Are you willing to look for customers on your own?

Can you trust people and can you delegate work to others?

Can you manage finance?

Can you manage money wisely?

Can you handle customer’s complaints well?

If you are willing to do all the above for many years to come, then you are ready to venture forth into this business.


How much will it cost to start the cleaning service business?
