Over 99% of professional carpet cleaning companies do NOT offer this service. What is it? Lamp shade cleaning! In fact, lamp shades are the most overlooked piece of furnishing in homes, offices, and commercial buildings. You are a professional cleaner…. Look around your own home and inspect your lamp shades. What do you see? Dusty and discolored shades. On your next cleaning job, look at your customer’s lampshades. I’ll bet you will see the same dusty and discolored shades.
Lamp shade cleaning is basically the easiest cleaning task you will ever perform! Involved in the cleaning industry for 45 years, I couldn’t even estimate how many lamp shades we have cleaned. When we inform our customers (in our cleaning business) how we also specialize in lamp shade cleaning, they act shocked. People didn’t even think or realize that lamp shades could be cleaned. Plus, they can be cleaned safely with guaranteed no shrinkage or fabric distortion.
Perhaps, lamp shade cleaning might be the perfect business opportunity to challenge your cleaning expertise. Just think, for under $50.00, you have a new business add-on service that can create thousands of extra dollars in profit per year. The average lamp shade takes less then 3-4 minutes to clean. Pricing cleaning will range from $5.00 to $15.00 per lamp shade (depending on size).
