by Guest on Aug 31, 2013

Carpet Cleaning business is the business where you would be the sole proprietor of your own business. For a successful business, we require a willing buyer and a salable product. The only information required is about the information about the product you are having, the strength to remove stains and the strength of its equipment. There is no prior experience or education is required.

There are three main types of carpet cleaning :

  1. Dry Foam Carpet Cleaning
  2. Liquid Extraction Carpet Cleaning
  3. Hybrid Liquid Extraction using a bonnet to scrub the floors.

If you are starting your business then it is to better opt for extracting liquid because it is cheap compared to others. Even though you would be requiring a capital before starting a business because it is an equipment based business.

There are multiple types of equipment available in the market. So to get one you would require to visit a local supplier or you have to visit someone who distributes equipment for janitorial work. You can also visit websites online to get information regarding it.

There are various units available like carpet spotters, portable carpet extractors and truck mount carpet extractors. If your client is having an area that is small and nonflat then you can opt for carpet spotters like boats, cars, and furniture. They are used for removing carpet stains and spills which are easier as they are light.

To expand your business you can tell your clients about mobile detailing services that you offer. This marketing strategy will help you to get more money because clients are keen to get this mobile detailing service.

As you would be in the starting stage of your business then you can look for portable extractors and carpet cleaning supplies. There are two types of portable carpet extractors: tank unit, wand unit, and portable walk behind. If the number of carpets is more to clean then you can use it. And if you require a versatile extractor then just attach a wand to it. They also come with heaters that allow you to heat the solution. They are in the range $1200 - $7000 new with various options.

If you have a huge capital then you can opt for truck mount carpets. They are mounted on trucks, van or trailer. They are self-contained extractors that are they store the waste as well as the solution inside them. The price of this equipment varies from $10000 - $60000, but for a new business, you can opt for a used truck.

If you have all the basic equipment like cleaners, chemicals, and supplies then it is time to get insured. When you would be hired by someone to clean their place they will first ask you the proof about your insurance and bond for their protection.

The most effective way to get clients is through networking. Clean your friends or relative place free or at a discounted rate. Tell them to spread the word regarding the carpet cleaning endeavors you have. Advertising in the local newspaper would be cheap because it targets the small community.
