The difference between starting a business and thinking about starting a business is basic; thinking is so much harder. In particular, starting a business that offers excellent commercial cleaning services is a seemingly impossible task. This is in a hypothetical scenario, however; one that includes the thought process only with the exclusion of the execution part. Setting up an office cleaning business has never been easy but will never be as hard as people like to think.
The intricacies of the office cleaning business
1. Doing a survey
There is no need to do any survey. Regardless of whether you are in a city, town or local municipality, there are plenty of offices that desperately need your services and don’t know it. Show up at their doors and they will beg you to step in.
2. Determine what services to offer
Depending on what amount of capital is at your disposal and what skills you can access, decide what services your enterprise will offer. A full range of services will include mopping and vacuuming, dusting and disinfecting, restroom cleaning, and trash removal. All the services will require particular instruments and gadgets. Hence, whatever resource is available will determine the scope of services you have to offer.
A good franchise, nonetheless, will offer all services that an office will need to get cleaned up. It will dust and clean all surfaces and equipment. It will sanitize and disinfect the office and the restrooms, vacuum all corners of the establishment and dispose of all the trash sustainably.
However, this business is a lucrative path that has not been well followed and is very promising. With a properly drafted business plan, no bank would deny you a loan. Therefore, you should not have an excuse to exclude certain services in your business.
3. Create a business plan
Of course, this goes without saying.
4. Getting all the necessary documents
The intricacies of starting an office cleaning business all fall here. There are a few documents that all franchise offering commercial cleaning services must have. These are:
• A license
• Registration documents
• Liability insurance
• Approved hourly rates charge shit
• Tax forms and W9 forms
5. Get down to marketing
Marketing is an essential part of starting a commercial cleaning franchise. Any elaborate action or word coined up towards the result of potential clients knowing of the existence of your services counts as marketing.
You should strive to make sure those potential customers;
• Know your services exist
• Prefer your services to those of the competition
• Know how to contact you
• Prefer your rates to those of your competition
• Feel confident in your capacity to meet their requirement
