2020 Airbnb Committing to the cleaning process is required for all listings 

Hosts who don’t agree to the COVID-19 safety practices, including the 5-step enhanced cleaning process, by 20 November 2020 may be unable to accept new reservations, have their listings suspended, or be removed from Airbnb. 

These practices require mask wearing, social distancing, and following the 5-step enhanced cleaning process.

Getting a highlight on your listing After you or a member of your hosting team commits to the cleaning process, your listings will get a highlight to let guests know that you’re committed to clean.

How do I know if my host has committed to the five-step cleaning process?

Hosts who commit to the enhanced cleaning process will have a callout on their listing – just look for the sparkle icon. For more details on the rigorous, five-step cleaning process that hosts are committing to 

This is a new evolution in Airbnb's safety standards, and we've asked all hosts* to commit to these new practices by 20 November 2020.

What is Airbnb’s 5-step enhanced cleaning process?

The 5-step cleaning process is a set of cleaning practices that all hosts are required to follow between guest stays, in addition to their local laws and guidelines. The process is based on Airbnb’s cleaning handbook, which was developed in partnership with experts in an effort to curb the spread of COVID-19.

From your account, you can go to Performance > Cleaning to download the full cleaning handbook and find more resources, training, and custom cleaning checklists.



Step 1: Prepare

Proper preparation can help you and your team clean more efficiently and more safely. Be 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, and wear a mask and gloves while cleaning

Step 2: Cleaning

Cleaning is when you remove dust and dirt from surfaces such as floors and worktops. Be sure to:

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

Step 3: Sanitise

Sanitising is when you use chemicals to reduce the number of bacteria on surfaces such as doorknobs and TV remotes. Be sure to:

  • Spray high-touch surfaces in each room with an approved disinfectant spray
  • Let the disinfectant sit 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 Performance > Cleaning. Be sure to:

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

Step 5: Reset

To help prevent cross-contamination, it's important to finish cleaning and sanitising a room before replacing items for the next guest. Be sure to:

  • Wash your hands and replace gloves before replacing guest supplies, linen, and cleaning kits
  • Safely dispose of or wash cleaning supplies and protective gear
  • Not re-enter a room once it’s been sanitised
  • Empty and/or clean your equipment (e.g., vacuum cleaner, microfibre cloths) between each turnover
