With heightened concerns for health and sanitation after the COVID-19 pandemic, commercial cleaning businesses are seeing increased opportunities for expansion and profitability. But with these opportunities also come significant challenges. Managing them well can be the difference between success and bankruptcy.
Where Do Texas Commercial Cleaning Companies Struggle?
As the commercial cleaning industry grows, more companies are opening and seizing every opportunity for part of the growing clientele potential. This means cleaning businesses must capitalize on every factor that can make them stand apart from the competition.
Hiring the Right People
Commercial cleaning requires the right type of people, who possess the temperament, skills and reliability to perform what is often unsavory tasks. Your employees must also be able to relate to your clients with respect and professionalism. They must represent your company well and reflect the training and time you have invested in them to do their jobs well with little direct supervision. Acquiring and keeping good people requires compensating them adequately.
Nothing guarantees your Texas cleaning company repeat business like high-quality services. No details can be left undone and “clean enough” cannot be part of your company ethos. Well-compensated and motivated employees go the extra mile to ensure every task is completed above and beyond the norm. Your cleaning business will quickly become known for quality services – or for substandard services.
Sometimes differentiating your cleaning company from competitors means offering specialty services others do not offer. Advanced sanitization services or other specific cleaning options can gain you more business – but they may also require you to invest in more training and equipment, at a higher expense.
Technology and Automation
Another way to rise above other area cleaning companies is to adopt the latest technology and automation to enhance your services and quality. Again, this will require a larger investment in time and treasure, but it can pay rich dividends over time as you become known as the signature commercial cleaning company in your region of Texas.
Non-Recourse Factoring Can Keep the Cash Flowing to Meet Business Challenges
Expanding and improving your business requires more investment:
- Attracting and keeping the right people
- Training your employees well
- Using the best products and tools
- Adopting new technology to raise your service quality
- Offering expanded specialty services to open new markets and expand your clientele
Most commercial cleaning companies operate on an invoice basis, and waiting for your clients to pay can often put a crimp in your operations. How do you pay employees, purchase supplies, invest in new equipment and keep working unimpeded when cash runs low?
