#81 – Cleaning Business Owners: If You Want It Done Right, Do It Yourself

Most cleaning business owners feel that no one can do anything as well as they can, so they end up controlling everything that goes on in their business. Even if it means doing it all themselves. This is a recipe for disaster because you simply cannot grow your business unless you give up some control and hire people to take over the tasks you should NOT be doing.

This video will give you the recipe for NOT doing it all yourself.

This episode is made possible by The Janitorial Store’s 6-CD Set, Standard Operating Procedures for Cleaning Companies.

This is a 6-CD Set filled with documents that you can use to create Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) for your cleaning company. You can also use the documents to qualify for CIMS Certification. You also receive a BONUS One Year Membership to The Janitorial Store with purchase. Active members will receive an extra year added onto their membership

    Hi Jean;

    Episode #81. You just told my story word for word in this video. Still doing it all myself.. Tired and frustrated. But determined to move on.

    Hi Doug,

    Glad to hear you’re still determined to move on. It’s certainly not easy owning a business, and even when you think it’s starting to get easier things change and you have a whole new set of challenges. Let your determination work for you and be the driver that keeps you going. And good luck!

    Thanks for the great video. I’ve been trying to do this for the past 5 years and haven’t really gotten to my intended retirement. Your info is spot on as Doug mentioned in his reply. However it is not easy. I intend to show this video to my General Manager who was hired to send me into my retirement. I’m hoping she can grasp the meat of this wonderful info. I of course am the person who has not made the necessary changes here and I applaud you for re-awakening me to the pursuit of my goals. I have always found your videos and site-available information extremely helpful. Many, many thanks to you and Steve over the years.

      Hi Gary,

      Thanks for your feedback on the video. I had a feeling this would strike a chord with people. I certainly have lived it and continue to work on it to this day.

      It really is true that your team makes all the difference. There have been times that I saw great potential in a person that I thought I might not be able to afford, but I hired them anyway and was finally able to move forward. If you aren’t constantly on the lookout for great people, the good ones will pass you by. And then spending the time to train them is an investment that you also need to make in your people.

      Good luck with your manager!

    This spoke volumes to our owner and management. That fear of something not getting done right is an unbearable weight. Our bar is set high on purpose so that our employees can see what a clean facility should look like daily. Implementing the system is our Achilles heal.
