Carpet and Upholstery Cleaning

Carpet and Upholstery Cleaning

Rising employment levels have resulted in stronger growth for carpet and upholstery cleaning revenues after a decade of sluggish gains. Growth was adversely affected by carpet’s declining share of floor coverings installations in residential markets. As a result, carpet cleaning services increased their reliance on commercial markets. Carpets cleaning services also diversified their service offerings to boost growth, and now rely more heavily on commercial cleaning, restoration cleaning, and hard surface flooring cleaning.

These and other industry trends are uncovered in this up-to-date Catalina First Look on Carpet and Upholstery Cleaning. This First Look also provides data on service line revenues, residential versus commercial markets, factors driving demand, and the competitive environment.
