Adding rug cleaning to your arsenal of services can equal big profit. Whether your doing on-site rug cleaning or taking them to your custom rug cleaning facility, the fact is that as in-home trends turn more and more to hard surface flooring, homeowners cover those surfaces with rugs. No one wants to have to call a ton of different companies out to their home to take care of cleaning that could be done by one multi-faceted company. That means huge opportunities for more business, if you have the skills to do the job!
