Start a Cleaning Service

Start a cleaning service

When you start a cleaning service, your hours are pleasant and the work is easy. You'll have less of the mental stress associated with having a "regular" job. Build your own financial security and pay your bills when you start a cleaning service of your own.


When you start a cleaning service you will:

  • Always have as much work as you want.
  • Enjoy excellent pay.
  • Love the short working days.


With a cleaning service your free time expands and so does your bank account. Your hours are short so you have plenty of free time to structure your life the way you want. You gain independence and freedom because you are running your own business, setting your own hours and defining your own professional goals.

People in the service industry always do well regardless of economic fluctuations. You create your own job security by attracting clients who value your service. And when you deliver quality service you can have as much work as you want. That means that you are in control of your own economic destiny. This is a recession proof job.


Now is the ideal time to be self-employed and reap the financial and personal benefits of being your own boss. Nothing beats the financial security you gain from being in charge of your income. In the chaos of the current economy, even employees who feel relatively secure in their current positions are being advised by career counselors to be always on the lookout for a new job. Start a cleaning service business and you'll discover how satisfying it feels to be your own boss.

Starting a cleaning business, but aren't sure which type of cleaning service may be right for you? We can help you get the information you need to make the right choice. It's easy to start a cleaning service and maintain it, but there's a lot to consider when you're just getting started. You can start a house, office, window and carpet cleaning business. We have experience in all of these, and know the best resources available.


  • Do you need to start making money right away?
  • Do you want high quality cleaning tips?
  • Do you need inexpensive marketing techniques that really work?
  • Don't know how to bid on a job?


Depending on your needs, you may choose a certain cleaning niche to meet those needs. A housecleaning business is the quickest and cheapest to start. A window cleaning business is seasonal and you work outdoors. An office cleaning business has different hours and can be a good second job. A carpet cleaning business is the most complicated and expensive to start, but can command the best profits. It is wise to think about the differences in advance as you learn about starting a cleaning service business.
