This book does what it says on the tin! As someone who has bought a lot of books on starting a cleaning business I can honestly say that this is the most detailed yet straightforward I've come across. Everything is clearly laid out in a step by step fashion, including all the required forms and contracts which is a huge bonus. The writer clearly knows what he is talking about and has given me the confidence to contemplate starting my own cleaning business in the New Year. I would definitely recommend it. Dean

I have read several books on starting a Cleaning Business and if you want to go down the Agency Route this is this best one and we are told the methods used are the same as Franchises who use a similiar method.

To me the system requires a plentiful supply of Applicants for Cleaning Jobs as you reject 9 out of !0 during the selection process , and I would have liked some more ideas on this, although there is an offer of a Web Site , Forms etc if you require at extra cost. I think the book is the text part of a package that was being marketed elsewhere for several hundred pound
Not much about Cleaning Methods so you would need to buy other Books

Over all there is plenty of content , but the only way to sucess is to use what you find useful , but most of all your own Drive , Motivation and determination. I do not operate a cleaning Agency or domestic or contract cleaning company , and have no connection with the author. For the past 10 years I have been a Carpet Cleaner Moderator at [...] where you can find loads of tips on success in the cleaning industry

This is one of the best books on the topic and also ideal for the UK markets. From the business side of things, probably nothing more is required.
