    Nowadays, workers and families are stressed with much work, after working about 12 hours each day, cleaning the house would be the last thing on their to-do list. Typically, their weekends are allocated for rest or spending quality time with family and friends. So, many families out there are looking for some help in cleaning up their homes. Way back, housekeepers are treated as maids but not now. These days, housekeepers are treated with respect for their much-appreciated services.

    Actually, more and more people are starting their own cleaning business. With a little cost, you can easily get started. There are easily steps for you to follow in order successfully get started to this kind of business, read on to know the steps.

    Yes, this is a highly profitable business, but of course, you need to do the steps correctly and successfully. The first thing that you need to do is to make a business plan and policy. You need to develop a good business plan before you seek for clients. As a beginner in this business, you need to have a name. In making a name, you need to choose one that can stand out among other competitors out there.

    After having an appealing name, the next thing that you should do is to insure your business. You must have insurance. You can ease the minds of your clients if you have insurance. Customers would prefer to deal with you than other cleaning businesses since they do not have insurance and you have. Having insurance can give you peace of mind since you will no longer have to worry about your personal assets to be seized in a lawsuit due to being accused of stealing something from a client.

    After being insured, the next thing you need to do is to get a copy of your background check and police record. You can go with your city hall or police station to get it; it won’t cost you much with this. Typically, it is just about $3 to $15 only.

    Of course, there are things that you need to decide on for your business such as how do you want to operate your business, will you be working from Mondays to Fridays, how many hours will you be operating each day, will you be using your own cleaning products or will you want to use the cleaning products of your clients, do you prefer to be paid in cash or check, what will be your rate, these are just few of the things you need to consider.

    In order to gain lots of clients, do not forget to advertise your cleaning business. You can create and distribute flyers.

    No no, this should be left here for comic value.

    I mean, a forum about Web Design. SEO, SEM, Programming and someone spams with Cleaning?

    Must be mentally retarded or something.

    PLUS it is a UK orientated forum, yet it is aimed at the US.
    To start a cleaning business in the UK you get a mop a bucket and you're ready to go. :D
