Canva offers a logo editor that is in part similar to the one provided by DesignEvo, but it has more functionalities and capabilities. Canva is an online design editor that you can use to design pretty much anything, cleaning logos included 😉. Optimized for today’s needs toward marketing materials, Canva offers a wide selection of formats, photos, elements, and even music and video clips that you can use in the digital world.
To use this tool you have to sign up first (don’t worry, you can also do it using your Facebook or Google account) and then search for the type of material you want to create, in our case “logo” or “cleaning logo”. Unfortunately, you won’t be provided with industry-specific logo ideas, you will have to choose a format that you like and then proceed to edit it according to your needs and imagination.
Pros: Robust tool that provides you with a lot of possibilities. Unlimited designs and custom dimensions – al for free. Different download and sharing options are also included in the free version.

The first step is to enter your cleaning company name. The second one is to choose one logo idea and then edit it. Before choosing a cleaning logo idea you can also sort the whole list based on the type of logo (Symbol Logos, Alphabet Logos or Text Logos)
Logo source LogoDesign.net
Pros: Good selection of decent logo ideas. Ability to browse for different keywords.
Cons: No multi-object selection in the editor. This is a big limitation when you have more objects that you want to center or position somehow on the page. A limited number of objects to add in the editor.

6. Airtasker (Bonus)
Airtasker is a trusted community platform that connects people who need to outsource tasks and find local services, with people who are looking to earn money and ready to work. From simple to complicated tasks, Airtasker can help you complete your home cleaning, handyman jobs, admin work, photography, graphic design or even build a website.
But, if you have the money and a growing business, I recommend you should try a real design agency. Or better, a branding agency. Yes, there is also this option. In fact, I think it’s the best option, but I also understand the concept of frugality and I agree with it to some extent. A designer or a branding agency can be pricey, but the quality of the output is in most cases highly superior to all the above options. I don’t only talk here about the quality of the actual graphic materials that you get, but actually more about the value of the entire process.
But hey, what it matters now is to get things going! So choose the option that fits your needs and your budget and roll with it. If you’ve got the skills and the work ethic, you will turn your cleaning company into a renowned brand. I hope you do it!
