Home cleaning is one of the fastest-growing service businesses in
North America. A good cleaning service brings comfort and order into people’s lives and in today’s world, these are highly sought-after commodities. A home cleaning service can start out small, but it has the potential to grow to be a multi-million dollar business with branch offices and franchises. Your business can grow to the point where you need to lease office space, hire staff, purchase a fleet of vehicles,
and develop your own products and customized services. With the help of this book, you can get your business up and running, and survive that essential first year. The book answers questions such as:
Do I have what it takes to run my own business?
What are the legal requirements for running a business like mine?
How do I find and keep clients?
How much should I charge?
What equipment do I need?
What other services can I offer?
How do I hire and train staff?
How does commercial cleaning differ from home cleaning?

About the Author
In 1981, armed with a secondhand vehicle, a small staff, and a dramatic advertising campaign, Susan Bewsey launched her first cleaning business. Within three months, “the little cleaning service that could” was a success, and Bewsey sold her first franchise shortly after. By 1988, she had sold and resold 157 franchises and managed a fleet of more than 80 vehicles. After five more successful years, she parted with her latest home cleaning venture and is now a development and planning consultant for small business, primarily in the cleaning service industry.
