How RJB Chem-Dry Started

RJB Chem-Dry is locally owned and operated by Ron, a Tampa resident. After over 30 years of managing quality assurance departments for corporations in the pharmaceutical industry, Ron decided it was time to work for himself. By starting his own Chem-Dry franchise, it appeared that his Masters in Environmental Science had come full circle. Ron’s ultimate goal is to provide families and commercial facilities with cleaner, healthier environments, while also providing his employees with a great work environment. In his free time, Ron enjoys fitness and running, and he loves being out in the Tampa and Clearwater areas.

History of the Chem-Dry Brand

As a young man working his way through law school in the early 1970’s, Robert Harris was a carpet cleaner who was working for someone else. Unhappy with the performance of the cleaning products then available, he began looking for a better solution. His research stretched into years and years of studying the chemical properties of cleaning formulas and years of backbreaking experiments which required cleaning areas of dirty carpets with one formula and then another.

Eventually, he developed a revolutionary carbonated solution that not only cleaned beautifully, but was also safe and non-toxic. With the birth of Chem-Dry in 1977 came self-employment and success. The demand for his cleaning services mushroomed and soon friends and family clamored for his secret. From the first small group of franchises, the Chem-Dry network has grown to thousands of successful franchises around the world. As the Chem-Dry family increases, Robert Harris has seen his own success story repeated by many franchisees.

Now, after more than 45 years, Chem-Dry is ranked the #1 Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning Company in America by Entrepreneur Magazine, with more locations than any other business in the industry! Led by Brand President Ed Quinlan, Chem-Dry continues its mission today of being an innovation leader and helping provide cleaner and healthier homes and workplaces for people around the world.

Chem-Dry is also a member of the BELFOR Franchise Group family of brands, which includes 12 other residential and commercial services franchise brands such as N-Hance Wood Refinishing, redbox+ Dumpsters, 1-800 WATER DAMAGE, The Patch Boys, DUCTZ, HOODZ, and more.
