Make sure to:

  • Wash your hands before replacing guest supplies, linens, and cleaning kits
  • Safely dispose of or wash cleaning supplies and protective gear
  • Don’t re-enter a room once it’s been sanitized
  • Clean your equipment between each turnover
