Carpet cleaning is a massive market. Every year, home and business owners install an estimated 14 billion square feet of new carpet, and all of it has to be cleaned. Carpet makes up more than 47 percent of all residential floor coverings in the United States, and Chem-Dry has devised a better way to clean it and keep it clean.

Since our founding in 1977, we've used a patented method of hot carbonated water extraction to attack dirt, dust, oils and allergens in carpet fibers and on hard surfaces.

Our carpets dry more quickly and stay cleaner and healthier for longer than any other cleaning method; we're proud that the Carpet & Rug Institute has given our process its Seal of Approval. Our method is safe and environmentally friendly, with an organic cleaner and no harmful chemicals or soaps.

What Makes Chem-Dry Better?

We enjoy a customer retention rate of 96 percent, by far the best in the business. And our training and support systems are honed and refined over our 38 years in franchising.

It adds up to an ideal business opportunity for a smart entrepreneur. Look at the average revenues for our franchise owners:

The revenue means you can quickly recoup your initial investment of $11,300-$142,820 (depending on the number of territories and equipment packages you purchase). And Chem-Dry offers ways to make the investment even more affordable, including a 10 percent licensing fee discount for veterans through the International Franchise Association's VetFran program and in-house, low-interest financing — a rarity for a franchise system. We offer multi-unit territories; your Chem-Dry empire can be as big or small as you want it.

Even with more than 3,000 locations around the world, we're not done growing. We recently moved our headquarters from Logan, Utah, to Nashville, Tenn., to help us grow our presence in the eastern half of the United States, where we're busy signing agreements with ambitious entrepreneurs ready to take advantage of one of the franchise industry's best opportunities.

Chem-Dry's royalty system is unique in the industry as well. Instead of a percentage of your profits, you'll only be paying a flat monthly royalty fee of $390 per franchise. You'll be hard pressed to find a more favorable royalty!
