get an idea if the cleaning profession is for you, please read about
the benefits of starting
your own cleaning business. This list of benefits will help you to decide if a cleaning service business is a good fit for you.
Big Demand, real job security.
The cleaning industry has grown on an average of 6.6% per year since 2009. The commercial cleaning industry is worth $78 billion. The cleaning sector has been one of the most consistently successful in recent history!
More and more households & businesses are turning to contract cleaning to help create more time and energy in their busy lives & schedules. There has been an upward trend even with middle-class customers as time demands have grown. They simply do not have the time for the cleaning. It is no longer a luxury, it is a necessity.
It is a fast business to start, you can be up and running (and making cashflow) within one month. You can be making an excellent living in your first year in business. Little start-up equipment is needed and what equipment is necessary can be leased or purchased (used) quite easily. You do not need expensive office space. It is much faster than many other popular start-up business ideas such as a food franchise or oil lube shop. It literally requires a fraction of the start-up resources as one of those businesses. If you start out in residential cleaning, you can get started with a vacuum and some cleaning supplies.
Start on a shoestring budget
You can start a cleaning business with little upfront money and easily grow it over time without any investment capital. When I started I had no money to invest and just grew my cleaning company one job at a time. This is just one of the reasons Entrepreneur Magazine calls this business one of the best start-ups. With all the Apps and online tools that are now available, it is even easier to start cheaply & quickly!
Be your own boss
Absolutely my favorite reason for owning a cleaning service business. Nothing quite compares to the pride and excitement of calling the shots and being in charge of your own financial destiny. This is what owning a business is all about, right?
Grow your cleaning company as big as you want. Many new entrepreneurs have built up their cleaning service companies into million dollar businesses. Six figures are totally doable even as a small operation. You can keep it small or grow your cleaning service over a lifetime.
a cleaning franchise opportunity? Franchise
cleaning companies only
account for 10% of total revenues that take place within the cleaning
industry. Franchises are super expensive to start for the want-to-be
professional cleaner. Don't go into debt before you even get started.
They also have many legal restrictions that are difficult to get out

Set your own hours
This is a great benefit of owning your cleaning business. Take days off when you want and need to, no longer do you have to beg for time off. You can schedule time off without feeling guilty and you can get away when you need to for family or professional commitments & opportunities. When you're empowered to take charge of your own schedule you take more pride in the work you do, work becomes a healthy part of your life, instead of a burden.
Cleaning is honest work
Anyone can learn to clean. Anyone can learn to run a small business. Anyone can succeed if they work hard. You can start a cleaning business! It is good honest work that is in demand.
Work close to home
All cleaning services are local businesses. No long commute, no commute at all if you prefer. For most of you, there is plenty of work near you, possibly right in your own neighborhood. You can be close to home and your family allowing for more high-quality time with loved ones. Even if you do have to travel to clean, you can work the expense into the price. At least you are being reimbursed for the commute. But 90% of you can find most of your work right in your local area.
Add any of a dozen additional cleaning services to your initial service and really maximize your profits. You can add blind cleaning, carpet cleaning, office cleaning, window cleaning, construction clean-up, move in/ move out, steam cleaning -- if it exists, chances are it will need cleaning on a regular basis. You can mix house cleaning with office cleaning or window cleaning with carpet cleaning or offer any combination you like. You can phase in additional services as you grow the business.
