The Correct Steps To Starting Your Own Cleaning Service In 7 Days
Do you clean your house so well that you could start your own house-cleaning business? Do you want to be your own boss?
Decide whether you want a side business to generate extra cash each month or if you want a full-time, house-cleaning business. For years women have been successfully using house-cleaning work as a part-time way to make extra cash. If you are looking for a small gig on the side, start out with one or two clients to service each week. A brief cleaning may offer the basics: dusting, vacuuming and mopping.
If you decide to make it your full-time job, your house-cleaning business can offer a more in-depth cleaning in addition to the standard dusting and vacuuming. A list of extras include: blind cleaning, window washing, polishing silver and mildew removal. The additional items will require more time at each job, and the rate should reflect this. Whether you run a part-time or full-time business, you will have to accurately predict how much time it will take you to complete each home. It is best if you have a standard set of services to offer, making your time calculation easier.
The next thing you need to do is research the market. What is the going rate for housecleaning services in your area? Do you want to charge the going rate or come in a little lower? Your first instinct might be to come in lower to draw business, but be cautious. While the start-up costs for the cleaning business are low, you be driving to each location and the cost of gas is significant, not to mention your time. Which days you are willing to work? If it is part-time, you may only offer Saturday morning cleaning or one evening a week.
If you are doing housecleaning as a full-time job, you may still be able to have weekends off if you could do all your cleaning during the week. Most of your clients will probably want you to clean their house while they are at work. Though it is an obvious suggestion to research the competition, many people skip this step. Look online at cleaning businesses. Call them and ask questions regarding price, services offered, time spent cleaning and transportation. Check with office buildings in the area to learn the cleaning companies they use. Can you offer a lower price? Are they happy with the work?
Long before your first job, know how far you are willing to travel for work. If you only serve a certain area, keep that in mind when accepting new clients.
