Cool Hi, New & Wanted to Introduce Myself

Hi, My name is Dawn and I own a small cleaning service called "Mom's Cleaning Service" in Royston, Georgia. My oldest son came up with the name.

I started my business 1 1/2 years ago after being a stay home mom with my youngest son for 2 years. This was a great way to start making some money and be able to set my own hours.

The house cleaning has been going great but I am now wanting to try my hand at New Construction and Remodeling Clean up. I have done a few houses for my cousin and I have done a few with another girl in the Hartwell area.

I have been going to all the new construction sites in the area either talking with the supervisor/owner or leaving a card in the front door. I hope this will do some good. I have also left cards at the local lumber yards and hardware stores. I am planning to run ads in the local papers in the coming weeks.

I am also wanting to start getting some of the vacation rentals in the Lake Hartwell area. I have been helping a girl from Hartwell this summer with her houses and I decided if she can do it, I can.

I'm not sure how to find the owners of the vacation rentals and how to get in touch with them. If anyone has any ideas, let me know.

Also, if anyone has any ideas on how to expand my small business, drop me a line. I really would appreciate it.

Thank you in Advance, and God Bless,
Dawn

Dawn, welcome to the site! Thanks for joining.

If your targeting large home builders I would suggest finding their local office and speaking with one of their office staff about who sub contractors should talk to. Usually construction managers on site do not hire the subs so it's better to go to the main office.
The biggest draw back is the insurance requirements most builders have.

BTW, Lake Hartwell is awesome! Where do you live? I went to college in Toccoa Ga.
