I clean alone (I don't work for a company) but I also wear scrubs. Here in Florida we can get them at Dollar General for around $8-$12 per item (shirts or pants) I can't afford a specific logo or color, so I just get what I can, but my clients have said that they like the "professional" look of the scrubs. They are comfortable, they resist stains, and I don't have to worry about messing up my everyday clothes. And the pockets are good for carrying an extra rag in, or picking up those little pieces of stuff that shouldn't go into the vacuum cleaner. Plus, if you keep your receipts, they are tax-deductible!

there are a lot of ways to look professional and a lot of it is with the body you're stuffing in the clothes. depending on the job and weather what i wear changes. the only central theme is with an identifiable shirt with my business logo

When we built our business originally we wore what ever we had on. Then we had t-shirts with the logo made. I'm having some new shirts made next week and I'm going to have some fun with them. Not sure if you've ever seen that cartoon that says: DOGGY HELL and has a picture of the devil with a vacuum cleaner with dogs barking at the vacuum. Even when we had over 200 customers, none of them cared if we came in clothes or naked as long as we cleaned well.

I think what matters more is what vehicle you pull up in. When I had my Mercury Mountaineer we had more people say no than when we pull up in the work vans. I quickly stopped going on bids in a nice vehicle. The other day my work van broke down so I had to drive the brand new van and all the customers commented on was how pretty the new van is. The next time my old van breaks down I'm renting another OLD van to drive for work.

I own a cleaning company and all of my employees have a winter uniform and a summer uniform. I believe it looks more professional.

I wear scrubs. They are cheap to buy, look neat and professional and if you get bleach on them, not a big deal.

Our uniform consists of polo shirts with our company logo and for the pants we use dickies brand. We have a washer and dryer at work so employees can launder their uniforms or leave them and we will launder them. We work in influential neighborhoods so its a must to wear something that sets us apart from the rest.

Company uniform.

Customers like to see some professional cleaners, they would be relieved if they see the cleaners wearing the uniform.

I work for East riding of Yorkshire council as a casual cleaner, I was issued polo shirts and green tabards, I have recently been issued some red tabards as well.
I am a male cleaner and no problem with wearing a tabard, they are very practical.

Shorts if it's hot. I actually used to wear shorts the entire year (I live in WI) because of how wet I'd get rinsing showers. I no longer have an attached garage or a boyfriend to start my car so the year-long shorts are out. Otherwise, jeans and a Tee-shirt. I don't dress to impress. I dress to be comfortable so I can do my best job. (I do, however, find the scrubs idea a good idea.)

Professional Clothes more advisable than wearing jeans or any other clothes.
