Hey there, I’m Angela Brown, and this is Ask a House Cleaner. This is a show where you get to ask a house cleaning question, and I get to help you find an answer.
Question: How to Start a House Cleaning Company
Hi Angela. I received your “63 questions”. Is there a way to download your eBook for free? Thank you, I love the show.”
Answer: How to Start a House Cleaning Company – Yours Free
Alright, that’s an excellent question, and the answer is yes.
The copy of the book has been available from day one, free of charge as a free downloadable eBook on Amazon.
Now, the paperback copy you do have to pay for. Because of course, we have to pay for the printing, paper and shipping costs.
What Does Start a House Cleaning Company Cover?
The book covers a bunch of basics. It is about how to go from the beginning through to the end.
It talks about those of you who have never been in the house cleaning company. And it goes through to get your first customers.
In this step-by-step guide she’ll show you:
- How to set up your home office
- What office supplies you are going to need
- Ideas for your company logo
- How to choose your company name
- How to choose a uniform
- Tips on creating your company image and brand
- How to set your rules and policies
- How to choose a territory
- Everything you need to know about creating flyers, worksheets and why you need them.
- How to bid jobs, what to charge,
- What kind of car you need,
- Confidence builders & how to build instant credentials,
- Bonding, insurance
- The magic of the Mulligan,
- How to get an endless stream of referrals, how much you should pay for referral fees,
- How to never have any billing and collections, and how to always get paid and on time.
There’s a bunch of stuff in there. It’s not a how-to about the “how to’s of cleaning. It’s about how to set up the business.
Plus there are bonus materials you can download free to edit and get started.
What if I Don’t Live in the United States and Can’t Access Amazon?
You can still download the book for free even if you do not live in the United States.
Head over to savvycleaner.com. There is a shopping cart, and in there is a free downloadable version there that you can click on. We will email you a copy of the book to the email you provide.
Why Do I Need This Book?
Well, because if you’re wondering why start a cleaning business here’s the thing. You can pay for consulting, but this is expensive. It’s a great investment to fast track your progress through the cleaning company startup to success but not everyone can afford it just starting out.
The book gives you a lot of information, like I said, free of charge. But if you are considering the reasons for starting a cleaning business there is a lot involved.
A House Cleaning Company is Recession Proof
House cleaning business is a 49 billion dollar a year industry that is recession-proof. When times get hard, people work more hours to pay the bills. They have less time at home to clean. So they outsource their cleaning – which means more business for you and me.
Another awesome reason to start a house cleaning business is this: unlike a regular 9 to 5 job if you get fired, you’re not out of work. You just add another customer to your new available time slot and keep going.
Why Wait to Start a Cleaning Company?
Start a house cleaning company with this step-by-step guide and be up and running in one week. Back in the olden days before the internet was popular and you could Google search anything, there was trial and error.
If you wanted to start a house cleaning business from scratch you could, but it was rarely an overnight success for anybody.
Big success went to the cleaning service franchisees who could afford the fancy training. They had well-built brands, while the mom and pop cleaning services figured it out on their own.
Thank you for that question. I’m so excited that you’re starting your own cleaning company.
I hope you’ll keep me posted because I’m your biggest cheerleader. I’m here for you and I’m rooting for your success.
Alrighty, and until we meet again, leave the world a cleaner place than when you found it.
