There are no restrictions on using the word “professional”. It is used so frequently in marketing that it almost loses meaning. Because so many businesses call themselves “professional”, it starts to feel like a synonym for “business”. If it’s a business, it has to be professional, right? Wrong. That isn’t true, especially when it comes to a house cleaning business. There are several measures and checkpoints which separates the well-meaning folks from a professional house cleaning company.

Choosing a franchise after a successful career is not only popular decision, but also on trend. According to a poll by TD Canada Trust showed that 54% of people 51 - 65 consider starting a franchise after taking retirement.

They were planning a vacation and were looking for a company to provide home check services. Looking through our website, they saw that there was the opportunity to open an office in Kanata and Stittsville. Scott was retiring and they had been discussing running a home based franchise.
