CLEANING SERVICE

November 14, 2005

● Demand for contract cleaning services and supplies is expected to grow 7% a year to total $50 billion
in 2007, according to Cleaning Services and Supplies from The Freedonia Group, Cleveland, OH.
Non-residential services will dominate, but residential cleaning services will post faster growth
through 2007, the report revealed. This will be supported by double-digit gains in maid services.
Cleaning supply sales will jump 5% a year to $5.6 billion in 2007. A boost in the economy will
loosen budgets for cleaning services and result in cleaning equipment purchases. There will also
be rising concerns of indoor air quality. Office building and institutional markets will remain the
largest segments for both cleaning services and supplies, Freedonia executives said. More info:
