Starting a cleaning business can be an exciting venture, but the cleaning industry is very competitive. If you’ve ever considered starting a cleaning business, now is the time! With these simple steps and by using these easy-to-follow tools, we’re sure that you’ll have all the information necessary for taking that first step into entrepreneurship. Let’s get started.
There are several things to consider before starting any cleaning business.
1) Employees will need to be hired for cleaning duties. Even if the cleaning tasks are outsourced only part-time, it is important that there are people who actually clean the premises so you don’t get in trouble with your clients.
2) There must also be someone in charge of finances and bookkeeping so that cleaning businesses remain profitable. Some cleaning businesses outsource this function to another company or hire an employee with these qualifications. However, because there are many tax issues associated with running a cleaning business, it’s best for one person to stay responsible for all bookkeeping matters.
3) A cleaning business may need a customer service department that deals with any complaints or issues that arise from cleaning services. Many cleaning businesses outsource this function as well, but since most cleaning businesses clean commercial spaces, it is best to have one contact person so clients know who they should speak with if there are problems.
4) If the cleaning business deals with both residential and commercial spaces, it’s important to keep separate files for each type of cleaning job. There will likely be different cleaning procedures used in each case and it’s easiest if all records are kept separately. This can easily be outsourced as well, but many cleaning companies would prefer to deal only with bookkeeping matters and not clean their own premises as well.
5) If the cleaning business is a cleaning franchise it may be more profitable to use cleaning equipment and cleaning products from one company. Using cleaning supplies from another company could confuse customers about who actually cleaned the commercial space they see every day. They might think that you used cheaper cleaning supplies or just didn’t do as good of a job as usual if you don’t offer the same cleaning supplies as other cleaning companies.
6) To prevent costly mistakes, it’s best to work hard on your marketing efforts before starting a cleaning business. Many companies hire marketing experts to bring their products and services to market successfully without spending too much money by hiring an expert to help with these issues right away can make a big difference in how successful a new cleaning business will be.
