It also encompasses dust-free wooden floor sanding, tile and grout cleaning and domestic and commercial service.
The third option of the Cleaning Doctor franchise concerns external cleaning services, including the cleaning of windows, fascia, soffit gutter and wall cleaning, gutter and downpipe cleaning, driveway, path, patio and deck cleaning, as well as pressure and jet washing, algae and moss removal.
Finally, Cleaning Doctor provides home cleaning services as another franchise option. This option covers house cleaning, spring cleaning, special event cleaning, end of tenancy cleaning, office cleaning and gift voucher cleaning.
A new Cleaning Doctor franchise offers the opportunity to own and operate their own cleaning and restoration business. Cleaning Doctor handpicks ambitious individuals with common sense and helps them become successful business owners.
The company provides franchisees with all the necessary training and guidance, so that they can become true experts in cleaning and restoration in their given territory.
Cleaning Doctor franchises are often run from home-office locations, using a well equipped and professionally branded van. You can start with an owner-operated business and eventually develop the franchise into a multi-team, multi-vehicle operation.
Cleaning Doctor stands out due to its professionalism and high level of training with the best equipment, marketing and a strong record of high customer satisfaction. The company’s reputation secures the likelihood of constant, reliable and profitable business and a strong client base.
Cleaning Doctor’s marketing is particularly strong not only in terms of the thorough training in marketing techniques. In addition to a strong web presence and unique email address, you will have your own branded Facebook page, Twitter address and the ability to upload video to the Cleaning Doctor YouTube channel.
There is flexibility with the option of working from home with hours that suit the individual, so there are no expensive overheads. It is often a good choice for those who have families and want that freedom of choice. This flexibility is supported by a positive work culture, characterised by decency and respect.
Cleaning Doctor franchisees have come from a range of different backgrounds from the civil service to the corporate world. The company is looking for individuals who are driven, enthusiastic and have strong people skills and are looking to fulfil the potential of a low-cost, high-profit business. The new franchisees will be expected to follow the successful Cleaning Doctor formula that has been tried and tested over many years.
The Cleaning Doctor franchisee fee relates to the particular franchise option selected. The entry-level choice is £10,450 while the best option is £27,500. These differing costs relate to the specific equipment and training required in each case although each choice is comprehensive in its provision. New franchisees will also expect to pay a monthly fixed Management Services Fee (MSF).
Experience indicates that the major banks will support Cleaning Doctor franchises although they will normally look for a minimum personal investment of around £6,000 before they will help to finance the rest of the venture. The amount will depend on the selected franchise option and you will need to provide a carefully thought out business plan when you apply.
