Reviewed by Teodora Totorean for Readers' Favorite

Start a Home Cleaning Business by Amber Richards begins with a brainstorming session that is meant to clarify why you want to start this business and how you are going to operate this business. This is a necessary step in order to move forward and actually start a home cleaning business. The book covers other aspects too: financial elements (having employers, opening a bank account, getting insurance, other tax related information); choosing your cleaning products; advice and tips on cleaning methods and tools; setting a price for your service; how to gain your clients’ trust and how to find good referrals when first starting your business; marketing strategies, etc. The book finishes with some examples of specialized cleaning services should one wish to go in any of those directions.

I found Start a Home Cleaning Business by Amber Richards very useful for anyone who intends to take the home cleaning direction and start their business endeavour. Written from Richards’ personal experience, the book is authentic and straight to the point. The language is easy to understand and the concepts are easy to process and follow through. The table of contents gives readers an idea of what the book covers so if they already have some experience in the field, they can jump straight to the chapter they are interested in reading. However, if you are a novice in this field, I recommend you read carefully every chapter and assimilate the knowledge so you know what to do when taking the next step. I found the brain storming chapter at the beginning of the book to be particularly interesting and equally useful so you can set up the basis of your cleaning business straight away.
