You can require guests to pay a Refundable damage deposit.

Refundable damage deposit:
A refundable damage deposit is an amount collected by you to cover any potential damage caused by a guest during their stay. Once the stay is over, the deposit will automatically refund back to the guest (less any assessed damage charges, if any) after a pre-selected number of days.
