TIDY is the ultimate way to automate the cleanings of your rental property. It syncs with Airbnb or property management tools, automatically requests your cleaners for the job, helps you track, inspect, and organize everything remotely. TIDY ensures that there is always someone on the way to take care of the cleaning before your guests' arrival. TIDY is trusted by over 100,000 property managers in the US, rated 4.5 on Google, and has been around since 2013 using powerful AI to automate the cleaning industry.

How the Integration Works
- After you integrate, TIDY will pull all your listings from Hostaway to create them as properties in TIDY.
- When a new guest reservation appears on your Hostaway account, it is also automatically added to your "Reservations" tab within TIDY
- Now TIDY knows the reservation details and when to automatically book a cleaning between guest's check-in and check-out
- The turnover cleaning follows the instructions you set under "Automatic Booking"
- The Pros you already have listed under the "My Pros" section in the app each will have the opportunity to accept the job in the order you previously determined
- Once a Pro is assigned the job, they will receive your instructions, access the To-Do List (if you have one), and communicate with you through TIDY.
- TIDY will push the cleanliness status to Hostaway after each cleaning is done.
- Done! Now your property is ready for the next guest, without you having to worry about a single thing.
