Benefits of a Cleaning Business
Read on to get an idea if the cleaning profession is for you.
Big demand, real job security.
The new American economy forces most upper-class citizens to outsource their domestic and business services. These services are booming, and running a residential cleaning business can be one of the most lucrative. People are short on time and energy. It just doesn't make sense for them to spend time scrubbing and dusting, but the cleaning must get done! That is why experts say this is truly a recession-proof business.
Start within two weeks.
You can start a service very quickly. Apply the right method, and you will be receiving calls within days. You will be giving estimates within a week. By the second week, you can have jobs. And within a few months, you will have a full-force cleaning company. Land the right clients and get the pay you want.
Unlimited income potential.
This business is scalable. Stay small, or grow it as big as you desire. The income potential is unlimited, but so is the freedom to structure the business so it works best for your lifestyle. Even a small-time, solo cleaner can earn far more with a cleaning service than most skilled-laborers earn.
Start on a shoestring budget.
You can start a cleaning service with very little upfront money. This is one of the few start-ups where a bank loan is not necessary. Entrepreneur Magazine calls it one of the best businesses to start. Believe it or not, you can even get up and running without owning a vacuum or a car...we did!
Be your own boss.
Ever walked into a business and thought to yourself, “I could do this better.” What's stopping you? Nothing compares to the pride and excitement of running your own cleaning business. Gain the freedom to make your own creative decisions, to pursue your own ideas. Call the shots, be in charge. This is what owning a business is all about.
Set your own hours.
smarter, not harder. Tap into your natural sense of leadership. When
people are empowered to take charge of their own schedule, they
enjoy their work more. Instead of viewing work as a burden, it is
embraced it as a meaningful part of life.
Get paid everyday.
No waiting two weeks (or even longer) for payday. Set up your business so hundreds of dollars roll into your account each day. Take charge of your finances. Reduce stress, pay your bills on time. Your personal accounting system will operate more efficiently, and be a whole lot more enjoyable.
Cleaning is simple work, not complicated.
Anyone willing to work can start a cleaning business. There is no steep learning curve, and struggling to stay on top of technological gadgets is not required. Some enjoy technical work. But in this business it is perfectly acceptable to leave high-tech activities to those who enjoy them.
A cleaning business is not very stressful.
This may be one of the best aspects of operating a professional cleaning service. Ordinary jobs can be emotionally draining. When work is piled on, it is frustrating and stressful. You feel you can never get ahead. In contrast, professional cleaning is relaxed (even calming) and the routine is simple and consistent. If you take on extra work, you will make extra pay.
Choose who you work with.
You know that one person who thrives on creating misery and melodrama everywhere they work? If you discover that doing a particular cleaning job (or working for a certain client) is more trouble than it's worth, it is easy to replace that job with a new one. Never again feel trapped in an undesirable situation.
Work close to home.
No long commute to work. Plenty of work exists near you. With some foresight and planning, you can arrange to work close to home. This helps reduce expenses, such as the cost of gas and vehicle maintenance. Organize your cleaning business so your commuting costs stay low.
Additional cleaning services.
additional or specialized services with your business to maximize
profits. For example, you might add venetian blind-cleaning, carpet
cleaning, green cleaning, office cleaning, window cleaning,
construction clean-up, and pressure washing. The rule of thumb is: If
something exists, chances are it will need cleaning on a regular
basis. Offer combined service, such as house cleaning with office
cleaning, or window cleaning with carpet cleaning. You might even
choose to offer all four.
We sincerely hope to help you realize your professional goals. We created these services to help people like you start your own cleaning business. Take control of your life and learn how to clean up big profits with your own cleaning service.
