The Spruce Taps Chem-Dry For Best Carpet Cleaning Companies of 2021 List
A safe, effective carpet cleaning process put this iconic brand on the map over 40 years ago, and consumer advocates are still taking notice
One of the best things about being a Chem-Dry carpet cleaning franchise owner is how much of your advertising is done for you. Sure, you have great marketing support and a national brand, but there’s also the seemingly endless roster of “best-of” lists that drive business as well.
The latest of those is The 8 Best Carpet Cleaning Companies of 2021, put out by consumer portal The Spruce. Chem-Dry took top honors in the Best Fast Drying category with the website noting “Chem-Dry has a hot, carbonating extraction process that uses 80% less water than conventional, carpet steam cleaning.”
How The Spruce team evaluated the brand
The honor is significant because The Spruce team takes their job very seriously. In addition to looking for all kinds of products and services consumers want and need – and then testing them – they also come back every so often just to make sure everything’s still shipshape.
“After we publish an article, we don’t just forget about it,” the site explains. “Our team is relentless when it comes to updating and keeping our existing recommendations fresh, accurate, and helpful. We have our fingers on the pulse when it comes to the latest household releases from washers and dryers to vacuums and more. We make it a point to source recommendations from reliable companies who deliver exemplary customer service so you can have a seamless shopping experience.”
Sterling reputation helps build cleaning franchise business
“This accolade, as well as 30+ years on Entrepreneur magazine’s top-franchises list, is a big deal to Chem-Dry franchise owners,” says Doug Smith, Senior Vice President of Franchise Development.
“Good word of mouth has an incredible value, and when people see these rankings, whether it’s as a business to own or one to partner with for your cleaning needs, it’s great for us,” Smith says. “Chem-Dry is in the enviable position of being over 40 years old, known around the world — and still being discovered by consumers and evaluators alike. This is one big reason why we’re such a solid business to own.”
