22 w/ a cleaning business
I live in South Miami, Fl and I'm currently in the process of saving money to get the legal documents to start my own legit professional cleaning service (DBA, Tax Receipt, Bank Account, etc). I also work as a residential gate security guard and there are Real Estate Leasing Agents that have told me once I get my business up and running we can sit down and discuss contracts. With that being said, Vacant homes for sale will be my target business.
Now I work full time and go to school full time and would only be able to do the work myself, maybe, two days out of the week. If and when my clientele begins to need more attention than that, How should I hire my employees? How much of what I charge should I pay the employees? Should I require them to have training prior to me hiring them or train them myself, or both? How do I make sure they are doing the quality job I'm paying them for and not bringing down my business? Are there any licenses or certifications I need for me or my business? If there are licenses/certifications for cleaning (which I don't think there is and I've also looked it up but haven't really found any - just some through some supposed "Associations" I can't tell if they're scams or not), which are they so I can look into them? Also, how do I ensure the safety of myself and future clients when going into these place alone or n pairs?
I know that may be a bit much but they are real questions I'd really appreciate answers for
