How to Make an App for Cleaning Business?

You can make more money, but not time. Time is a precious commodity that needs to handle because you can’t get back the same. The busy person knows this very well. That’s why people don’t like to invest their time in cleaning rooms, dusting, or other cleaning activities. It’s a torturous chore for them. They are willing to take off the cleaning burden from the shoulder.

This change is experienced worldwide. What’s more?

Technology has helped people get free from cleaning tasks and cleaning tasks done just in a few taps. The uber for cleaning activities have enabled getting cleaners booked at a lightning-fast speed. That’s why steep growth observed in the home service market in the last decade.

Why Is Cleaning Service App Gaining Immense Traction?

  • Accept booking 24/7

It keeps the cleaning companies open 24/7 as the customers can place the cleaning request anytime, anywhere. Depending on the cleaners’ availability, the app automatically dispatches the task to the cleaner and confirms the booking. With the improved visibility into cleaners’ availability, the bookings get accepted round the clock.

  • Serve according to needs and expectations

Irrespective of B2C business types, customer satisfaction, and customer experience are two essential things that businesses can’t overlook. With the mobile app, the company can directly get in touch with the customers and know their preferences and expectations. The seamless communication helps in meeting what the customers need and delighting them.  

  • Build a brand

The mobile app is a powerful tool in your arsenal to raise your cleaning business voice. The business’s logo on the users’ mobile app keeps the business in the sight of the users. It leads to improved brand recognition. Plus, the push notifications help in reminding customers of service status, retargeting the customer with deals, or informing them about booked cleaning activity status. It results in a higher engagement rate as well.

  • Improved conversion and ROI

The simple booking flow and 24/7 accessibility make the cleaning task activity done- a breeze. It stimulates the users to book the cleaning activity on the go, which increases the number of bookings and profits.

How To Create A Cleaning Service App?

  • Select the geographical location

When you are starting a business, decide the location where the cleaning services are in demand. Initially, begin with a small region and even on a shoestring budget, and then gradually increase the service range.

  • Conduct the marketing research

When you have selected the location to serve, it’s vital to analyze- who your customers are and what they need. For instance, private houses, flats, construction companies, or commercial offices. When your customer research is done, the next is competition research. You can analyze what the successful home service cleaning companies are doing and what’s missing. It helps you in creating a distinct niche in the market.  

  • Decide application functionality

To create an excellent solution must have basic features such as map integration, displaying active/inactive cleaners, rating system, push notifications, mobile scheduling, digital transactions, reports, and analytics. Also, the companies can introduce advanced features to differentiate the app in the market.

  • Test the app in real-world

Before going into the market, it’s better to test the water with the MVP way. When the cleaning app with limited functionality is launched, it’s called MVP. It helps to assess the users’ reaction to the app and what needs to change for better results.   

  • Create a marketing plan

The on-demand cleaning app development is a half-won battle. You can win the remaining battle when the app reaches the targeted audience and make them install and use the app repetitively. It comes with the best marketing strategy creation that includes app optimization, social promotion, paid advertising, and others.

  • Team up with the cleaning app development team

When you have everything ready at your end, it’s time to search for the development partner that can get your app build meeting the expectations. Look for the team of project managers, accounting managers, coding superheroes, UI/UX designers, QA & testers, and marketers.

Cost Of Cleaning Service App Development

We provide no ballpark cost or standard rate for building a cleaning app for your business. The unique app needs, feature requirements, and marketing strategies make the cost calculation for every project different. It counts on the development company’s location, developers’ rate, features list, UI/UX comprehensibility, and project management needs.

On average, if you outsource the project to an Indian company, they take 1000-1500 hours to develop the app, and when it’s multiplied by the hourly rate costs between $20-$40, the development cost goes up to $20,000-$60,000.
