Written by on November 5, 2021 in Business with 0 Comments

I get this question all the time, “How do I start a commercial cleaning business?” they ask me. As you know, there are plenty of resources online that will tell you how to start a cleaning business or even a commercial flooring business, but most focus only on residential cleaning products and techniques. This article is here to share with you some important lessons in starting your own commercial cleaning business.

Find a good location for your business

It doesn't make a difference if you're going to be using a home-based office or a commercial location, but it's important to take time and think about where you want your business to be. You'll need space for equipment, supplies, storage of chemicals and other cleaners as well as parking space for employees and customers. Keep in mind low rent usually means low quality, so try to find something that fits your budget but doesn't skimp out on good materials and equipment.

Get the right equipment

Once you have a location for your business it's time to get the equipment you'll need to do the job right. If you're just starting out, there are plenty of commercial cleaning equipment rentals to choose from. If you know what kind of equipment you're looking for, save time and money by checking out local reviews online before choosing who to rent your equipment from.

Determine what type of cleaning services to offer

The first thing you'll need to do once you've set up your office or rented out equipment is to figure out what kind of commercial cleaning services you want to offer. Normally, people only think about janitorial jobs, but it's important that you don't limit yourself when starting a business. In this industry, there are many different types of jobs, from tile and grout cleaning to removing graffiti from walls. Do some market research online or ask people for recommendations of the types of jobs they think your business should be doing.

Recruit cleaners and other staff members

The next step to starting a commercial cleaning business is to find cleaners and staff members. You can do this yourself or through recruiting sites that specialize in connecting employers with employees. The benefit of using these kinds of sites is the candidate pool will be diverse, so you'll have access to more people than if you just advertised your job openings on local bulletin boards. Keep in mind that many of these sites have a commission fee, so make sure it's actually worth your time to pay the membership before you sign up.

Establish your prices

Once you've found cleaners for your business it's time to figure out how much they'll charge for each job. You have full control of this, so it's important that your prices are competitive and in line with the average market price. Remember to add a profit margin on top of what you're paying your employees so you can run a successful business and make a profit!

Once you've established your prices and have found your staff, it's important to stay competitive in the market. Make sure you put together an official price list or menu of what you do so customers can know before they call. This will help attract more customers because they'll know exactly what they're getting into. If you're not sure how to price your commercial cleaning services, ask around and see what other people in the industry are charging.

Create an advertising campaign that will reach potential customers in your area

In addition to advertising on social media websites, you'll need an effective commercial cleaning service ad campaign to bring in the business. Advertising is very important when starting a new company because it gives people a chance to get to know your brand and reputation before they call for a quote. Make sure you have professional-looking ads showcasing your company's name, number, and prices. Also, take into consideration that word of mouth is the best type of advertising when starting a business so make sure your employees are friendly to customers!

The most important part about starting a commercial cleaning business is establishing yourself in the market. Make well-informed decisions when choosing where to set up shop and what services you'll be offering, and make sure you know your prices, how to advertise, and can attract employees. Once you've done all this, it's important to maintain a good company reputation because many customers are loyal to their cleaners. If you follow these steps when starting a commercial cleaning business, there's no reason why you shouldn't be successful!


Thank you so much for reading this article on starting a commercial cleaning business. I hope you learned some important insights and tips that will help you along the way! It's very important to remember that many companies fail in their first year, but those who don't give up end up really successful.
