Mattress Cleaning Business: How To Manual

A Mattress Cleaning Business might be just for you if you have tried everything to contain your allergies, but feel like it is not enough. Instead of just purchasing the equipment to rid your fabric furniture and mattresses of allergens, you can also help others in your community to feel the relief and make a good income at the same time.

Mattress cleaning companies have been available for approximately 12 years in Europe, and are just now starting up in the United States. No matter where you live, this business has virtually no competition, and is useful to all people. If you think it is very expensive to start, you're wrong.

You can find mattress cleaning service franchises or companies wanting to set up dealers. You will purchase a franchise or license, and start your business. Either way the companies include the equipment, training, support and marketing tools to help get your mattress cleaning service up and running.

Each company offers its own system at its own cost, but they normally start about $3,000 per system and you will probably want to purchase more then one system. The up side of this mattress cleaning business is that you will see a profit fairly quickly. However, you should do some things before purchasing your franchise or license.

The first thing is to check with your local and state governments to find out the regulations and requirements you will need. You should also check with your insurance agent to inquire about insurance requirements for your mattress cleaning business. Make sure you have these before you open for business.

You may also want to visit the Small business web site or go to the local office and get a copy of helpful forms and a sample business plan to use to help you start your business. These forms will help you answer questions, and budget your investment. It will also help you to discover any items you may have not thought of or forgotten about prior to opening.

If you need help financing your mattress cleaning services, you will need this document as well as a proposal. You will take these to private investors, banks, and the Small Business Administration. If you are turned down at first, reevaluate your proposal and business plan, make any changes and try again. Never get discouraged.

Once you have financing and have purchased your mattress cleaning business franchise or license, use the tools the company has given you. Advertise, focusing on the ability to clean allergens out of fabric furniture and mattresses. Everyone has furniture and beds and everyone wants those things clean. This works to your advantage to get clients. Don't forget to send a sales letter to local hospitals and hotels announcing the opening of your incredible mattress cleaning business.

Run an ad in your local paper. You can even run ads in surrounding areas, depending on how far you are willing to travel. If your area has coupon mailers, consider putting a coupon for the mattress cleaning business in it. It will get your business name out there. It will be one of the best ways to advertise.

Once you have a few clients, they will start telling friends and family and your client base will grow. Your clients are your best advertisements. You may also want to put fliers in mattress and furniture stores. Always ask first, but they may refer people to your mattress cleaning business.

Subscribe to newsletters and periodicals to keep up on the industry trends. This way you will stay ahead of any competition. Also, check out books and web sites. Always know what is going on in your industry.

If you already have a cleaning service, you may want to consider adding this to the services you already provide. Or you may start with this service and gradually grow into other cleaning services. Your options are endless and the industry is wide open. Your biggest chance of failure is if you don't try.
