Step one: Learn how to pressure wash
This may seem obvious, but the first step is to learn the business inside and out. It may be true that actually operating the machine is not hard, but you must know the right techniques. For example, you must know how to find the delicate battle between strength and care when you are cleaning fragile surfaces.
There are a few ways you can learn the basics. First, you can check out videos online. You could work with a local company to learn the business from them. Or perhaps you can simply get the equipment you need and practice at your home. The key is to make sure that you can truly offer exceptional services before charging for them.
Step two: Create a business plan
As is true of starting any type of business, a pressure washing startup is likely to be more successful if you have a business plan in place. It should include what equipment you will need, how much you will charge, how much capital you need to get started, how you will market your company, who you will target, and your expected expenses.
Step three: Get the necessary permits and insurance
The type of business permit you need will vary based on your location. You may want to talk to an attorney to ensure you are following rules correctly. You will also need insurance to ensure that you are protected if an accident happens.
Step four: Let the world know you are ready to begin
Once you have a plan and have executed it you are ready to get started. You may want to begin by offering free or low-cost cleaning to get reviews on the major review sites. You may hand out coupons in the neighborhood. You may target a particular demographic, such as business owners dealing with graffiti.
No matter what your marketing plan consists of, your business will not be successful if you do not start with high-quality equipment and supplies. At Geyser Equipment we have all the items you need. Give us a call at 951-509-9269 to learn more.
