Tile & Stone Services Are Strong Add-Ons for Chem-Dry Franchise Owners
Whole-home array of cleaning services creates opportunity for every estimate, and results in higher ticket totals, happier customers and solid revenue
Many new homes, and even commercial spaces, are being built with high-end granite countertops and quality tile flooring. All those surfaces need cleaning, and that makes them good add-ons for Chem-Dry floor cleaning franchise owners who are looking to boost ticket totals.
“Our granite renewal and tile floor cleaning services are very popular with customers and franchise owners alike,” says Doug Smith, Senior Vice President of Franchise Development. “Consumers like the convenience of having a single vendor for multiple needs in their home or office, and franchise owners like being able to easily generate more business on a single visit.”
Bid for one job, add a second quickly
New and even current customers may not be aware of granite renewal, tile cleaning and other non-flooring services that a Chem-Dry carpet cleaning franchise offers. From area rug and upholstery cleaning, Chem-Dry can take care of the whole home.
“Chem-Dry floor cleaning franchise owners and their tech teams always point out these additional offerings when they are on a job, and often get asked if they can do that work the same day,” Smith says. “The answer usually is yes, and that’s good news all around.”
Multiple service lines build repeat visits
And because of that flexibility, coupled with cleaning that covers almost every room in the home, Chem-Dry floor cleaning franchise customers are very loyal — and frequent.
“Customers may only get carpets done twice a year, in the spring ahead of summer foot traffic and again the fall, ahead of holiday parties and gatherings,” Smith says. “But they have more frequent needs around tile and wood floors, upholstery, granite, even leather. And when they have a trusted partner in Chem-Dry, they don’t hesitate to book services throughout the year.”
