How to Start a Pool Cleaning Business
A pool cleaning and maintenance business can be a great opportunity for a home-based entrepreneur or someone who would like to start a larger pool service business. Start up costs are minimal compared to many other types of businesses. Chemicals and other pool related supplies can be purchased on an as-needed basis, so storage shouldn’t be much of a concern.
