Office Cleaning At Night Middlesex

Professional Cleaning Services in Middlesex

One of the steadiest service businesses going is also one of the most invisible. If you work in a Middlesex office or store you’re probably used to coming in every morning and seeing clean carpets, empty ashtrays and freshly mopped woodwork. In fact, most Middlesex stores and offices would be pretty dreary places to work if you didn’t see them sparkling clean every day.

Carpet Cleaning

The equipment you need to start this business is minimal: a good vacuum cleaner, mops, brooms, cleaning cloths, sponges, buckets and a few different types of detergents and grease-cutting fluids. If this list sounds familiar, it should. These are the same cleaning tools found in almost every household, and there’s no reason you can’t use what you already probably own – at least for starters.

There are several ways to acquire customers: small ads in your local Middlesex newspaper, a listing in the Yellow Pages (under “Janitor Service” and/or “House Cleaning”), printed circulars. But the most effective way to get customers is through personal solicitation. Always remember that you are offering a service, and that means servicing your Middlesex clients as well as their places of business.

One of the attractive features about starting this kind of cleaning business in Middlesex is that the work is done at night. You could do the whole thing yourself, without any employees, during the trial period, and still keep your day job. When you are ready to hire people in Middlesex, you have a rich source of employees from college students who want part-time work after classes, as well as men and women who want to supplement their incomes but can only work at night.

The growth potential for this business is obvious. The points to remember are to use good personal selling techniques and to carefully price each job before committing yourself to a months-long contract. As your business grows you'll be in a position to bid on major cleaning contracts for large companies, each one alone being worth thousands in profit.

In some parts of the country window cleaners are able to clean commercial and residential windows year round regardless of what month it is, because the seasons in their part of the country are much milder and more constant.

Well that's great for them, but what about the rest of us? Is the sentiment I hear expressed most often in regards to this topic. But I have good news for you. Just because its winter time doesn't mean that your income has to die, it just means that you have to adapt and expand on the services you offer.

Before I get into describing some of the various ways a window cleaner can make money during the winter, let me remind you that while the residential market may die down during the winter months, the commercial market still continues to provide stable income. Why? Because commercial businesses need to maintain clean storefronts and office spaces in order to make them inviting for customers. This means that they need your window cleaning services as much if not more during the winter than they do in the summer.

Pressure Washing

This is another service that can be offered year round, but can also be very lucrative in the winter months. Water mixed with dust and dirt makes mud and mud gets everywhere in the wintertime. Especially in areas where the city transportation department spreads dirt over the roads to prevent people from sliding on the ice; that dirt has to go somewhere and a large percentage of it winds up in parking lots and against commercial businesses. These businesses become very excited when you offer a pressure washing service to clean up their sidewalks and walkways.

The services outline above are just but a fraction of the services a window cleaning business can offer its customers during the winter months. This article is not meant to be exhaustive, but rather to help get you thinking about what you can offer your customers to make additional money in the slow season.

If you are seriously considering cleaning windows for a living or just want to clean some windows in your own house properly, then you will want to use a squeegee. If you've used a bottle of window cleaner and a cloth before, you may be wondering what professional window cleaners use. Hint, it's not a little blue spray bottle.

In fact, professional window cleaners rarely use a spray bottle unless they are merely touching up an area. What they use is a bucket of warm water with a few drops of concentrated solution, an absorbent scrubbing sleeve, and of course, a squeegee.

"But what is in that bucket?", you may ask. Well, that depends on the window cleaner. For the majority of them it is just water and a squirt of dish soap (Dawn, Joy and Palmolive are favorites). Many add a 1/2 cup to a cup of ammonia to help cut grease and prevent streaks.

Next time try this. Fill up a five gallon bucket with 4 gallons of water. Then add 4 teaspoons of TSP and 3 teaspoons of your favorite dish soap. You will have days of glide without all the foam you've come to resent.

A few precautions, never mix TSP with ammonia. Be aware that it may dry your hands out considerably. Be careful when climbing a ladder, TSP can make your hands very slippery. You may get so good at cleaning windows that all your friends resent you.
