What is a Smart Carpet Cleaning franchise?
Smart Carpet Cleaning is ready to redefine how carpet cleaning is done. Founded by Robert Valois over two decades ago, Smart Carpet Cleaning has been quietly building into the most disruptive carpet cleaning franchise the industry has ever seen. Step one was to develop a deep cleaning process that solved the wet issues associated with traditional steam cleaning. This was achieved by using 90% less water. Step two was to have a business model that reduces business costs and radically improves productivity so that pricing could allow markets to be taken quickly. Smart Carpet Cleaning has achieved this and is ready to rapidly expand across the United States.
What makes Smart Carpet Cleaning so disruptive?
The industry is dominated by brands that use dual systems – a steam cleaning (hot water extraction) primary deep cleaning method and a secondary system that is less wet, such as encapsulation or a shampoo spin bonnet method. The primary system is deep cleaning but when done correctly requires too much labor, water, and time in order to meet market price points. Therefore brands that use this method cut corners in order to keep costs down, resulting in long dry times and often delivering a poor end result to an unwitting customer. The secondary system is used when customers don’t want a long drying wet process and want reasonable costs. These secondary methods fulfill this need but require a primary process, such as steam cleaning, periodically to maintain the carpet. Smart’s one system replaces dual system approaches because it is an adaptive process that can deep clean high-soiled areas when encountered and cleans very rapidly in low-soiled areas.
And our method works. Smart Carpet Cleaning is the only low moisture method that has been Gold Certified for deep cleaning by the Carpet and Rug Institute.
As the word gets out that Smart Carpet Cleaning can deliver on both service and price, we will get an outsized share of the market.
