New Here. Saying hello :)
This site is an absolutely great resource and has everything i was looking for.
My name is David and I am starting up my own cleaning business. I worked with a friend of mine cleaning Dunkin Donuts' for a while and now i decided to go solo. I have allready obtained a business certificate and business bank account under Extreme Clean Team, commercial and residential. I also have 1000 business cards printed out and ready to go.
I was wondering if anyone can give me some tips/pointers and lead me in the right direction on how to proceed.
I dont have a van yet so i will be transporting all my equipment in my personal sports car. I am in the process of putting up adds with the yellow book/yellowpages as well as craigslist. I was wondering what kind of cleaning solutions should be used and where are the best places to get them from while starting up. I am also looking at purchasing the proteam backpack vaccum, except dont know which one is the better one.
Another thing that i am looking to find is what kind of forms/templates i need to get and where to get them. I dont have experience in running a business so its a little difficult for me.
My main goal is to acquire commercial contracts, especially ones where you go in and clean at night.
Anyway, any tips/feedback would be greatly appreciated. I am going to go through the forums now and check back here later.
Nice to see you all,
Extreme Clean Team
