Homes are no longer just homes. They are also offices, schools, gyms and a range of other facilities we used to venture out for. That shift has proven to create big business for the cleaning segment, which is well-represented in franchising.

If you’re looking to get in on a piece of the growing industry, here are five of our favorite home-cleaing franchises.
