    To my knowledge there is no 'cleaning license' required Rebeca. You will however need a business license and liability insurance.

    If you have no experience in business especially the cleaning business at all then I suggest that you go to work for one and learn the business from the inside. Too many people think that running or owning a cleaning business is an easy and quick money thing, it is not. Most who start without any knowledge or experience fail quickly.

    Do your due diligence. Get experience, learn, but just not this business learn how to run a business and your chances for success will be much greater.

    I have had my own cleaning business for over 20 years. Prior to this I worked for 5 years in this business starting in sales and ending up as VP of Sales and Marketing. This gave me a firm foundation to start on my own. I attended any and all conferences, study groups, took classes, learned how to run a stripper, scrubber, and learned how to properly clean windows... and so much more.

    We are not especially large, I make a decent living, we do about 7.5 million per year. We specialize in medical cleaning; hospitals, clinics, etc. We found our niche and that helps a lot. I/we learn something new every day and try to use it.

    Good luck,
