Getting into commercial cleaning

Hi all,
My parents started a residential cleaning company 20 years ago when I was 12 years old. We drove around neighborhoods handing out flyers, mainly higher end homes. Sooner or later , people started calling, and the business took off . Lot of the business was and still is word of mouth from satisfied customers. 99% of the houses they do, are cleaned by them, and my wife, who helps em out on a regular basis. Other than that, no employees. Anyway, we've always talked about getting into commercial, hiring people , but never got around figuring out how to score accounts, or who would be the one looking for new business, so I offered to be a part time salesman. I have a full time job, that has nothing to do with cleaning , but always wanted to come back into the family business one day, so maybe this is a track back in. My question is, are sales reps usually paid by percentage and how much? Is it a percentage of the monthly revenue or the yearly revenue off the contract? And I'm imagining I'd be going door to door. Lot of industrial parks around here. Any advice would be greatly appreciated . Thanks
