Tile and Grout Cleaning Franchise: 5 Drawbacks and What's Better


Tile and grout cleaning is a specialized sector within the cleaning and restoration industry. It primarily focuses on the cleaning and maintenance of tiled surfaces, as well as the grout lines that hold the tiles in place. With tile commonly used for kitchen, bathrooms, and other high-traffic areas of a home, regular cleaning and maintenance is essential.  

While this may make opening a tile and grout cleaning franchise seem like a great idea, it’s important to do your research before you decide it’s the best investment for you.

The Trouble with a Tile Cleaning Franchise

There are 5 main drawbacks to owning a tile and grout cleaning franchise.

Expensive equipment. To do this job properly, you’ll need to purchase high-pressure steam cleaners, scrubbers, and extraction machines. You may also want to invest in hard-surface detail tools to clean difficult corners and tight spaces, and wands with adjustable handles for smaller areas. This will add thousands of dollars to your startup costs.

Physical demands. Cleaning tile and grout can be physically demanding and labor-intensive. You or your employees will spend long hours scrubbing, cleaning, and maintaining tile and grout. The wear and tear on your body can be significant.

Limited scope of work. As someone who cleans and repairs tile and grout, you’ll be called on to do the same types of jobs again and again. It may be easy to get bored, especially since there’s no creativity called for in your work.

Limited repeat business. Once the job is done, it's done, and clients may not need your services again for a long time. This means your revenue stream can be inconsistent, and you'll constantly need to search for new customers to sustain your business.

Attracting customers. Many consumers are unaware of the benefits of hiring a professional to clean their grout or may not be aware such businesses exist. They mistakenly believe that they can do the job with a scrub brush and some bleach, or that they need to renovate to remove their old tile.
