House Cleaning Franchise: Pros, Cons, and Alternative Franchises


If you’re thinking about purchasing a house cleaning franchise, explore the pros and cons first. Then, consider some lower-risk franchise opportunities.

Pros of Cleaning Franchises

American families are busy. Dual-income families are the norm and balancing work with childcare, household chores, and self-care is challenging. Parents aren’t the only ones who are crunched for time. On top of a full day at school, at least 84% of parents who earn more than $75,000 enroll their kids in sports, while 62% sign their children up for music, dance, or art classes, a survey conducted by Pew Research revealed.


Rising income levels are making it possible for people to lighten the load and improve their homes by outsourcing household chores. High demand is making it an optimal time to consider opening a house cleaning franchise. Being able to rely on a regular service to take care of mundane household chores is invaluable. Investing in a franchise allows you to operate a recognizable brand with a history of success. Plus, a reputable franchise will provide the training, tools, and support you need to get started.


Increasing health and safety standards are also prompting people to hire cleaning services. They ensure the air quality in a home is clean and fresh to prevent unwelcome allergies and other health concerns. Clearing out the cobwebs and regularly cleaning household items can help extend the life of furniture, carpet, and drapery.

Cons of Cleaning Franchises

Investing in a house cleaning franchise allows you to pursue a business in a high-demand industry with recurring revenue and high-profit potential. The residential cleaning services market is forecast to generate $1.2 billion this year, up 3.2% from 2022, according to IBISWorld.


However, keep in mind that high competition and a low barrier to entry make it difficult to gain traction in the market — at least 20 residential and commercial cleaning franchises earned a spot on Entrepreneur magazine’s Franchise 500 ranking. A tight labor market is also making it difficult to find reliable staff to facilitate growth.
