  • Business plan:  Create a plan outlining your services, target market, pricing strategy, marketing approach, and financial projections.

2. Business Registration and Legalities

  • Register your business: Decide on a business structure (sole proprietorship or Sdn Bhd) and register with the Companies Commission of Malaysia (CCM).

  • Licenses and permits: Obtain any necessary licenses or permits from your local authorities, which may vary depending on your location.

  • Business bank account: Open a dedicated business bank account to separate personal and business finances.

3. Insurance

  • Public liability insurance: Protect yourself from any accidents or damages that may occur during cleaning services.

4. Operations

  • Equipment and supplies: Invest in high-quality cleaning equipment and eco-friendly cleaning supplies.

  • Recruitment (if needed): Recruit reliable and trustworthy cleaners. Consider background checks and training programs.

  • Scheduling and communication: Develop a system for scheduling cleaning services, communicating with clients, and managing bookings.

5. Marketing and Promotion

  • Develop a brand identity: Create a professional logo and branding that reflects your company's values.

  • Marketing strategies: Utilize online platforms, social media marketing, local advertising, and networking to reach your target audience.

  • Customer service:  Provide excellent customer service to build trust and encourage repeat business.

How Much does a Cleaner Cost in Malaysia

The cost of a cleaning service in Malaysia depends on several factors, but here's a breakdown to give you an idea:

  • Hourly Rate: This ranges from RM25 to RM40 per hour, with Kuala Lumpur averaging slightly higher at RM31 [Expatistan] ([price of hourly rate for cleaning help in kuala lumpur is rm31 expatistan ON]).

  • Package Deals: Companies often offer service packages based on frequency (weekly, bi-weekly, monthly) and property size (studio apartment, bungalow). Prices can start around RM100 for a one-time clean of a small space and go up from there [Kilatpro, Malaysia's Most Reliable & Effective House Cleaning Packages].

Here are some additional factors that can affect the cost:

  • Property size and type: Bigger houses naturally cost more to clean.

  • Frequency of service: Weekly cleaning will be more expensive than a one-time deep clean.

  • Extra services: Services like carpet cleaning, window cleaning, or laundry may incur additional charges.

  • Providing cleaning supplies: Some cleaners might charge extra if they need to bring their own supplies.
