When it comes to choosing between carpet cleaning franchise opportunities on the market, how do they compare to each other? Let’s look at the top 3: Stanley Steemer, Chem-Dry & ZEROREZ®.
Can you hear their jingle in your head- “Stanley Steemer gets carpets cleaner!” But, do they?
Stanley Steemer has been in operation since 1947 and now has over 300 locations in 48 states. They have been certified by many third party organizations that customers look for when selecting a carpet cleaning company. One of these certifications is a platinum rating from the Carpet and Rug Institute. Stanley uses hot water extraction as their primary method of cleaning along with several types of detergents/shampoos. Due to the usage of these chemicals, Stanley technicians use more water to extract them, making their dry times longer than other companies. The use of chemicals in the cleaning process also leaves soil attracting residue in the fibers of the carpet, which makes the carpets appear dirtier faster.
Chem-Dry markets themselves as the “cleaner, drier, healthier way to clean carpets.” Chem-Dry began in 1977 and has over 3,000 franchises worldwide. They have also received a platinum rating from the Carpet & Rug Institute, and offer carpet cleaning franchise opportunities in 34 states. Chem-Dry’s unique method of cleaning uses hot carbonated water to lift soils from the carpet instead of relying on toxic chemicals found in soaps or detergents. This system uses less water, and requires less dry times. Chem-Dry does not offer online scheduling, and is one of the most expensive carpet cleaning companies for a consumer.
