2021 – What does it mean for ServiceMaster Clean?

If you are thinking about joining our brand this year, but have concerns over the current situation and the affect that it may have, this blog is for you.

In 2020, the ServiceMaster Clean franchise became stronger as it adapted to the ‘new normal’ and as such, pushed the business model to new heights. All businesses found their feet to open safely when they could, following government guidelines to provide both regular commercial cleaning, as well as carpet and upholstery cleaning in the home or business.

As we enter in to the third national lockdown, working in the home is permitted in most parts of the UK, and providing essential commercial cleaning services is allowed. As such, the ServiceMaster Clean brand enter in to 2021 with strong plans to deliver professional cleaning services, to help towards keeping the UK safe across the board.

At the very beginning of the pandemic, as the franchisor we were able to roll out and franchise owners were able to adapt to new working conditions to ensure the safe delivery of regular commercial cleaning services and carpet & upholstery cleaning services, to not only protect our customers and clients, but our valued employees too.

Cleaning is very much in the public eye at the moment and as such, cleaning services are in growing demand and are valued amongst all business sectors as it helps them to protect their own customers and employees by keeping their premises clean and hygienic. This would be hard for them to maintain if they were to undertake these services themselves. Outsourcing to a professional such as ServiceMaster Clean helps them to rubber stamp their cleaning practises and free up valuable time to spend on other areas of the business.  ServiceMaster use an exclusive cleaning product that is effective against enveloped viruses, (like that of Coronavirus) so our services have been sought by many.

Carpet and upholstery cleaning can be bought online by our residential customers meaning that they can make this purchase, safely in the comfort of their own home ahead of a technician undertaking the clean at a convenient time for the customer, at a social distance in their home, with specialist products.

This year, like any other year, our support as a franchisor continues. Business owners will receive unlimited support in not only all of the necessary business disciplines required to operate a first-rate ServiceMaster Clean business, but also updates and guidance on the current and ongoing situation with regards to the pandemic. A sympathetic ear is also always available from a peer network of existing ServiceMaster Clean business owners.

With the added learnings and experiences from 2020 across a wide franchise network, the momentum is already there to build on 2020 and to make 2021 a better year.
