Housekeeping is a necessity; something every homeowner must deal with directly or delegate. If left untended to, homes can become messy, dirty and eventually uninhabitable. For those who can’t stand working in a cubicle, working as a maid or housekeeper can be an enjoyable and lucrative way to make a living. The benefits of being a housekeeper include being able to set your own hours, work with repeat clients, and the opportunity to get paid extra through tips or bonuses for exceptional service. As long as the job standard is high, the work tends to continue. The business of housekeeping is built through marketing, reputation and referrals. Whether one decides to become a solo cleaning service provider, or a centralized housekeeping service provider employing multiple cleaning crews, housekeeping is an industry that will always be in demand.

Operating a successful housekeeping business involves detail orientation, time management, and the ability to successfully market. Operations require cleaning supplies and specialty equipment such as telescoping dusters or industrial grade floor-waxers. Deciding on a niche is important; some housekeeping services specialize in commercial facilities like hotels while others specialize in homes. If staffing is necessary, a cleaning business owner must carefully vet employees for fastidiousness, trustworthiness, and check referrals. Housekeeping services typically run using on premise software or software as a service (SaaS) like FieldPulse. These platforms manage employees and independent contractors, handle scheduling, communicate with clients and run accounting, billing, invoicing and housekeeping payment.
