Why The Cleaning Authority?

Cleaning services are something that every home needs. Consumer spending in this category continues to grow year over year with the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics predicting the overall demand for household cleaning services to grow at an annual rate of 7% through 2018.

If you are like most people, you probably never thought about the opportunity that exists within the residential cleaning industry. Think again. The Cleaning Authority is a tested business model with franchisees generating $1.1 million in average annual unit revenue and our top third generating over $1.6 million in revenue in 2013*.

That sort of success is possible because we combine simple business fundamentals with sophisticated systems and an unprecedented support infrastructure to help franchise owners achieve their goals. Our owners don't work in? the business they work on? it, focusing on overall business operations, not cleaning homes.
