What services does Zerodrytime offer its customers?

Inside every home or workplace, there’s always an opportunity to upsell your services and generate a substantial income for yourself.

With a Zerodrytime franchise you can offer not just carpet and upholstery cleaning for your customers, but hard floor cleaning and leather upholstery cleaning, leather restoration and leather recolouring.

Our range of services have been developed and refined over 10 years of working in both residential and commercial environments. There is nothing you will not be able to clean, and our services are the best in the industry.

Dry Carpet Cleaning

Our unique system of dry cleaning carpets, together with our own cleaning products, gives us the edge over other methods of cleaning carpets - we leave them, dry ready for immediate use, which is exactly what home owners want. Just think, would you want soggy carpets or damp dog smells?

We also offer stain protection with every clean, or with our Ultra Guard lasting up to 3 years if customers want extra peace of mind.

Upholstery Cleaning

You will be taught to clean and maintain all upholstery including leather, suede, and all soft furnishings. Zerodrytime’s upholstery cleaning uses our low moisture dry foam products to make the job fast and efficient, with super-fast dry times.

Upholstery cleaning is a great service to offer or use as an upsell to generate extra revenues when in a customer’s home.

Leather Restoration

After your extensive training, you will have the ability to restore leather like new. Restore old sofas and chairs - your customers will be amazed with the results.

Hard Floor Cleaning

Keeping ceramic tiles, porcelain, marble and terrazzo surfaces clean, safe and anti-slip in people home is another great solution you will be taught as a Zerodrytime franchisee. You will also have the ability to clean, seal and maintain all vinyl’s, Karndean & Amtico

Wooden Floor Cleaning

A Zerodrytime Franchise also includes training on how to clean and refurbish wooden floors; your customers will no longer need to pay thousands for floor sanding and resealing. You will be able to provide a low cost alternative to sanding.

Floors are refurbished to look like new with minimal fuss and no dust: our system is clean, fast and very durable. This is a fantastic service to be able to offer for busy hotels, pubs etc.

Commercial Services

Using the four domestic solutions for commercial environments gives you serious extra earning potential. Zerodrytime change the solutions slightly and use other commercial professional machines to complete jobs fast and efficiently.

Being able to offer commercial services is a very lucrative part of being a Zerodrytime franchisee. Adding this to your domestic services gives you the ability to grow and really build a sustainable business for years to come.

How does the Zerodrytime franchise model work?

A Zerodrytime franchisee owns and runs their own mobile cleaning company. No two days are the same, and that’s something that Zerodrytime franchisees say they love! Daily activities include:

  • Planning your day: Using the dedicated point of sale system, you can easily prepare your bespoke sales pitch for every customer
  • Merchandising: Zerodrytime provide you with plenty of sales promotions, but you can customise designs your way to entice customers to buy more
  • Delivering exceptional service to your customers: identifying their needs and offering them a quality cleaning solution
  • Back of house admin: including banking, ordering supplies and marketing materials to getting those essential local reviews.

Zerodrytime is all about working efficiently, so the brand utilises the latest web-based software so you can manage your working weeks from any place, at any time. Some franchisees have run their business for over 10 years – even bringing their family on board to support. Others have expanded to manage multiple territories with several vans, and employees managing the extra routes. Whatever your vision, Zerodrytime are here to help you to achieve it.
