Here’s why you should start a cleaning franchise

Thinking that a cleaning franchise could be your new business? Find out why you should choose this sector and discover cleaning franchises for sale.

Starting a cleaning franchise could be the opportunity you’re looking for. If you want to control your own working hours and how often you work, and join an industry that is secure, discover cleaning franchises for sale and get started on your journey.

Want a trusted business that helps keep homes and businesses in the best condition? Joining a cleaning franchise may be the right choice for you. There’s more to cleaning franchises than being a cleaner — you can get involved with businesses that provide a wide variety of services and products.

The cleaning industry in the UK is thriving, with the contract cleaning sector alone accounting for £5.6bn. Here are some reasons why you should consider starting a cleaning franchise, along with the best cleaning franchises for sale at What Franchise.

You can choose your working hours and where you work

With a cleaning franchise, you can choose where you work and how often. Franchises that involve cleaning premises offer great flexibility. Whether you’d rather target businesses looking for cleaning services in the evenings or you’d like to run a business cleaning personal homes during the day — such as with Domestic Angels — there are numerous opportunities available to suit you.

There are many different types of work you can do

Just because you will have a cleaning franchise doesn’t necessarily mean that you will be cleaning homes yourself. If you choose a franchise opportunity with Chemex, you will supply cleaning and hygiene products for homes and businesses. You could even get involved in pest control and recycling with Ecoclean. There is more than one way to operate a cleaning franchise and you have the freedom to choose one that works for you.

You can help the environment

You may not immediately think that a cleaning franchise could be a way to make a positive environmental impact, but many give you the chance to do just that. Not only will you contribute towards clearing up waste, but companies such as Ecoclean promote recycling, and through Chemex, the products you supply will be biodegradable. Junk Hunters is one franchise opportunity that specialises in the cleanup and considerate removal of items such as furniture and appliances for homes and business, but crucially, Junk Hunters recycles 70 per cent of everything it collects. If you’re keen to do your bit for the environment, this is a great way to do so.

Cleaning franchises can be viable for the long term

Regardless of the economic situation, cleaning is one service that people will always need. Even if homeowners become less willing to hire cleaners for financial reasons, businesses will always need service providers to come in and clean their premises.

You can get started for a comparatively low franchise cost

While every franchise has a start-up cost in the form of a franchise fee, the numbers can vary between businesses and across industries. Cleaning is one franchise sector where you can get started with less than £3,000 and have a viable business with massive potential for growth. If you want to start your business journey at a relatively low cost, franchises like Diamond Home Support and Domestique could be the choice for you.
