Dust, pollen, pet hair, and pet dander are the major causes of allergy and asthma symptoms today. New vacuum cleaners have HEPA filters to capture these particles, or use a bagless or steam vapor system. The problem is that not everyone can afford them although they may need them.
Dust, pollen, pet hair and pet dander are the major causes of allergy and asthma symptoms today. New vacuum cleaners have HEPA filters to capture these particles, or use a bagless or steam vapor system. The problem is that not everyone can afford them although they may need them. These cleaners are useful for cleaning things besides floors. Most of them make it easy to clean upholstery and drapes.
You may be wondering what this has to do with making money. No, I’m not suggesting you sell vacuum cleaners! This home business does involve the use of one of these machines though.
-How It Works
One lady. Jenny, got one of these wonder machines because her son was allergic to dust. She promptly vacuumed her whole house including drapes, windows, corners and crevices. When her son came home from his day at school, she noticed that he did not have any trouble breathing like usual.
The next weekend some friends came to visit. The husband had the same problems with dust as Jenny’s son. That evening they had a blast and when her friend got Jenny in the kitchen, she asked what she had done to the house. She had noticed that her husband did not have the sneezing or itchy eyes that he usually had whenever he came over. Jenny told her friend about her new vacuum and her friend asked if she could try it. Since Jenny knew how easy it was to use and her friend worked all day, she volunteered to do it.
When she had completed the job, Jenny’s friend handed her some money and thanked her profusely. Jenny went home thinking about how to start her new Mobile Drape Cleaning business.
-What You Need to Get Started
Of course, the main thing you will need is a great vacuum that will make the job easy. If you already have one, you are way ahead in the process of starting your business. If not, you will need to purchase a machine. Look at the resources at the end for some great machines.
The other things you will need are a car, some business cards, and a few flyers. Hopefully, you already have the car! The business cards and flyers can be made on your computer using pre-cut stock from any office supply store. Choose a bright colored paper for the flyers. Make sure you include your contact information.
Give the business cards to everyone you meet. Post the flyers on every bulletin board you can find. You could also place a small ad in the local paper. Something like DRAPERIES CLEANED IN YOUR HOME SAVE $$$ 555-4321.
