Is a cleaning business the right business for you

Is a Cleaning Business the Right Business for You?

The needed qualifications depend, of course on what type of cleaning service you decide to start. But remember that for any type of service business, you need a determination to make the business a success, the willingness to please the customer and of course the dedication to provide a thorough cleaning job.


Another vital requirement for both the owner and the employees of any type of cleaning service is honesty. This is very important as it forms the basis for trust between the client and the service provider. Remember that you will be working in other people’s homes and therefore your clients should be able to leave their homes in “your hands” without any problem at all.

Types of Cleaning Business

A maid service is the simplest form of business in terms of necessary cleaning skills. Others like carpet cleaning businesses, Janitorial services and other niche cleaning operations usually requires the use of specialized equipment and cleaning solutions. A maid service usually caters to the residential market while a janitorial service caters to the commercial market. Starting a janitorial service will require additional research on your target market and in hiring specialized staff from the outset itself.

Administration –managing the business

Besides carrying out the work, it is also important to have some basic business skills for a cleaning service operator. This means understanding the administrative requirements of running a company, managing time efficiently and building relationships with employees and customers. Initially you may start off by yourself and by hiring some part-time employees. As you expand, it will be necessary to hire specialist staff for specific roles such as an Accountant, marketing executives and customer service representatives.

Another very important consideration before you actually start your cleaning business is making sure that this kind of work is right for you. Physically you need to be in good shape. Cleaning is pretty hard work. Good customer relation skills along with basic office and accounting skills are needed.

Make sure you research all aspects of the cleaning service business: Customer service, advertising, taxes, employees, insurance and bonding, pricing and how to do a professional job. Cleaning professionally and simply cleaning your own home is entirely different. It will take time in order to learn how to do a professional job. A client expects to find their home spotless when they pay for your services.
