In this article, besides giving you fifteen ideas for catchy and unique cleaning business names, we will take a closer look at the process of naming a business. What goes into selecting a name for a cleaning business? To find a unique name for your cleaning business, you must first grab your audience’s attention. Next, it’s never a bad idea to research other cleaning business names to see what works and what doesn’t work. The name of your cleaning business should not only be unique, but it should be catchy as well. Finally, you should try to find a way to implement buzz words that are associated with cleaning into your business name.
Grab Your Audience’s Attention
The first thing that you want to do when choosing a name for your cleaning business is to grab your audience’s attention. Think about all of the catchy business names you have heard in your lifetime. The reason that these business names are so memorable is that they found a way to grab your attention. if you want to go the extra mile and add a subtitle to your cleaning business name, getting the attention of potential clients is even more important.
According to Janitorial Manager, the most defining characteristic of a business’s name is that it is simple and catches the attention of its targeted audience. You mustn’t get too complicated when choosing a name for your cleaning business. If you think about it, some of the hardest business names to remember are those that were overly complicated. One suggestion for getting your audience’s attention is to incorporate the use of the word “Maid” in the name of your cleaning service.
One piece of advice that I have often heard as it pertains to naming a business is to grab the audience’s attention, and work the details out later. This doesn’t mean that you should choose a name that gets people’s attention, and then change the name later. I believe that what they are referring to in this saying is that the main words of your cleaning business name should be what gets your targeted audience’s attention. This is something you should keep in mind when you are working on a name for your business.
Two examples that exemplify this concept are Busy Bee Cleaning Service and Sweet & Discreet Maid Service.
Research Other Cleaning Business Names
While I would certainly not suggest directly stealing the name of another cleaning business, there’s no crime in researching the names of other cleaning businesses to see what works and what doesn’t work. Of course, if you pay attention, you will find out that the names that usually don’t work very well for cleaning services are those that are overly complicated, long, or simply don’t make sense. It’s important to remember that you don’t have to limit your research to your local area.
If you live in a small town, chances are that there won’t be very many options for cleaning services in your local area. That doesn’t mean that your cleaning business can get away with having a bad name. I would suggest expanding your research to a larger city that has several different options when it comes to cleaning businesses. The bright side is that if you choose a name for your cleaning business that is similar to another business, they probably won’t be close enough to you to notice.
A few examples could include names such as Top to Bottom Cleaning, Deep Clean Office Team, and Maid In (your city’s name).
Choose a Catchy Name
This step is quite possibly the most important step you can take when it comes to choosing a unique name for your cleaning business. This works hand in hand with choosing a name for your cleaning business that grabs your audience’s attention. If your cleaning business’s name is not catching, chances are that it will not grab the attention of potential customers. One idea for choosing a catchy name is to find words that rhyme and incorporate them into your cleaning business’s name.
Of course, you don’t have to find words that rhyme to make a catchy name for your cleaning business. You can also use one of the oldest tricks in the book when it comes to naming a business. That trick is alliteration. If you are not familiar with this concept, alliteration is the practice of using the beginning sound of a word in two or three consecutive words. Another popular trick for making your cleaning business’s name catchy is to incorporate the name of your city or town into your business name.
One final trick that may help you in determining a unique name for your cleaning business is to use words that are often seen as cute in your business name. While this may be a trick that doesn’t necessarily work all the time, it does work some of the time. The only suggestion that I have to offer if you choose to use cute words in your cleaning business name is that you don’t go overboard when using these words. Remember that too much of a good thing can be a bad thing.
Two examples of this are Meticulous Maids and Nooks and Crannies Cleaning Company.

Implement Words That Give an Impression of Being Clean
I have always thought that implementing words that give the customer the impression you would like them to have of your business into your business name is one of the most underrated tactics you can employ when choosing a name for your cleaning business. When your customers think of your business, you want them to associate words that imply cleanliness. What better way to accomplish this than by implementing these words directly into the name of your cleaning business?
A few of the words that you can Implement into the name of your cleaning business that would help your customers associate your business name with cleanliness are words such as Maids, Sweep, Shine, Fresh, and Clean. These words subliminally project the image of cleanliness to your potential customers. Besides, some of these words often work well when used in conjunction with the alliteration technique that I spoke of in the previous section of this article.
One of the keysi to this aspect of choosing a name for your cleaning business is to keep it simple. My community think about your favorite fast food restaurants, and then think of their names. Usually, the name of your favorite fast food restaurant indicates specifically what kind of food is served at said restaurant. For example, you know that Chick-fil-A serves chicken. You also know that Pizza Hut serves pizza. Keep this in mind when choosing a name for your cleaning business.
A couple of examples of this are Fresh Start Office Cleaning and Maid To Order Cleaning Service.
In conclusion, coming up with a unique name for your cleaning business can be the difference between having a successful cleaning business and struggling cleaning business. The name of your business matters much more than you think it does. To find a unique and catchy name for your cleaning service, you must first find something that can grab your audience’s attention. Next, it is never a bad idea to research the names of other cleaning businesses to get an idea of what works and what doesn’t work.
Third, you will want to incorporate something catchy into your cleaning business name that will make it memorable. Finally, find a way to implement words that give an impression of cleanliness into your cleaning business name, because you want your customers to associate your brand with being the best cleaning service around. Once you have found a unique name for your cleaning business that works for you, the only thing that you will have left to do is to sit back and watch your business grow.
