How To Start a Residential House Cleaning Service
If you want your own business and you don't have much money to get started, a residential house cleaning service may be just what you need - especially if you have a neat streak running through your veins.
Once established in this kind of business, you can easily make the transition to office cleaning, or even start a janitorial business serving larger commercial operations.
Indeed, life is more hurried and full of distractions than ever before. Many people feel they just don't have enough time in a day for housekeeping.
Oddly enough, many of us rank a clean home as very important, yet it's one of the last things on our "to do" list. Numerous surveys verify that people give cleaning a low priority in the use of their free time.
On top of that, cleaning seems to be one of those tasks that gets
half done. You know.
"I'll do the dishes and vacuum, oh but that dusting and those cobwebs in the corner will just have to wait till the weekend."
Ah, but then the weekend comes, and who wants to ruin a perfectly good weekend cleaning house?
So the household dilemma is:
We want a clean home, but we don't have time to clean and we don't like to clean.
That's where you come in. Cleaning takes on a whole new meaning when you're getting paid for it.
