A cleaning business is a sure fire way to make income quickly, a home based residential cleaning business is one of the very best businesses in 2009 that you can start for very little cost. Here’s how to do it.
Office employees and neighbors are the best people to consult about the cleaning services for both your office and the house. By this way you can make up a list of companies that might help you out. This would give you the inspiration to start your search as it is better to have something rather than nothing. With the list in your hand, you can call up the companies and ask for their services and references.
I’ve raved so much about the great service the company has provided that several of my friends have used the company as well. One of my friends recently bought a house, and the company sent out a team to clean her old apartment and freshen up her new house prior to her move-in date. Another acquaintance was building his own home, and had the company come in to do construction clean-up. When my neighbor was getting ready to paint the exterior of his house, the cleaning service came out to do pressure washing. I even referred the service I use to my boss, who ended up hiring them to do office cleaning. But I was most shocked when my friend Kristie – the one who loves to clean – asked me for the company’s number so they could help her with spring cleaning.
I offer a free estimate with a walk through. All the information can be gathered in order to give the best quote possible. I leave them a copy of my back ground check with the local police (which costs aprox $45. Cdn), a check list of services and a list of references.
Because your clients can always find your address, you need to keep your home clean and presentable in case one decides to stop by, not realizing your office is at home.
Give your employees and clients time to prepare. As we said before, you’re not the only one moving here. Warn your clients and employees of your plans way ahead of time. This will give your employees a chance to find a new place to rent, if necessary.
Payments can be directly made to your bank account if they do online banking. This is the least hassel free ways to handle payments. I use: Interact mail money transfer. You just give them your email connected to your bank with a password that is of their choice. Or you can just ask for cash on the day of the service to be left on a table for you. Most people will give you a key, but some like to leave it on their property. Some people are home the day of service and some are not.
Office cleaning isn’t anyone’s idea of a good time, but it’s important for a number of reasons. If you don’t feel up to the task, consider hiring someone or contracting a service to come in and keep your workplace clean and tidy.
