Many people enjoy relaxing in the swimming pool on a hot day. It is also a necessity for hotels and apartment complexes. Swimming pools are also a source of pride for people who own a homeowner. It is very important for people to keep their pools cleaned. A dirty pool can be a health hazard. Additionally, business owners can be fined if they do not keep their pool cleaned.
That is why many choose to hire professional pool cleaners. A professional pool cleaning busy can be quite lucrative, but you will need to invest about $2,000 to get started. You will spend your days adjusting and checking chemical levels, maintaining pool equipment and doing routine. Not only can you clean pools, but you can also clean hot tubes and services spas. One of the many great things about running a pool cleaning business is that you can set your own hours. You may also be able to run your business part-time.
Homeowners and people who own hotels, motels, apartments or condominium complexes will most likely be in the greatest need of your pool cleaning business. However, you can also target health clubs and schools. You can start your business by forming relationships with the pool builders and pool supply stores in your area. You should pass out your business cards and ask them to refer their clients to you.
You will also need to introduce yourself to the manager of the pool company and leave your fliers and business cards. You may not get a response immediately, but you should call them back and remind them that you are still available. Additionally, you should send brochures and fliers to the homeowners in your area. You should include a free pool checkup and/or introductory discount in the flier.
What Type of Equipment Do You Need?
Most states require you to get certified before you can legally clean pools. If you have any questions, then you should check with the health department in your area. You will need skimmers, hoses, poles, a trailer or pickup truck, chemicals and test kits to run your business. You will also need a hat and sunscreen.
