Equipment

I bring all cleaners and equipment...

It's faster to work with my own supplies!

Definitely your own, you know what works for you and you know what product to use in each individual situation. Customers might have a lot of crap that is no good and each time you use their products you have to spend additional time finding them and reading about what they are for.

If you are serious about the business you had better invest in your own equipment. I have over 26K in mine.

I would have and use your own equipment. If a customer prefers that you use theirs, then I would. If you are getting hired for a cleaning job you should have your own on hand.

It really depends on the clean. If it is regular cleaning - customer's. If it is a one off clean, a deep clean, EOT - we use our own cleaning equipment.

all my own, except, in most cases, the vacuum. If they have a good one, I will use it, if not I will bring mine.

I would highly suggest to get your own, even in the begingng. You don't want to ask your client where their supplies are. And what if they aren't there when you are cleaning?
Not having all the supplies by yourself just screams unprofessional to protential clients. So invest a few bucks and buy all of your own supplies.
