Residential cleaning franchises have been revolutionized in recent years, as families increasingly seek trustworthy brands with
expert skills. As a result, franchise business owners (franchisees) in the sector are a far cry from those of even three years ago.
Today’s residential cleaning professionals often have sophisticated qualifications and high earning expectations. Due to industry
growth, these franchises have branched into niche areas, ranging from basic home and window cleaning to HVAC maintenance and
clarification. Their services are now more comprehensive, with additions such as online cleaning advice, gift certificates, and green-
friendly services, often on a turnkey basis.
This is a business opportunity that is expanding, with employed mothers struggling to find time for their home chores. According
to Statistics Canada, the residential cleaning sector is currently worth more than $3.6 billion. With Canada being one of the world’s
most successful franchising regions, the home cleaning industry is projected to grow enormously. This is not simply a local trend; a
cleaning franchise took eighth place on Forbes “list of top” franchises for the buck.
One of the reasons for this is the wide gap between low start-up costs and potential returns.
Specialized cleaning services, such as eco-friendly options, add significantly to demand. Canadian households have shrunk their
emissions by 29% in 17 years, and businesses are spending 5.3% more on environmental protection.
