  • New Business

    I was in the cleaning business for 10 years as a worker. My friend and I are planning on starting a post construction cleaning business, but I have been out of the business for so long that I am not sure what the going rate is or how to charge my perspective customers. I live in the PA area and at one point I did try to get a residential cleaning service started but there are not many people in this area that want their house cleaned so I figured with all the housing construction going on in the area that would be a better area to start in. Can someone tell me where I would go or what I can do to find out the going rate for this type of business.

    Janitorial cleaning rates

    commercial cleaning rates are about half of retail. If you where charging $45 to $55 an hour to clean homes ($.12 per sq ft), expect to only to be able to charge about $22.50 - $27.50 per hour ($.06 per sq ft) for new construction and wait 30 days to get paid. You will need to have both types of customers.

      The lengths entrepreneurs would go to in a bid to further their business have been revealed in a new surveyAccording to the research, 87% would work as late as required and sacrifice an evening in with the family, 59% would cancel romantic plans with partners to secure a deal, and almost one in three (31%) would miss important meetings about their child‘s education if they thought it would lead to more business. Over half (54%) would forsake a family holiday if they felt it would help businessThe survey also revealed how far owner/managers would go to keep the business afloat. Over half (55%) would lay off staff and take on their workload in addition to their own while 41% would consider taking on a part-time job.

          starting a new cleaning business

          Getting into cleaning carpet, air duct cleaning, upholstery cleaning, mattress cleaning, tile and grout cleaning, and pressure washing pays between $35 to $100 per hour. Performing water extraction and structural drying jobs can pay between $250 to $1000 an hour. The initial equipment investment is low (can be under $3000) and you can work from home full or part time.
