Starting A Carpet Cleaning Business – (Truck Mounted unit Verses Portable Extraction Unit)

For those of us who have been in the carpet cleaning industry for decades know that it is not the tool, it is the carpenter. There is no difference other than the time it might take between a portable extraction unit and a truck mounted unit in your carpet cleaning business. The decision is based upon you and your personal opinion, but even those who use truck mounted units do at times need portable units and this proves that either is just as good as the other. Either way, starting a carpet cleaning business is still one of the best small businesses to start.

    In the past there were many advantages to using truck mounted equipment. But now you can buy portable units that have up 500psi of water pressure, built in heaters and 3 stage vac motors. You can upgrade portables with bigger pumps, external heaters and external vac boosters. And run them off a gas generator. The key to overcome the perception that truck mounts are better is BE PROFESSIONAL; wear a uniform, preprinted receipts and dedicate a cell phone 2 answer calls 24/7. OH & DO GREAT WORK!

    awesome video! I have been thinking about starting a carpet cleaning business for a few years now. I used to work for a company, and made so much money, and then i started to think…man this guy is taking in serious money every week, and his expenses are minimal!!!

    All the thoughts i’ve had have been true about this business, thanks for the reassurance in this video!! now my question is what method is the best/most profitable??? I want to do the rotary method instead of steam. thoughts?

    I am seriously considering this as a transition business from my existing corporate job – in which I am extremely unhappy and stressed in. I am going to check out some more of your vids. I have been going over the numbers and this does indeed seem relatively low start up for the potential returns. Is my research correct so far? How do you think this would be as a start up in a destressed economy like we are in? I only see it getting worse.

    BTW is that the WORD in your deks?

    If you can afford a truckmount I’d go that route.
    Portables are so much of a hassle, especially when you’re working by yourself.

    Good luck to you.

    I’m going into the carpet cleaning business. I am getting the last of my retirement funds from the federal goverment and start my own business. After working for 24 yrs with the courts and then wrongfully terminated without any recourse of action due to the gov. being immune from suit has gotten me fed up with working for someone.

    Your absolutely right, it’s the carpeter, not the machine. A monkey can run a wand, but it takes effort to clean and do a good job.
