In a year when the global economy has been rocked by the Brexit vote, it’s become increasingly clear that the carpet cleaning industry is struggling.
According to the World Health Organisation, the average household spends around £100 on a single carpet cleaning.
This means that when the carpeting industry starts to see inflation, it will be even more expensive than when it was cheap.
Inflation has been creeping in since the summer of 2019.
And, while it might seem like a minor detail, the cost of carpet cleaning in the UK is rising faster than inflation.
A new study by the RTE newspaper has revealed that the average price of a new carpet has risen by over 200% since the Brexit referendum, rising from £4,955 in July 2020 to £7,095 in September 2020.
That’s an increase of more than £400 per household.
The RTE research also found that the cost for the average customer of carpeting has risen from around £300 to £1,000, a rise of more then £1 per customer.
It’s clear that a large part of the cost is driven by the cost that consumers are paying to get the job done, which is also increasing.
And it’s not just the price of the carpet.
The research also reveals that the demand for carpet cleaning has also risen by almost 60% since 2019.
It has also been the main reason why carpet cleaners have been forced to cut back on the number of cleaners they can keep on staff, because there’s not enough room to stock the facilities.
This is an example of a major issue in the carpet industry.
The biggest problem is that the supply chain has become fragmented, with many cleaners needing to be on call 24/7 and a shortage of workers is a huge issue.
As a result, cleaners are being forced to put in longer shifts, which in turn means a higher turnover, and a bigger bill to the cleaners.
And this can be an even bigger issue when the prices of carpet cleaners start to increase again.
But if you want to see what carpet cleaning is really like, here’s a guide to what to expect.
