A lot of businesses and industries have grown over time and unexpectedly, leaving a lot of people stressed and kicking their heads against the walls just because they aren’t part of them. Nowadays, there are not many industries that are left unexploited by the big brand names and franchises. However, if there is one promising sub-industry within the cleaning industry — it has to be window cleaning. Wondering why? The Massive Potential Of Window Cleaning They say windows make the soul of a house. And that is absolutely true. Every house has windows. Every office has them. In a nutshell, every property has windows — and they need to be clean at all times. In an era where cleaning-related businesses are mainly focused on floor cleaning, carpet cleaning and similar services, window cleaning is definitely a subcategory that will steal the show. According to some stats, more than 50% of the franchise brands offer office cleaning, home cleaning and carpet cleaning as their main services. But what about window cleaning? The truth is, everything needs to be cleaned — but windows take a lot of time and yet are the first noticeable thing in a property that is not well cleaned. People are living in their homes longer and hence, they have become much aware of the need for regular window cleaning, pressure washing and other similar services that will result in spotless windows reminding them of a clean and well-maintained property. The average number of windows in a house varies from 20 to 25. Still, we need to count in the gutters, decks and sidewalks as the other things that often get dirty and needs maintenance. That being said, it is more than clear that window cleaning is a big opportunity in the cleaning industry. People Are Spending More Than Ever On Home Maintenance Another statistic that goes into favor of window cleaning is the fact that people are spending more and more to maintain their homes. From busy homeowners to big businesses, there is an ongoing need for cleaning — and that need has increased a lot over time. These long-term housing trends actually benefit the window cleaning, window tinting and pressure washing subcategories. However, what every homeowner will agree to is that all of these services come with the main benefit of more time for everyone. Unlike commercial cleaning, carpet cleaning or any other category that requires evening and weekend work, window cleaning is part of residential cleaning — and is typically performed from Monday to Friday (9 to 5). Another fact that benefits window cleaning is the fact that there are more employed parents than anytime before, meaning that not everyone has time to clean (but has the money to use professional window cleaning services). That being said, it is evident that window cleaning is all about not having the time for cleaning and using an affordable service that gives us precious time to enjoy with our families. So, How To Start A Window Cleaning Business? Getting started in the window cleaning industry is not too difficult, but definitely requires some attention. If you want to own a window cleaning business — you should be prepared for some hard work and an initially smaller investment (which is good).
