History of the Chem-Dry Brand

Robert Harris started working his way through law school in the 1970s as a carpet cleaner working for a different carpet cleaning company. He quickly became unsatisfied with the performance of available cleaning products and began researching a better solution. 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. 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 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. Now, after more than 40 years, the Chem-Dry network includes thousands of successful franchises throughout the world, including Alamo Chem-Dry based in San Antonio, Texas. Chem-Dry is the world’s leading upholstery and carpet cleaner as ranked by Entrepreneur Magazine more than 25 years in a row as the #1 in the category.
