i think 1000$ is a tricky price, you should make a list of everything you need to buy and establish before you do. Sometimes it takes a higher price, sometimes less, it really depends on your business skills.

If you already have some basic supplies especially your own vacuum then maybe the 1000.00 will work,but then you will only be able to put a down payment on your insurance and pay by the month.
Now if you are not planning to supply any products or tools then go for it! as all you need to do is show up.
Coincidentally that was how I began.
As I wanted to be able to do janitorial work and then construction cleaning I had some money to be able to buy products and my insurance.
So if you are just starting out and money is tight just offer your services to people who will pay by the hour or job, but have all the chemicals
and tools already.
Remember everyone has a tight budget when starting out.

It depends on the volume of the business. If you want to buy all the advance tools then it will not be eneough

Lots of good info on this thread. My short answer is yes but you need to be creative with your marketing as after all your other costs you wont have much left with that $1,000. Now if you have a part time job on the side and can add in a few hundred dollars each month until things really get going then you're in a much better position.

$1000 is ceartinaly enough to get started. I had a Jani king franchise.. I still own it to. I need to sell it BTW. Anyways, unless you want to strip and wax floors you can start a cleaning businesss. All you need is a few backpack vacums some trash cans some signs rags ect. Unless your client is going to provide thier own supplies. You will hash that out in the contract. And you can charge 25 cents per sqft of cleaning.

I gave it some thought and although the products aren't as good, generally the Dollar Tree store would be a good place to pick up some cleaners on the cheap.The big costs are in vacuum cleaners and pressure cleaners so again I would begin cleaning homes as you can use the homeowner's vacuum.I would still get an insurance policy even a small one that you could pay by the month it could keep you out of trouble in the event of an accident. Getting started is the hardest part.
