Chem-Dry is the world’s largest rug, carpet, tile and stone cleaning franchise, with more than 3,500 franchises in over 35 countries worldwide.
The global franchise system is headquartered in Nashville, TN, USA. Chem-Dry partners with master franchises to bring its all-natural, green-certified cleaning solutions and patented equipment to other nations.

The company’s growth can be traced to its history of innovation. Chem-Dry employs chemists who devise cleaning solutions that attack stains and dirt on a molecular level, and its patented machines use and leave behind less water than traditional steam cleaning equipment.
“Chem-Dry is successful because the system is so good,” says Mattjis Kaas, who oversees about 45 franchisees in the Netherlands and Belgium. “The way we clean, if you compare us with the competition, we get dramatically better results.”
Chem-Dry has nearly twice as much market share as our nearest competitor in the U.S. floor cleaning market, and we are already the largest flooring cleaning franchise in the world, but we plan to expand into several new countries. We are specifically seeking master franchise partners in France, the Philippines, Turkey, Germany, Taiwan, India, Iceland, Brazil, Argentina and Chile — countries that are focused on the environment and where our technologies will bring the most value to the market.
A Master Franchise partner owns the rights to the brand within their territory and is responsible for developing the brand by selling the business to sub-franchises, and offering training and support to their sub-franchises. Master Franchise owners collect franchise fees and royalties from sub-franchises, who pay for the right to use Chem-Dry’s proven systems and products.
Why investing in Chem-Dry is a great decision
Chem-Dry offers two primary advantages over other floor cleaning franchises:
Green cleaning: Every year, as research details the risk of particulates and allergens to respiratory health, consumers are paying more attention to environmentally friendly cleaning standards. Chem-Dry’s primary cleaning solution, The Natural®, is green-certified, contains no phosphates or detergents and is safe and non-toxic for kids and pets. The company’s proprietary hot carbonating extraction process also uses 80% less water than steam cleaning.
Our cleaning technology: The fizzing sensation of carbonation is actually quite violent on the molecular level — like millions of tiny explosions that knock dirt loose from fabrics and surfaces. Chem-Dry’s equipment is designed to maximize the carbonation action, blasting dirt free so that it can be easily vacuumed away. The process has several advantages: Our primary cleaning solution, The Natural®, is similar to club soda and is so safe that technicians sometimes drink it to demonstrate its eco-credentials to customers; the process is so effective that Chem-Dry is able to use much less water than steam cleaning, which means rugs can dry in one or two hours instead of days, reducing the chance that mold and mildew will grow; and our process leaves no residues behind, unlike other floor cleaning methods that often leave behind chemical residues that actually attract dirt.
Chem-Dry’s chemists also have developed solutions to tackle specific tough stains such as pet urine, mustard and red wine.
