The Cleaning Authority provides house cleaning services for clients across the United States and Canada. Founded in 1977 in the Baltimore-Washington D.C. metro area, The Cleaning Authority was one of the first whole house cleaning services in its region. We began franchising in 1996, and our firm commitment to quality and reputation for excellent service over the course of 25 years has allowed us to grow to include more than 219 locations across North America. We are committed to supporting individual franchisee growth by providing strong marketing, technology, and operational support.

The Cleaning Authority Advantage

The cleaning industry has a unique advantage over other franchises because of its ability to withstand the ups and downs of the economy. Cleaning services are something every home needs, and consumer spending in this industry continues to grow every year. As lives become more hectic, the need for home services only becomes more in demand.

Other advantages include:

  • Corporate-managed marketing program that delivers customers to you
  • Extensive support and training every step of the way – from a corporate team who’s actually run successful franchise locations
  • Little to no inventory to manage
  • Recurring revenue from an existing pool of customers
  • Ability to build towards absentee ownership through development of a management infrastructure
  • Scalability and expansion potential

The Cleaning Authority is a tested business model where franchisees on average generate $1.193* million in annual revenue. Success with our franchise is possible because we combine simple business fundamentals with sophisticated systems and a solid support infrastructure to help our house cleaning franchise owners achieve their goals. Over Half of our franchisees hold MBAs—which shows that they recognized the lucrative opportunity that existed with our home cleaning franchise.

New franchisees are thoroughly trained on our Detail-Clean Rotation System so that they can train their staff to have an expert-level understanding of the process.
