You're in Atlanta, good luck. LOL It's hard to find workers for this business in Atlanta. My advice, 1. Set strict rules for workers soliciting themselves on the side, 2. Check their backgrounds THOROUGHLY, many lie on applications and have never cleaned, 3. Even if they have experience train them, 4. Hold them accountable for supplies, 5. Give them a probationary period.
Atlanta is a fast city and the cost of living varies. Therefore, because the unemployment rate is 10 percent you are going to come across many things. Many jobseekers, former cleaners included are looking for the next best thing to get them by.
I would stay in $9 - $12 an hour range. And $12 is pushing it. I always wanted to pay my workers decent, the problem is with the overhead of doing everything the right way and in a professional manner didn't leave much room for revenue.
Lastly, there are TONS of cleaning services in Atlanta, you can look through the daily deals, see them pop up sporadically, look at Kudzu, Google, hole in the wall "cleaning businesses." etc
From my experience, because of the job market, everyone I hired was trying to start their own business on the sly, and when I worked for a cleaning service I was trying to start my own.
This is just me though, maybe you will have an entirely different outlook. But definitely watch for workers taking customers on the side, it is VERY popular in the Atlanta are.
