How To Start A Carpet, Tile and Grout Cleaning Business


Tom: Should I give up my day job to actually start the carpet cleaning business? Do I just dive in and go for it? What are your recommendations?

Col: Okay, if you’ve got lots of money behind you, you might be able to survive, but typically getting into this industry, it’s going to be the first business for most people entering this industry. It’s a good idea to work your way into it slowly. If you’ve got a job that’s a nine to five job or something like that, maybe start off on the weekends, build your weekends slowly and when you’re so busy on the weekends that you just, you haven’t got any more time, yeah, then may be time to back off on the day job.

Tom: That’s good advice. That’s sound advice. Is it quite hard physical work to clean carpet?

Col: Well there’s not too many fat carpet cleaners.

Tom: Good point.

Col: You can save a lot on gym fees.

Tom: Right but is it really physically strenuous? I mean, how strong do you have to be to do carpet cleaning?

Col: You don’t have to be Arnold Schwarzenegger, no, but as long as you’re reasonably fit or if you’re not fit you soon will be. There’s a lot of running up and down stairs. There’s a lot of physical movement. It’s quite a physical job, but as I say, I never attend a gym and you know, I’m a reasonable size.

Tom: But the average person can actually do that? It’s not like you have to be.

Col: Yeah, male, female, a lot of ladies in the industry these days.

Tom: That’s encouraging. Yeah, okay, so you don’t have to be a really strong guy to do it.

Col: No, there’s, I mean, you don’t have to lift big, heavy furniture. Some furniture’s just going to stay there. Even a furniture removalist won’t move a cabinet that’s chock a block full of crystal, so why should we?

Tom: No, good point. Good point.
