If you are thinking of starting a office cleaning business, then uncover the top 3 business challenges one office cleaning business veteran has faced and the advice she gives on what you can do to avoid them.
I have started my own office cleaning business that has been in existence for 3 years.
It is a easy business that brings in a lot of profit. Most businesses, big or small don't have time to clean up their office for themselves so that's where I come in at.
I started this business because I had always dreamed of being an entrepreneur in life and this is what it made me.
I have about 10 employees but plan to expand one day and hire more people so that we can clean more businesses. We don't offer any specialized things that we do because, we do it all.
We have lots of cleaning supplies that we use on a daily basis but sometimes what we use depends on what kinds of business we clean.
We use vacuums, glass cleaner, wood cleaner, steamers, and things like that.
Starting a business cleaning offices is not without it challenges. Though I have enjoyed the process of starting my own cleaning business, it hasn't happened without a few bumps.
Occasionally, we run into the problem of cleaning an office building, only to find that the client does not want to pay.
I guess this is a problem that other businesses have to encounter. So, my advice is to maintain a business demeanor and demand that your customer pay-up.
And yes, it's a pain to have to call your non-paying clients and remind them that they need to pay, it is effective.
On a few occasions, we have ran out of a few supplies while in the middle of cleaning.
When that occurs, we have to hurry to the store quickly to get it.
I remember reading about this issue from other new business owners, but you will learn quickly how NOT to under-charge your customers.
Cleaning offices as a business is good money and doesn't take a lot to start the business.
I love helping people run their business. I love seeing the joy on people's face when they see how their businesses looks afterwards.
The only regret I have is not being more organized and not researching enough before I started my own cleaning business.
Initially, I struggled to keep up with all the adminstrative tasks required to keep a cleaning business on task, scheduled and running smoothly.
