Could be exactly what you describe. How long are you letting it sit between uses?
By "cleaning" of the carb what was your process?
When was the last valve adjustment done or has it been done? If you don't know then they should be checked. Valves too tight = hard starting. I'm guessing that is your problem.
And lastly - Welcome to the Forum. Please post a little about yourself in the Introduction area.
