A young company

Sup everyone!

I first launched my cleaning company in 2012 in Minnesota, I ended up landing a few contracts with more established cleaning companies and did apartment turnovers for months, initially I was excited and things were great, until the company I was working for started paying me late... on top of not paying me good.

Needless to say things sort of fell apart after the 3rd month of being paid late I decided to end our business. Here we are in 2015 and I am now 25 years old, still wanting to operate the business, however when I relaunch I want to set myself up for success, I am interested in commercial work, and wouldn't mind doing apartment turnovers, or cleaning foreclosed properties.

I guess the biggest issue is always landing contracts, and finding the best marketing methods along with the best start up strategies, All advice is appreciated!

Carpet cleaning is a tough business. I quickly learned it is a low ball wins the jobs type of business. Seems as though most carpet cleaners are having a slow going out of business sale. Which means... if they bid low enough long enough they will soon be out of business. But every now and then it's possible to get in a good area and do good. Atleast for awhile
