Hello everyone,

I am looking to get into carpet cleaning. I run a small lawn care business during the summer time, but I am in need of a business that I can work all year around. I have some knowledge of advertising, especially using platforms like Facebook, Craigslist, and Kijiji, and I am also learning how to use google ads. I have about $8000 to get me started. I've been doing alot of research on what to start out with, but it appears that there is alot of debate on VLM vs HWE. My area is a about an hour from Toronto, we have large suburbs with homes valued over 1 million dollars, so I am wanting to provided premium services. I have an extensive amount of former lawn clients who own ,multiple rental properties, so I will definitely be advertising there as well. I'd say my main concern overall is purchasing expensive equipment and having the phone not ring. I am not sure what equipment to go with and whether or not I should buy second hand. Any advice you may have for me would be much appreciated. I am 22 and living at home, so I have low expenses which is why now is the time for me to build a career for myself.

I respect your age and hustle. You need a lengthy phone consultation to walk you through all aspects of this industry. I'll be glad to help you. Whats a good number to reach you at?
