Business Description

Est. 2001. Established: clientele, referral sources and systems.

Business Overview: American Dream Carpet Cleaning, LLC was established in 2001 by Bill Harris in Central City located in Linn County in the northeast quarter of Iowa. American Dream Carpet Cleaning, LLC provides excellent cleaning of carpets, fine upholstery, pet urine, fine rugs, tile & grout cleaning, and water damage services with genuine care and concern for each of their clients. Whether serving residential, commercial, educational, governmental, church, and many other institutions, Bill has managed to establish a reputation for excellence and integrity within the entire community. The business uses a proprietary rotary cleaning system which is drastically more effective at cleaning the lowest regions of carpet fiber where most of the dirt lies. In 2015, new clients from the free Google listing generated sales of $96,626.00 at no cost. American Dream Carpet Cleaning, LLC is currently the only business in the entire market area that has won Angie’s List Super Services Award, which requires Perfect straight A review’s from every Angie’s list client for the entire year in all five categories and a “Page of Happiness” nomination (their highest honor and Angie’s list clients expect to find the best), and a Google five star review average puts it at the top. Contact the owner for additional details. Bill has had no desire to grow the business and has not devoted his full attention to the business because he has been focusing on his only son and the patenting of products which should be approved very soon. He admits he does not have the organized management and delegation skills it takes to fully put the business in the next level of success. Bill did NO Marketing, even to current clients, usually let the phone go to voicemail to screen all calls and in 2015 and with his weaknesses and lack of dedication with very little time spent at the business, it still grew. A new owner has the opportunity to achieve explosive growth by simply answering the phone and dedicating time to the business. American Dream Carpet Cleaning, LLC is a profitable business and the asking price clearly indicates that Bill wants to sell quickly and the next buyer to enjoy financial success. This business is priced to sell and the new owner can experience a comfortable lifestyle. Bill has been very successful in his market area even though he does very little advertising. The business could easily be explosively grown with an aggressive marketing approach and the energy to service the customers with more enthusiasm than Bill has presented. Bill is selling his business in order to spend more time with his wife and son and feels American Dream Carpet Cleaning, LLC will provide the new owner with a great business with extreme growth potential located in a great community. He would like to see the new owner thrive and take this already successful business to the next stage. Come to Central City, tour the community, and meet with Bill to find out just how profitable your future can be. This is an exceptional opportunity and will not last long so Call Today. You don’t want to be the one that missed out!

Key Points:
