Is Cleaning Your Calling?
Can’t stand a mess? Does the show Hoarders drive you absolutely insane? Is your house always sparkling? Do you possess a collection of chemicals that would put a Walmart warehouse to shame? If this is you, you ought to start your own cleaning business.
A cleaning service is one of the cheapest businesses to start. With almost no overhead costs, you can pass on the low costs to your customers, too!
But before you start your business, you’ll probably have to advertise in newspapers, drop off business cards at offices, and place flyers on cars. We've arrived at our first hurdle: what should you call your business?
Naming Your Business
Before you can do all of that, you’ll have to think about what you’re going to call yourself, right? Right. Here are a few tips that should be used when thinking of cleaning company names:
- Use your name: You are the boss. You started this company. Flaunt it!
- Pick a "clean" name: You should have a name that has cleaning written all over it.
- Be specific: If you only do residential, only do commercial, or only do new construction cleaning, this should be specified somehow in your business name.
- Sound positive: People don’t want grumpy strangers in their homes, so having a friendly, happy-sounding name might help!
So, what should you look for in cleaning company names? The question you should be asking is, what do customers look for in a cleaning company? Customers want a cleaning company that is good at what they do and is happy to do it, and they want a company that they can trust to be around their valuables when the customer isn’t there.
Here is a list of 50 example names:

Picking a Business Name
There you have it, a good list of cleaning company names to help you in your brainstorming. Sometimes you just can’t think clearly on your own, so in this case, try the following tips to help you with names:
- Involve family and friends: Have a get-together with a few of your closest people in an effort to get their opinions and suggestions for names. Not only will they be happy that you want their help, but you can also have a drink or two in the process to relax!
- Try a coin toss: Sometimes it comes down to just a couple of names and you simply cannot make a decision. In this case, you’d be happy with either name, right? Well, flip a coin!
- Take a vote: If you have a few names in mind, take a vote from everyone you know—and even strangers in public (those soon-to-be customers!)—and see what type of name they would go with!
- Design a logo first: Sometimes people need visual cues in order to spark thoughts and ideas. If this is you, it wouldn’t hurt to give it a try!
Don’t rush the naming process if you are having a mental block. Sometimes it helps to just get a good night's rest and start with a clean slate in the morning! (A clean slate that’s probably cleaner than most, I assume!)

I recently moved out of home and have had a total shock at how hard howesuork can be!! My mum always cleaned up after me and nagged that I was messy, I just thought she was moaning for the sake of it but I now realize how easily my mess spreads now that I'm tidying up after myself! You just don't notice when somebody else is doing it for you. Its like the program wifeswap, the men are always so much more grateful when they get their wives back for all the work they do to keep a tidy home
