What Are the Benefits Of A Franchising Business

Starting and managing a business has never been this easy, thanks to franchising.

The franchising industry has opened doors for success to thousands of aspiring entrepreneurs who wish to open their own businesses. Although owning a franchise does not guarantee absolute success there are however a number of advantages to owning a franchise instead of building a business from scratch.

It is important for all entrepreneurs who are contemplating starting their own business to know the benefits of a franchising business.

  1. You Get Product Recognition

If you choose a franchise all the possible marketing tactics have already been done for you. All the products and/or services that the business has to offer to consumers may have already been marketed locally, nationally and even internationally, which means you do not have to work as hard to make your brand known. Your franchisors have already covered that. When you get into a franchising business you are actually buying your rights to sell their product or service with which a lot of people may have already heard of.

  1. You Get Tons Of Help In The Marketing Department

Every business needs customers for it to survive. The question is how can you get customers? Acquiring customers takes a great deal of time, effort and consideration and it involves employing smart, unique and attention-grabbing marketing strategies. If you are a franchisee you can definitely benefit from your franchisor’s already established and time-tested marketing programs. With marketing and advertising campaigns done for you by your parent company, all you need to do is to focus on implementing them into your local area. Your full concentration will be focused on operations instead of thinking of ways to market your business.

  1. You Get A Local Marketing Area Or Territory

Your franchisor will always make sure that you will get a pre-determined territory or local marketing area because it is also part of their vision to help you succeed in the area where you will be opening your business. Ensuring that you establish your business in a region where you do not have to compete with another franchise of the same company helps you make more money for your business.

  1. Guaranteed Support

Franchisees are always guaranteed support in many aspects of the business including a help centre for questions regarding business management, help in finding marketing materials and supplies and also training. This guarantee will help lift a burden off of your shoulders.

  1. You Get Access To Affordable Supplies

Anyone who starts their own business would spend a huge amount of time canvassing suppliers to find out which among them offers the best deals. When you choose to buy a franchise, your franchisor will give you access to their suppliers with prices that work in your favor so you can maximize your business’ profit.

How Often Should You Have Your Airconditioners Cleaned and Sanitised?

When Is The Best Time To Have Your Airconditoner Cleaned and Sanitised?

How do you keep yourself comfortable when the humidity climbs up especially during the summer? We doubt you could stand the heat and we highly doubt that you could spend even just a minute or two manually fanning yourself without numbing your hands. The obvious answer is air conditioning. The moment technology took over everyone has had the privilege to conveniently enjoy cool air through air conditioners.

Today, everywhere you go you’ll find air conditioners which only proves that humans have become dependent on air conditioners to make their lives more comfortable especially during the stifling heat of summer.

Why Do You Need To Clean and Sanitise Your Air Conditioner?

Like every piece of equipment in your home, your ACs also need some TLC. Why is there a need to service your air conditioner?

  1. Having your AC serviced ensures that it functions properly and efficiently.
  2. Having your AC serviced improves its efficiency. Studies show that if you fail to service your air conditioner it will lose efficiency.
  3. Having your AC regularly serviced allows you to address any minor problems because if you fail to deal with these minor problems it could grow bigger making it harder and not to mention more expensive to repair.

If you haven’t serviced your air conditioner in a while, don’t worry! Research says that if you just regularly clean and sanitise your air conditioner it’s not too late and 95% of its efficiency will be restored! This brings us to question….

When Is The Best Time To Have Your Airconditoner Cleaned and Sanitised?

Experts in air conditioning advises that even if there is nothing wrong with your air conditioning unit you still need to have it serviced at least once every 12 months to make sure that your air conditioner is working at its peak efficiency during the season when you need it the most.

Overtime, air conditioners harbor dust and dirt especially in critical areas such as the coil and air filters. If you don’t do something about it, it can adversely affect your air conditioner’s efficiency in providing your home with cool air.

At HydroKleen we specialise in cleaning and servicing air conditioners to remove organisms such as bacteria, fungi, mould and mildew that can make you and your family sick.  Our comprehensive air conditioner clean and santise will make sure that the air you breathe is fresh and clean to reduce the probability of sickness caused by organisms trapped in your ACs.

Asthmatic? HydroKleen Can Help Stop Asthma Triggers

Mould in your air conditioning unit can trigger an asthma attack.

Do you know what it’s like to have asthma? For asthmatics, whenever an asthma attack takes place they feel like they are literally about to die because no matter how many lungsful of air they breathe in they still couldn’t get enough oxygen into their lungs to make them feel okay. Normally people breathe effortlessly making them unaware of their breathing pattern but for asthmatics it’s different. People with asthma are consciously aware of their breathing.

What Is Asthma?

Asthma is a chronic and incurable lung condition where the airways are narrowed and inflamed. Individuals who suffer from asthma often experience shortness of breath, coughing, chest tightness and wheezing. Usually the coughing takes place at night or early morning. Asthma can affect anyone both young and old but most of the time it manifests during childhood.

What Can Trigger An Asthma Attack?

There are several substances that can trigger an asthma attack. Examples are the following:

  • Pet dander
  • Cockroach
  • Molds

If you are asthmatic it is best that you avoid at all cost or if not at least limit your contact with any of these allergens to stop an attack from commencing. Getting rid of pet dander is easy, keep your pets outside your house or ask somebody else to take care of them if you are asthmatic. Your best option is to not have fury pets at all. For cockroaches, all you need to do is to make sure that your house is clean and spray pesticides every once in a while to keep cockroaches at bay. As for mold, you need to have your air conditioning units cleaned and serviced regularly since ACs are known to harbor moulds.

How Can HydroKleen Stop An Asthma Trigger?

HydroKleen specialises in cleaning and sanitising all kinds of air conditioning units such as split systems, ceiling cassette units, ducted units and window units. After our HydroKleen technician service your air conditioners you can be sure that you are breathing in fresh and healthy air reducing your chances of getting an asthma attack since we make sure that all dust particles and mould are completely removed from your AC unit.

Let HydroKleen be your partner in health especially if you are asthmatic.

As of the 1st of January 2016 HydroKleen Australia is proud to announce that we have now gained exclusivity as a part of this program.  This was no easy feat, as we had to clearly demonstrate all of the processes and cleaning agents that we use in order to get the tick from the product advisory panel.

A franchise business offers a tested system that will enable you to launch, run and grow your business. Ideally franchisors come up with comprehensive manuals and training guides for their franchisees that cover a wide gamut of areas such as accounting, marketing, technology, operations and many more.
