Cleaning Business – Just What Is It About?

Back to Off Topic forum


Post time04:57 11-03-2009

A cleaning business is an industry that offers a way for busy people to keep their office or house spaces maintained regularly by hiring or outsourcing janitors or maids. A cleaning service can also be specialized to an area like cleaning blinds or carpet cleaning.

If you enjoy working with people and have a knack for a cleaning job well done, then the cleaning industry might just be right for you.  If you would like to have your own business that utilizes your organization skills, you can build your own cleaning services business.

Aside from your cleaning and organizing skills, you should also look into other areas such as your financial standing before you build your cleaning empire.  Although there is minimal capital requirement in this industry, you have to make sure that you will be able to obtain a bond and insurance. You might also need a reliable means of transport to get to your cleaning appointments on time.

The cleaning skills you have learned from your parents will be put to rigid testing in this industry. Aside from vacuuming and dusting, you will need to be efficient in cleaning specific areas of the house such as the kitchen, the bathroom, bedrooms, upholstery, windows, and for offices- cubicles and other machinery that the office may be using. You also would have to study the different cleaning requirements of each space that you clean up, and be aware of environment-friendly acts such as proper garbage disposal, trash segregation, and the use of “green” products.  All of these would make your cleaning company earn a good reputation.

The goal that you have for a cleaning service is to get clients in a regular contract with you.  With a contract, you are assured of regular cleaning jobs which mean steady profits for you.  Getting a contract should be your prime objective.  Whether you start part time or full time, and whether you clean homes or offices, you will earn more with a consistent, paying cleaning contract than one time deals.

Getting a contract for a year to three years would be beneficial for you in more ways than just a steady income.  When you are regularly cleaning for someone and you turn up quality work, then you would be creating a good reputation for your cleaning team.  If your clients like you, they are bound to refer you to their other business partners or acquaintances and you get more and more cleaning jobs without having to spend more on advertising and marketing.  Word of mouth is a strong marketing strategy and it comes cheap too.  

What’s more, a steady income would allow you to manage your finances better and you might just be able to expand your cleaning business in record time.  You will have the financial freedom to save up for newer tools and equipment and your clients will be happier and more impressed in the quality of your cleaning and the dedication you show for your work.

At House Cleaning London, we specialize in professional steam-heat extraction cleaning of any and all of your home carpets in the London area.  Professional carpet cleaning is offered as a stand-alone professional service or in conjunction with domestic, one-off and specialty cleaning services, and any combination of these services can be scheduled to take place during a single appointment. 

With our equipment and expertise, House Cleaning London is even able to professionally clean rare and delicate carpet fabrics like sisal, jude, rayon,wool and seagrass on-site.  Through extensive training of our carpet cleaning technicians and with a broad range of fully biodegradable carpet cleaning products at the ready, we are able to diagnose, treat, and remove almost any stain, helping make old carpets look new again. 

Our carpet cleaning methods rely on equipment of the highest quality: our Prochem carpet cleaning machines use the most advanced steam-heat extraction technology in removing dirt, dust and other unsightly and unhealthy particles from your carpets.  Upon arrival, our carpet cleaning technicians will pre-treat any stains to ensure the best possible results.  During the extraction process, steam-heat methods remove excess moisture on contact, along with dirt and grime.  This ensures you won’t be left with soaking wet or soggy carpets.  Not only does this allow for the best possible clean, it minimizes the risk of carpet or structural damage caused by high quantities of residual moisture.  With the use of a portable industrial-strength drying fan, our cleaning technicians can have your carpets traffic-ready in just a few short hours.  If necessary, our carpet cleaning technicians will provide you with shoe covers, and will place protective pads under any furniture, in order to better protect your carpets until fully dried.

If your carpet fabric is of rare or delicate make not able to withstand professional steam-cleaning, House Cleaning London also has a team of highly-trained dry-cleaning technicians, all capable of performing on-site dry-cleaning of carpets.  Our carpet dry-cleaning processes are tailor-made for carpets of delicate material, such as sisal, seagrass, jude or rayon, or expensive silk or hand-wrought carpets warranting extra-special care.  On contacting office support staff at House Cleaning London, we will inquire about the state of your carpets, their fabric and cost, and work with you to find the cleaning method most appropriate to your needs.

Regardless of the cleaning method used, House Cleaning London carpet cleaning technicians will move all large furniture as required, and return it to its original place following the cleaning.  House Cleaning London recommends the application of a stain protection solution, commonly known as Scotchguard, following any professional carpet cleaning.  All our cleaning technicians are equipped with a variety of stain protectors to suit every fabric type, and will perform a thorough application of stain protector upon request.  The use of a stain protector such as Scotchguard is known to improve the longevity of any carpet, and will dramatically increase the interval before another professional cleaning is needed.
