It may not be immediately obvious to the budding entrepreneur, but founding a specialist cleaning company has the potential to pay handsome dividends.
Tasked with providing a variety of cleaning services to a wide range of businesses and authorities, specialist cleaners will ensure a company’s premises is left free from unsightly grime or vandalism.
Whether it’s removing ugly graffiti, mopping up after a fire or cleaning a refuse chute, this vocation requires flexibility, tenacity and the ability to work to tight deadlines.
While it may not be as glamorous as founding a buzzing social media site or dabbling in the stock market, specialist cleaning is a highly sought after service that businesspersons simply can’t afford to ignore.
Considering the market saturation of various business ideas and the growing number of “me too” firms, it’s little wonder that entrepreneurs are diversifying to focus on paths less trodden.
But what areas do the specialist cleaning experts tend to focus on? Read on to find out …
Chewing Gum Removal
Not only does chewing gum ingrained on a pavement or entranceway look hideous, the price of removing it is exorbitant. Astonishingly, eradicating chewing gum from the streets of London is estimated at £10 million per year – which means big business for cleaning companies. Typically, the experts tend to use environmentally friendly ways of removing gum from a pavement or flooring.
Although the works of Banksy – the political activist and UK-based graffiti artist – sell for inordinate amounts all around the world, graffiti is typically an eyesore in cities and towns. Aside from its effect on property values and tourism, it can be extremely difficult to remove. Expert cleaning companies, however, will use specialist techniques and chemicals to restore the surface back to its original state.
Industrial Damage and Spills
When industrial damage or spills occur, having a team of experts in your corner is vital. Highly trained specialists with the skills to deal quickly and efficiently with a wide variety of situations will restore business premises back to their original state, while eliminating the risk of any health and safety issues.
Fire Damage Cleaning
There’s no smoke without fire – and that smoke has the potential to cause permanent damage to your premises. Aside from rendering a building uninhabitable for a long period of time (which obviously costs business money), soot odours, health problems and corrosion should all be dealt with by a specialist cleaning company.
Silo Cleaning Services
Firms who use industrial or agricultural silos to store items including flour, sugar, maize or feed for animals should be aware of the need for expert periodic cleaning of these facilities. Why? Because residue builds up and cause insects to breed and this can lead to contamination and the spoilage of products.
