Diversify Your Revenue Streams

How can I create more revenue for my company? This is the age-old question that has been asked since business was born. Seeking out new goods or services to increase sales should be on the minds of every owner or manager. For the carpet cleaning industry, we offer up services on upholstery or drapery cleaning as our first new revenue segment because those items fit within our core business of fabric cleaning. We simply needed a slightly different tool to use our main equipment to generate more income from our existing customer base. But what if you want real, tangible growth? How to Make More Money in Your Carpet Cleaning Business

Adding Hard Surface Services

Tile and grout can be an intimidating segment to tackle. The different surfaces, glass coating, and concrete filler (grout) behave differently when they encounter water from the cleaning process. The low-lying area (grout) presents multiple soil types and does not release soils in the same manner as carpet. This makes tile and grout cleaning a bit of a learning curve if you have not been certified or do not have extensive experience with these types of products. How to Make More Money in Your Carpet Cleaning Business
