Thanks so much for the positive feedback Ken! It would be so easy to try to find all the things that could go wrong. I function best on the positive.Cat, I think you actually have a chance of making this thing a successful venture. Kudos on doing things right. In three years you will be leagues above those that buy a vaccuum cleaner, a pair of nitrile gloves and place a Craig's List ad and call it a business. I like your style.
Really?! I had actually been looking into shoe covers to wear in the shower to hedge against slipping. Guess not!you are doing a wonderful job of prepping for opening day Cat. One little word of advice - have your employees practice walking in the shoe covers, they really only work on carpet. Many cleaning companies have actually banned the use of shoe covers because of liability issues and workman's comp claims due to the fact that persons wearing them on hard floor surfaces have little to no traction and fall much more, often leading to insurance claims that you really don't want to have made against you or your company.
I just took a look at your website and all I can say is....WOW! I love what you are doing.I have a residential and Commercial Cleaning company in the resort areas of Ocean City, MD up to Lewes, DE. We started iour business just a few months ago in October of 2007. We are an LLC, licensed bonded and insured. We went all out on advertising and our company is going much better then I had hoped!! We now have 6 employees (3 per crew) and have residential, commercial, rentals post construction. WE have 2 company vehicles. We have rented a billboard on a majoy strip and advertise in every newspaper! I must say that putting money into advertising has helpe us get to where we are! Just this week we have gotten several calls for some major cleaning projects! www.1stmateservices.com.
