Back in the olden days, there was no Google. If you wanted to start a cleaning business – it was all trial and error.
Starting a house cleaning company from scratch was rarely an overnight success for anybody. The big success came from cleaning franchises who sold fancy training. Franchises sold the ability to “buy” a brand name and a “territory.”
The mom and pop cleaning services had to figure it out on their own. Good news – times have changed. You no longer have to wade through Pinterest boards for ideas on how to get your business started.
