Cleaning Homes Is A Nice Business To Begin With

By Ivan Scott

Have you ever considered starting your own business? There are benefits to being your own boss. You can set your own availability and hours while making your money. If this sounds good, look into starting up a cleaning business. There are few start-up costs with this type of business, and it is always in demand.

Most people dislike cleaning. Still, it needs to be done. Working adults are often overwhelmed, especially if they have children or pets. They might be pressed for time and not be able to keep up with housework.

If you do the cleaning, you’ll be dusting and vacuuming and doing dishes, making beds, taking out trash, all of those general home chores that need doing. Some cleaners even do laundry for clients, though this varies.

To make your new business a success, you’ll have to do some advertising. Post signs around town, hand out business cards, and tell everyone you know about your new venture. You want people to recommend you to their friends via word of mouth.

After you make contact with people who are interested in your services, you want to schedule an appointment to hammer out the details. Plan on discussing duties, pricing, and supplies. You need to know exactly what is expected, and who provides cleaning materials.

Make sure to draw up a written contract. You want everything to be very specific and very clear so that there is no confusion.

You are the one who is in charge of your income this way. You can set a flat rate, either by the size of the property to be cleaned or by the task, or you can charge an hourly rate. You can either have your own supplies you use, or use those belonging to the homeowner. Be sure though that if you supply the materials, you account for this cost when you set your rates. Bear in mind, if you do supply materials you can be sure you will be using products you know work well; you won’t have to struggle to clean with inferior supplies.

Are you trustworthy? You need to be very trustworthy for this kind of business. Often you will be cleaning homes when the homeowner is away. To be trusted with this, you’ll need to establish a good working relationship with the homeowner or tenant.

This author also regularly blogs about products including tongue cleaner and keyword Therabreath oral rinse.
