Starting A Commercial Cleaning Service For The Bedridden


If you are opening a commercial cleaning company, like Spectrum Building Svcs., you may want to select one particular market to work with in order to best invest in your products and services. One segment of the population that will always need a little extra help cleaning are those who are bedridden or having trouble getting along. If you are starting a cleaning company for those who are immobile, here are some tips for making sure your company and staff are prepared. 

Perform proper background checks and inform on safety

When you are trusting employees with access inside of a home, especially with a person who has extra needs, you must know that your employees are suitable for the job. Perform a criminal background check on anyone that you are hiring. The person must also be able to be licenced and bonded for business insurance purposes. Once you get a good team of trustworthy individuals, make sure they are instructed on some basics of safety, including how to deal with client accidents and how to perform CPR. 

Set up a way to get inside

If you and your cleaners come to the home of a person who is bedridden, it may not be easy for them to open the door to allow you inside. The client may provide you with a key or an access code in order to get inside of the home. It is a good idea to keep any keys or code entries in the main office and require employees to pick them up and drop them off. This makes sure that the keys are only where they should be, for better client and worker safety. 

Offer outdoor services

If a person with a single family home is bedridden, it is likely that they will need their lawn mowed or leaves raked on a regular basis. Offer these extra services as add-ons in order to attract more clientele. Ask the client how often their outdoor work will need to be performed, then make it coincide with their cleaning services. 

Run a delivery service as well

Depending on how much family or staff your clients have, they may have trouble getting to certain items that they enjoy, such as food, toiletries, or clothing. Offer a delivery service to clients to provide them with extras. Having a weekly delivery of toiletries come with their weekly cleaning service will make life easier for immobile clients and it can increase your profit margin, as well.

An Easter Celebration

Growing up, I was extremely close to my family. In fact, I lived with my parents and my sister until I married my husband eleven years ago. Unfortunately, I moved seventy-five long miles away from my family after my wedding. But I still visit my childhood home at least once each month. Our growing family also still celebrates all of the major holidays including Easter. Because my husband and I plan to start a family soon, we hope to begin hosting more family gatherings at our home. When this takes happens, I know I will need help cleaning my house. On this blog, I hope you will discover how hiring cleaning services can help you plan a stress-free Easter celebration.
