They're idiots if they don't clean
Sure, big checks are coming in from insurance companies, but several of them deal with crap companies like code blue or bad insurance companies who wait until they get a letter after 90days.
So carpet cleaning is steady, payroll money for the techs to help pass time till the $100k checks come in 90+ days later
I drool over my local franchise. They have several school/college accounts cleaning all their carpet. I assumed it was the steady work that helped them when restoration jobs slowed downThe restoration companies I've worked for did not clean any carpet except for those involved in losses.
WDR was the cashflow supporting large losses/smoke/fire.
