- Office cleaning accounts provide on-going, predictable sources of revenue because services are recurring and customers are invoiced every month.
- There is low over-head and costs can be kept low and within reason, even as business grows. Expenses and cash-flow can be kept manageable as financial risk is mitigated.
- There is a good mix of small and large office cleaning accounts available in the market.
- There are opportunities to provide additional cleaning services such as carpet cleaning and hard floor care. These services add revenue and profit, as well as diversify revenue streams.
The commercial cleaning industry is largely made up of small independent operators or “Mom and Pop shops.” They account for 75% of cleaning businesses, but their success rate is low due to the fact that they primarily rely on readily available retail cleaning products and operate with little to no training. In contrast, commercial cleaning franchises account for only 10% of the total industry, leaving a wide open opportunity for professional services that can provide more consistent, and higher-quality services.
