Identifying your target market is important because it allows you to set your cleaning services, hourly rate, and marketing strategy based on the needs of your ideal customers. It also allows you to distinguish your business from other competitors. Start by researching commercial cleaning companies and the services they offer. Once you have picked the services you want to offer you can now identify which businesses will benefit from your services. 

For example, Stratus Building Solutions’ early adoption of Green Seal environmental certifications caters to customers’ growing need for sustainable, non-toxic cleaning services. Providing employees and customers in multiple industries a safe environment to be entered immediately after cleaning.
