To shamrock. This is what you need. First you need a business licencse, insurance, HOME OCCUPATION PERMIT, don't forget that, bonding. I live in virginia so i'll give you the price done here. You are going to have to find the price in your area. business license:$23, insurance minimal:$40, home occupation permit:$25, bonding: that I don't know.
THe reason i upper case is that some people don't know about it. Like me. IF your going to operate your business in yuor home to begin with, you may need a home occupation permit. If you do and don't get one, you could get caught and into trouble. Go to city hall and find out if you need one or not. Lucky me, city hall denied me to get a permit. So i couldn't run my business.
Second you need supplies. I'll give you a list of things that you will most likely need. THan you put a price because prices wont be same everywhere. So jot a price by the list of things i write and then sum it up for your total.
One upright vaccum cleaner with bags and a 50 ft cord, one 26 quart mop bucket casters(wheels), one mop wringer for the mop bucket, one mop with mop handle with a gripper style, one commercial trash can with wheels(either a 32 gallon or 44 gallon container, get a tray and trash can apron, one broom, one dust mop, get a cone style sanitary toliet bowl brush, a couple of spray bottle, get small trash can liner (24 by 33), large trash bags(40 by 48), many cloths, all purpose cleaner, windex, pinesol, toliet bowel cleaner, gloves.
THat should be it. JUst put a price by each item then sum it up. Don't go out get a expense vaccum. Don't spend money you don't have. And have your manager of the place your cleaning come out with a stupid excuse for not being a able to pay on time. Get one that can do the job. Have money flowing in first. Then go buy your expensive toys.
