Catchy name, logo and slogan

A good business has a catchy name that people can remember easily. Before starting a cleaning business, you should think about what name it is going to go by. You might want to check to see if that name has been taken by another business. If not, you can register it if you like. You may want to also get a domain name bearing the business name so that you can market your cleaning business online in addition to the traditional ways.

Finding clients through referrals

The cleaning business often relies on word of mouth. To start and run a successful cleaning business, you will need to line up clients and plenty of them. After all, if your business gets too big, you can always hire helpers to help you clean. The problem occurs when you have everything set up and ready to go but no clients.

Service is key

The best and easiest way to market your cleaning business is to provide the best service that will 'wow' the client every time. That way, the client is happy and will refer his or her friends to you. People love and pay for great service so don't disappoint them.
