About a Career as a Cleaning Business Owner

Imagine having your own profitable business getting paid to provide cleaning services for homes or offices. You can enter a fast-paced industry that lets you enjoy the freedom of being your own boss while providing a service that is always in demand.

You might provide cleaning services yourself, employ workers to provide cleaning services, or a combination.

You might choose to start a residential cleaning business offering services to customers living in houses, apartments, condos, or vacation homes.

If you start a commercial cleaning business, you might offer cleaning services for doctors’ offices, retail stores, restaurants, corporate offices, government agencies, and other clients. A commercial cleaning business can make more money, but is more expensive to start.

When you start a cleaning business, you can choose to specialize or to offer a variety of cleaning services such as move in/move out cleaning, maintenance cleaning for regular customers, floor care services (such as carpet cleaning), post-renovation/disaster cleanup, or exterior cleaning (such as window washing or parking lot cleanup), and more.

My experience with IAP Career College was exceptional! I loved how the courses get right to the main points and you learn so much in a short period of time.
