How-to Start a Construction Cleanup Service - Mitch Hardin


1. Getting Down to Business (The Gold Rush)

During the Gold Rush of 1848-1855 in California, there were plenty of fortunes made. In fact, there was more wealth created during that time than any other given seven-year period in American history.

When word got out that John Sutter had discovered a nugget of gold in the hills of northern California, more than 300,000 people—from California, the United States, and all over the world—came to stake a claim and try their hand at prospecting. Before 1848, the entire non-native population of California (which was not yet a state) was only two thousand, so you can see why it’s called the Gold Rush!

We’ve all read about it in our history books, but what most people don’t realize is that the real money wasn’t made in gold at all. For every person who struck it rich while prospecting for gold, there were probably a thousand who made a quick buck and spent it just as quickly or never found gold at all. What the history books don’t tell you is that the real and lasting wealth was actually in the services that catered to those 49ers.

Hotels. Restaurants. Saloons. Laundry. Tailors. General stores. Suppliers. Railroad builders. Shipping. Taverns and houses of ill repute. They popped up everywhere from the Embarcadero in San Francisco to Sutter’s Fort in now-Sacramento.

These businesses offered a far less glamorous way to make money but had some serious upsides: very little or no risk, far less competition in their chosen vocation, and a ravenous market demand. People literally couldn’t get their hands-on needed goods or services fast enough. At the height of the gold frenzy, a single egg cost $25 and a pair of sturdy boots went for $2,000 or more!

When it comes down to it, the people who sold the shovels made more money than the people who used them. I bet you can’t tell me one single family or company whose intergenerational wealth originated in the Gold Rush, but you’re probably familiar with iconic brands like Levi Strauss, Wells Fargo, and Armour Foods that started as merchants during the boom time.

These days, I see a parallel in the construction industry. Specifically, in the construction cleanup industry.

No, it’s not as sophisticated or sexy as panning for gold, flipping houses, or making millions of dollars as an Instagram or YouTube marketer. But, how many of those folks really succeed?

Instead, construction cleanup is a field that, like the early Gold Rush merchants, offers low start-up costs and barriers to entry, very low risk, solves a problem and fills an important need, is just specialized enough to minimize competition, and is as steady as selling pairs of boots or harvesting eggs.

In this guide, we’re going to break down every facet of starting your own construction cleanup business. We’ll painstakingly answer all of your questions, provide resources, and give you everything you need to get up and running (and earning income!).

Of course, you’ll have to work hard, think strategically, and follow all the laws, regulations, and best practices we outline here. But I assure you, if you do all this, the opportunities are golden with construction cleanup.

2. Welcome to the Field of Construction Cleanup!

Construction cleanup is the final phase of a construction project and has to occur before the tenant or owner can take possession and occupy the property. A responsibility of the builder or owner, it is a necessary job on each and every construction or remodeling project.

You may be wondering what this cleanup entails. The first phase is rough cleanup, which involves removing materials and debris from both the inside and outside of the building. Next, specialized final or detail cleanup involves cleaning and polishing the inside fixtures, flooring, and windows for both commercial and residential properties. Both phases are important in completing a project, but the focus of this guide will be the detail phase, including setting up your business for success.

As communities grow, hospitals, schools, retail businesses, churches, and hotels are needed. When the economy is robust, building and remodeling projects spring up in every city and region of the country. Everywhere you turn, you’ll notice technology companies, start-ups, and abundant new office space, which all require the services of specialized cleaning companies.

This presents a great opportunity for you, the entrepreneur looking to start up their first construction cleanup firm, or existing cleaning business owners who want to shift into the commercial realm.

All this adds up to a bright (and lucrative) future if you’re in the construction cleanup business!
