Carpet Cleaning Business



We started out in 1977 with the goal of becoming a green alternative to traditional carpet cleaning. We use our company patented products and extensive experience in the industry to make people’s homes and workplaces healthier as we clean more spaces than any other company. Our brand has a $3.8 billion market share in home carpet cleaning and our distinguished franchise owners are dedicated to providing top-notch service. The American carpet cleaning industry is substantial and experiencing growth along with the population:

Carpet Cleaning Franchise Stats

  • It has a historic growth rate of approximately five percent annually and is expected to gross $4.4 billion in 2015.
  • Chem-Dry is the nation’s largest carpet cleaning franchise and is based in Logan, Utah and Nashville, Tennessee.
  • We have more than 3,500 franchises that use the company’s patented products around the globe and have the advantage of more than 35 years of experience.
  • There is a good deal of untapped market potential in this industry. Every year 14 billion square feet of new carpet is installed in the United States and all of it requires regular cleaning.

And that’s just in the U.S. Canada’s 13.3 million households add up to a market about 10 percent of the size of the U.S., which equals roughly 1.4 billion more square feet of carpet installed every single year. Our unique cleaning process involves the use of hot carbonated water extraction to eliminate dust, dirt, oils and allergens in carpet fibers as well as other types of surfaces. This process allows carpets to dry more quickly and remain cleaner and healthier for longer than any other method. This gives us an edge in the industry and we are proud to carry the seal of approval for our process from the Carpet and Rug Institute.
