The contract cleaning sector is growing fast in the UK. So much so, that pundits believe that by 2020 it will have risen by an incredible £500 million, with a further 6% growth in the number of companies operating in this industry.
Much of this success has been attributed to the way in which companies are carving out niche operating sectors in commercial cleaning. The use of modern technology such as automated floor polishing equipment has helped keep costs manageable. There is also a growing band of “green” cleaning firms, using environmentally friendly products. Some of the most successful companies in contract cleaning are keen to make their business model available to enterprising franchisees.
This includes, for example, industrial and commercial cleaning firm MCS and Thomas Cleaning which offers cleaning services for a wide range of types of clients including business properties. Cleaning Doctor and Express Business Group support a network of domestic and commercial cleaning businesses. Commercial cleaning entrepreneurs are being sought by Total Clean and NIC Services Group, whereas Techclean specialises in cleaning computer equipment.
Apart from the kudos of being backed by a national and regional operator and brand name, you will also receive business and technical help that can be invaluable. Referrals are often provided by parent companies, and you will receive training and support on stringent health and safety and indemnity issues.
Profits and opportunities may be good in contract cleaning, but mistakes can be costly. Having the backing of a company with a strong track record and industry insights can safeguard your new business start-up from some early problems.
Another way to make sure your commercial cleaning franchise is a success is to let us help match you with the right parent company, one offering you a sparkling future and fresh start.
