My sister and I are starting a residential and commercial cleaning service. We both have sassy personalities and a big sense of humor. So we came up with the name "Two Chicks and a Broomstick". I'm asking for honest feedback, let me know what you think of the name. Also, if you have any suggestions feel free to share.

I wouldn't. People pay serious money to have their homes and offices cleaned, and something a little more businesslike might sound better. A cleaning service in my local area is called "Ragtime." Something like that is cute, short, fits on a business card or invoice, and still sounds reasonably professional. They are not in your state, so you might be able to try that name.

I don't think a cleaning business needs a catchy name. Why don't you just call it "Aaliyah's Household Cleaning". Tells what it is, who you are, and will also be at the beginning of any alphabetical listing!!

Greetings from Kentucky.

I am really interested in starting a home cleaning business. I am 23 years old, a mom of 1 (4yrs) and not in a situation to work a typical 9-5 Monday-Friday job. Long story short, I am a stay at home mom. My fiance and my son's Dad is currently a full-time college student, majoring in pre-med biology, and has his hands full to say the least, with classes all throughout the day, studying, homework, etc. The norm. With him being so busy I'm the parent, that is staying home with our son.

Ad

The benefits of owning/running my own home cleaning business are definitely appealing and are the main reason why I am so set on having success with this. It will allow me to have the option to have a more flexible work schedule so that I will be able to be a stay at home mom while my fiance is working on his degree. I am not sure at this point if I will keep this new home cleaning business for years upon years, for a lack of better words. But I do fully expect to keep the business going full speed until my fiance graduates and obtains his medical degree, which will be somewhere around 4 years.

This venture will be the first of its kind for myself. =) I definitely am in need and would greatly appreciate any tips, ideas on what to name this new business, words of wisdom, anything helpful! :) Thanks so much.

My partner and I have had a cleaning business for about 6 years now. I would definitely stress getting insurance. It's not cheap but may get you clients that you can't get without it, such as apartments and office accounts. Some residential clients feel safer if you have it, too.

Do not buy expensive vacs and such. They all last about 6 months, regardless if they cost $50 or $300. Get 2 so you have one for a backup. Get your cleaning rags at Sam's Club. We use the red shop rags. Have plenty.

When possible, unless the client asks for certain brands, use generic cleaners. Tell the client you do it to help keep their costs down. If they prefer a specific brand, suggest they provide it.

Advertise! Yellowbook is good. A nice ad in your local paper is good. Keep your rates competitive with other cleaners in your area. Don't expect to make a lot of money at first. It's a slow service to get started. Be flexible in your scheduling. Remember, you are there for the client, not the other way around. Be professional. Good luck!

I live in Idaho I have been working as a custodian for a school district for 8 years now. I have learned a lot about cleaning schools.

Start with the word clean or cleaning so that your business will always be one of the first listed. When people are looking for that service by keyword, category, or name, your listing will always be right there. That will help you to grow your business. When someone is looking in a directory, yellow pages, or web search, chances are they will look for the word clean or cleaning and there you will be front and center. When people see a name, they tend to visualize it. Make that easy for them. Haven't you seen store names listed and wondered what the heck they are? Don't make them guess what you do. Use your name to show your experience, expertise, or preferred services.
'Cleaning by David', 'Cleaned by Experience', 'Cleanest of All', 'Cleaning Closer', 'Cleaning Class Act', 'Cleaning Associates', 'Cleaning Trouble Shooter'
Good luck!

This is just a little tip. When you settle on a name for your cleaning business, make it clear what the business is all about. Don't give it some name that could be used on a cafe, beauty shop, or dry cleaning establishment, be very specific. It could also be a name that speaks to your mission to do a great job. Best of luck to you.

I am starting my own house cleaning/child care business. For now my goal is to alleviate stress in the home. I would like to be able to branch out and clean offices at a later date. Every name I have come up with is in use. There are a few young single moms in need. I need something clean and crisp similar to all the short ones I wanted are taken, such as: Serenity Services, Tranquil Services, Twinkle Services, Bliss Cleaning, and Serene Cleaning. There's one I have found that I could use, but it has no reference to stress relief (The Clean Team).

With business names, you want to keep two things in mind: 1. Have a name that starts with a letter early in the alphabet for a prime position in business directories (Yellow Pages and such). 2. Especially with an innovative service / product, you want it to be clear what it is that you do. If it is too generic or poetic, people will just scratch their heads and move on to a different company. My idea for your company name is "A Mother's Helper" - it starts with an "A" and clearly signals who your target audience is, that you are willing to help moms with their chores, and those usually include cleaning and childcare. The subtitle on business cards and such can then be more specific ("Childcare and housecleaning services"). Good luck with your business!
