Do you live in an area where winter brings your business to a grinding halt? If you plan ahead, the winter months can be very productive even if you can’t wash like normal. Adding winter work services that are weather or season related can help supplement your income during your washing off season. Here are a few ideas of other business offerings to keep the cash flowing when the weather gets frigid.
Winter Work for the Off Season
Services power wash professionals turn to include, window washing, carpet cleaning and indoor painting to keep out of the cold. If you don’t mind working in harsher weather, yard maintenance and cleanup, gutter cleaning, new construction cleaning up and even hanging holiday lights for commercial and residential clients can keep you busy during your downtime. It is even possible to wash and detail vehicles indoors, but make sure you have garage keeper’s coverage if you will be moving your customer’s vehicles.
