Start Carpet Cleaning Business

How do I start a carpet cleaning business is a question we are often asked.

There are countless households and businesses in this country who have fitted expensive carpets which need regular cleaning to extend carpet life and protect their investment.  Nowadays carpet cleaning is regarded as a necessity rather than a luxury due to owners concerns about dangerous dirt and contaminates building up in their carpets caused by everyday foot traffic and pets.  In short, carpets can be a breeding ground for nasty bacteria and a source of bad odour in the household.

This makes the carpet cleaning sector extremely resilient to economic down-turns because owners are keenly aware that regular cleaning and maintenance helps keep carpet fibres healthy and attractive, thus providing peace of mind that they are living and working in a clean and healthy environment. This is particularly relevant when the occupants have small children or suffer from allergies - for example they are allergic to dust.
