The concept of cleaning isn’t something new…it’s been around for a long time and an essential part of household chores since the caveman days. The vacation rental industry, on the other hand, has had HUGE changes recently.
A vacation rental cleaning franchise is the nearly perfect response to the rising demand for prompt professional cleaning services performed at a strict schedule among vacation rental and property management franchises such as Airbnb® and other short-term rentals.
Thanks to the emergence of Airbnb®, VRBO®, and other tech platforms, it’s growing at double-digit growth in inventory every year and is now valued at over $200 BILLION (yes, you read that right!).

About Vacation Rental
To give you more perspective, it took Hilton Hotels 100 years to get to 750,000 rooms across 100 countries. Airbnb® went over a million rooms in 190 countries in one tenth of that time. That fast enough for you?
Vacation rental isn’t just a fad for two reasons:
- Bloomberg did a study that showed that those who indicated they “preferred traditional hotels” to vacation rentals dropped in half after those guests had stayed in a vacation rental for the first time.
- More than 75% of Gen Z travelers reported that they have stayed in a vacation rental at least once.
Once people have experienced a vacation with more freedom and luxury, be it a little thing like having a kitchen or a big thing like having a separate living space apart from a bedroom, it’s hard to go back to traditional hotel rooms. Expectations have shifted, and so has the revenue.
These are the ideal circumstances to start a vacation rental cleaning business or, better yet, join an established vacation and short-term rental cleaning franchise. The best vacation rental franchises of 2020 are here to stay, and the MaidThis Franchise is ready to follow suit. Why not join us in time for 2021?
About Residential Cleaning Services
More than 90% of the cleaning market is serviced by small owner-operators. They are small, in part, because they often provide “good enough” service, but not anything that customers rave about. Worse, these owner-operators make life harder for themselves through poor use of technology, inconsistent marketing, and an uneven quality of cleaning.
In short – most small local cleaning company owners don’t have much experience in terms of marketing or business systems.
“Alright enough with the fancy stats.
What does this mean for ME?”
Millions of new vacation rentals have popped up in record time. This is BRAND NEW pool of customers who need cleaning services. Who is going to provide it for them?
Vacation rental hosts now want HOTEL-STANDARD cleaning, and regular cleaning companies just aren’t cutting it.
Hotel-standard cleaning has never been in higher demand (and growing every year!). Hosts want to use their time adding additional inventory or hosting their guests, not doing cleanings.
Customers now want a tech-friendly, set-it-and-forget-it, convenient way to schedule. They have been trained by companies like Amazon to expect this level of service across multiple channels.
Most local cleaning companies are low tech and terrible at marketing. Only a little more than half of them even have websites. You can guess what they might answer to questions about google adwords, email open rate, and conversion numbers: nada.
When you combine these forces together...you’ve got yourself one heck of an opportunity. And that’s where MaidThis comes in.
With the MaidThis system, you’ll be able to leverage the most recent technological practices and ability to build remote teams to take advantage of this HUGE opportunity in a lean and cost-efficient way:
- Top of the line software tech and processes that we’ve learned by study (and plenty of trial-and-error)
- Systems to hire a GLOBAL team and manage them remotely (practice, not theory)
- Kick-ass marketing tactics that blow away the local cleaning competition (once again utilizing technology to create exponential growth)
- Specializing in the UNTAPPED vacation rental cleaning market (there’s no better time to get started)
Available US Territories
Are you in a market that perfect for a MaidThis Franchise? We’re currently offering franchise opportunities in the GREEN states below, but may be expanding to other states soon.
Fill Out The Form And Build Your Freedom:
Step 1: Tell Us About You
We want to get to know YOU better: what got you interested in this opportunity, why you want to get into entrepreneurship, why you think Windex is the best invention since sliced bread (just kidding), what you feel you bring to the table, and what your vision is for yourself and MaidThis.
Step 2: Learn About The Business
Next you’ll hop on a presentation call to provide you with an overview of the important parts of the business, industry, etc. This step allows you to get a better sense of the nuts and bolts of our systems, and will also allow our team to get to know you better.
If we both agree that this is a good fit, you’ll move onto Step 3.
Step 3: Read the FDD
We’ve all been guilty of clicking Accept because a legal document was TLDR at one point or another. But FDD is not a document you want to pass up. Hear us out: the Franchise Disclosure Document is a detailed overview of the anticipated investment costs of joining our residential & vacation rental management cleaning franchise and how much franchisees can be expected to pay.
Step 4: A Day In The Life
If you got to this point, you’re well on your way to becoming a full-fledged member of the MaidThis franchise community. You’ll get to shadow the existing operations team of a MaidThis franchise location and check out what you’d need to do day-in and day-out.
Step 5: Sign Agreement
We remember those school days when we were told bad things might go on our “permanent record.” But when we get to be adults, those “permanent record” days can be ones of real joy and excitement, like when you get to sign on the dotted line to become a franchisee and begin building a business with us. As we grow, so will you, and vice versa. We can’t wait to welcome you into the family!
Step 6: Build Your Future
If you’re diligent about making the most of the MaidThis franchise, let’s get this show on the road. When you keep your end of the bargain as part of a winning team and an established residential & Airbnb® cleaning franchise, hard work pays off from the get-go and in the long run!
Frequently Asked Questions
Only if you want to. One of the advantages of having a fully remote business is being able to office where you want — with the cost savings that go along with that choice. Want to work from your home office? Go for it. Want to open up an office location so you can work alongside your team in person? Totally fine!
You will be able to generate all the business you need by using technology and always have the means of email or telephone to communicate with your clients and staff. The choice is yours.
As is the case with many things in life, some kind of background in the industry certainly would help, but it is by no means necessary. MaidThis, like most franchises, has a set of procedures and systems that consistently work, and as long as you understand the whys and hows of that system, you’ll be able to competently run and grow your business.
On top of that, let us not forget that cleaning has become an essential industry, especially among Airbnb® and vacation rental hosts who are looking to defeat the competition and attract and impress guests amid the COVID-19 situation with a consistent standard of cleaning. In other words, now is the perfect time to get into the cleaning business, even if you are a novice with next-to-none experience in the cleaning industry or management.
We cannot just give you a ready-made formula on how to start a residential & Airbnb® cleaning business, but we can show you what the process was like for us when we started out. You’ll receive five days of training at our corporate headquarters in California. We mean business and we are on a prowl for like-minded individuals who are equally dedicated to hard work and business success.
While franchises have been around for some time, a fully remote franchise opportunity hasn’t really been possible until recent years. MaidThis provides just such an opportunity, and not just in any sector, but in one that is predicted to grow and thrive for many years.
This isn’t just an opportunity for you as an owner, but for those who will work for you. Having access to a global labor pool means that you can use market efficiencies to find great talent at fractions of the price you would have to pay in the United States.
And here is why joining the MaidThis Franchise is practically a fail-safe choice that will give you a competitive edge from the very start:
- MaidThis is the first U.S.-based short-term rental cleaning franchise in the US
