Swimming precautions

Pools are a great draw for guests—but can also present a safety risk. Exact requirements for offering a property that includes a pool vary depending on your area, but here are a few simple recommendations to help keep you and your guests safe:

  • Keep rescue equipment available and easily accessible
  • Ensure your pool has a fence and a gate that closes securely
  • Add pool rules to your house manual, and make sure your guests read and agree to them

Elevator safety

If you have an elevator in your single-family home, or if you’re considering installing a residential elevator, you may have already heard about safety guidance from the Consumer Safety Product Commission (CPSC). But in case you haven’t, they issued an advisory on how to protect against gaps within residential elevators in single-family homes or villas.

From the CPSC advisory:

If you have an elevator in your home or in your vacation rental, make sure that the gap between doors is no more than 4 inches deep. If you are uncertain of the measurement or are otherwise concerned about the safety of the elevator, lock the elevator itself in an unusable position, or lock all access doors to the elevator.

CPSC urges consumers to have a qualified elevator inspector examine their home elevator for this dangerous gap and other potential safety hazards, inspecting to the latest ASME A17.1, Safety Code for Elevators and Escalators. Dangerous gaps can be made safer by placing space guards on the back of the exterior (i.e., hoistway) door or installing an electronic monitoring device that deactivates the elevator when a child is detected in the gap.

CPSC also urges consumers to contact their elevator manufacturer or an elevator installer to obtain these critical safety devices to address this hidden hazard. Elevator installers should never allow any gap greater than 4 inches deep to exist in an elevator entryway.

By listing your space on Airbnb, you’re certifying that you’re following applicable laws and regulations.

Safety devices

We encourage Hosts to install smoke and carbon monoxide alarms, test them regularly, and make sure listing descriptions are up to date.

If you don’t already have carbon monoxide alarms, eligible Hosts with an active listing can get a self-contained, battery-powered, combination smoke and carbon monoxide alarm at no cost through our Home Safety page (terms and conditions apply).

Check your local regulations, which may require that you have more than one working smoke and carbon monoxide alarm installed in your listing—for example, some cities require one in every room. Get more info about responsible hosting

Guests can filter their searches to include only spaces that have carbon monoxide alarms, so it’s a good idea to make sure your listing is updated with your latest details. Update your amenities
