What Do I Need To Start a Cleaning Business

Back to Off Topic forum


Post time01:11 16-09-2010

Starting a cleaning business will never be that hard if you know what to do and carefully follow them. Your expected profit will depend on how big you want your business to be. You can hire a person operation where you set up at home and service areas close to where you reside. You can also establish a commercial office and hire people to work for you.

•    Decide the exact type of cleaning services you’re about to offer. Are you going to make beds? Vacuum? Mop? Or wax floors? You can also decide to specialize like cleaning carpets only, or cleaning suspended ceilings only.

•    Give your home cleaning a respective price. You can get some ideas from your competitors by checking your telephone directory and the classified ads section in your local newspapers for cleaning businesses. Call them up and act like a prospective client. From then, you can find out the cleaning services they offer and how much they charge.

•    Give your business an ear-catching name. In doing so, it is essential to provide your business with accurate name. Just don’t use the “cleaning service” since it its over done by many house cleaning businesses.

•    Take time to gain knowledge about your community regulations.

•    Search for your first client and target as many clients as you can. You can advertise your cleaning business with your family, relatives, neighbors, colleagues, and friends. At first, it will take patience to spend most of your time and money getting paying clients.

This is just a start so don’t relax yet. When everything is settled, it is helpful that you study a course that will give you a background on how to manage your business in terms of growth, insurance accounting, taxes, better marketing strategies and more.
