You can start your own cleaning business in several ways.
Consider carefully which way to go.  

Consider few questions to make the 
right decision that will get you on the right tract and stay with it to be
successful with your venture.

What do I need to get it started?
Do some research. If you know anyone who is in the business,
ask them for some suggestions.
If you want to get a business name and register with 
Department of Commerce.
Get a business card made.
Get a GE Tax License (for State of Hawaii), other States-
check to find out what you need to do.
Get a business phone or your cell phone number will do.
Get a flyer made for your service to distribute to promote
your business.
Open a business checking account (optional).
Wait until you get a customer first and see if you need to 
get Liability Insurance for your business.
Go to local janitorial supply company and see what they can
to for you when you start the cleaning business.
You don't want spend any large money to start?
You can start small and slowly expand your business.
You only need basic tools and cleaning solution to start
with residential cleaning.  

You may add commercial
business cleaning later as your business grows.

Residential cleaning usually does not require insurance,
certification, etc. to start your business.

Window cleaning business does not require insurance or 
certification to start, if you clean windows
for small businesses.

You can start part time and keep your full time work.
It requires very little funds to start. Basic tools and cleaning 
solutions are all you need to get you going.

To get you own customers, spread the word around that now 
your are doing part time cleaning business and 
ask if anyone could use your service.

Make a brochure and do some personal canvassing
when you have some extra time.
Stop by the well to do neighbors and drop off brochures
at their doors.
(Make sure to note: " Free Estimates")

This avenue will take you a long time to get you enough 
customers to keep you busy.

contractors in the phone book and let them know
that you just started a small janitorial service 
company and you are willing to work with them
as a sub contractor. (You might need a liability 
insurance for your company to do this).
Let them know, what you can do and what you cannot

As you are new in the business, you might
not be able to do many of the services that they
might require that you do.

be worked out.

cleaning tools and equipment based on your

the funds to invest, this is another option to consider.
Check out all the details as much as you can, talk to people
who are already doing it to see, how they like it
and find out if it is something that you really want
to do for many years.
This route needs your commitment, because of
your large investment.
