Chem-Dry Franchise Owners Benefit From Skyrocketing Demand for Sanitizing Services
New expectations of cleanliness and sanitation makes the world’s largest carpet cleaning franchise a best-bet investment
For many Americans, cleaning their homes and properties has always been an important part of their routines. For others, this is a brand new world, and they need help with sanitizing services. In fact, poison centers across the country have not only had a surge in calls about bleach products and disinfectants since early April, but also a recent survey by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that many people have limited knowledge of how to safely prepare and use cleaning products and disinfectants.
This is where Chem-Dry, the world’s largest carpet cleaning franchise, outshines the competition. With more than 40 years in business, Chem-Dry has built one of the most trusted carpet cleaning brands in the country by utilizing our patented Hot Carbonating Extraction process. Even better, our cleaning line features more than 50 green-certified products. As a result, our thriving carpet cleaning franchise is able to remove up to 98% of common household allergens from carpets and upholstery, as well as 89% of the airborne bacteria in homes when a sanitizer is added.
As a franchise opportunity, Chem-Dry is a best-bet investment for entrepreneurs seeking an easy-to-scale, high margin business. Not only is our carpet cleaning franchise an affordable investment as a home-based business, but also our franchise owners benefit from endless revenue opportunities. Whether it’s new or repeat business, Chem-Dry franchisees have the ability to sell add-on services and boost ticket sales with our various service offerings including area rug cleaning, upholstery cleaning, dryer vent cleaning, tile and stone cleaning, wood floor cleaning and more.
How Will Chem-Dry Support You in Business?
With more than 40 years in business, Chem-Dry is committed to helping our franchise owners thrive in business. This is why we have developed one of the most comprehensive training and ongoing support platforms in the industry. This starts with a weeklong residency at Chem-Dry University at one of our campuses in Nashville, Tennessee, or Logan, Utah. Here you’ll receive hands-on training about the Chem-Dry business systems, learn best practices in carpet cleaning as well as how to utilize our cutting-edge equipment. Next, your QuickStart coach will help you adopt the best practices you learned in training throughout your first year in business. Our ongoing support won’t stop there, as you will continue to receive support from our exceptional leadership team.
The best part? Chem-Dry is one of the most affordable opportunities in the industry. The initial investment for a Chem-Dry cleaning franchise begins at $67,645. Our thriving carpet cleaning franchise offers low-cost, in-house financing for the cost of the franchise fee. Additionally, the loan is interest- and payment-free until the fourth month of operation. U.S. military veterans and first responders also can qualify for a discounted license fee.
“Chem-Dry carpet and floor cleaning franchise owners set the terms of their business,” says Doug Smith, Senior Vice President of Franchise Development at Chem-Dry. “They identify what equipment package they want to get started with, and work with our training, marketing and other teams to set up the business in a way that’s not overwhelming and lets them start strong. From there, they build out a customer base, bring in new business and grow in a way that makes sense for their goals.”
