How To Turn Your House Cleaning Skills Into Profits

Your Slogan Should Be: “It Is Better To Pay Someone Else To Clean For You”!

Despite of the pandemic, the continuing growth of families with two paychecks is a good indication that house cleaning services is booming.

Two paychecks also mean that time is limited for busy families.

In fact, more than their cleaning skills or the type of cleaning equipment they use, the success of a house cleaning service is premised on two factors:

  1. Time
  2. Convenience

With both husband and wife working, neither of the couple has the time nor the energy to do housework.

The principle of delegated labor suggests that,

If the work that needs to be done can be given to someone who will do it for less than what you can earn given the same amount of time needed to do the job; it is better to pay someone else to do the job for you.

For most people doing housework fits that description.

But just knowing how to clean a house is no guarantee of success in the housecleaning business.

They key to a successful cleaning business is good organization and systematic process that lends to an efficient cleaning routine.

Most house cleaning operators recommend the team system, with two to three cleaners in a team who visit the same accounts, homes or businesses every week or every day.

Teams divide their chores, rotating tasks among team members, from one account to the next, in order to reduce monotony.

How To Find House Cleaning Clients

To find clients, target your advertising efforts, in terms of both the demographic and geographic distribution of your desired audience.

Although house cleaning service is no longer for the rich alone, it is not for low-income markets either.

You must be aware of where your prospective accounts are located, on which zip codes to focus your efforts.

When setting up your rate structure, consider you hourly fee per employee and estimate how long a cleaning will take.

Provide a base rate while allowing for optional services at extra charge.

When meeting with clients for the first time, try to sell them on additional, related house cleaning services, which will prove extra profitable.
