With over 3,000 franchises in over 55 countries, Chem-Dry is the world's largest carpet cleaning franchise. Since our founding in 1977, we have been in homes and businesses providing customers with healthier, drier, and cleaner floors. Our innovative cleaning process uses the power of Hot Carbonating Extraction and organic cleaning solutions to reach down deep to extract dirt and stains from floors while using 80% less water than our competitors. The result? Carpets that dry in 1-2 hours and customers that keep coming back.

We are the leader in the carpet cleaning industry. Every year home and business owners install an estimated 10 billion square feet of new carpet, and that carpet has to be cleaned. Carpet makes up more than 52 percent of all residential floor coverings in the United States and Chem-Dry has constructed a better way to clean it and keep it clean. We clean carpets in more than 10,000 homes every day, and more than anyone in the world!

Chem-Dry Canadian cleaning franchisees

Per the chart above, our average revenue per franchisee is $311,949 USD, so you can quickly recoup your initial investment of $67,645 to $178,907 (depending on the number of territories and equipment packages you purchase). For entrepreneurs thinking about opening a franchise business, the benefits of working with Chem-Dry go well beyond effective cleaning. At a time when small business loans are still hard to come by, you can buy a Chem-Dry franchise for as little as $15,000 down and secure in-house financing --- a rarity in the franchise industry and a real blessing for people with a drive to succeed, but have limited funds. And regardlessof the size of the investment or equipment package you choose, your monthly royalty remains constant and affordable....a mere $525 a month.
