If you are wondering how to start a cleaning business, you should start by making some decisions. Firstly you should decide on the type of investment you can make in your business and the backup funds you have to support the company in the early days. You cannot expect to generate revenue at the start and must have the capital to support your operating costs. If you are thinking of starting slow, one great idea is to start the business online, and have a small office at your home. Most cleaners save money by starting slow and then move forward. You also need to understand that you should know how to do the cleaning or hire someone on a contract basis to do the cleaning. You will incur less cost in starting the business online, and you can use the capital on the marketing of your service. Make sure to make flyers and distribute them regularly in the community. Once you get recognition and work starts to pour in, you have in your hand a decent cleaning business, and you can grow it slowly to a proper company.
