The great thing about owning your own business and being your own boss is the ability of being able to work when you want and how you want. This can make a difference to your life work balance and of course your financial situation. Owning and running your own business will allow you to do as much or as little as you like when you like and how you like. Much of your day will be determined by you through good planning and control of your days and weeks ahead.
Don’t underestimate it, being your own boss can often be stressful and difficult. But with it, is your opportunity to earn money with no limits. You’ll be challenged daily but this guide will give you the tools and skills required to set up your own Cleaning Business.
Many people often dream of starting their own cleaning business but that’s where the dream often ends. But those people that have become successful in business and in life are the people who have put their dreams and plans into action by doing what they dream about. By committing yourself to starting your business and putting in the hours and effort required there is no reason why you cannot operate and run a successful business in this industry.
You must be prepared to keep your customers interests at heart as a business such as this will require you to be flexible friendly and adaptable to meet your customers needs. Much of this business is repeated through word of mouth which can often be the best way to own and operate a successful business. This type of business is built by reputation and can often lead to repeat work without advertising. A good cleaning company is always in demand. Customers want fast and effective service at a reasonable cost. Remember this and you won’t go far wrong.
Whether your client is a commercial organisation or a domestic customer, you must always strive to provide the extra service as the client will return to your business time and time again if the service you provide is of an excellent service, punctual and cost effective.
THE CLEANING INDUSTRY
The cleaning industry has been around for many years, since very early days, the rich and local gentry employed the services of cleaners and maids to clean their homes, shops and factories. Today the industry is worth billions in UK revenue each year and is still growing. This industry is a large economic indicator and employs hundreds and thousands each and every year. There are two distinct markets within the industry. The commercial market such as, shops, housing associations, local authorities, schools, college’s hotels and holiday resorts, golf clubs and offices with large property portfolios. Through to the domestic market where residential householders requiring one off services of a cleaning contractor to blitz their new home to regular weekly cleans for the busy family or executive.
There are millions of commercial offices and workplaces in the UK, all of which require reliable cleaning services as well as massive demand in the domestic sector still.
This day and age, the commercial market often runs on a contractual basis offering the possibility of short or long-term contracts for property cleaning services which will improve your business cash flow and business prosperity. This sector is competitive though.
You may initially wish to sub contract for bigger clients whom have these corporate contracts, which may help you with cash flow and turnover, getting your business off the ground. The domestic market is often more casual, often without formal contracts being exchanged for the services offered.
To run a business such as this, you will need good communication skills and be physically fit. You will need to be organised and competent in the use of a computer, as these days much of any business involves technology.
Much of the equipment and stock required to run a business of this nature is widely available throughout the country to both hire and purchase. To get started you will need a reasonable amount of capital outlay and of course, some effort to promote and set up your business in the local area. Clearly you also need a form of transport to enable your equipment to be transported and excess waste to be removed. However, none of this needs to be expensive. There are many solutions that will enable you to carry out a business of this nature from your own home with very little room or capital outlay required.
Whether you are professionally qualified or have picked up your skills from years of practice, starting a business in this sector could not be easier as it is one which requires a good knowledge of the industry and key contacts to be really successful.
