What Is a Chem-Dry Carpet Cleaning Franchise?

We’ve built the brand, products, support and training you need

Chem-Dry cleans more spaces than any other floor-care company. What’s more, our patented products and extensive experience in the industry also enable us to make people’s homes and workplaces healthier. Our brand has the lead in market share in home carpet cleaning, and our distinguished franchise owners are dedicated to providing top-notch service.

The U.S. carpet cleaning industry is substantial and is growing along with the population. Consider these points:

  • Carpet cleaning is experiencing a historic growth of approximately 5 percent anually and was expected to gross $5 billion in 2018.
  • Every year, more than 10 billion square feet of new carpet is installed in the United States, and all of it requires regular cleaning — building a great deal of untapped market potential into the industry.
  • Chem-Dry is the nation’s largest carpet cleaning franchise.
  • We have over 3,000 franchises using the company’s patented products in over 55 countries around the world.
  • Chem-Dry is a well-known, legacy brand with more than 40 years of experience.

Chem-Dry’s global footprint also is impressive. For instance, Canada’s 13.3 million households add up to an additional market of about 10 percent of the size of that in the United States.

Our unique Hot Carbonating Extraction cleaning process involves the use of water to eliminate dust, dirt, oils and allergens in carpet fibers, as well as other types of surfaces. This process allows carpets to dry more quickly and remain cleaner and healthier for longer than any other method. This gives us an edge in the industry, and we are proud to carry the seal of approval for our process from the Carpet and Rug Institute.

Start a carpet cleaning franchise with a low investment

This is an ideal franchise for an entrepreneurial-minded individual with ambition, determination and an aptitude for business. However, it does not require a large amount of money or experience to begin. We provide the necessary training during a week-long session in either Logan, Utah, or Nashville, Tennessee, and you can start your Chem-Dry business by financing much of the business for a down payment of $10,000 for the initial licensing fee plus, typically, 10-20% down  of initial equipment purchases, with total startup costs as low as $67,645.

Chem-Dry has built the largest and most trusted carpet cleaning brand in the country, and we are working to expand our number of locations and market share. This all translates to a considerable business opportunity for our franchise owners.

We safeguard our competitive advantage and intellectual property to guarantee the security of our franchisees’ investments. Chem-Dry’s chief goal is to support the growth and profitability of our franchisees, and our products, services and professionalism all are designed to achieve this.

Chem-Dry doesn’t offer franchises to just anyone. We carefully screen and evaluate franchise candidates to make sure each one is a good fit for our system. When you combine the broad range of investment amounts available to a franchise owner with the tools Chem-Dry offers its franchisees — including financing for much of the franchise fee and equipment costs — you end up with an excellent opportunity at a reasonable price point.
