Bio
The Chem-Dry story began in the 1970's when Robert Harris founded the company to introduce a new way to clean carpets. Chem-Dry's Hot Carbonating Extraction process removes dirt from carpet fibers and other surfaces without introducing chemicals or saturating carpets with water. The business has grown to include upholstery, tile, stone, granite and grout cleaning, pet urine and odor removal, and water damage restoration. Today, Chem-Dry has more than 3,000 franchises in more than 55 countries.
