If you are already cleaning houses and want to start a cleaning business formally, it is easier than starting from scratch because you already have clients.

If you know people who are already running a cleaning business, you can watch them and learn. Not every cleaning business is successful and you want to spot the successful ones and learn from them as much as possible.

Writing a business plan for your cleaning business

A business plan is very important. A good business plan will give you a milestone and a benchmark of what you need to do and achieve to succeed at your cleaning business. A financial projection is a very important part of the business plan where you estimate how much you need to operate the business and profit. If your plan does not work on paper, you should not start the business because it is likely to fail.

Get funding for your business

Once you have a sound business plan, you can start following and executing it. You may need supplies and a startup budget for your cleaning business. If you can afford the startup cost yourself, then you can start your business immediately. Otherwise, you may need to get a loan such as an SBA (Small Business Administration) Loan to help you.

Find Clients!

The last obstacle, assuming you are learning how to start a cleaning business because you already know how to clean, is how to find clients for your business. It is harder when your business is new. Referrals work wonder at first. You can also advertise and market your business online, using classified ads, in newspapers and signs. Remember to get good and attractive business cards and make some flyers to pass out.
