Hey C&T, how long have you been cleaning commercial jobs? Ive gotten several residential jobs from my commercial accounts. The local papers do well and word of mouth has been great over the years. Also get your Name and number on your vehicles.
Regarding working with competitors, hmm, Mr Moms has exchanged clients with another service, we also give each other jobs, say I get a call from a client in the other cleaners area I will give it to them and vice versa. Mind you, we know the other Services owner very well and they are far enough away. We also have an agreement for helpiing each other out if one of us has a crises. I would suggest going the temp service route in times of needed extra help.
