It's no secret that carpet has been losing market share for the past ten years. But, from a carpet cleaner's perspective, the market for our services is good because the carpet industry has been pumping out billions of square feet of product every year during those years. The average life of carpet is eight years and many residential carpets we work on are twice that age.
Meanwhile, residential area rugs and the commercial markets are continuing to grow. There are hundreds of millions of square feet of carpet out there just waiting to be cleaned. Our ace in the hole is the fact that we can clean hard floors, rugs, wall coverings and furniture too! The future of the cleaning industry is bright for those who are flexible and stay informed.
