Just how big is the market for carpet cleaning services? Considering the countless number of homes and businesses that have carpeting throughout them, there are literally billions of square feet of carpet in the United States. According to the Carpet and Rug Institute (As of 2007), the U.S. carpet Industry ships 14.4 billion square feet of carpeting a year while the demand continues to grow.

Owning a Modernistic franchise makes sense for many reasons. One of them is that Modernistic franchisees provide a variety of services in two expansive and growing industries – commercial and residential carpet and upholstery cleaning. We have Modernistic franchise territories available in 37 states across the Country.

Furthermore, Markdata Enterprises Inc. reports that the carpet and upholstery cleaning business itself has become a $3 to $5 billion industry.

Today’s carpet cleaning industry is comprised of various small businesses taking care of a lot of carpet cleaning. By becoming associated with the Modernistic network and brand, entrepreneurs enter the carpet cleaning business with a distinct advantage over the competition.

History, Background and Experience

Modernistic’s humble beginnings date back to 1973. Back then, this newly founded carpet and upholstery cleaning business operated out of a modest two- car garage. Following a disciplined process, which focuses on total customer satisfaction, Modernistic has become one of the largest independent carpet and upholstery cleaning businesses in the entire country.

Modernistic’s growth and enviable reputation may be credited to 30+ years of valuable experience and knowledge, a proven cleaning process, and loyal employees with a philosophy of doing things “right” the first time. In addition to a remarkable number of repeat residential customers, Modernistic is doing work for some of Michigan’s largest corporations. Through Modernistic’s goals and high expectations, growth and success will remain constant.

“The real challenge is to bridge the gap which exists between where you are now and where you want to be.Modernistic has changed my life for the better ten times over. Since becoming the very first franchise, 25 years ago, my business has grown to be one of the largest independent carpet and upholstery cleaning companies in the country, and my goal is to keep growing. Thank you, Modernistic, for the opportunity of a lifetime.”
