Points to Note While Starting a Residential Cleaning Business


Starting a residential cleaning business is not hard and does not require much capital or intensive skills.  The entrepreneur can start small and look for ways to grow the business with time.  As the business gets more clients, chances of growth will be high.   For small business people, start with a smaller number of employees and increase after the business grows.

Start with business registration.   Come up with a name, preferably a name related to cleaning or laundry services to make easier for customers to relate your business with Orchard Beach janitorial services.  Get an insurance cover from legit insurance firms to ensure your business and cleaners are covered in cases of injuries or losses.

Look for the necessary cleaning supplies and office equipment if you intend to have an office.   While starting up, an office space is not a necessity as you can also operate from home.   One of the ways to case costs will be to buy cleaning supplies in bulk from best janitorial supplies.  Such supplies includes mops, cleaning buckets, cleaning detergents, caddies for carrying cleaning supplies, towels, etc.   To ensure you and your cleaners are protected at work, ensure you have protective clothes such as overall, aprons, gloves, right shoes, etc.

The next step will involve business marketing, depending on the available funds.  Hire a marketing company to advertise the business if funds allow.   The best way to market the business will be to visit clients at their homes.   Issue fliers to the neighbors in your locality, as the first preferred clients.   Many homeowners prefers getting cleaning services from people of the same locality.  Other places where one can issue fliers are churches, any community gathering in the neighborhood, offices in towns or rural areas, etc.  Since you will be starting up, you will need to have referee contacts which can be gained by winning some few clients through free cleaning services.   Join social media sites and create pages to try and reach more clients.  This social media sites will not charge anything to open pages, making it an effective marketing tool.  As the business expands, have a website where more clients can reach you, have a look at the services offered as well as book your Orchard Beach residential cleaning services.

At first, you can decide to do the cleaning on your own but as the orders increases, hire one or two more cleaners to assist with the work.   Conduct a background research on the people you intend to hire as you will be taking them to people’s homes where privacy is an important aspect.   Ensure you observe time as agreed with the client.  You will get clients who will require you to work in their presence, while others will leave you to work then come back to inspect the work later.  In the hope of looking to grow the numbers, request the customer to give you a few referrals if they get satisfied with your services.
