How to Start an Office Cleaning Business

By: Barry Stein

Perhaps your objective is to make money for yourself and be profitable in your endeavors? Then Im here to tell you that an office cleaning business can help you to become an independent business owner, which will give you the freedom you desire.

The amount of money you will make will depend on the size of the office cleaning business you set your goals to reach. Are you going to keep it simple and work from home or are you going all out and hire a staff? A small office cleaning business often means less head aches with regards to hiring and managing employees, but a large operation often means more money to your bottom line.

This is something you will have to consider when you decide to start and grow your business.

Listed here are a few of the steps you will need to take when starting an office cleaning business.

1. The first step in starting an office cleaning business has already been completed because you know what type of cleaning you will be doing. Now you need to be more specific in the nature of your business. You need to decide which services you will offer with your cleaning business.

2. Next you will have to come up with prices for your services by finding out what the competition is charging and try to match them or even offer lower prices in the beginning to get your first accounts. You can call around to some of the established office cleaning services in your area and pretend to be interested in their services. Ask them about what comes with their services and how much they charge. Also ask how long it might take to complete the task. Try to make your services and/or prices better than the competition so you will be able to sign up new accounts.

3. Sit down and figure the cost of starting the business. You will need to consider what the costs of materials, supplies, and other things needed for starting a business will cost you. Make yourself a list of these things and write the cost of the item next to the description. Not only will it give you a list of the costs, it will keep you organized and in balance.

4. How are you going to go back and forth with all your supplies? Your transportation needs to be sorted out before you begin. If you can not get to the job, you will not be reliable enough to call back again.

5. How are you going to let others know about your services? Where are you going to advertise your services? These advertising venues might include word of mouth advertising, a newspaper, the telephone book, or on the internet. Decide what you can afford and what is best for your services.

6. Finally, offer some free cleaning jobs and get references from those people. This will provide you with a good start in building your client base and you will also have references to begin a positive reputation for your office cleaning business.

Starting an office cleaning business takes time and effort. Dont get overwhelmed with the work involved. Just write down your goals and take one step at a time. Then take action to reach your goals and eventually you will have your own successful office cleaning business!
