The market is very competitive, just like many other niches in the cleaning industry. I always hear other cleaners say builders or construction cleaning is easy to get into and doesn't require any skill, this isnt the case at all!
The job actually requires a lot of skill and expertise to do properly, eg. I see many cleaners with no idea on construction cleaning what so ever go into the industry only to end up causing damage to peoples homes. eg. scratched, using acid on marble tiles etc.
To do this properly, there is actually a lot of research that needs to be done, building materials change all the time, you need to ensure you continue to work closely with tradies, builders and manufacturers (tile manufacturers, glass etc) to stay up to date on cleaning methods. Technology and specialised chemicals used in the industry is changing all the time.
In addition, builders usually delay payments so you end up spending 5k upfront doing the job on labour and chemicals and then sometimes have to wait months to get paid (builders can't pay you until they get paid by the homeowners) to them, you are just another trade.
