Do you have experience in the commercial cleaning field, and may be tired of your low paying job? Or are you a person with little, or no commercial cleaning experience, but is looking for a low-cost way to start a business? If this is you, or even if you are somewhere in between, you may want to start considering opening a commercial cleaning service of your own. An office cleaning business is a low-risk, and high reward business model, with low costs starting out. If opening your own commercial cleaning service has been something you may have been considering, here are a few simple tips that can help you get started.
The first thing you will want to do is to ensure you have the proper funding to take on this business project. You may have money already saved up, or you may need to borrow start-up capital from friends and relatives. If this is not an option for you, you may want to consider going to a bank for a low-interest business loan. To successfully receive a small business loan for yourself, you will need to be able to meet certain criteria. You must have proof of prior work experience, and also have an above average credit standing. They will want to have a more thorough look at your finances, and also will want to see a list of references that they can check, in regards of your character. You will also need to show them a sophisticated business plan to ensure that your business has a plan for success.
The next thing you will need to do is to secure a business license. To apply for a business license you will need to contact your county’s local recorder’s office, to get more information on what is needed for the application. You could go on their website beforehand, to get more information on exactly what they’re looking for, or just go in and make an appointment. After following the correct procedural process, it will only be a matter of days until you have your brand new business license.
The next step for your business will be to purchase some bonded insurance. Bonding insurance is a specific type of insurance, purchased by your business to protect themselves from clients and customers. This will come in handy if an employee of yours happens to break or ruin something at your client’s office. With bonded insurance, the insurance company will pay for any damages incurred against your client, which can happen frequently. Only make sure, when purchasing bonded insurance, that you do your research first. Make sure you check out several companies very thoroughly, before finding the deal that best suits your business.
The final step you need to make is to purchase all the necessary supplies. You can shop at wholesale commercial cleaning warehouses and large discount stores to find the best prices for your equipment. Getting affordable, yet good and durable equipment is very important to the long term and short term expenses of your business. Complete these steps in the proper order and your commercial cleaning service will be on its way to success and prosperity in no time.
