Stacey landed her first commercial cleaning business client and loves the change of pace so far. There are a few things that help when soliciting commercial clients.

Be Professional – While bidding out a commercial account make sure everything you do is neat and professional. Businesses won’t hire sloppy businesses. If you’re going on a big make sure to dress nicely, leave a business card, and submit a written estimate.

Bidding – Many business cleaning clients will require a written bid. This was the case for Stacey an she ended up using a free invoice site to make a clean and professional estimate to email over.

Insurance – Many commercial cleaning clients will require you to be completely insured. I recommend getting general liability insurance right away after starting your business. This will keep you from losing jobs that require an insurance certificate.

Overall commercial clients are great because they tend to want service more often than residential clients, resulting in a much higher per customer income potential.
