Start a cleaning business from home

Learn how to start a cleaning business from home.

This is a bit of a misnomer, since you will not actually be working from home, right? You have to be in someone's home (or office) to clean it. You can, though, operate a cleaning business out of your home, which is a nice thing to achieve. Eventually you can grow your cleaning business to the point of having employees do all the cleaning and you then can run the whole shebang from home.

The many benefits of working from home-

  • Save time on commuting
  • Save money on transportation
  • Save money on lunches
  • Expenses are deductible
  • More flexible schedule
  • Less stress & anxiety
  • Increased productivity
  • Removes employee conflicts
  • Closer relationship with family

Let's look at a few of the benefits of working at home.

Do you commute to work? We'll obviously, I do not have to tell how nice it would be not to! Eating out for lunch can really add up in cost, and it is really tempting to eat out, to get away from the work environment. If you eat out working form home, it is also a tax write off. Which leads us to the enormous benefit of deducting your business expenses against your taxes. Studies have shown that work at home employees are 20 - 30% more productive than in-house employees.

One of my favorite benefits is that I do not have to worry about not getting along with everyone at work. I get along with most people just fine, but there is always that one jerk that hates their life and/ or job and lives to make people miserable. Not an issue when you run your cleaning business form home.

What can do you from home with your cleaning service business?

  • Managing
  • Scheduling
  • Accounting
  • Paperwork
  • Networking
  • Marketing
  • Planning

Let's look at a few of these activities in more detail.

Marketing your cleaning business at home.
Using new digital technology such as the Internet you can now do much of your marketing from a computer in your house. You can create and manage posters, fliers and business cards from home. You can create and run a cleaning business website to promote your cleaning service online.

Accounting and scheduling from home-
With freely available software (sometimes even free of cost!) you can do all of your accounting and scheduling from your personal computer at home. You can use the Internet to do real time live accounting, taxes, scheduling and automated payments. You can get paid from your clients through your cleaning service website. You can even do your banking live online. The amount of time and energy that is saved is really noticeable once you get everything set up.

Working from home is one of the nicest benefits of starting a cleaning service business.
