Over the past few years, the cleaning industry in the UK has been continually growing with 2.45 million households using domestic cleaning services.
As the industry is in such a stable state, there has never been a better time to invest in a cleaning franchise. With a value of around £2.9 billion, the potential for investors to see great returns is exciting and for those entrepreneurs who want to work from home, regaining the balance between work and life can become a reality.
A clean house is a high priority for UK adults, with 60% saying they desire a clean home and 40% saying they clean every day. There is always a demand for cleaning services both in the domestic and commercial sectors, ensuring you’ll have no trouble growing your business. Choosing the right franchise for you doesn’t have to be difficult and here at Reed Commercial, we have an extensive range of cleaning franchise options so you can find the perfect fit for you.
The Perfect Franchise For You
If you’re looking to focus solely on domestic cleaning services, you’ll find a selection of franchises that specialise in the home market. Domestique, Molly Maid and Bright & Beautiful provide intimate and flexible cleaning services throughout the UK and have proven business models that ensure you’ll see a return on your investment.
For a larger scale business, you may want to acquire a commercial cleaning franchise that provides cleaning services to offices, factories and industrial zones. Franchises such as Minister Cleaning Services, Ecocleen Services and Jani-King all provide cleaning services to businesses, allowing you to build strong connections with your clients that tend to last for years at a time.
Specialising even further may be a great way to ensure you aren’t competing with other cleaning businesses. Washforce UK is a franchise that provides exterior cleaning services, so people can have the outside of their houses cleaned professionally while Chemex International is the world largest and most established supplier of cleaning, hygiene and infection control products. Oven Rescue Group and Oven Wizards both provide targeted oven cleaning services, which many hospitality businesses and certain homes regularly require. PuriFry also services the hospitality industry, providing cleaning services for fryers and filtration systems, plus waste oil removal. Finally, Wilkins Chimney Sweep delivers stellar services in fireplace and chimney cleaning. These targeted and specialised franchises are a great way to get a strong foothold in the market, as most general cleaning services don’t provide these services.
All The Support You Need
To excel at growing your franchise, all you need is a small degree of business savvy and the drive to continue. If you aren’t experienced in the world of cleaning or business, you can still develop a thriving franchise as you’re always provided with extensive training and assistance when it comes to creating your business plan. You’ll never feel alone or unsupported in your ventures and you’ll be sure to develop excellent business skills as your franchise grows.
The UK cleaning industry’s outlook is strong, so you can be sure that you’re investing in a market that is turning heads. June George from Dolly Char (one of the available franchises at Reed Commercial) said that even during the financial crisis the industry was still thriving1. The brilliant nature of the industry is that homes and businesses will always need to be cleaned, guaranteeing there will always be a demand for your services.
