If you think your cleaning skills are so good that you could become a pro, you’re probably wondering how you can start your own cleaning business. As with any other endeavor, you need to start with research. If you live in Richmond, Antioch, Concord and the neighboring areas, look up “part-time housekeeping jobs near me” to get an idea of the available cleaning business options in your area and get to know your competition. Next, come up with a business plan: do you plan to have more employees, how you will fund your business and what your marketing plan will be. However, before you take any of these steps, you need to check the licensing requirements and other state regulations.
If you’re cleaning for a family member for a small fee, you won’t need a license. However, if you intend to have more clients and be paid a set rate for your work, you’ll need to be properly licensed. The kind of license you will need for your cleaning business will depend on the state you’re in. Some states will require you to have a regular business license, while some will require a specific cleaning business license. Either way, running a licensed business will enable tax tracking and grant funding, as well as getting surety bonds and license bonds for your business.
Once you’ve researched the relevant rules for your state, visit your local municipal government and check whether you fulfill the requirements to start a cleaning business. If everything is in order, you’ll need to fill in the necessary applications, pay the fees and wait for your license. In most states, you’ll also need to file a “Doing Business As” (DBA) if you intend to use a different name for your business.
