Chem-Dry History

Robert Harris
Robert Harris

This Chem-Dry location is independently owned and operated.

Chem-Dry is more than just a carpet cleaning solution. It is much more than a unique process or even a growing franchise system. Chem-Dry is really a true "Horatio Alger" story, the tale of a determined and energetic American Entrepreneur named Robert Harris.

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 found his formula, a revolutionary carbonated solution that not only cleaned beautifully, but was also safe and non-toxic. With the birth of Chem-Dry 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.

Derek and Kristin Acker moved to Wichita, Kansas in August of 2002 from Denver, Colorado where they trained for 2 years before buying their own franchise in Kansas. They wanted to live in a place close to home yet out on their own. They had 2 small children at the time and have added 2 more kids and a dog since then. Wichita has proved to be a great place to raise a family and a great place to run a Chem-Dry franchise. They have had several close friends work with them and currently even have a family member, Robbin, as the office manager. They have made several friends through customers and are very grateful for the wonderful support and referrals they receive. They are very excited for the new Water Damage Restoration Division that has been added on! Remember us in those times of emergency! They look forward to many more years cleaning Wichita's carpets, one carpet at a time!
