As with any skilled trade, you'll need your own cleaning equipment in order to properly do your job. The good news is that the equipment you'll need is relatively inexpensive, especially when you consider how much you can earn. As well, it can be claimed as a business expense so it can be used as a tax deduction.
- Our online training program provides a complete list of the cleaning equipment you'll need
Your cleaning equipment or cleaning kit, as we call it, consists of basic cleaning equipment such as a cleaning apron, a simple canister vacuum, a mop set, some cleaning cloths, an extendable duster, a few other items and a special plastic rolling tool-box that you'll use to keep it all organized and bring it in and out of our Customers homes.
- Your cleaning equipment can be purchased at Walmart or Amazon
- Your online training program has links to the cleaning equipment you'll need
Truly, your cleaning equipment is a small and marginal cost when you factor in the amount of money you can make from that equipment as a Professional House Cleaner in our network.
- Your cleaning equipment will cost you about $200
*You don't have to get your equipment until after your online training program is complete but you will need it before you can begin cleaning in our network.
We require you to carry a special kind of insurance called Commercial General Liability Insurance (CGLI). It protects you in case of accidental damage to a Customer's house or if something of value is accidentally broken, etc.
For a lot of people the thought of getting any kind of insurance is painful as it brings back memories of shopping around for prices, being made to feel small and sometimes, unfortunately, being overcharged and taken advantage of.
Don't worry because getting GCLI can be done online in under five minutes, is inexpensive and we even have a marketing agreement with a preferred provider too. Of course, you are free to get your CGLI from whomever you want but in our online training program we'll provide you with a link to a fantastic online provider.
- Our online training has in-depth information on Commercial General Liability Insurance.
As we know getting insurance can cause some people anxiety in our online training program we even supply you with a video showing how to get CGLI step by step.
- Our online training has video that shows how to get Commercial General Liability Insurance
This insurance can be paid on a month to month basis to the insurance company, can be gotten online in just minutes, is inexpensive at approximately $44/month and can be cancelled at any time without penalty.
- $2,000,000 of insurance protection for just $44/month is just plain smart
With our high payouts the insurance cost is a small price. You can make back the cost for the entire month in less than two hours cleaning!
*You don't have to get your insurance until after your online training program is complete but will need it before you can begin cleaning in our network.
*44/month is an estimate only based on what others in our network pay.
* Most insurers want the first two months up front so the initial cost is approximately $90
When booking, Customers can opt to have you supply the cleaning products, such as multi-purpose, floor and glass cleaner, for an add-on fee. This is a great benefit to our Customers and a fantastic way to earn extra income for our Professional House Cleaners!
- Product add-on income really adds up over the year and is easy money!
Even if the Customer don't choose the product add-on option you're still required to have the right cleaning products on hand, just in case the Customer is missing something. If you have to use it you'll get paid 80% of the add-on fee.
- Your cleaning products can be purchased at Walmart or Amazon
- Our online training provides a complete list of the cleaning products you'll need
- Your online training has links to the cleaning equipment you'll need
Your initial supply will cost approximately $50 and you'll make great money from that $50. For example, multi-purpose cleaner only costs a couple of dollars and makes dozens of spray bottles full of multi-purpose cleaner.
*You don't have to get your cleaning products until after your online training program is complete but will need it before you can begin cleaning in our network.
Criminal Record Check*
As you will be going into peoples homes we require you to pass a Criminal Record Check, also known as a CRC. If you already have one you will get a chance to upload it when you onboard with us but it must be less than 12 months old.
- Your CRC must be less than 12 months old
The CRC you supply must state on it that it searched the national RCMP database called the Canadian Police Information Centre (CPIC).
- Your CRC must be a CPIC one or it can not be accepted
If you don't have a recent CRC then you can get one through an RCMP detachment but it will take a long time to arrive and delay how long it will take to get started with us so it is recommended to get one through an online provider. Most take just fifteen minutes!
- You can get an RCMP/CPIC CRC in about 15 minutes online
In our online training program we recommend a great online CRC provider that is considerably less expensive than most you'll find online at approximately $30. Of course, you're free to use whomever you like but in our online training we do provide you with a link directly to our preferred supplier.
*Please note that a CRC is a 100% requirement.
*If you are an international student or on a work permit, etc, you still must supply a CRC. You can get one online too but will have to supply where you llived in the last five years even if they are outside Canada.
