About Us

Harris Research is the owner of the Chem-Dry brand. Founded in 1977, Chem-Dry is the world's leading carpet and upholstery cleaning service, with nearly 3,500 units in over 50 countries. Its green-certified solution and proprietary Hot Carbonating Extraction cleaning process provide a deeper clean, allow surfaces to dry faster and leaves homes and businesses healthier. Chem-Dry has been ranked the number one carpet cleaning franchise by Entrepreneur magazine for 30 consecutive years.

Our Industry

Carpet cleaning is a massive market. Every year, home and business owners install an estimated 10 billion square feet of new carpet, and all of it has to be cleaned. Carpet makes up more than 52 percent of all residential floor coverings in the United States, and Chem-Dry has devised a better way to clean it and keep it clean.

Since our founding in 1977, we've used a patented method of Hot Carbonating Extraction to attack dirt, dust, oils and allergens in carpet fibers and on hard surfaces.

Our carpets dry more quickly and stay cleaner and healthier for longer than they would with any other cleaning method; we're proud that the Carpet & Rug Institute has given our process its Seal of Approval. Our method is safe and environmentally friendly, with an organic cleaner and no harmful chemicals or soaps.

Our Opportunity

Our total investment range is $56,495 - $162,457, and we offer competitive financing for your business. You can own a Chem-Dry franchise and join the world's largest carpet cleaning brand, with nearly 3,500 locations around the globe. Chem-Dry is one of the most recognized brands in franchising, and its low investment cost and high rates of return make it one of the best franchise values around.

That's not just our opinion. Entrepreneur magazine has rated Chem-Dry the top carpet cleaning franchise for 30 years in a row. Year after year, Chem-Dry's franchise system earns one of the highest ratings in Franchise Business Review's annual franchisee satisfaction survey; our franchise owners say they love the freedom and flexibility Chem-Dry ownership gives them to enjoy their families and interests.

Our Benefits

We enjoy a customer retention rate of 96 percent, by far the best in the business. And our training and support systems are honed and refined over our 38 years in franchising. It adds up to an ideal business opportunity for a smart entrepreneur.

Chem-Dry offers ways to make the investment even more affordable, including a 10 percent licensing fee discount for veterans through the International Franchise Association's VetFran program and in-house, low-interest financing — a rarity for a franchise system. For $9,500 down with our special internal financing, you can get started in your own carpet cleaning business with Chem-Dry.

Multi-Unit Territories Available!

We offer multi-unit territories; your Chem-Dry empire can be as big or small as you want it.

Even with nearly 3,500 locations around the world, we're not done growing.
