Cleaning company franchise resists dirt, recession

January 14, 2010

Recessions do not hit all companies equally, a fact that pleases those at All Seasons ChemDry of Morgan County.

The company, which cleans carpets and recently added tile and grout cleaning to its repertoire, discovered it benefited from customers delaying the large expenditure of buying new carpet.

When the economy went sour, many elected to clean their carpets instead.

"I liken it to cars," said Clint Jones, field service representative. "People don't buy new cars as much in this economy; they repair old cars. We're like the mechanics. People aren't replacing carpet and flooring as much; they're using us to save the carpet so they don't have to buy a new one." From The Decatur Daily.
