Domestic cleaning on the rise – a tale of two successful cleaning franchises

The Cleaning industry might not seem like the most “glamorous” franchise option, but it can be a very lucrative business if you run it right. Many cleaning franchises offer management packages – no marigolds required.

Keep reading to learn more about the UK cleaning industry and two successful cleaning franchises.

A booming industry

Unlike the past, where domestic help was considered to be a privilege of the wealthy, today it is more of a necessity for the middle class, says CEO of Molly Maid Pam Bader. In this day and age, periods of free time are few and far between. People simply don’t have time for tasks like cleaning. As a result of this, they increasingly hire cleaners and other domestic staff like gardeners. According to the research conducted by Churchill Home Insurance, one in seven Brits employ domestic help. Indeed, the busy rhythms of modern lives have been quite helpful for the cleaning industry. Despite the lack of time to clean, people still want their homes to be neat and tidy, which is why there is a demand for residential cleaning services, as well as commercial cleaning services, in the UK.

Help around the house

First of all, having a cleaner who regularly comes around is a great way to save time on household chores. Work-life balance is a priority for many members of UK middle class, and having domestic help helps them maintain it. Investing in cleaning services and other domestic help services can make a real difference in the life of a person or their family.

Secondly, modern cleaning businesses, such as the two we’ll talk about below, use eco-friendly products that aren’t damaging the environment or people’s health. Often, such products are expensive to buy in the supermarkets, and these costs, coupled with the time it normally takes to clean a house, can be bothersome for a homeowner. However, hiring domestic help would not only help you save time on cleaning, but the packages would also include usage of eco-friendly products by the cleaners.
