Book Description

Cleaning for Profit covers all aspects of starting and growing a professional cleaning company. Learn to be a cleaning technician by discovering the exact science of cleaning, straight from the author who holds multiple professional certifications in the industry. Cleaning for Profit provides a business education one might expect from a MBA program but specifically tailored to a 40 billion dollar annual US industry. The book reveals many secrets for instance did you know that no single player has yet developed a monopoly in the cleaning industry?. This is the kind of material one would expect to receive if he or she were to shell out thousands of dollars for a franchise. Tables, worksheets and examples from the author's repeated success are provided to facilitate the actual planning and roll out for a new company or a company wanting to grow..Cleaning for Profit is sure to help even established companies seeking an edge in the marketplace. Included within the pages are tips from over twenty years of experience winning and maintaining cleaning contracts for both residential and commercial contracting. If someone were to gift an inexperienced individual an actual going business complete with assets, a client list and the rest of it, the hard truth is that the brand itself would most likely be lost. Peter Drucker said it best: "The most important factor of production is and always has been Knowledge". For the cleaning industry this is that book. From general office cleaning to nineteen other niche areas covered within Cleaning for Profit. Bound to become a groundbreaking compilation of reference material for all cleaning professionals. In addition to the secret specialties presented within its pages a thorough presentation is provided to assist readers at starting a maid service, janitorial service, or a window cleaning service. All in a single volume!
