Hands up if you’ve ever complained that your partner, housemate or work colleague is not doing their fair share of cleaning up? Did that hand have a mop, duster or hoover attachment in it?
If you have a house full of kids or regular guests, it can feel like your home is a permanent “bomb site” no matter how hard you try. Having a career and keeping your house clean can leave little time to sit back and relax in your pristine rooms too!
These are just some of the reasons that one in four households in Britain employ cleaners. Meaning anyone considering taking up a domestic cleaning franchise could “hoover up” some excellent profits!

Time For You – A business that makes “time for you”!
As one author put it so well: “The cruel irony of housework: people only notice when you don’t do it.”
One of the advantages of running a cleaning franchise with Time For You is that your clients will certainly appreciate the work you and your cleaning team do. Another great plus point is knowing that your business activities will enable you to afford for someone else to do YOUR housework!
Do More Women Then Men Clean Up?
Offering domestic cleaning services to women in your community will make you particularly popular. We can say that with confidence, as a 2018 study showed that there is still a big gender gap when it comes to housework. In fact, British women still do 60% more housework than men! https://www.theguardian.com/inequality/2018/feb/17/dirty-secret-why-housework-gender-gap
This is serious stuff, as arguments over who carries out unpleasant cleaning tasks and other chores is one of the most common reasons for divorce. (source: https://www.businessinsider.com/marriage-better-outsource-housework-2018-4?r=US&IR=T)
Imagine running a domestic cleaning franchise business and knowing that you’re saving your clients not only precious time, but also their sanity and marriage. Wow!
There’s Always Local Demand For Reliable Cleaners
The reasons why domestic cleaning services are so important are numerous. However, perhaps one of the biggest motivators for people to engage the services of a cleaning franchise team is often a “dirty little secret”.
Why the heck should anyone do their own bathroom deep cleans, weekly dusts and kitchen floor scrubs, when they can get someone with more enthusiasm on the job!
All you need to do is to remind your potential clients that British people do £1 trillion worth of unpaid housework each year (valued higher than the output from retail and manufacturing) according to the Office for National Statistics (ONS).
If they would prefer to spend their time doing something else, that’s where you step in, to “mop up” on cleaning fees. (https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/uk-unpaid-housework-british-people-ons-cooking-laundry-driving-a8566031.html)
