April 21, 2009
Tuesday''s Ask the Experts question from a cleaning professional on the International Custodial Advisors Network (ICAN) "Ask the Experts" page: Does anyone know where I can find an industry report listing certain recent trends such as economic growth or franchise growth for janitorial services over the past few years? I am looking to present some solid statistical data to a group of investors concerning the industry’s recent and anticipated growth.
The answer:
Here are several sources for studies and info on the cleaning industry and business trends:
1. www.freedoniagroup.com
, 440-684-9600
They sell a study on the janitorial, cleaning products and chemical.
2. www.marketdataenterprises.com
, 813-931-3900
They have a study on janitorial, carpet and housecleaning markets. You can by the report by page, section or the entire report.
3. www.cmmonline.com

Cleaning & Maintenance Management magazine publishes two studies each year, on in house markets and another on the contractor markets. The studies are published in different issue of their magazine.
