Industry Spotlight: Cleaning services

By Nick Hall | 10 Oct 2018 View comments

The categoric rise of the ‘Do-It-For-Me’ generation has seen a wide range of industries evolve, none more so than the cleaning services sector.

The commercial cleaning services industry has performed strongly for a number of years, with industry revenue expected to grow at an annualised rate of five per cent for the next five years.

Similarly, an increase in dual-income households and an ageing population have created a fierce demand for residential cleaning services in Australia.

With business numbers and consumer confidence on the rise, Inside Franchise Business takes a look at three franchise brands helping boost the cleaning services industry.


Specialist cleaning franchise, Ovenu has refined its franchise system to develop a model that provides franchisees with the best chance to build a successful, profitable and enjoyable business.

The professional oven cleaning and detailing service presents an opportunity to enter the booming residential cleaning industry with a niche service offering that caters to a national audience.

Franchisees can expect comprehensive training and support, flexible working hours and full membership of both the Australian and British Franchise Associations.

If you value work/life balance and a detailed career trajectory, Ovenu provides a strong basis for franchisee growth.

The Leather Doctor

Australia’s leading franchise for mobile home services in leather, The Leather Doctor provides services across a wide range of industries including furniture, automotive, marine, retail and hospitality.

No background experience is necessary, with ongoing support and specialist training provided by the franchisor through a comprehensive four-week program.

Franchisees enjoy a strong work/life balance and the backing of a proven system of franchise success that has seen Leather Doctor twice named as one of Australia’s Top Five Franchise Systems.

Chem-Dry Australia

With over 30 years of franchise experience, Chem-Dry Carpet Cleaning has built a solid network of over 3500 franchise partners across the globe.

The healthy, green alternative to traditional carpet cleaning, Chem-Dry is committed to providing franchisees with state of the art training, dedicated on-going national office support and the opportunity to build a successful business.

Franchisees must be motivated, and customer service orientated with the desire to deliver the highest quality service to all customers.

The franchise is a complete turnkey business, meaning that everything is taken care of by the franchisor, providing a seamless and accessible pathway to business ownership within the booming cleaning industry.

Industry future

As more businesses outsource tasks to concentrate on core activities, and Australians become increasing time-poor, the cleaning services industry will undoubtedly grow.

If you are an entrepreneur that recognises an industry on the move and doesn’t mind getting their hands dirty, consider a franchise opportunity in the cleaning services industry.
