The Winds of Change
When everything locked down in 2020, many businesses suffered. Some had to close their doors for good due to loss of revenue or repeated closures as a result of rising COVID infections. The professional cleaning industry was also affected. Research companies report a more than 7% decline of revenue in 2020 due to business closures. That is a significant drop.
With so many businesses closed to the public, the perceived need for carpet cleaning in professional buildings declined. Residential cleaning, however, generally stayed strong. More people were at home and many of them wanted to make sure their homes stayed clean and COVID-free. Professional cleaning services like Preferred Carpet Care in Redding help sanitize your home or business with hot water extraction, destroying microorganisms, germs, bacteria, and even viruses while thoroughly removing dirt and debris from your carpet. So that part of the business still saw some demand.
Vaccinations Open the Way
Thankfully, pharmaceutical companies gave California a metaphorical and literal shot in the arm by producing coronavirus vaccines. Restrictions in many cities and counties are gradually being eased or completely lifted. As a result, businesses are opening and hiring more staff to assist customers as people once again visit in person instead of just ordering online. But many of these facilities — perhaps even yours — have been closed in whole or in part for nearly a year. They might need a little more effort to look presentable than just a routine cleaning.
Therefore, what we expect to see in the coming months is a “change in wind direction.” Homes in Redding will continue to make sure their carpets are clean and fresh. Businesses, however, will want to prepare their establishments for an influx of customers. It’s time to ensure their offices, waiting rooms, show floors, and other areas are properly disinfected, sanitized and presentable for their patrons. Preferred Carpet Care is more than happy to help your business look its best with a professional cleaning. We offer extensive, thorough carpet cleaning, alongside tile and grout cleaning for bathrooms or kitchens, upholstery cleaning for chairs and sofas, area rug cleanings, and even interior cleanings for business vehicles.
Of course, here at Preferred Carpet Care we only have a limited number of appointments in the day to help Redding businesses look their best. Even now, our late spring and summer schedule is filling up. That’s why we recommend giving us a call at your earliest convenience. Discuss what your needs are based on what kind of carpet, rugs, tiles or seating you have in your facility. We can often do the cleaning after hours to avoid disrupting your business. You can also use the form here on our website to schedule a consultation.
A change in direction doesn’t bother us after the strange year we’ve endured with the pandemic. We’re glad to use our extensive training, skills, and powerful equipment to make sure your business looks its best for your customers! We want to be a part of bringing Redding back to business as usual!
