About Cleaning franchises

So why buy a cleaning franchise? The cleaning industry contributes to £24 billion of the UK economy.  This includes domestic and commercial cleaning companies.  And franchising is a large contributor with cleaning franchises remaining a popular choice for those looking for a sustainable industry to buy into.

Nearly every business in the UK needs a cleaner and will look for a reputable local company who are reliable and trustworthy.  Commercial cleaning franchises such as Minster franchise offers this.  Companies like to use a cleaning franchise company as they are part of a larger network and as the business is run and owned by the franchisee, standards will be high.  The reputation of the franchise owner is at stake and in a local area, where word of mouth and recommendations are important, the franchisee will make sure that their staff are reliable and the job they do, and customer service they offer, is first class.

After build cleaning is also covered in this category by the Kleaning Company franchise.  They provide the construction industry with an after build, deep clean service.   

Domestic cleaning franchises are another popular sector in the UK cleaning industry.  With more of us having less time to spend on household chores due to longer working hours or other commitments, people now see hiring a cleaning company as a necessity rather than a luxury. Many families also help elderly relatives by employing a cleaner to do their weekly cleaning chores especially if time constraints or distance prevents them from helping.  Domestic cleaning companies such as Molly Maid, Merry Maids, Cleanhome, Servicemaster and Bright and Beautiful are all a popular choice when it comes to selecting a cleaning company.   

Many of these franchises are management franchise opportunities where you do not undertake the cleaning but lead a team of cleaners. However, there are also many single operator cleaning franchises available, where you would offer a mobile cleaning service and do the physical work yourself.  

For example, in our cleaning franchise industry, we have a number of franchises that undertake more specialist cleaning chores that are van franchises.  This includes the likes of Oven Wizard and Oven Clean who offer a specialist oven cleaning service.  These oven cleaning franchises will tend to be van franchises with the franchisee undertaking the oven cleaning work themselves.  They can however build their business into a multi-unit van franchise operation if they are successfully and wish to develop.

We also have a gutter cleaning franchise, GutterPRO and Wilkins Chimney Sweep who offers a chimney sweeping service.

Chemex franchise specializes in supplying cleaning, hygiene and infection control products to businesses, again another van franchise that can be developed into a multi-van operation.

Metro Rod and Drain Doctor both provide a domestic and commercial drainage service.

Safeclean franchise owners provide a flooring and upholstery cleaning service to household customers and business owners.

Another popular section is car wash franchises or valeting companies.  Autovaletdirect provides UK car owners with a graphic and sign removel service alongside their successful valeting system.

Our cleaning franchise industry category has something for everyone!
