5 Cleaning Businesses for Sale in this $14 Billion industry.

Over the past 5 years the need for cleaning services have grown in popularity, partly driven by the need for sanitisation since COVID. There is an increased demand in the commercial and private sectors due to housing development, health orders and balancing new work-from-home conditions. At Bsale, we have hundreds of cleaning business for sale that you could consider. 

In Australia, commercial cleaning is a $14 billion dollar industry, with 38,605 businesses and employing 173,500 people. The typical services offered by a cleaning business for sale include:

  • Interior building
  • Exterior building and windows
  • Washroom services
  • Carpet and Floor
  • Street and road
  • Residential Services
  • Industrial Services
  • Waste Management

Cleaning businesses for sale are a popular choice when thinking of buying an opportunity due to companies becoming more popular and becoming quite profitable thanks to the increase in real estate investments and new home builds that are seeing people take great pride in their homes. Couple this with the pandemic, and people are more invested in keeping their domestic and commercial residences free of germs, and you are on to a winner!

When considering buying a cleaning business for sale, it is imperative to look into the government grants that may be available to support your business expansion or employ more people.

This grant is targeted at small to medium-sized organisations and a carpet cleaning business for sale may be eligible for an upfront payment of between $25,000 to $50,000.
