Carpet Cleaning Franchises

There are essentially two markets for carpet cleaning franchises—residential and commercial. As a speciality service, carpet cleaning is more resistant to economic downturns than more traditional cleaning services, particularly those that cater only to the residential market. Professional carpet cleaning can actually save consumers money, by returning carpet to its original appearance for less than the cost of replacing the carpet, making this franchise opportunity appealing to anyone wanting an easy way to freshen the appearance of their homes or businesses.
