Chem-Dry’s Sanitizing Service An Easy Must-Have for Chem-Dry Clients
Home and business owners are looking for safe and thorough cleaning services, creating opportunities for Chem-Dry’s expanded roster of services
Smart consumers, whether homeowners or business operators, are not leaving anything to chance when it comes to cleaning in the COVID-19 era. They want efficient, thorough and reliable services — exactly what Chem-Dry cleaning franchise owners and their teams have been offering for over 40 years.
And now Chem-Dry’s already-robust Healthy Home line of services has been augmented with a very timely offering: our new Sanitizing Service. With this addition, Chem-Dry cleaning franchise owners now have a new way to become an even more valuable resource to the communities they serve — and up ticket totals and revenue at the same time.
Thorough sanitizing for high- and low-touch surfaces
Technicians use Chem-Dry’s proprietary Hot Carbonating Extraction process with an EPA-registered, hospital-grade sanitizer for use on surfaces such as carpets, upholstery, rugs, tile/stone and wood floors, and granite countertops. In homes, everything from doors, such as refrigerator and cabinet doors and handles to flooring, including furniture and rugs, is sanitized. In the commercial setting, the service likewise handles high-contact areas such as light switches, desk phones, computer mice, restroom surfaces and flooring, furniture and rugs.
“Chem-Dry has always been the provider of choice for consumers who want to reduce dirt, allergens, pollen and airborne bacteria,” says Douglas Smith, Senior Vice President of Franchise Development. “Our new Sanitizing Services allows us to take that expertise up several notches and bring peace of mind to our customers.”
Upsell opportunities with minimal new investment
Even better for Chem-Dry carpet cleaning franchise owners, the new service can be added to existing offerings easily. That means it can be offered on every job estimate right away, because everything is ready to go once a franchise owner decides to add this offering.
“We have the full suite of solutions and equipment ready now,” Smith says. “It is easy to use and provides excellent performance. And we are working on the next stage now, so we will be able to add even more products and services under this specialty line. That’s going to mean increased interest and visibility for franchise owners, and a lot of new business opportunities.”
