5 Surprising benefits of a cleaning business
What reasons are there to start a cleaning business? Well, you can start up without breaking the bank, and with a little planning your startup money will go far.
You can schedule your own hours and work close to home. You get paid often, and if you run an outstanding service, there is always available work.
As cleaning business owners, we are free to manage our own professional and financial goals. We have freedom to choose our own path, feel the wind in our wings.
To work for yourself is to know the deep satisfaction of taking charge of your life.
1. No limits on income potential
Because demand is always high, the cleaning business is a low-risk startup. Homeowners, business owners—anyone with vested interests in property—are motivated to maintain their expensive investments.
High-ticket items such as flooring, carpeting, and appliances must be regularly cleaned and maintained to meet warranty requirements.
For your staff, this means job security.
When employees feel secure about their own financial future, they naturally help build a healthy company in which there are no limits on income potential.
2. Runs itself
Delivering excellent service is one of the keys to building a cleaning business. But it isn’t everything. Doing work that consistently outshines the competition is just as important.
The surprise is that it isn’t difficult to distinguish yourself from the others and deliver outstanding work on a regular basis.
The truth? Most companies will not go the extra mile. If yours does, doors will open where you least expect them to.
Maximize this by learning the following tricks.
First, set in place a few simple, proven systems. Second, ensure that staff are well-trained and incentivized.Third, maintain a healthy and positive company.
As staff skills improve, efficiency on the job increases and profits rise. Tasks take less time. Customers gain satisfaction with your service.
Gaining loyal clients does more than help build a solid foundation for your business. It saves time and money and creates a business that practically runs itself.
3. Not high tech
Over time, few human endeavors have changed less than cleaning. There is no significant learning curve to understanding the basic job.
What has changed are the items to be cleaned and the way the job is done.
Computer equipment and other fine instruments, flooring and furniture materials, smart-houses with touch screens—specialty items require sensitive handling and care. However, learning how to best maintain high-tech equipment is not hard.
You can save your brainpower for learning how to operate your new smart phone or drive your new smart car. Cleaning generally does not produce anxiety.
On the contrary, professional cleaning is and ought to provide a healthy alternative to an overly high-tech, angst-inducing corporate workplace. All while providing a necessary service that pays well.
Many cleaning professionals are in the business precisely because it is not high tech and it is satisfying to do.
The result of a lack of a steep learning curve on the job?
Less stress. Less worry. In short, fewer reasons for job dissatisfaction, and more reasons to stick with the work and build a strong income from a job that is both integral and foundational.
4. Schedule your own work
Scheduling your own work hours is one of the most overlooked and under-appreciated benefits of a cleaning business.
To some degree, you are limited to work hours that are convenient for your clients.
Residential cleaners most often schedule work during the weekdays. Commercial or office cleaners work after-hours, when employees have left for the day.
However, even with restrictions imposed by your clients’ schedules, you are still in charge of setting your own hours of availability.
Setting your own hours means you can have whole days off when you really need them. Blocks of time for errands, shopping, taxiing the kids, or whatever you choose.
We’re all given the same 24 hours a day, and yet your time never feels like your own when you’re working for someone else’s dream.
Running your own cleaning business offers freedom to schedule work to fit your life, not the other way around.
You might start a cleaning service thinking that it’s a business with limits. That you won’t be able to grow it if you felt like it.
Nothing is further from the truth.Professionally—as a career—the cleaning business is scalable and expandable.
Continuous high demand drives the need for professional cleaning and maintenance teams. By learning how to systemize your business and scale it up, you can pick and choose your work.
The best part is, you can “grow as you go” and expand the business at your own pace, as you are able and ready.
You can work in the residential sector or do small office cleaning as a first phase. This sector will teach skills and build confidence for launching into a larger field. For instance, commercial or industrial cleaning, where the stakes are higher, and the income is greater.
Freedom in self-employment
Starting a cleaning service is affordable, there is not a dangerously steep learning curve. You can begin earning a good living wage quickly.
Think about this. We spend about one-third of our entire lives working. Why let work stifle you, when it can free you instead? Forging your own path of self-employment is a healthy alternative.
So the benefits are many, but perhaps the main benefit is that being your own boss can help you find freedom in every working day. And the days add up to a satisfying lifetime.
