The Cleaning Industry in 2012
2012 Q1 is coming to a close and we want to share with you what other cleaning companies are experiencing around the country! Through a recent survey of 1000+ cleaning companies, this is what 2012 is looking like:

Q: How's Business YTD compared to Last Year This time?
A: Overall the response was very positive with numbers like 10%+, 15%+ and a few that said 20%. Overall every respondent was experiencing some form of growth in 2012 compared to 2011.

Q: What Marketing Medium is Driving Your Estimates YTD?
Many different answers though the top 4 in order are: Direct Mail, Google & Internet leads, Social (Pinterest, Facebook, Blog), Referrals (funny, not one respondent answered Yellow Pages, how times have changed!)

Q: What's your #1 Employee Issue YTD?
Difficulty attracting new employees compared to 2011 is number one, followed by tardiness, retention and trust.

Q: What's 1 thing different in your business in 2012 compared to 2011?
Revenue is the number one answer, by far, with more estimates and less stress over the economy answered a few times.

Q: How do you feel about your Business in 2012 compared to 2011?
Overwhelmingly the response is Positive and Outlook bullish!

Q: What's your favorite:
1. Upright Vacuum-
Proteam, Oreck, Hoover, Sanitaire and many other individual votes

2. Canister Vacuum-
Hoover Portapower and Proteam. Hoover Portapower remains the top choices, though a few commented that the quality has reduced recently and once a comparable is available they'll switch.

3. Bathroom Cleaner-
Unfortunately, no one common cleaner is prevalent.

4. Floor Cleaner-
Vinegar & Water, Mr. Clean Concentrate, Ajax Floor Cleaner and many other names. Again, no clear leaders.

5. All-Purpose Cleaner-
Top 3 are Fabuloso, Simple Green and Mr. Clean.

6. Must Have Cleaning Product-
Microfiber towels & Magic Eraser.
