The cleaning industry is a growing business and it is not just because people are too lazy to clean up their own spaces, or that they can afford to pay others to do household chores. The cleaning service industry is boosted by a lot of other factors such as companies turning to outsourcing janitorial services to lower business expenditures, and households gearing towards double income status more and more each day.

For the typical home, gone are the days when the wife gets to stay home and take care of the household while the husband earns money. Because of the current economic changes, the society’s empowerment of women, and the high divorce rates, maid services have bloomed in each and every city and town. Nobody has time for cleaning! People have to drive to work, finish deadlines and stay up late, take care of finances; and all of these things add up to pure exhaustion. No one wants to have to worry about cleaning up when all they want to do is to put up their feet and doze off in front of the TV. Even young professionals have a need for day maids since young adults now move out of their parents’ house as soon as they can afford to rent out a place of their own. These young workers might need to have a part time job aside from their regular job, or to put in more hours so they can climb up the corporate ladder. They would not have time to worry about dusting, and mopping, and vacuuming; they just would not have the energy to!

Parents with young kids also have a need for a cleaning service. Even if the mom or the dad stays home to look after the children, a lot of extra help would be needed for them to be able to keep a tidy house. Just imagine having to take care of a baby, a toddler, and a pre-schooler all at the same time. Even if the kids go off to day care everyday, the mess they leave behind, and the mess that they will create as soon as they get home is really something to contend with. To add to that, the parent would need to cook breakfast, lunch, dinner, and school snacks, drive the kids to and from daycare, and so on and so forth. If they have to clean their homes too, then their days will never end!

If you think that you have a knack for cleaning and supervising it, then building a cleaning service business may be right for you. There are men and women out there who get a kick out of de-cluttering people’s spaces and you may be one of them. You can opt to have a janitorial service and choose clients in the corporate world, or you can choose to start a maid service, focusing primarily on cleaning houses. Both of these types of cleaning service are fulfilling financially.
