Why did you become a Cleaner?

Hi, I'm very new here, doing research for our blog. My office manager gave me the quest of finding the different reasons people become Professional Cleaners, I've had no luck just google-ing it, so I thought I would join here and ask people why they became cleaners. I personally just like to clean, I can't help it, I just like things nice and neat and clean, I like to think of it as helping people who don't like to, or don't have time to or just physically can't do it. Luckily most of our clients totally appreciate it. So that's all, just kind of a poll for a blog
thank you for your time

Hey Christina, I become a cleaner because my dad owned a janitorial company from before I was born until he retired. I've tried other jobs and businesses but nothing has been as good to me or consistent as cleaning, especially commercial cleaning.

It tends to be a more consistent occupation, the work isn't hard on you physically, and every job is unique

I work with Mr. Homecare, and what brought me here was that ever since I was a child, I always required my room to be clean. The slightest stain on my wall would send me into a frenzy. As time passed by, I realized that I really love doing what I do. This is what drove me to take it up as a part of my career. To help people satisfy their urge to have a clean house the way I satisfied mine. It is also worth noting that I believe that we get as we give. So deep down I hope that delivering clean homes to customers will also keep me motivated to have my home clean at all times as well.

I went into cleaning for an interesting reason. I am actually a Registered Nurse, and worked in that field for 30 years. Then, my health went downhill, and I ended up on Disability...back in 2006. When I finally got healthier again, and I looked around my own home and saw how grubby it had gotten, since I could not clean it. I used cleaning as a form of physical and mental therapy, and I was not very good at it at first. But over time, I figured out how to do things properly and discovered (to my surprise!) that I actually LIKED cleaning. And that is when I started my business. Cleaning is a physical job, just as Nursing is. It helps keep me fit and healthy, plus I earn enough money to live a lot more easily.

To make money. Though to be precise I didn't become a cleaner, I started a cleaning business. Being a cleaner can only make you so much money. Starting a cleaning business can mean a good income for yourself and stable, well paying employment for your cleaning staff.

As a side note, I really LIKE cleaning. It gives me great satisfaction to do a job well, and see and smell the clean results.

I become a cleaner because it's my passion! I started my cleaning service in New York 5 years ago, on my own. And now I have 10 employees, and I clean 60 m$ apartments.

My goal is NOT to have employees. I want to ensure that the work is done to my standards, and do not want to deal with employees who may not be as motivated as I am. That is just me, and everyone is different.

I cater to people who have pets, especially cats, since I an a "Cat Person" all the way. Cat owners worry about the house cleaner who doesnt like pets, who is upset about kitty litter, cat throw up, etc etc. I publicize my liking for all animals, and especially cats.Over time, nearly ALL my customers have pets, and most of them have cats. There is a good business in this, but you have to truly LIKE being around people's pets. You cannot fake this.
