Carpet cleaning is a simple and profitable business.

I want to tell you about the idea of ​​a business that requires minimal investment and a short payback period. This business is "Carpet Cleaning"

Carpet cleaning is a very promising business . Unlike the west, where this niche is completely occupied, in Russia the market of cleaning services, including a separate direction "carpet cleaning", is at the stage of formation. Demand for this type of service is huge, because according to the recommendations of experts, carpets should be cleaned at least 2 times a year, and carpeting in rooms with large cross-country traffic is at least 1-2 times a month. Rarely in what apartment there is not even one carpet. In office premises too often instead of linoleum and a laminate the carpet covering is used.

What service do customers receive when they call on carpet cleaning specialists? Most often a wet carpet and a bad mood, although a woman of retirement age with "vanish" and "brush-ironing" in her hands (this is the stereotype about specialists in Russia) tries to convince them that the cleaning is done well and the carpet is now clean. Yes, it may be that in some places the carpet has become cleaner, but I assure you that after such cleaning it will be polluted several times faster than before. There are other "experts" who call themselves cleaning companies and come to the customer with a household washing vacuum cleaner for 5000 rubles.

Cleaning of carpets in our country is not subject to mandatory certification, which is actively used by "pseudo-professionals", while earning good money.

You can develop this business direction in different ways.

The first way is cleaning out carpets and carpets at home with a professional extractor.

The second way is working with shopping centers, offices and shops.

The difference between the first two methods in cleaning equipment and the form of ownership. (Carpet cleaning at home requires not bulky equipment with a low noise level, and for working with organizations where carpets can reach 1000 and 5000 square meters, equipment with high productivity is needed. As for the form of ownership ... For service it is enough to register an individual entrepreneur, and to work with legal entities it is better to register an LLC).

The third way - the organization of the workshop for cleaning carpets. The advantage of this method is that for a day in the shop you can clean up to 10-20 carpets, and at home no more than 5. This is due to the fact that very long time costs for the delivery of equipment from your warehouse or home to the customer's house, time for lifting equipment to the floor, unwinding all cords, connecting hoses, etc. (By the way, nothing prevents you when you order an exit cleaning carpets to break from the shop and serve the customer). The advantages of the third method are obvious.

Compared with other types of business, the business of cleaning carpets at the initial stage requires minimal investment. In the case of the opening of exit cleaning can be limited to 10,000-15,000 tr. In this case, the mechanical impact will have to be carried out manually (with the accumulation of some money, you can also purchase a rotary machine). For the organization of exit cleaning of carpets this is quite enough. The main thing is the availability of a quality extractor.

In general, the main thing is to start and strive for further development. In the process of development, you can buy a carpet washing machine for large areas and open a workshop for the stationary cleaning of carpets. My company began its own development in this way. With the purchase of a washing vacuum cleaner and sticking ads. At first there were 2-3 orders a day, but a few months later the word-of-mouth was earned and soon we could not keep up with all customers. Then we bought another set of equipment (by the way, more perfect than the first) and recruited two cleaning operators. It went even more fun. We bought another machine for deliveries, opened a shop for cleaning. Now we are the leaders in our region in cleaning carpets. Are there any competitors? Yes, there are, but there is enough work for everyone. Positive feedback is very much, and positive feedback - this is the best advertising engine.
