4 Profitable Business Ideas For Cleaning Enthusiasts

 **Collaborative Post**

AD: As the age-old saying goes: "Do what you love and the money will come." If you consider yourself a bit of a "neat freak" or have a knack for cleaning, why not start a business in the cleaning industry? If you can turn something you truly enjoy into something that makes you money, going to work is going to be so much easier right? The truth is the cleaning industry has been turning a profit for several years as people and businesses are always in need of cleaners. This is illustrated in the statistics that show that the UK's household cleaners market is expected to increase by 2.16% annually.

Therefore, starting a business in this industry is a great idea and it can be easy to get into too! But what options are available to you? Here are five profitable ideas.

Offer residential cleaning services

For many, juggling several responsibilities makes it challenging to keep up with cleaning their homes. You can take advantage of this problem by offering residential cleaning services. These services include deep cleaning your clients' bathrooms, bedrooms, living rooms, and kitchens. You may need little to no equipment, which means you can save more for your business's future expansion. Although you can offer residential cleaning services independently, carrying out various tasks may be challenging.

Therefore, consider hiring a team to avoid losing potential clients due to the business's size. You could choose to work for a large established company and be handed jobs local to you or you could start your own business, just remember that cleaning services often rely on word of mouth so it may take a little time to build up your business. However if you are good at what you do, it will soon pay off in the long run! The only thing with this is you are likely to need your own transport to get around to various clients whether you are employed or self employed.

Open a laundry shop

If you love the satisfaction of eased creases, the smells of fresh laundry, and folding the clothes away, you may want to consider opening a laundry shop. This business idea usually requires sizable capital as you would have to invest in heavy machinery such as industrial washing machines, commercial steamers, dry-cleaning machines, and so on. However, it is a worthwhile investment as the market is expected to grow annually by 1.08%. Sometimes however you can find places like launderettes up for sale which come with all the equipment included so this could be something to look out for if this is the route you are considering.

In addition, to wash and fold services, your laundry shop can provide residents with launderettes to get their clothes washed at a cheaper price. 

Provide gutter and chimney cleaning services

Debris and other elements can cause your gutter and chimney to clog up. A clogged chimney may be a fire hazard and pollute your home's air quality, while a choked gutter can cause structural damage to your home. Despite these risks, homeowners don't pay attention to these areas until it's too late. You can offer assistance by creating a gutter and chimney cleaning service.

You can do it yourself if you have the tools and knowledge but you may find that you will require a team or at the very least a partner to help with these jobs even if it is things like assistance with ladders etc as these types of jobs can often be a two-person job (or very tricky and time-consuming on your own).

Crime scene cleaning

It may have crossed your mind a few times when watching an episode of CSI, "who cleans up the crime scene?" Well, it could be you! This is the perfect business idea for the cleaning nut who loves true crime. According to Indeed.com, crime scene cleaners can make up to £17 per hour. Before you set up a crime scene cleaning business, be sure to take the right steps. You may need to acquire various qualifications by undertaking various courses to become a crime scene cleaner. Doing this would ensure you gain the necessary knowledge and skills and make your business more credible.
