Who all is in Houston? After 11 years in El Paso with the business I know I should be much farther along than I am and we are considering relocating. Since my wife has family in Houston it is on the top of the list to consider. I am looking for some feedback on how the market is there. I know you might be thinking "Great all we need is another cleaner here" but I am a good guy and not a hack, I promise :)

Jason, I’m not in the Houston area but I believe being a well populated area you wouldn’t have any issues in growing your business. You’ve been established and know what it takes to succeed. Good luck my friend.

You will see a lot of those yard signs that say "Carpet cleaning $12 per room". Other than that there are many growing communities right outside of Houston. Where about's will you be looking?

My wife has family in Baytown, I am sure she would want to be close.

I did, I just wish he was born somewhere, anywhere other then Houston... He didnt live to see his 19th birthday because some gang banger wanted to prove he was a gangster by killing somebody.

I believe @jtsunbrite is in Houston :)

I've only passed through Houston a few times, mostly on trips across the country and back when I was young and foolish (dry-camping through Alaska isn't for the faint-hearted, lol). I always found it lovely. Then again, that's been several decades ago, so I am guessing the demographics have changed considerably since I was there.

El Paso is tough, average carpet cleaning price is $20/room. There are just so many guys happy to be there own boss making minimum wage keeping the prices low with low quality. Unfortunately customers seem ok with the low quality as long as the price is cheap. We are the highest rated company with over 180 Google reviews but it mostly only brings in price shoppers.

Keep us posted on what you are going to do. There is a lot of work to be had between where I live and Houston. We can definitely help each other out.
Definitely will do, my wife has been out of town ths last 10 days so we need to talk about it more when she comes back. She keeps making comments like we are moving soon but there is a lot to talk about since I have the business, we have a 8 year old, a soon to be 25 year old still living at home but going to school. Plus we have our house here and my 2 older kids with my ex live here in El Paso and my 20 year old works for me.
