No doubt the dream of owning your own business appeals to you, set your own hours, take a vacation day, no boss harassing you, making lot’s of money! Many are surprised to find out that successful window cleaning business can easily gross more than $100,000 per year. However if it were that easy many would do it. Cleaning window’s is actually the easy part, the hard part is everything else.
This article won’t teach you how to wash windows ( you can practice at home) but instead will help you see all the potential that window washing presents. First how do you start?
- Canvass neighborhoods. Print up some fliers with your name and number perhaps offering a Special Deal. Like free screen cleaning. The best part about this is pick the houses you would feel comfortable cleaning first. Residential window cleaning is great because you get paid on the spot, a good window washer should make about $300 per day cleaning homes which could be one home or two or three depending on the size and how you choose to price your services.
- Place an ad. Craigslist is great because it’s free marketing is very expensive and this is a way to get your name out in your local community with your window cleaning business. You could also use the newspaper or a form of direct maillook here.
Another avenue to pursue is commercial window cleaning. This can range from store fronts to industrial buildings all the way to high rise buildings found in large cities.
Store fronts are the least paying but are great for learning how to clean window s quickly which is key. Store front window cleaning pays well but you need a volume of stores perhaps trying to gain many stores in a local strip mall saving time because you won’t need to drive all over.
Industrial building pay well and are able to be cleaned usually in one day. This type of commercial window cleaning can be found via property managers or by soliciting building maintenance supervisors.
