Making the Switch to Cleaning

It’s survived the 2008-09 recession, hit some highs and lows over the past decade, and just last year began experiencing a new lease on life.

Today, it’s an essential service that’s likely to rapidly expand over the next few years. The cleaning industry is booming – now is the time to make the switch!


The Two Types of Cleaner


Commercial Cleaner

Provides services to shopping centres, restaurants, factories, warehouses, retail stores, schools, offices and other commercial outlets. Typically accounts for a third of total business – but it’s a safer bet when there are low vacancy rates for commercial spaces.


Domestic Cleaner

Generally focuses on homes and residential apartments. Most popular in areas where the occupants make above-average income. Typical customers are people looking to free up some time in their week to spend on other activities.

Both domestic and commercial cleaning break down into various subdivisions.
A Domestic Cleaner could work for a company that specialises in fortnightly cleans, including laundry and other household chores. Alternatively, they could work for a business that provides rental property “exit” cleans.

Commercial Cleaners, on the other hand, may need OH&S training specific to the sites they’re working on, or they may need training on commercial cleaning equipment.
