Having a clean and tidy home is essential to create a healthy and inviting environment, and as more and more UK households are prioritising high standards of cleanliness in their homes, the demand for domestic cleaning services has skyrocketed. If your business is struggling to meet the ongoing demand, or if you are keen to grow your business in 2024, then meeting your clients' needs is easier than ever, thanks to the DCA. Whether you offer regular cleaning, deep cleaning, or specialist services such as carpet cleaning or window cleaning, we have got you covered with a range of training, support, and administrative services to support and grow your business.

The Domestic Cleaning Industry in 2024 

As the demand for household cleaning continues to rise throughout 2024, it is important to understand the current state of the industry, as it remains largely unregulated. This means that there are no specific licensing or certification requirements for individuals or businesses to offer their services, and while this lack of regulation provides a low barrier to entry for new businesses, it also means that there is a wide range of service quality and professionalism within the industry. 

To meet your clients' needs, and to stand out from the unregulated and underperforming competition, there are several key factors to prioritise. The first is delivering exceptional services to meet your clients expectations and garner positive reviews - and the second is to secure DCA membership. By joining the DCA, you gain access to a network of like-minded professionals who are committed to maintaining high standards of excellence, alongside a range of resources and advice channels that ensure your business receives the ongoing training and support needed to excel.
