Carpet Cleaning and Tile and Grout Cleaning are both very lucrative areas within the greater cleaning industry. Owning and operating your own cleaning business can also be very rewarding and exciting. Compared to some businesses where you need a lease a shop front, within the carpet cleaning and tile and grout cleaning industry, our start up cost is lower because we only need a presentable vehicle, van or trailer to cart our equipment around in. Professional carpet and tile cleaners offer their clients in home cleaning that comprises of detailing everything from the upholstery, carpets and tile and grout inside their house, through to doing the upholstery cleaning in their vehicles, external tile and grout cleaning, external house pressure washing, cleaning the driveway and pool surrounds and pathways with the clean and capture technique. Floor coverings (especially hard surfaces) can be expensive and their owners are keeping them longer. Cosmetic maintenance is more important today than it has ever been in the past, as for many people, it is much cheaper to look after their existing floor coverings, than replacing them.
When starting a Carpet and/or Tile cleaning business, there are many things to consider. One of the first decisions that you need to make is what part of the marketplace you will be trying to set up your business in. By this, we mean there are some cleaners that focus completely on the rental/ bond cleans. There are other cleaners that focus on medium income families. Other cleaners solely chase upper class residential and commercial clients. Yet other cleaners will build their entire business around specialty fields such as rug cleaning, grout recolouring or flood damage restoration. This can be a tough decision for some, but thorough research will show you the advantages and disadvantages of each of these individual avenues. Our staff are also a great reference point as well, and can assist you with any information your may require.
One advantage of operating a carpet cleaning and/or tile and grout cleaning business is that you can go anywhere to conduct business and easily take your equipment on the road - your business can expand as far as you feel comfortable in travelling. Advertising costs are usually less than other business because your van/truck/trailer (when nicely vinyl wrapped) is "rolling advertisement" everywhere you go. There is also plenty of room for growth because you can always put a second unit on the road when it’s time to expand.
