if you start a cleaning business and do the cleaning yourself, you are pretty much limited to the hourly rate you can charge customers as being your income. Worse than that a good amount of your time has to go into overhead for sales, bookkeeping etc. So you net will be even less. Only way to generate substantial income is by having a work force that does the labor.

Does every cleaning business work per hour basis? Or they may work on contract as well??

You can also charge a flat rate fee based on the number of bedrooms or square footage. Many clients prefer a flat rate as they know exactly what it will cost them.

Flat rate is the way to go

I usually focus on quoting flat rate fees for my clients. As was previously mentioned, they like to know the total amount up front, no hidden costs...works well for me with a small cleaning company.

Flat rates are usually good. no one client want any surprise fees or any hidden charges and i think this will work well with any kind of small and large businesses

You should calculate in a month what will you do, what thing you need to buy, any payment while working, them decide price for your service. You will know your earn in month.

Homesteadroad, if your question is what's possible. ..then, the sky is the limit.

Find a system of processes that work, hire employees to clean, administrative staff to answer phones and a manager to run the office. Train them to use said processes. Repeat. Sell your system of processes as a franchise and train them to use said processes. Repeat. Sell the whole thing. Millions is possible...

But I think your question is more about how much is possible for you to make right now. Right?

That's up you. Do it once. Write down how you did it. Do it again the same way. Tweak it, keep track. Repeat. Hire employees and train.

Educate yourself and move forward consistently. The faster you move through the process, the more money you make.

Expect zero income with zero action. Go outside and find a customer where they already are.

Before you start thinking of starting this business I suggest you read a few books on starting a business. If you don't have a background on figuring out potential revenue in a carpet cleaning business then I think it would be very helpful to get a firm foundation first. In my opinion it will save you a lot of grief going forward. Maybe a community college class???

If you have good contacts & some of the orders to work on than you can earn decent to get started with.

In my opinion, Start up should not worry about this for atleast 2 years to understand the business & market position.

I prefer services that charge per hour as opposed to per square foot. The average owner doesn't know how many square foot each room is and homeowners don't like surprises when it comes to expenses.
