Starting Off a Cleaning Business

Remember the excitement when you started your cleaning business? It was probably just you and a few buddies handling everything. It felt awesome seeing all your appointment slots getting filled up. But then, things got a bit messy, right? I totally get it; I’ve worked with over 50 home service companies and have seen this happen a lot.

Crunching the Numbers: Your Roadmap to Better Profits

Let’s dive into some simple math to improve your profit margins. Think of it like a recipe for success:

Revenue per Customer – Customer Acquisition Cost (CAC) – Cleaner’s Salary – Operating Costs = Your Profit Margin

Revenue per New Customer

First, figure out how much you’re making from each new customer. Just divide your total monthly revenue from new customers by the number of new customers.

Example: You made $10,000 from 50 new customers this month. So, each new customer brought in about $200.

Customer Acquisition Cost (CAC)

Next, work out how much it costs to get each new customer. This includes your spending on ads and other platforms like Google, Facebook, Helpling, Airtasker etc.

Example: If you spent $2,000 on marketing and got 50 new customers, your CAC is $40 per customer.

Cleaner’s Salary

This one’s straightforward if you pay hourly. Just add up the total hours spent servicing new customers and multiply by the hourly wage.

Example: Say your cleaners worked 185 hours at $18 per hour for new customers. That’s $3,330 in total, or $67 per new customer.

Operating Costs

Finally, add up all other costs – like support staff, office expenses, etc.

Example: If your total operating costs are $3,500, and 80% of it relates to new customers, then your cost per new customer is $56.

The Big Picture

Putting it all together, you can calculate your margin per customer.

Example Calculation: $200 (Revenue) – $40 (CAC) – $67 (Cleaner’s Salary) – $56 (Ops Cost) = $37 Profit per Customer
