|For over 25 years Cleaning Consultant Services, Inc. has provided small business owners, schools, hospitals, manufacturers, institutions, and contract cleaners with information, publications and consulting services related to cleaning and business management.
In an effort to meet the growing demand for our services in the United States and Internationally, we have begun a licensing program to provide qualified professionals with an opportunity to become an Associate Consultant in their local area.
We do not provide cleaning services. Our sole purpose is to provide support services to those who own, manage, and/or supervise cleaning operations.
Our consultants generate income by providing one or more of the following support services.
A. SOFTWARE SUPPORT BUREAU
B. BOOKS, VIDEOS, SOFTWARE, SALES
C. CLEANING BUSINESS MAGAZINE
E. VOCATIONAL SCHOOLS
F. SEMINARS AND WORKSHOPS
G. CERTIFIED INSPECTIONS
H. CONSULTING SERVICES
I. SMALL BUSINESS CONSULTANT
J. HOW WE WORK
A. SOFTWARE SUPPORT BUREAU contents
A major component of our licensing program is software. New programs enable our consultants to market
themselves not only as experts on cleaning, but as professionals who can provide computerized support services for
cleaning departments and companies more economically than can be done in-house. Our customized software allows
you to -Quality assurance inspections
-Workloading and staffing
-Personnel records maintenance
-Project and floor care scheduling
-Estimating and bidding
Having factual information readily available allows a manager, supervisor, or owner to make informed decisions.
Businesses use our service bureau because it allows them to have the benefits of computerization without the cost of
staffing, training, software or hardware purchases. And if they decide to purchase the software later, their information is already entered and up-to-date.
B. BOOKS, VIDEOS, SOFTWARE,SALES contents
All the publications, software, and video tapes listed in this catalogue may be sold by our local licensee and
purchased from us at a discount. To increase sales, we suggest placing display racks at local rental, hardware, and
janitorial supply stores to allow those interested in cleaning and self-employment easy access to our products.
C. CLEANING BUSINESS MAGAZINE AND LOCAL DIRECTORY contents
A local licensee is entitled to dis-tribute and sell subscriptions and ad-vertising for Cleaning Business Maga-zine, our
trade industry publication. We also encourage you to work with us to develop a directory of cleaning related resources in your local com-munity. The directory identifies busi-nesses providing services such as: janitorial, carpet
and upholstery cleaning, fire restoration, insurance, supplies, equip-ment, training, and other related services.
Advertising and enhanced listings can be sold to local contractors, manufacturers and suppliers. Over a period of
time each local directory can develop into an independent publication that would be sold and distributed in your area.
Until that time, it would be included as a center insert in each copy of Cleaning Business Magazine mailed to your
area. Licensees receive a commission on all subscriptions and advertising sold.
D.TEMPORARY EMPLOYMENT contents
Considering the staffing crisis the cleaning industry faces, a temporary employment agency can be a valu-able and
profitable service. After screening and training prospective employees, they would be referred to temporary
assignments with local employers. For your services, you would expect to earn $2.00 to $5.00 an hour for every
hour a referred worker is on the job. We expect the need for this service to grow considerably in the future and it
ties in nicely with many of the other services a licensee can provide.
E. VOCATIONAL SCHOOLS contents
Operating a vocational training program, either privately or in cooperation with a high school, com-munity college or
university is another possibility. This provides exposure, income and a place to share knowledge, as well as an
opportunity to promote your services and students to the local cleaning industry. Many of the books we offer are
ideal training materials for such programs.
F. SEMINARS AND WORKSHOPS contents
We expect each consultant to co-sponsor cleaning seminars in their area, at least once a year. Mr. Griffin is available
to visit your area to con-duct seminars at a reduced rate and is willing to share the platform with you. A wide variety
of seminar topics of interest to cleaning professionals are available to choose from. Cleaning Consultants will
provide national advertising, speakers, training materials, and certification for all co-sponsored seminars. To
increase attendance, seminars can be sponsored in cooperation with local associations, manufacturers, supplies,
schools and agencies.
G. CERTIFIED INSPECTIONS contents
With specialized training and certification, a licensee can provide inspection services for carpet mills, fiber
producers, retailers, consumers and others. This is a rapidly growing market due to the increasing number of claims
being received regarding carpeting, rugs, resilient flooring and upholstery. These claims specifically relate to fiber,
manufacture, cleaning, installation and wear.
Your inspection service can be expanded to include hard and resilient floors, draperies, upholstery, wall coverings,
odor, building maintenance and cleaning.
H. CONSULTING SERVICES contents
As a cleaning consultant, your goal is to provide services to estab-lished clients who pay you an hourly fee or
monthly retainer. Our con-sulting rates range from a low of $30 to a high of $150 per hour depending on the
services we provide and who we are assisting. Some support services, such as data entry, are charged at a lower
Common services provided include housekeeping audits, writing contracts and specifications, expert testimony,
training materials development and con-ducting classes for supervisors, managers and em-ployees. Any situation
you are not comfortable handling, we are here to help you with via the phone, or on-site if necessary.
I. SMALL BUSINESS CONSULTANT contents
With our materials and market-ing guidance, you can establish your-self as a local authority on starting and operating
cleaning related busi-nesses. The classified ads in most communities list cleaning business opportunities costing
several thou-sand dollars. For several hundred dollars, you can help any hard working individual start and operate
his or her own successful cleaning business. Specialties can include any of the following: carpet and upholstery
cleaning, window washing, housecleaning, office cleaning, pressure washing, fire, odor and water damage
restoration, blind and drapery cleaning, and ceiling cleaning, to list only the most common.
Small business services alone can generate several hundred dollars a week in most metropolitan areas once you
establish yourself as a local authority and resource. We believe our licensing agree-ment provides you with an
excellent opportunity to expand your income and operate your own full or part time consulting business in your area.
Our licensing fee is simple and straightforward, $2,500.00 down and a $60.00 per month fee as long as you
maintain a business license, Yellow Pages ad or offer a cleaning related consulting service.
You are also required to co-sponsor at least one seminar tour with Mr. Griffin in your area each year, and actively
promote and use our books and pub-lications.
We will do our best to help you expand your income and succeed as a Cleaning Consultant Services, Inc. licensee.
We will provide copy for your adver-tising program and brochures. Although you have to do the legwork and
invest both time and money, we will guide you through the entire process.
Like any business opportunity, there are risks involved and there are no guarantees. However, in our opinion, an
excellent income generating opportunity exists for those who know the cleaning industry, are hard-working, and
have confidence in their ability to promote themselves to local businesses and individuals.
