Cleaning Business Tip: Cleaning Checklists?

Whether you’re starting a cleaning business or simply want to learn new and better ways to keep your existing commercial cleaning, janitorial or residential cleaning company – profitable. In these videos Dan covers everything from the latest trends in janitorial bidding, scheduling, timekeeping, invoicing and inspection software /app to proven marketing strategies to help you grow.

Makes sense – a checklist – a guide your cleaning staff can follow and initial each duty as they complete it.  No doubt about it, if getting and keeping a building clean was as simple as giving each cleaner a checklist of tasks they need to perform and ‘sign off’ on each night – running a janitorial business would be so much easier. But, is it really as simple as that? Let’s talk about it.

Check out today’s fast paced video, where Dan reveals what cleaning checklists can and can’t do – by giving a practical example, not in cleaning but in exercising/body building.  They may seem completely different.  But, listen and see if you agree they aren’t in important ways that reveal what checklists can do and what they simply can’t do.

Hi Scott, well, first, thanks for watching my videos, and I hear what you're saying about the way I recorded the videos in earlier years. It's amazing how fast the years go by and how many videos I've recorded over that time; I think it's well over 600 now. Anyway, I appreciate that you liked the older format, but as you know, time moves forward and things change. And, in keeping with that idea, recently I've been using a different, non 'studio format; which truthfully I've found to be a bit more relaxed and easier to create. But, tell you what, I'll definitely keep your thoughts in mind, as I continue to record them, and who knows, possibly change yet again. Seems to be one of the themes of life - change. Take care, Dan


Dan, I miss your studio video's being in the studio wearing the Clean Guru shirt etc, the image of Cleanbid from what I remember. All your video's are spot on but the video's I revisit are the old ones going back 10 years ago.
