Start a Cleaning Business on a Shoestring is a comprehensive and easy to understand guide to starting and running a successful UK domestic cleaning agency, based on the author's own experience. Compared with other business start-ups a cleaning agency offers many advantages:

  • Can be run from home.
  • Relatively low start up costs.
  • Recession resilient.
  • Quick to set up (you could be earning money within 2 weeks).
  • Easy to learn.
  • High profit margins.
  • Fantastic income potential.
  • White collar opportunity (you don't do the cleaning, you manage)
This book is broken down into a logical sequence allowing the reader to move effortlessly from the planning phase, to launch and then on to the day to day running of the business. Clear step by step guidance is provided throughout with specimen contracts, forms, marketing and presentation materials provided. In short, everything you need to start a cleaning business is included. The author even offers valuable bonuses when you buy his book:
  1. trade prices on your printed materials.
  2. half price advertising in a leading UK on line cleaning directory.
  3. a low cost website building service
  4. a low cost document customisation service
Starting and running a cleaning agency is not rocket science; it simply requires commitment and basic organisation skills. Simply signing up two new clients per week will put you on target to earn in the region of £80,000 per annum, by the end of your second trading year. All this is possible without having to run payroll, provide cleaning materials and equipment or do any cleaning work yourself. You can even run the business part time and the author explains how you can accomplish this. Why spend upwards of £10,000 for a cleaning franchise when you can learn how to start a successful cleaning agency on a shoestring!
