How to establish a cleaning service company

More and more people, including business owners, decide to hire cleaning service companies to clean their houses and offices. Launching this kind of business can be highly profitable even despite a very strong competition on the market.


In the case of the cleaning companies, the importance of an attractive location is rather marginal, as the customers usually order the service by phone. Nevertheless, having a small office space at your disposal is always a good idea, since the majority of the customers will want to consult the range of ordered works before paying for the service. Essentially, there exist two business models in the cleaning service sector. In the first one the company offers room, furniture and vehicles cleaning exclusively at the customer’s place. In the second one, room cleaning is conducted at the customer’s place, whereas furniture and vehicles cleaning is conducted at the company premises. The company can also be home-based, which will enable us to cut down on the initial costs of the investment.


The necessary equipment of every cleaning company includes not only basic cleaning accessories such as a mop, a sweeper or a bucket, but also professional washing vacuum cleaners. Specialised equipment is undoubtedly the most expensive part of the investment, however it should pay for itself quickly. Additionally, a company operating on a professional equipment is perceived as more reliable. First and foremost, the equipment should be chosen taking into account the range of services offered. Moreover, we should also purchase the necessary cleaning agents and detergents.

Cleaning companies offer their services to individual customers as well as to business owners. The following types of services can be distinguished: house and apartment cleaning, upholstered furniture and carpet washing, post renovation cleaning, house surroundings maintenance, vehicle interior cleaning, offices and schools cleaning.
