What’s next for a startup that aims to revolutionize carpet cleaning?
In a recent interview with The Wall Street Journal, founder and CEO of capture carpet cleaner and former president of carpet cleaning company, Brad Breslow, revealed that Amazon is in talks with his company about becoming a full-fledged carpet cleaning service.
According to the WSJ, Amazon wants to offer carpet cleaners in more than 50 cities around the world, but as of now, only a handful of them have been launched.
Breslow is currently in negotiations with Amazon to make a deal, but he’s also open to other platforms such as Uber, Lyft, and Airbnb.
Amazon recently acquired the online marketplace Snap, which allows customers to quickly order a new pair of shoes.
“Amazon is in negotiations to acquire Snap.
They are currently in discussions with Snap to be a part of a larger partnership,” Breslood said.
“We have no specific details but we are actively exploring our options.”
Breslowing added that Amazon’s efforts to launch a carpet cleaning app were not entirely unexpected, given the company’s aggressive expansion in the consumer electronics industry in recent years.
“They [Amazon] have been working to accelerate this, and it’s a good time for them to do so,” he said.
While Amazon may be interested in launching a carpet cleaner service in the U.S., Bresold said that it would be difficult for him to convince his company to enter the space in India.
“In the U, it’s not a very well known niche, and we have to prove ourselves to the customers in India, the people that will pay,” he explained.
