Leading Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning Franchise Ready to Meet Rising Demand for Healthier, Safer Homes & Workspaces.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — As worry mounts about the safety and health of homes and workplaces amid the pandemic – coupled with the start of the peak cold and flu season – residential and commercial cleaning service brands are experiencing unprecedented demand.

To serve this growing need, Chem-Dry, the world’s leading carpet and upholstery cleaning service with a network serving over 11,000 locations a day across 55 countries, has signed agreements to expand its footprint with 64 new franchises nationwide thus far this year.

One of the driving factors for this growth is that Chem-Dry has continued to innovate with new products and services since the start of the pandemic, including the launch of its new MicroPro ShieldTM Service. This new service first disinfects hard surfaces and sanitizes soft surfaces using a hospital-grade disinfectant that is approved by the EPA for use against SARS-CoV-2 (the cause of COVID-19), and then applies a protective antimicrobial coating that kills bacteria and algae on contact for up to 90 days. System-wide sales of Chem-Dry’s overall sanitizing services are up over 300% thus far this year compared to last year.

These franchise agreements will expand Chem-Dry’s presence and allow it to offer its wide array of services to more consumers in the following regions:

  • 30 franchises across the central region in markets including Chicago, Cincinnati, Columbus, Dallas and Austin
  • 18 franchises across the western region in markets including Salt Lake City, Oakland, Santa Barbara, San Jose, Tucson and Spokane
  • 16 franchises across the eastern region in markets including Atlanta, Miami and Boston

“New franchisee prospects are telling us they’re inspired to join our mission of creating safer, healthier homes and businesses and providing peace of mind for families, business operators and employees,” said Ed Quinlan, President of Chem-Dry, part of the BELFOR Franchise Group family of brands. “Another common theme among interested Chem-Dry franchisee candidates is innovation. They feel confident and excited about being part of a worldwide network that has a history of and ongoing commitment to developing new technologies and products that protect homes and businesses from harmful germs and bacteria, such as MicroPro Shield.”

Over its 43-year history, Chem-Dry has become the recognized market leader by building a network of over 2,000 locations across the U.S that cover roughly 93% of the country’s population. To meet the growing demand for its innovative services, the company is actively seeking community-minded entrepreneurs to join the mission of delivering safer, healthier spaces across the country. With prime territories available nationwide, Chem-Dry is an industry-leading brand in a large and growing category, that offers its franchise network world-class training and support.

Chem-Dry Launches MicroPro Shield™ Service, Offering Antimicrobial Protection for up to 90 Days

2020-08-06T10:54:28-04:00August 6th, 2020|Tags: , , , , |

New Service Disinfects & Uses Patented Technology to Offer Extended Surface Protection for Homes and Businesses.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Chem-Dry, the world’s leading carpet and upholstery cleaning service with a network serving over 11,000 locations a day across 55 countries, announced today the launch of its new MicroPro ShieldTM  service for homes and businesses. Available in participating markets, this innovative service first disinfects hard surfaces and sanitizes soft surfaces using a hospital-grade disinfectant approved by the EPA for use against SARS-CoV-2 (the cause of COVID-19), and then applies a protective antimicrobial coating that kills microbes on contact for up to 90 days.

Once the service is completed, home or business owners will receive a certificate to signify that they have been serviced following proper protocols to ensure a safer environment and provide peace-of-mind for families, employees and customers.

The two-stage service works as follows:

  • Step 1: Disinfect & Sanitize
    • A hospital-grade disinfectant is used on surfaces such as carpets, upholstery, rugs, tile and wood floors, and granite countertops that kills bacteria and viruses and is approved by the EPA for use against SARS-CoV-2, the cause of COVID-19
    • Kills 99.9% of bacteria from both hard and soft surfaces
    • Low toxicity, hypo-allergenic, non-corrosive and contains no harsh chemicals
    • Fast-acting to minimize disruption at home or work
    • EPA and FDA approved for use on most surfaces, including food-contact surfaces
  • Step 2: Antimicrobial Protection for up to 90 Days
    • Applied with an electrostatic sprayer, the patented antimicrobial coating acts as a protective armor to kill microbes including bacteria and algae on contact for up to 90 days, inhibiting the ability for superbugs to grow
    • Creates a layer of spikes that mechanically kill microbes by piercing the cell and rupturing their cell membrane, causing the microorganisms to die
    • Regular cleaning of treated surfaces will not impact extended protection effectiveness
    • Non-toxic and environmentally-friendly solution that can be applied to most surfaces
    • EPA and FDA approved for use on food contact surfaces

“As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, homeowners and business owners now understand that cleanliness and sanitization are no longer a short-term solution, but rather an ongoing, preventative necessity to keep families, employees and customers safe,” said Ed Quinlan, President of Chem-Dry, part of the BELFOR Franchise Group family of brands. “The significant added benefit of extended antimicrobial protection that comes with our new MicroPro Shield service gives families, business owners and workers the confidence and security of having safer homes and workspaces – just when they need it most. We feel this new service will allow our franchise owners all across the country to make an even bigger impact in the communities they serve by helping make homes and businesses healthier and safer for longer.”

Based on independent lab testing, the disinfectant used by Chem-Dry eliminates 99.9% of bacteria from soft surfaces like carpets and upholstery and hard, non-porous surfaces including tile, stone, wood, laminates and vinyl. When cleaning homes and businesses, Chem-Dry technicians are trained to follow strict safety guidelines recommended by the CDC, including:

  • Wearing medical gloves, shoe covers and facial coverings (when appropriate)
  • Cleaning & applying hospital-grade sanitizer to equipment between jobs
  • Observing safe physical distancing
  • Implementing contactless transactions whenever possible

Chem-Dry creates cleaner, healthier indoor environments with its proprietary equipment and solutions for carpet, upholstery, granite countertops and hard floor surfaces, such as wood, tile and laminates. In further testing of its processes, a study by a leading independent laboratory concluded that the Chem-Dry Hot Carbonating Extraction cleaning method removes an average of 98% of common household allergens from carpets and upholstery and 89% of airborne bacteria when combined with a sanitizer, helping to improve indoor air quality. Chem-Dry has a national partnership with the Indoor Air Quality Association (IAQA), working to raise awareness and provide education on the importance of indoor air quality in maintaining the health and safety of homes and businesses.

Our objective in introducing a sanitizing-centric service is to provide peace of mind to families and employers regarding the safety of where they’re spending major portions of their time as they settle into the new normal.”

“We’re excited about the opportunity for Chem-Dry in Cyprus,” El Zeinaty said. “The economy of Cyprus is based on tourism, as it is the third largest island in the Mediterranean and third most populated, but convenient to Turkey, Greece and Lebanon.  After the COVID-19 outbreak, the standards for cleanliness will be higher than ever before. There’s a great opportunity with hotels, casinos, and homes that will be in need of our services. Our continued expansion in the Mediterranean area positions us to be the number one cleaning company in Cyprus. We will be focusing on flooring, deep cleaning and sanitizing both homes and commercial properties. Our unique approach to cleaning has never been more relevant and we look forward to growing the brand in Cyprus.”

“Chem-Dry is a legacy brand in the United States and around the world,” says Joe Manuszak, Vice President of Global Development. “Our 40 years of success is proof to entrepreneurs and investors that Chem-Dry’s products and services will always be in demand. Chem-Dry continues to help enthusiastic leaders like Camille take their business goals to the next level.”

Cyprus is a land of innovation and growing with recent natural gas reserves, we expect a robust economy for many years,” El Zeinaty said. “Our research proves great opportunity for our products and the customers in Cyprus. We are very excited about this opportunity for Chem-Dry, and we expect to do very well servicing the cleaning and sanitizing needs across the country for both Chem-Dry and those that will partner with us.”

Chem-Dry ‘Cleaning for the PAWS’ Initiative Raises $52,000 Benefitting Best Friends Animal Society

2019-10-02T11:27:50-04:00October 2nd, 2019|Tags: , , , , |

Leading Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning Franchise Strengthens Partnership with Best Friends, Continues Fundraising Initiatives

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — With more than seven million companion animals entering U.S. animal shelters each year, Chem-Dry joined forces with Best Friends Animal Society in 2017 with the launch of its Cleaning for the PAWS initiative. Since the launch of the formal partnership, Chem-Dry and its franchise network have collectively raised more than $52,000 to support shelter pet adoption and help Best Friends in its efforts to find homes for all rescue pets. As Chem-Dry enters another year of the partnership, it seeks to raise an additional $25,000 as it furthers its commitment to creating healthy homes for families and their pets across the nation.

With 85 percent of Chem-Dry’s customers owning pets, the brand is dedicated to this cause. Funds are raised through multiple methods including the sale of specially marked cans of Chem-Dry World Famous Spot Remover – with each can generating a $1 donation to Best Friends – plus customer add-on donations, local promotional offers with a built-in donation, participation in Best Friends’ “Strut your Mutt” events around the country, and direct online donations at Chem-Dry Cares. Chem-Dry franchise owners have participated in the program in a variety of ways and accounted for the roughly 35,000 promotional cans sold to date.

“This cause is near and dear to our hearts and one our entire network can rally behind,” said Dan Tarantin, CEO of Harris Research, Inc., parent company to Chem-Dry. “Pets are beloved members of so many families we serve every day. It’s been truly rewarding to partner with Best Friends and support its mission while educating families and encouraging rescue pet adoption. The sky’s the limit for what’s to come as we continue to strengthen our relationship with the organization.”

New this year, Chem-Dry has teamed up with veterinarian Dr. Kwane Stewart, founder and face of The Street Vet series, to further promote and support rescue pet adoption. As a pet parent himself, Dr. Kwane is an animal advocate who spends his weekends treating pets of the homeless and families in need. He has personally used and is an advocate of Chem-Dry’s line of safe, effective pet and children-friendly products and services including its World Famous Spot Remover and its Pet Urine Removal Treatment (P.U.R.T.®), and is committed to supporting this campaign.

“Bettering the lives of animals through education and awareness is truly my calling,” said Dr. Kwane. “I’m honored to be a voice speaking on their behalf and support Chem-Dry and its Cleaning for the PAWS initiative benefiting Best Friends.”

For more than 30 years, Best Friends has worked to end the killing of pets around the country simply because they don’t have a place to call home. The organization aims to help achieve No Kill across the country by 2025. In an effort to raise funds to help achieve this mission, Best Friends seeks support from companies like Chem-Dry that reaches 7,000 homes and businesses each day with a network of over 2,000 U.S. locations.

Chem-Dry Carpet and Floor Cleaning Announces Lebanon Master Franchise Agreement

2019-09-17T09:56:59-04:00September 17th, 2019|Tags: , , , , |

International carpet-cleaning franchise continues to expand global footprint

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Chem-Dry, the world’s largest carpet and floor cleaning franchise, has signed a Master Franchise agreement for Lebanon with Beirut-based entrepreneurs Maha Hijazi and Camille El Zeinaty.

Hijazi and El Zeinaty are well known in Lebanon’s business community, as they have been providing high-quality cleaning services for more than 20 years. The success of that business spurred their interest in Chem-Dry, Hijazi said. “We have been providing cleaning services for residential and commercial spaces, and Chem-Dry has the systems and processes we need to expand outreach,” she said.

Chem-Dry is the world’s largest carpet, upholstery and hard-surface floor cleaning franchise, with nearly 3,500 franchises serving more than 11,000 homes and businesses a day in more than 55 countries. The innovative Chem-Dry Hot Carbonating Extraction process delivers a faster-drying, deeper and more environmentally friendly clean that appeals to home and business owners in all markets worldwide. Chem-Dry also provides cleaning and renewal services for tile and stone, granite countertops, leather and upholstery, air ducts and dryer vents.

Lebanon joins more than 55 other countries where Chem-Dry has awarded a Master Franchise, where a single franchisee owns the franchising rights to an entire region or country and has the right to develop as many franchise locations as they can in that region.

“We have about 60% of the cleaning market in Beirut, so starting there makes sense for us,” El Zeinaty explained. “Our portfolio is very diverse, and we have cleaned everything from five-star hotels to the United States embassy. In fact, we will be focusing on the new embassy now under construction and we hope to clean that as well with our Chem-Dry franchise.

Eventually they will expand outward in the northern part of the country and will be seeking potential franchise owners at that point. Both say it should be easy to find partners.

“The Lebanese people  enjoy quality furniture and carpets, and so they want to take good care of those investments,” El Zeinaty said. “We believe when they see all that Chem-Dry offers, they will be thrilled to become franchise owners as well as clients.”

“Chem-Dry is a legacy brand in the United States and around the world,” says Joe Manuszak, Vice President of Global Development. “Our 40 years of success is proof to entrepreneurs and investors  that Chem-Dry’s products and services will always be in demand.  Chem-Dry continues to help enthusiastic and talented people like Maha and Camille take their business goals to the next level.”
