With a slow economy, many people are interested in earning an extra income. By taking on jobs cleaning houses, it is a great way to make extra money. It is a job that can be done even if you already have a job.
It is a great way to make extra money and you don’t need a lot of start up cash. It is best if you start with some business cards. They need to be eye catching and to the point. Place them where people can see them; grocery stores, post office, ECT.
Start with a few simple cleaning products such as floor cleaners, furniture polish, bathroom and kitchen cleaners. Some homes will provide their own vaccum cleaners, but it is best to bring your own if possible.
Set your price for your house cleaning service rates. Many choose to charge by the hour, usually $10.00- $15.00, but you can also set a base price for your work that includes just basic cleaning services.
As you build your business you can begin to offer other services such as carpet shampooing and drapery cleaning.
Another great way to get started is to offer you services for free to your church or neighboring church’s. If it is a job well done, they will be glad to spread the word. Getting your name out there, having people hear for themselves what a great job is done is the best way to build your business.
Once your business begins to grow and more clients request your services, you may want to add employees. Maybe a friend or family member who is interested in part time work can help you out. With more people helping, you will be able to take on bigger jobs or more cleanings in a day.
It is important to keep all of your appointments and follow the home owners instructions. Doing a great job will help your business grow.
