History of the Chem-Dry Brand

Robert Harris started working through law school in the 1970s as a carpet cleaner for a different carpet cleaning company. He quickly became unsatisfied with the performance of available cleaning products and began researching a better solution. Harris’s research stretched into many years of studying the chemical properties and reactions of various cleaning formulas combined with experimentation that required him to continually clean carpets with a succession of cleaning formulations. The process was similar to how Edison tried a hundred times to build the perfect light bulb before he succeeded.

Eventually, Robert Harris discovered the ideal cleaning formula. His unique carbonated solution delivered exceptional cleaning and was also safe and non-toxic. Harris founded Chem-Dry, and 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 first small group of franchise locations, the original Chem-Dry network has expanded over recent decades to offer thousands of successful franchises worldwide, including Chem-Dry of Jacksonville, based in Jacksonville, FL.
