The best way to start a cleaning business is through referrals. Let your friends and family know you're doing cleaning on the side. After you've cleaned a few of their homes, ask them if they can refer you to their friends.
Regarding business experience, I know it seems like a large task, but for a one-person business like yours, it really boils down to three smaller components:
1. Finance - really easy. Cleaning supplies aren't that expensive. But track ALL your expenses related to the business (supplies, miles driven for your business, etc.) Also, track every dollar you earn.
2. Marketing - it shouldn't be that expensive, since referrals will be the most of your business. But you might also use flyers or other means of advertising.
3. Taxes. Even though it's a couple hundred dollars, it's worthwhile to consult an accountant as to how best to track your sales and expenses for tax purposes.
Singlemom, I wish you the very best in your new venture.
We have assisted individuals in starting cleaning business, janitorial
services and widow cleaning businesses along with landscaping
businesses and other types of small businesses. My first suggestion is
that you may want to place your focuses of providing both commercial accounts
and residential services.
As you grow your business you may want to
continue with both sectors or decide one one or the other commercial or
residential, You would use a different approach for generating
commercial accounts than for residential customers but in both you
need to set yourself apart from your competition in your area and bring
value added as a part of your services.
Word of mouth referrals are nice but slow in coming, you will need to
take a more pro active approach to bring in customers faster otherwise
your business will become more bothersome than valuable to you. You
need thinking of hiring a small crew which you will grow as needed.
At first you will rent or least your equipment as needed so speak with
a few equipment rental companies in your area let them know what your
intentions are. Make a point of having each be aware that by providing
you with discounted rates now will serve you both as you grow so it
will be in their best interest to workout special discounts at this
Speak with janitorial suppliers who are willing to provide you with
discounts and even set you up on an account so you don't need pay on the
spot when you need supplies. This can be important since often you will need supplies prior to
receiving payment from your customers.
I hope this information helps getting you going in the right
directions. We can discuss various methods you may want to use in
marketing, promoting and advertising your business locally based on
where you are in the country.

happy to discuss with you at no cost if you would like to give me a

I am new to this website, but so far am finding it very informative. I do not yet have my own business, but I want to start a cleaning business. I am a single mother living from paycheck to paycheck and have to make some additional income asap. I was told by someone that a cleaning business is one of the easiest to start. If anyone owns a business like this or has some advice on how to start, I would gratefully welcome the feedback. I am a very low paid medical assistant with no money and no business experience,so I am basically starting from scratch.
