Chem-Dry Franchisees Tap Southwest Florida Market
Clancy and Rosemary Byrne bring carpet cleaning franchise’s services to subtropical region
At Chem-Dry, we’re committed to much more than carpet cleaning. Our services include a deep clean for upholstery, rugs, and other surfaces such as tile and stone, which means our franchisees can enjoy multiple revenue streams. Franchisees Clancy and Rosemary Byrne are providing Chem-Dry’s various cleaning services more than ever from their Southwest Florida location – a subtropical region that benefits from our low-moisture cleaning system.
“Having a low moisture cleaning system in Southwest Florida is a perfect fit for the subtropical climate,” says Clancy. “There is less risk for mold or mildew, and a one- to two-hour dry time compared with one to two days for other methods. Some of our most popular services are treating musty carpets or furniture, as well as our PURT (pet urine removal treatment). Having your home closed for the summer or pets indoors too long can create unpleasant odors that we can remove at a molecular level — not just mask with deodorizers or fragrances.”
The Byrnes’ franchise also benefits from Chem-Dry’s use of a natural carbonating citrus cleaner that leaves no dirt or residue. Our products are not only superior cleaners but are also safe for children and pets, which is a huge selling point for our customers.
“We used green products long before it was considered an option in the industry,” Clancy says. “Our patented product line, including cleaners, protectants, and sanitizers, is almost all certified green.”
Chem-Dry is the world’s largest carpet cleaning franchise with more than 3,500 locations that serve 10,000 homes a day. We are Entrepreneur magazine’s top-rated carpet cleaning franchise and one of its Top 10 choices for low-cost franchises. Our hot carbonating extraction process delivers a faster-drying, deeper, healthier clean that appeals to homeowners and business owners — and the process can be used to clean tile and stone, upholstery, and other surfaces in addition to carpet. We have franchises in 50 countries across the globe.
A carpet cleaning franchise with virtually endless opportunities
While the Byrnes enjoy owning a competitive cleaning franchise in a promising region, the franchisees say they also enjoy the benefits and opportunities they are creating for the carpet cleaning technicians they hire. The extensive training and support the Chem-Dry franchise provides helps create employees who are skilled and educated about each cleaning job they take on, and ones who are committed to doing the best job they can.
“We enjoy helping technicians to be successful in their life skills and instilling motivation to develop quality and pride in their workmanship,” Clancy says. “Also, helping them to develop a strong customer relationship built on respect and trust will benefit them in all aspects of their lives. Our techs love customer feedback about their great service and professionalism. Whether they choose to stay with us or start other careers, these attributes will ensure their success.”
