According to SBDCNET
"The Janitorial Services industry is growing and with the need for more professional services in the cleaning and maid services market comes a growth opportunity in the industry. As a result of these improving conditions, industry revenue is forecast to increase an average of 3.3% per year to total $47.7 billion in 2016, including a 3.1% jump in 2012...
In 2012...Residential and non-residential construction activity will escalate, resulting in new cleaning contracts and more robust revenue growth. Demand for domestic cleaning services is also projected to rise; as unemployment trends downward, household disposable income will grow. The primary users of household cleaning services are households in the upper-income brackets. The number of households with annual incomes exceeding $100,000 is expected to rise at an average annual rate of 1.6% between 2011 and 2016, which will result in greater demand for residential cleaning services."
