A Window Washer Service has a low startup cost and can turn into a good small home business. Before you get too involved in starting any business, talk to those in the trade if you can, and get some books and investigate before investing too much money.
If you do not know how to clean windows professionally, stop by a janitorial supply house and look at their books and tools. Ask questions. Learn the ins and outs or your business may be doomed before it has a chance.
The next step in starting any business is to check with local authorities about licenses and permits needed. Especially if it is permitted to run a business out of your home.
Stop by the tax collectors office and register your name and get your tax I.D. number so you can collect sales tax. Liability insurance and a LLC ( Limited Liability Corporation) are also very important in order to protect you against major loss in case of an accident.
Check with the Small Business Association at www.SBA.gov for information on starting a small business and loans if needed. They have a very informative site that will help you in many ways so be sure to scan through it.
Get a wholesale account with a local janitorial supplier that sells window washing supples such as cleaning chemicals, sqeezees, soap, scrubbers, ladders, buckets, professional grade rags, and other assorted items. If yours is a one man operation, start small and order just enough to keep you going for three months.
Advertise in your local business yellow pages, online yellow pages, local newspapers, pass out flyers and business cards, put an ad on Facebook targeting your local area, and set up a business website.
Use word of mouth advertising and don't forget to get referrals. Join the Better Business Bureau (BBB.org) and any other local business organizations. This will allow you to meet business owners who may be in need of your services.
Stop by any and all janitorial businesses in your area to see if they need someone to clean windows. If they say yes, ask how you can put your name on their vendors list. If they say no, ask if they would like to expand their service by subcontracting your service.
It is easier to get work as a subcontractor to a business who already has a cleaning contract that to get one on your own, especially when you are just starting your window washer service. This will help you to learn the ropes and build up your skills.
