When in the market for a carpet cleaning services franchise, there are many to choose from. In fact, as the American carpet cleaning industry continues to grow, so do the opportunities for owning a carpet cleaning franchise. The question is how do you choose which one is right for you?
The carpet cleaning industry as a whole generates more than $10 Billion in revenue annually. Of the 40,000+ companies that comprise this market, none of them have a large portion of market share.The top nine carpet cleaning franchise companies combined only make up 24% of the market, making the market ripe for opportunities.
With the growing trend of green cleaning, it’s important for cleaning services to incorporate green methods into their business. In the carpet cleaning franchise industry, few have the eco-friendly business designation from the Green Business Bureau, but Zerorez® is one of them.
Zerorez® has also worked hard to achieve certification from the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) which provides credibility in our industry. To be awarded this certification, each franchise must demonstrate they are able to meet high standards in their cleaning practices.
Another widely recognized certification in the carpet cleaning industry is through Woolsafe; an organization dedicated to safety of carpet cleaning chemicals for both consumers and professionals. If a carpet cleaning franchise has this certification, you can rest assured their process is safe for use on wool.
Finally, the Carpet and Rug Institute Seal of Approval helps consumers find a carpet cleaning company that cleans carpet right the first time without the fear of getting dirty faster or damage to the carpet.
The traditional method of cleaning carpets has been used for over 70 years. Most companies will spray the carpet with a detergent or soap, and then use a hot water extraction method to pull both the dirt and the detergent back out. The problem with this method is that a larger percentage of the detergent is left in the carpet fibers and it then attracts more dirt, making the carpets appear dirtier faster. If you are used to tradition, then this may be the cleaning method for you.
Zerorez® has developed a cleaning method that is changing the carpet industry by cleaning without the use of harsh or toxic chemicals, and not leaving any soil attracting residue behind. Because we are not soaking your carpet, dry times are faster, and the carpet is left cleaner from the bottom of the fibers all the way up.
