How profitable is carpet cleaning, and is it really busy more towards holidays?

Around here carpet cleaners are a dime a dozen. There are a lot of pros around that stay busy, but it seems like there are also a lot of guys who buy a portable, get scared when the payments come due with no work lined up, and then lowball to try to pay off the machine. I have done commercial carpet before, and at some point may buy a portable with hot water to service existing customers. I'm not going to try to get 'carpet only' business. I may also look into bonnet cleaning for appearance maintenance. I already have the scrubber, so....

I know of a two crew company that does 500k a year in Arizona.

Curious if that was good money or if they just upsell, but most houses don't have many rooms. Its all shaggy or fuzzy to me.
