If you are one of the people who owns a cleaning business, then you will be starting to clean apartment buildings, commercial buildings, offices, or retail stores. You can also add some more clients who own medical clinics, office buildings, and even those who own several manufacturing facilities. But have you ever think about expanding your cleaning business into adding residential places? Perhaps you might be asked by the people that you see on those building that you clean if you could also clean residential places. Now this could be your chance to enter the residential market.
Even if your business is already doing fine with the current list of client that you have, you should think about expanding your cleaning business into including residential places in order to have more profits and earnings. You can expand from cleaning commercial places to cleaning residential places since your business might have the necessary equipments and supplies. There are still those additional services that you need to be always prepared like in commercial cleaning like floor waxing and stripping, carpet cleaning, carpet spotting, and window washing.
You should know that you could get so many benefits from residential cleaning.
1. Residential cleaning is usually done during the day so it would be easier to look for employees.
2. Your business will have a better flow on cash since it would be required for the client to pay after the cleaning will be made.
3. Commercial accounts will usually need a bidding war against other competitors and you will need to spend more time to calculate and present the bid of your compan. But residential clients will never want to spend time to wait for the cleaning companies to provide their prices and rates.
4. Residential clients will always be sticking with a cleaning company because they will always look for a name that they can trust.
So you should know what is the first thing that you need to do if you want to expand to residential cleaning. Taking a look into the market in your location as well as learning more about the other cleaning companies are the first steps that you should do. Does your area have a lot of residential cleaning companies?

You can still get a lot of business opportunities if the residential cleaning companies in your area are all booked in advance for a number of weeks.
You can start looking for your own residential cleaning clients right after you get the details of the other residential cleaning companies in your area, especially if you have an idea about the rates of their offered cleaning services. The best place to start looking is from your commercial accounts that you have made a good reputation.
