About Chem-Dry

Chem-Dry 40 Years of Experience GraphicRobert Harris started working his way through law school in the 1970s as a carpet cleaner working for another company. He found that he was not happy with the performance of available cleaning products and began researching a better solution. Harris’ research stretched into many years of studying the chemical properties and reactions of a variety of cleaning formulas combined with backbreaking experimentation that required him to continually clean carpets with a succession of cleaning formulations.

Eventually, Robert Harris discovered his ideal cleaning formula. He found that a unique carbonated cleaning solution actually delivered better results, and was safe and non-toxic to boot! Harris founded Chem-Dry and soon the demand for his superior cleaning services grew exponentially. His entrepreneurial journey blossomed into a thriving success that has continued to grow since those first days in the early ’70s. From the very first small group of franchise locations, the original Chem-Dry network has expanded over recent decades to offer thousands of successful franchises throughout the world. Thanks to Harris, we can provide superior carpet cleaning to Tulare County, California!
