Carpet cleaning for RVs good idea or no?

A friend of mine owned her own carpet cleaning business a few years ago. She is now living in her RV full time. The other day she asked me if other RVers would pay to have their carpets cleaned. We are full time RVers and I told her I would ask others if this is something they would be interested in to see what kind of market she may have and if it would be profitable. So, what do you think? Is this a business venture she should explore? Would you pay to have your carpets cleaned?

I would, but as everything else depends on cost. It would have to be a mobile service.

We use a local carpet cleaning service. He charges 35$ to clean a RV. I call Henry and by the next day we have at least 6 signed on.

We do ours every fall before we close up. I use my portable unit there was a lady in our campground that did it and she charged around 40.00. Her commercial unit pulled more dirt out of the carpet than ours does.

Carpet Cleaning

We have a 2014 Puma
I contacted Forest River about cleaning our carpet because after researching here and online, I was nervous about it. They told me to go by the manufacturer's (Syntec) recommendation. I called them and they said there was no difference between cleaning their RV carpet and any residential carpet. I asked Forest River about our subfloor being able to handle the moisture but haven't heard back from them yet. So, as several have said, I'm going to jump in and clean it with my portable upholstery cleaner and make sure its a dry day and I suck up as much water as I can!

We clean ours once a year, normally in July so it will dry well. There was a woman at an FMCA rally providing the service. She was asking $250 for a 40 foot motorhome carpet. I thought that was steep given how much carpet is in a normal coach.
