World’s Largest Floor Cleaning Franchise Continues Expansion
Chem-Dry franchise is now in 46 countries and is seeking master franchise partners in eastern Europe, North Africa and Brazil
NASHVILLE, Tennessee, USA — Chem-Dry, the world’s largest floor cleaning franchise with 3,500 franchises in 46 countries, continues to expand throughout the world. The top-rated floor cleaning franchise has recently partnered with master franchises to bring the brand to Spain, Ghana, Egypt and France. Now the company is seeking entrepreneurs in Poland, Turkey, Germany, Morocco, Brazil and Czech Republic.
“Chem-Dry has been Entrepreneur magazine’s top-rated floor cleaning franchise for more than two decades, and we’ve helped franchisees create thriving businesses since 1977 — in the United States and around the world,” said Joe Manuszak, Director of International Development. “Our proprietary equipment and solutions allow our business partners to offer a level of service that is untouchable, and that wins them clients.”
Chem-Dry uses all-natural, Green-Certified cleaning solutions and patented equipment to clean a wide array of floor surfaces such as rugs, carpet, stone and tile, as well as other surfaces including upholstery and drapes, serving the residential and commercial markets.
Chem-Dry’s service lines up with key consumer trends, offering a unique approach and a powerful business model:
Green, Eco-Friendly, Healthy: Chem-Dry’s hot carbonating extraction method uses 80% less water than steam cleaning, so it’s better for the environment. And its primary cleaning solution, The Natural®, is Green-Certified and does not contain phosphates or detergents, making it safe and nontoxic for kids and pets. In contrast, steam cleaning uses soaps and detergents that can leave behind a residue that can trigger allergies and attract dirt, and the excessive water used in steam cleaning creates a breeding ground for mold and mildew. Chem-Dry recently commissioned a leading independent air quality laboratory to study the effect of our hot carbonating extraction process on reducing allergens and bacteria within homes. The lab found that our franchisees remove an average of 98.1% of common household allergens from the carpets and upholstery they clean. The study also showed that our cleaning process, when combined with a sanitizer, eliminates 89% of the airborne bacteria in homes. The study was conducted in a cross-section of consumer homes in the U.S. and internationally, and the common household allergens tested were cat and dog dander and dust mites.
A Trusted Brand: Chem-Dry has built a reputation as a trusted, respected brand due to outstanding products, such as its Pet Urine & Odor Removal (P.U.R.T.) treatment, which is formulated not to mask scents but to attack the chemical bonds that cause dried urine crystals to cling to surfaces, destroying the source of the stain and smell. Chem-Dry also uses a range of solutions to clean tile and stone floors, returning them to like-new condition; has achieved the highest customer satisfaction and customer repeat levels in the industry; and has been Entrepreneur magazine’s top-rated floor surface cleaning franchise for 27 years in a row.
Superior Technology, Training: Since 1977, Chem-Dry has been committed to research and development, which has enabled it to develop proprietary solutions and patented equipment that are the foundation of their franchisees’ business.
To achieve our expansion, Chem-Dry also offers a conversion program for existing businesses that are interested in becoming part of a growing global brand. For more information, visit www.chemdryfranchise.com/international.
