Kindred coordinates professional cleaning before and after each Kindred stay to make the experience effortless, consistent, and trustworthy for both parties. Being able to count on a professional cleaning means members don’t have to stress about cleaning their own home before leaving on a trip, and allows us to ensure they can return to a sparkling home that’s cleaner than they left it.

Cleaning fees are paid for by the guest - this covers two cleanings: the check-in and check-out cleaning. 100% of cleaning fees are passed to our vendors (or to the host if they opt to use their own preferred cleaner). When you're swapping, you pay for cleaning as well. You cover your host’s home cleaning and your guest will cover yours.

For home cleanings, Kindred leverages our network of vetted preferred cleaners. We both source and onboard cleaners ourselves, as well as partner with professional cleaning services.

It also means that when arriving on a Kindred stay, members know the home will be cleaned and ready for them with fresh guest linens, each and every time.

When preferred by a member, we are also happy to work with their existing housecleaner for the cleans at their home. If you have a house cleaner you love, just let us know! You can read more about the process of using your own cleaner here.
