Cleaning and home maintenance services are part of a booming industry. As the real estate market continues to rebound, homeowners are spending more money keeping up their homes. Busy Americans are contracting out these services to local businesses more and more to save time.
In addition, it's not just homeowners who rely on these services. Commercial cleaning is in big demand for businesses across the country. The cleaning industry alone is estimated around $50 billion and continues to grow.

From maid and carpet cleaning services to home inspection and lawn care, the possibilities for finding the perfect cleaning and maintenance business are endless. Good with your hands? How about a handyman, electrical, or appliance repair franchise. No mechanical skills? That's OK, too - it's not actually necessary to run any of these types of businesses!
Now is actually an excellent time to invest in a cleaning franchise or a maintenance business. As the demand for home services rebounds with the economy, most of these types of franchise opportunities are available at low costs with little or no overhead (and some can be operated as a home business). You can make your future sparkle with any one of these opportunities.
