What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
No not really, mainly a first clean is always more, after the initial clean, maintaining is always less. and I have great rates from a one time clean to a continuous clean.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
In this business its not about continuing education,more about how good you are and how many lengths you will go for a satisfied customer. also it is more about contacts and making a good name for yourself. I do everything from residential to construction clean-up. I have many years experience and have great references. I work hard and satisfying my costumers in important to me. I think its about people having faith and trust in who they hire to do a job. The way I look at it is if you do a good job you will be more likely to be used again and word of mouth is valuable, and making a good name for myself is important after all we only get one chance to be respected in this line of work, so how you preform and how your name is put out there says a lot.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I started cleaning with my son's grandmother when I was 17 part time on weekends and just continued from there. I first began threw company's and worked for someone as extra income, well like most people I was making someone else rich..if you know what I mean, well then I decided why not start my own business as I had been doing it so long and knew all the tricks and trades of the line of work. So one day I just decided to go for it and here I am today. Never been more satisfied with my decision. I did take a short break and perused a career in the medical field. And then decided to start up again ..and if all works out to my standards I will get big enough to have this as my primary job. I have a small number of employees as of today but plan to grow!! I strive to achieve my goals in my life as I do believe I will succeeded in this!!!
