First of all, before you decide to start your cleaning business, make sure this kind of work is right for you. You will need to be in good physical condition. Cleaning is very hard strenuous work. You will need to have good customer relation skills. You will need to have basic office skills and some accounting skills.
If you are planning on leaving your full time position to start a cleaning business, make sure you have at least six months of savings. Or keep your full time job and start out part time.
Research all the aspects of the cleaning service business. From customer service to advertising, taxes, employees, insurance and bonding, what to charge and how to clean a home professionally. Cleaning your own home and cleaning professionally is totally different. Learning how to clean professionally takes a lot of time. When a client pays for your services they expect to come home and find their home spotless.
Getting those first clients takes time, persistence and patience. You will not get a hundred clients overnight.
The hardest part of starting your own Cincinnati Cleaning service is obtaining those first clients. Most clients want to know how long you have been in business and want references. The best thing to do is let clients know that, yes, you are new to the business but that you have thoroughly researched all aspects of the cleaning business and assure them that you know what you are doing and that you are quit capable of cleaning their home to their specifications. Be confident. I can’t stress this enough. Clients love to see confidence. It relieves their worries and lets them know that their home is in good hands.
When cleaning those first homes, go for quality, not how fast you can clean the home. Cincinnati Cleaning efficiently takes a long time, but you will get to the point where you can do a thorough cleaning in a short time. After cleaning make sure you go back and double check all rooms to make sure you didn’t miss anything. Impress those first clients and word of mouth will spread soon.
Advertising Your company image is everything. Before you start advertising, decide what image you want to portray on your advertising material. Your image is very important. Be consistent with all your advertising. If you have a logo be sure to use it on all your advertising materials. I think it is best to have a website developed before you start advertising. When advertising, stick with the same logo and colors.
Start by running a text ad in your local newspaper. Try to come up with an eye catching ad. Do not sell your services on low rates, sell your services on your quality of work and what you can do for the client that other companies don’t. There is a lot of competition in the cleaning service. You have to stand out from the rest.
Another reason it is a smart idea to have some channel cleaning done in your home every couple of years is for the improved air quality in your house. Many owners never have their ducts cleaned out while owning their home and that pattern wishes to stop for the condition of your friends living there. An article recently in the Cincinnati Cleaning reported the health benefits of having your channels professionally cleaned out by a certified channel cleaning consultant. A great amount of things have been known to be found in air vents and channels in a home over the years. Pros have found dead animals, toys, socks, pet hair and naturally plenty of dust and dirt. Are you able to think how efficient a channel is when there is a dead animal obstructing the vent? You need the air being forced into your house to pass through clean vents producing good quality air for everybody to breathe.
The fitness of your family is the last important reason to have your channels cleaned out. Asthma and allergies is rising with Yank children and homeowners need to scrub out their HVAC system as well as the ducts to remove all of the dust causing allergens that can cause or even exacerbate asthma symptoms. If your vents and system are cleaned each 2-3 years, there will be less allergy symptoms and asthma attacks for those in your house that have these conditions.
