We clean carpets and upholstery with the Chem-Dry process which is the safest and most thorough method available. Our Cleaner “The Natural” is safe and non-toxic, using carbonation instead of harsh soaps and detergents to lift soils and stains from carpets and upholstery leaving them freshly cleaned. Our process uses less water than traditional steam cleaners so carpets cleaned with Chem-Dry dry in 1-2 instead of days! You’ll be able to enjoy your cleaned items the same day with little downtime. Our solution is also Ph balanced (this means you won’t have to worry about browning or yellowing). You’ll be able to enjoy your cleaned items the same day with little downtime. Schedule an appointment with us today!

History of the Chem-Dry Brand

Robert Harris, founder of the Chem-Dry brand, was working his way through law school in the 1907’s by cleaning carpets for a different company. After gaining experience in the field, he noticed some improvements that could be made in the cleaning process used. Harris’ research stretched into many years of studying the chemical properties and reactions of a variety of cleaning formulas combined with experimentation that required him to continually clean carpets with a succession of cleaning formulations.

Eventually, Robert Harris discovered the ideal cleaning formula. This formula features the power of carbonation, which provides a deep clean that is also safe and non-toxic. 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, including North American Chem-Dry based out of Sonoma, CA.
