Rise of ‘staycationers’ means summer is now the peak time for cleaning PDF Print E-mail
Thursday, 02 June 2011 10:43
Spring has always been regarded as the traditional time for cleaning, but data would suggest that the summer has now become the peak time for this annual ritual. Figures from Rug Doctor, the carpet cleaning specialist, show that almost a third of annual rentals for its carpet cleaning machines now occur during the summer months.
According to Rug Doctor, the rise of the ‘staycationer’ (people who choose to stay at home for their holidays to save the pennies) has further contributed to this shift, as homeowners generally have more leisure time during the summer and carpet drying times are greatly reduced with the warmer weather.
“People are always surprised when we say that the summer is our busiest time,” commented Paul Fildes, Marketing Manager for Rug Doctor. “It’s always assumed that most cleaning takes place in the spring, especially after a long hard winter, but the spike in rental activity that we see over the summer proves that this just isn’t the case. If this summer turns out to be the sizzler that is promised, and this ‘holiday at home’ phenomenon continues as well, we will have a very busy summer for Rug Doctor rentals.”

For those living in smaller towns or rural locations, online shopping has become not just a convenience but a life line.
