Hi Deb

Like you I am new to the business, only 5 months, we also do mainly domestic work.
but have now branched out into carpet cleaning as well. The only advice I want to give is keep reading this Forum, everyone here is so friendly and the advice is invaluable
Oh! and avoid price shoppers or you will soon be losing money!
Treat your customers with respect and do a good job and the word will soon go around.
Wishing you success

We are putting our fingers into many pies in the hope of getting a plum somewhere!!

We can then decide on Commercial or Domestic.

good luck and remember don't let them tell you what charge, you tell them what to pay.

good luck with your new business

Remember one thing as you embark on your new venture, a caged bird has only itself to blame, a bear with honey has itself to feed, a man with no troubles is a friend indeed.
