“Eco-cleaning is the way forward for the industry”

“Eco-cleaning is the way forward for the industry”

Global Franchise Award winner and world-leading deep cleaning franchise, Chem-Dry, is committed to developing its forward-thinking eco-friendly products and services

Chem-Dry has grown from a carpet cleaning company in 1987 to the world’s largest carpet cleaning franchise with over 3,500 locations worldwide. A multi-year recipient of the top category honours, it recently won the Best Property Maintenance category at the Global Franchise Magazine Award ceremony held at the International Franchise Expo in San Diego earlier this month.

Chem-Dry demonstrated to a respected panel of judges that it will continue to expand its global footprint, maintains strong and supportive relationships with franchise owners, innovates in its marketing and promotions, and is a strong supporter of international franchising. The brand faced strong competition from other well-known names in a wide range of service areas, including cleaning and janitorial, flooring, building and maintenance.

Deep clean the natural way

One of the reasons consumers choose Chem-Dry over other services is because it offers a healthier, safer carpet cleaning experience. The brand is the only carpet cleaning company that uses a unique hot carbonating extraction cleaning process utilising the natural power of carbonation to release dirt and grime from deep within carpets.

Compared to traditional steam cleaning, the Chem-Dry process uses around 80 per cent less water, meaning carpets dry in one to two hours instead of one to two days. And rather than relying on harsh chemicals, the brand’s core cleaner The Natural is one of the purest carpet cleaning solutions available. It’s non-toxic, green-certified, and contains no harsh soaps, detergents, phosphates, or fragrances.

Chem-Dry’s commitment to eco-friendly cleaning doesn’t stop at carpets. The company has a diverse range of over 50 green-certified, environmentally-sustainable products for everything from tile and grout to pet urine treatment.

More than carpets

Chem-Dry is committed to offering franchise owners a suite of services that provide flexibility and are easily scalable. The brand does this by continually adapting to the changing landscape and offering a variety of cleaning methods for every surface in the home and office. With carpet cleaning as the brand’s core service, franchise owners also offer upholstery cleaning, pet urine and odour removal, tile and grout cleaning, wood floor cleaning and more.

Chem-Dry is a company that’s always moving forward, with an aggressive research and development team constantly looking for ways to improve products and equipment. Chem-Dry COO, Dan Tarantin, attributes this ongoing research and development as the reason why Chem-Dry has been consistently ranked the top carpet cleaning franchise for the past 30 years.

“We have a history of innovation, and this innovation – continually improving the production, the processes and the services that we offer our franchisees to help them stay on the leading edge of the industry – has enabled us to be number one for the past 30 years,” Dan says, adding that development of new products and processes continues today.
