Starting a Cleaning Business?

Women cleaning a countertop and text "Starting a cleaning business?"

There are many people around the country who make their living by cleaning houses and apartments. They may work for themselves, or they may be employed by a cleaning service, but as long as homeowners don’t have the time to keep their houses tidy, there will be a need for others to dust and vacuum. At EZ Storage® in St. Louis, we’ve helped many business owners find the ideal self-storage for their supplies, and if you’re starting your own cleaning business, then we know we can help you too!

Mops, Buckets, and Brooms

dreamstime_xxl_51614071As you’re starting out, you’ll likely need to buy some supplies so that you have what you need when it’s time to clean a house. You’ll have to purchase the right cleaners and sprays, as well as mops, buckets, brooms, and more. The cleaner bottles are easy enough to store in your home, but if you have limited space, you may need somewhere else to store your larger items. You’ll probably keep your mops and brooms in a van or a car while you’re working, but if you’re only cleaning on the weekends, or you’re taking a few days off in the summer, a small storage unit can be a good choice.

Washing Windows

If you’re branching out into a full-fledged interior and exterior cleaning service, then you’re likely going to need more than just a few cleaners and some rags. If you’re planning to offer window washing and deck cleaning as part of your services, then you’ll need to invest in a quality ladder or two (not to mention a suitable pressure washer). These items take up space, and you may not have room for them in your garage. If not, our staff can help you find the right storage unit for the ladders and washers that you need for those full-service cleaning jobs.

Seasonal Storage Choices

dreamstime_xxl_8566348Perhaps your plan is to clean during the summer months, while you’re out of school and have a bit more free time. Maybe you’re planning to retire this year, but you still feel like you have the time and energy to pursue a post-retirement job. Whatever the case may be, EZ Storage® can provide seasonal storage for your cleaning supplies when you don’t need them. By only paying for the months you need, you’ll be able to maximize your profits and make the most of your budget.

If you’re starting a cleaning business in the near future, then come to one of our St. Louis locations today to find the perfect self-storage options. We’ll gladly show you the units that we have available, and we can answer any questions you have about our leases, our facility, and our security.
