What Are Cleaning Franchises?

A cleaning franchise is a business which operates in the cleaning sector that is available through a franchise model. A franchisor who owns the intellectual property for the franchise, has made the branding and proven system of operation, available to franchisees whom invest in the business in exchange for the rights to trade as them in their area. Cleaning franchises are cleaning businesses which trade in multiple areas (territories) under the same branding and business structure as the franchisor and other franchisees.

There are many types of cleaning franchises and we’ll look at these below. Meanwhile the franchisee of the cleaning franchise will, in their area, conduct marketing in accordance with the brand guidelines, to build the business that they effectively own. Provided the franchisee follows the rules set out by the franchisor, and consistently follows the guidelines for a successful business, the franchisee can enjoy being their own boss and being in control.

According to Tidychoice, “Figures provided by the British Cleaning Council (“BCC”) show that the cleaning industry contributes over £55.5 billion to the UK economy”. Be a part of this huge marketplace with a cleaning franchise.

Types of Cleaning Franchises

The cleaning franchise sector is incredibly diverse. There are so many different types of cleaning franchises and many of which are management franchises – businesses where you manage a team of cleaners but not actually do any cleaning yourself. Below are some popular types of cleaning franchise opportunities.

Domestic Cleaning Franchises

These businesses usually involve scheduling appointments with clients, and cleaning is usually carried out by staff. A management-type franchise, domestic cleaning franchises will usually see you manage a workforce whilst not doing any cleaning yourself – unless you wish to.

Domestic cleaning franchises could be anything from cleaning a person’s house inside, through to window cleaning franchises and maybe even chimney sweeping franchises too. Although many might assume that a chimney sweeping franchise is only busy during certain times of the year, these van based franchises usually offer various other services too like security installation. Check with the franchisor to see what services their franchisees offer to clients. Other types of domestic cleaning include driveway cleaning franchises, gutter clearing franchises, laundry and extra help franchises and more.

Oven Cleaning Franchises

Another type of hugely popular, and hugely successful franchise, is oven cleaning. Oven cleaning businesses are usually van based. You’ll travel around in a branded van (which you may already own, or can hire from the franchisor for a monthly or one-off fee) along with chemicals and cleaning equipment cleaning ovens. Many oven cleaning franchises aren’t management franchises. Not only does this mean you can get to know your clients better, but you can also maintain full control of your overheads. Minimal staff mean minimal wages and maximum profit.

Earning potential varies between oven cleaning franchises, but with two cleans a day at £50, working five days a week, you’ve got £2,000 a month. But why stop there? You could easily earn over £1,000 per week! The earning potential is unlimited and the more cleans you do, the more money you’ll make. Clients will usually want their oven cleaned again a few months later, so you have a potential repeat income too.

Commercial Cleaning

Commercial cleaning franchises are usually management franchises, but that doesn’t mean you can’t help out and do some work yourself. Commercial cleaning could again include window cleaning or interior cleaning, but there are many computer and equipment sanitation franchises too. Following the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic, good hygiene has become more important than ever both at home and in the workplace. All good businesses will want effective and safe working environments for their employees. Minimal risk = minimal sick days and more productive workforce. Commercial cleaning franchises usually offer the opportunity for repeat income.

Vehicle Cleaning Franchises

People love their cars and they’ll spend hundreds a year keeping their car in tip top shape. With car washes charging anyway from £5 up to £250 depending on the level of cleaning required (from a simple body wash right through to performance valeting), there is a staggering market opportunity. Car cleaning franchises are very much in high demand.

Benefits of Cleaning Franchises

One of the main benefits of cleaning franchises is that they’re usually very low cost. The typical investment for a cleaning franchise would usually include a starter kit of chemicals for X number of clients, along with uniforms, a booking system and a selection of marketing kits to get you started (like Google Ads, flyers etc). Be sure to browse cleaning franchises and find out exactly what each franchise offers.

Cleaning franchises also offer the opportunity to work from home, work your own hours and offer a flexible lifestyle. Because many cleaning franchises are management opportunities (where you manage the staff), when you carry out your own work is entirely up to you. Spend time with the family during the day, work in the evening. Or take your kids to school and work 10-2. Many cleaning franchises give you the opportunity to be your own boss and take control of your life.

Be sure to check with each franchise through due diligence and see what each one offers, in terms of what’s included and what level of training and support you receive.

Find your perfect cleaning franchise today, start earning a decent wage and run a business you can be proud of.
