5 Cleaning Services Startups to Watch in 2017

Cleaning services is a business hotspot in big cities, and so there’s a huge market for small scale cleaning businesses to enter into the market slowly and grab their share.

You may have seen hundreds of business portals talking about how to start a cleaning business, and honestly, there’s no rocket science involved in starting your own cleaning business. However, the actual challenge is tough competition, i.e. the industry is so full of cleaning services that it might be difficult for you to get good clientele without an effective strategy.

A good marketing plan is a winning factor, but just think something out of the box and if you happen to offer something awesome, you can acquire a big market faster and it will come with huge profits for sure.

So, here are five awesome cleaning services related startups, that did things little different:

1- Get Maid: an on-demand, premium maid service starting from $45/hour. What makes it different that if you’re looking for cleaners urgently, they will be at your place within two hours of placing order via their app or website! They serve in New York City from 9:30 A.M. to 6:00 P.M. on demand, but also offer services from 8:00 A.M. to 7:00 P.M through appointment; both 7 days a week.

2- Dhobilite: serving the Indian market, their aim is to bring dhobi ghaat to your home. It claims to be be India’s first app-based, on-demand laundry service provider focusing urban India. It’s basically a modern version of a dhobi (laundry man) who collects clothes from “your home or office, gets them washed at a local laundry service, and drops them off. An amazing service for working class!

3- MyClean: little different than that of Get Maid, MyClean has prices based on services type, i.e. rather than amount of time spent. You pick a service and the maid will stay as long as it takes to complete it. Prices are based on number of bedrooms and bathrooms, and various services requested. A simple cleaning of a 1 bedroom, 1 bath apartment is $84 and they work 7 days a week in New York City.

4- Sweep South: a simple yet highly effective on-demand home-help provider in South Africa. The platform allows users to book home cleaning services online from their phone, laptop or tablet, connecting homeowners with highly professional and experienced cleaners in minutes. It’s also a per hour service.

5- TaskRabbit: this one is really different, yet powerful business idea. You post a task at TaskRabbit, i.e. home cleaning, assembly of a desk etc. and either name your price or take bids. You can choose your own or else TaskRabbit can pick the service provider for you. Here you will find average for a home cleaning around $60. They offer services in various cities.

I am sure these 5 innovative cleaning startups are food for thought for all those wannabe entrepreneurs who want to make most out of this industry!
