Safety was already a trending topic in the industry before this year, with managers paying more attention to physical safety features like smoke alarms, carbon monoxide detectors, and fire extinguishers.
The global pandemic has shifted the travel landscape, bringing safety and property condition front and center for managers, guests and owners, municipalities and staff. In fact, over 84% of managers we surveyed are taking steps to improve their safety and maintenance procedures over the course of the next year, with 13% considering certifying rentals through independent safety programs.
Based on a review of thousands of safety inspections on Breezeway's platform, we have compiled this guide for property and guest safety. Note, this checklist focuses on steps to ensure basic safety and assumes additional procedures will be followed to routinely inspect the quality of the property.
