How to start & grow a cleaning company

Starting a cleaning business can cost very little and require no special skills apart from some organisational ability. The British Cleaners Association Factsheets on starting a cleaning business could be just what you are looking for. Perhaps you have thought about getting a job cleaning. There is no reason why you cannot start a cleaning business instead of getting a job or start a cleaning business alongside it.

are you able to communicate with people easily?
are you able to do repetitive work?
can you work on your own?
