“When we founded TurnoverBnB in 2016, we realized that solving the tricky
problem of in-unit cleaning would help support the maturation of short-term
rentals, and it’s been very gratifying to see our business grow alongside the
expansion of platforms such as Airbnb and Vrbo,” says Assaf Karmon, co-founder and CEO of TurnoverBnB.

concerns remain, which has driven many travelers toward vacation rentals in
lieu of conventional travel accommodations. With the supply of short-term
rental units having trouble keeping up with demand, services like ours - which
enable faster turnover of these units - are particularly timely, and we

TurnoverBnB says its current business is primarily in the United States and

The company is also looking to expand its services into the single-family
rental and multifamily sectors.
