I have very little competition in my county, this is my 2nd year after taking over my stepdads company. I ran my own slightly larger carpet cleaning company in a different state for 5 year.

This month, im only doing like 5k. Its usually 15-20k for may. Wtf is happening!!! I feel like it is mostly due to the virus, somehow.

seen it many times over the years. Things get slow and you gotta blame something. I hear ya, but it aint the virus
I mean, the reaction to this virus is basically the biggest thing ever seen in modern human history. It has DEFINITELY had an effect, and inflation is soaring. 2x4s cost almost 10 bucks locally. I have stayed SWAMPED with too much business for 6 years straight, and it has suddenly com to a screeching hault. Something is amiss. And its not due to anything that ive done. The only thing ive changed this year is improvements to branding and upgraded equipment. This stupid "pandemic" is going to have lasting financial implications that many people dont even realize yet.

Prob a little the virus and a little the current administration everything has quadrupled in price and people are afraid to let go of their disposable income, long as you have some cash in reserves to weather the storm it should bounce back brother,

Are you doing any advertising? If you are in small area Facebook works incredibly well. Dial in on your target audience. This last year has been our busiest ever to the point I can’t keep up, even times that are normally slow have stayed busy. A lot of it is coming from my Facebook ads.

Alright so, just an update, I am now EXTREMELY busy. Went on vacation 2 weeks ago, the calls started pouring in and haven't stopped. A little bit repeat customers, and a little bit FB advertising. This is the first time I have advertised in several years, and never have before on google or FB. But wow, it really really works.

Any tips on what you do on Facebook that is successful? I haven't found it do much if anything
