Green Planet Chem-Dry

I’m Chris Rogers and along with my wife Marcela, we own and run Green Planet Chem-Dry. We have two kids, our 12-year-old son and 2-year-old daughter, who keep us busy! I’m originally from England and moved here 18 years ago when I met my wife while on holiday. After a long-distance relationship we decided to give it a go and have been going strong ever since. I worked in real estate and as a DJ, having DJ’d many years in England, while my wife worked as an advertising producer. We started our company in an effort to spend more time with our kids and because of them, we were passionate about using healthier products and wanted to help fellow families and Angelenos maintain a cleaner, healthier home and workplace. We love going to concerts at the Bowl, the Festival of Books, playing piano in our living room, and going for walks and hikes around the neighborhood.

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.
