However, where it is easy, to begin with, it is important to determine the type of cleaning business you want to step into. There are many different types of cleaning services which you can offer to the clients; but before jumping on the bandwagon, it is important to know what sets them apart. 

So without further ado, let’s discuss seven main types of cleaning services for your cleaning business. 


  • Residential cleaning services


Residential cleaning is always popular, no matter the market. Once you have the reputation of a residential cleaning service provider, you will have a decent flow of revenue. These cleaning services may be daily, weekly or monthly. It depends on the client hiring you for the services. Residential cleaning services include the following chores: 

  • Dusting 
  • Vacuuming 
  • Fixtures 
  • Polishing mirrors
  • Mopping floor etc. 

The best part of residential cleaning is that you can easily get the clients to your business. Although word of mouth is enough for these services, having an online reputation may help you in getting more attention! 


  • Commercial cleaning services 


Commercial cleaning includes cleaning offices, buildings, apartments and organizations. This is more beneficial in big cities rather than in local areas. When beginning with commercial cleaning, there are a few things you may need to consider:

  • A creative business name
  • Logo design and business cards for distribution
  • A small office for inventory and the employees
  • Make a website and have a solid marketing plan 
  • A number of employees
  • Equipment required for services
  • A license to begin with the business 

Getting a cleaning contract may be challenging at first, but once you have the experience in the industry, it becomes easier. 


  • Window cleaning services


This is also a part of commercial cleaning services that often takes place in big organizations. It doesn’t require much money to begin. Be it Manhattan, Brooklyn or long island window cleaning services are always big in offices and big organizations. When it comes to the requirement of beginning with the business, it is the same as the commercial cleaning services. 


  • Washing services 


Power washing is exceedingly satisfying. It is a kind of work that doesn’t require much effort, but you need to work on Saturdays and Sundays only. Like window cleaning, washing services too doesn’t require much budget, but basic equipment to begin with. Not just that, you can also jump into laundry services. People want to clean clothes! While they don’t have the time to do it themselves, they hire laundry services to get the job done. In addition to washing, you can also press the clothes and cover them in plastic bags, so they don’t get dirty. 


  • Carpet cleaning 


Carpet cleaning is a challenging business to begin, but it does stand out in the competition. However, it can be expensive to start carpet cleaning as the equipment can be expensive. It is a good idea to add carpet cleaning to your services once you have established your business and its generating enough revenue. 


  • Swimming pool cleaning 


The swimming pool can be heaven in those summer days. This is where your pool cleaning business can have a boost. Unlike other cleaning services, pool cleaning services require some experience in various states. This is where it can be difficult to begin a pool cleaning business in small states if you don’t have the license and experience. 

However, you can add the pool cleaning service to the list of the services you offer and hire experienced people to do the job. You would already have an established clientele, so finding new clients will not be difficult. A plus point here is when you are established business, you will be providing services not only to homes but also hotels, schools and resorts. 


  • Car washing services 


In modern times, who wouldn’t own a car? Every 2 out of 3 people are likely to own a car which would also require washing. Many people consider washing their cars from a station, but there are also people who prefer their cars to be washed and cleaned at home. This is where your business can step in! If you think it is not the services you want to get into at first, you can simply add it in your services when expanding your cleaning business. 


Once you have set a specific type of business, it becomes easier to step in other areas as well. Once you have established your services, you can only move forward with your business.
