Report Reveals Cleaning Market Is on the Upswing After Pandemic Losses

July 23, 2020

Despite losses due to the coronavirus pandemic earlier in the year, the U.S. cleaning industry is rebounding, according to a report from Jobbers, a job tracking and customer management platform.

The report analyzed the performance of cleaning businesses—including residential cleaning, commercial cleaning, and pressure washing—in areas such as revenue growth, employment, and consumer demands. It found new work declined by 12% in March year-over-year (YoY), as nonessential businesses temporarily closed, and fell even further to 34% YoY in April. Cleaning industry revenues fell by more than 35% in April compared to the same time in 2019, with the industry seeing an overall decline of more than 45%.

However, in June the industry experienced a significant recovery with revenues growing 11% YoY. As revenue growth is reaching the same levels as last year and new work scheduling is rebounding positively, the report predicts the cleaning industry should return to a positive trend in the third quarter of 2020.
