Hello!

There is a lot of good information here about running a cleaning business. Spent a couple hours this morning reading through the posts and found some interesting topics. Glad to be part of this community.

Yep I know the area and have been out there a few times. My wife has a small residential cleaning company cleaning homes in Vally Ranch and Coppell. This area is exploding like crazy with new homes and apartment buildings.

Unfortunately I live in what will soon be called The Gate Way To The Metroplex. We have so much construction over here they are having a hard time routing traffic..... 820/35w is under construction so they routed them down Beach Street and now they have Beach Street torn up so people have no where to drive. So many houses are popping up they have more roads torn up to upgrade the sewer lines so it is making it even worse. But once they get all the road construction done in a few years it will be no problem getting around. I sold my cleaning business and am starting a lawn service..... I hope to have 3 crews going by the end of the summer. 18 years in cleaning was enough torture for me.

I go all over all the time so I'm in your area a lot. Tomorrow afternoon (Saturday) the lil woman is leaving for Madrid so I have to head to the airport then through your neck of the woods to Grand Prairie for a domino game called Mexican Train.

When you had your cleaning biz, how many cleaners and clients did you have, if you don't mind me asking?

This year should be exciting for you now that you are starting a lawn care business. I have no doubt you'll have plenty of customers because of how well the local economy is here.

By the way could you pm me your email address I have a cleaning question that I'd like to ask you. (your opinion). Thanks

My email address has been around the block more times than I have.

Normally people ask questions... I give them answers... it's not what they want to hear... they think I'm an idiot and stop emailing me... 2 years later they are wondering how I could foresee their future.
