Own Business or Franchise

Before you start operating, you also need to decide whether you want to register your business with your own company name or you want to be under the umbrella of an established company through a franchise.

You will also be learning a lot because you will be working under your own terms. The downside however is that you need to work double time on promotions because your name isn’t that popular yet. As to a franchise, the good thing is that you don’t have to work that much on luring clients anymore. You will just have to spend more and work according to operational standards of the company.

You will need items for cleaning wood, concrete, glass, plastic and other materials for which parts of a house could be made of.
Being Mobile

This is for you to be able to keep up with the schedules especially if your clients live far from one another. It is best to paint your car with your logo so that it will be identifiable not to mention that it could also serve as a form of promotion for your business.
