About TIDY and TurnoverBNB Airbnb Cleaning Services


TIDY is powerful software that automates your property's cleanings and maintenance. You can easily find new cleaners or work with people you already love. TIDY is perfect for keeping your short-term rental in tip-top condition.

Once you've got your properties set up, you’ll be able to start booking cleanings. You can book one-time cleanings or recurring cleanings, depending on your needs. Once you integrate your TIDY account with Host Tools, TIDY will automatically create listings for all of your properties. When a new guest reservation is made on your Host Tools account, it will also be added to your "Reservations" tab within TIDY. TIDY knows the reservation details and can automatically book a cleaning between guests' check-in and check-out. The turnover cleaning will follow the instructions you set under the "Automatic Booking" section.

Another stellar feature is the "To-Do" lists. You can add custom tasks to these lists, and your cleaners will be sure to take care of them when they come to clean. This is perfect for things like taking out the trash, doing the dishes, or watering plants. The "To-Do" lists will automatically offer suggestions for cleanings, allow hosts to upload example photos, provide an estimate of how long each task will take, let hosts set priority levels of tasks, and require cleaners to upload before and after photos.

TIDY also offers the ability to schedule automated payments to both cleaners you found on and off of the app. 


TurnoverBnB helps owners easily manage and communicate with existing cleaners or use the TurnoverBnB marketplace to find professional vacation rental cleaners in their area. As a host, you have over 35,000 service providers bidding on cleaning your property. There is no shortage of options to find the perfect match for your rental. When you integrate your TurnoverBnB account with Host Tools, you can automatically text or email cleaners with new jobs, depending on what day of the week they are on. You can also auto-text cleaners about changes or guest cancellations

The platform also provides automated payments and records of completed jobs. Cleaners use their own app to receive updates, use checklists, report problems, track inventory, and send hosts messages.

Costs of TIDY and TurnoverBnB


TIDY is free for residential use up to 2 properties, then $10/ property/ month after that. The free package still includes home maintenance reminders, mapping tools, to-do lists, & job management. If hosting more than 100 short-term rentals, TIDY will work with you to create custom pricing. It is an excellent tool for both new and experienced short-term rental hosts. 


TurnoverBnB offers two standard plans. The first option is free for one listing. After that, it is $6 per listing (when billed annually, or $8/month if billed monthly).

Winner: Very Similar



TIDY offers extremely sophisticated "to-do" lists for cleaners. The software allows hosts to include photos that show cleaners exactly what the host is looking for. Plus, it provides estimates of how long individual tasks will take, allows hosts to prioritize jobs, requests before and after photos from cleaners, and more.


TurnoverBnB's checklist includes options for keeping track of inventory, estimates of how long your cleaning will take, and an overview of past and upcoming cleanings.

Winner: TIDY

Mobile App


At the time of publication, TIDY does not have a mobile app.


TurnoverBnB offers a free mobile app for both Apple and Android users. A mobile app makes managing your short-term rental remotely that much easier. Plus, TurnoverBnB offers an app for cleaners, so you both can communicate on the go.

Winner: TurnoverBnB

Stand-By Cleaners


TIDY's software automatically places cleaners on standby in the event that the original cleaner does not show up. This is a great option for preventing guests from showing up to an unclean apartment.

Host Tools Built-In Cleaner Management Features for Airbnb Cleaning Services

If you only have one, or a couple of cleaners that are available on consistent days of the week, you will probably only need to use Host Tools' built-in cleaner management features

With Host Tools, you can automatically text or email cleaners with new jobs, depending on what day of the week they are on. You can also auto-text cleaners about changes or guest cancellations. 

Additionally, you're able to create a turnover calendar URL so your cleaners can see all scheduled cleanings at a glance. With our multi-user feature, your cleaners can see the upcoming reservations and any notes about the booking. However, if you have a lot of properties to manage, integrating your Host Tools account with TIDY or TurnoverBnB can be extremely useful. 

Overall, both TIDY and TurnoverBnB are great options for short-term rental hosts looking for Airbnb cleaning services. They both offer similar features, such as checklists, synched calendars, and the ability to integrate with Host Tools. However, TIDY does have some unique features, such as standby cleaners and more sophisticated to-do lists. Therefore, if you are looking for a cleaning service that offers a little bit extra, TIDY may be the best option for you. However, if you are simply looking for a reliable and easy-to-use cleaning service, TurnoverBnB is a great choice. Whichever option you choose, you can be sure that you are getting a quality cleaning service to help take care of your short-term rental.
