I would say it is mainly due to so many Hacks, B&S companies and generally fly by night type guys that are in this business... Lets face it there are more hacks then there are good cleaners....You cannot drive 4 blocks in my city without seeing $65 whole house yard signs on the corner... And only 39% of Americans can afford a $1000 surprise emergency expense.... Most people are living paycheck to paycheck due to either low income or high debt.... Only like 30% of homeowners will ever hire a professional carpet cleaner... Most of them do not see value in the service because they have never seen a real cleaning, they think a rug doctor works good...
