Chem-Dry Carpet Drapery & Upholstery Cleaning
Working his way through law school cleaning carpets, Robert Harris probably didn’t imagine that he’d stay in the cleaning business for the rest of his life. He made a fateful decision, however, to see if he could improve upon the mediocre formulas used by the companies he had worked for. Harris’ method worked beautifully, and his services were soon in high demand. He started Chem-Dry in 1977 and was franchising the following year. There are more than 3,600 Chem-Dry outfits in the U.S. and internationally today. Since 2006, Chem-Dry has operated under The Home Depot brand.
