The Background of CJ’s Chem-Dry

Jim and Susanna were both raised right here in the suburbs of Anoka and Hennepin County, Minnesota; our parents set the best example of quality workmanship, efficient reliability, and impeccable detail. We are dedicated to the same standard and love that our boys Colton, Cameron, and Connor grew up in our business and still enjoy working with us.

We love cleaning and specifically chose the Chem-Dry brand because it is safe for our environment, non-toxic for people and pets, and cleans like no other! During our downtime, we enjoy our family, hiking, camping, kayaking, and many other outdoor adventures. We are dedicated to providing an outstanding cleaning experience and will treat your home and family with the respect you deserve.

Chem-Dry 40 Years of Experience GraphicThe History of the Chem-Dry Brand

Robert Harris started working his way through law school in the 1970’s as a carpet cleaner working for a different carpet cleaning company. He quickly became unsatisfied with the performance of available cleaning products and began researching a better solution. Harris’ research stretched into many years of studying the chemical properties and reactions of a variety of cleaning formulas combined with experimentation that required him to continually clean carpets with a succession of cleaning formulations. The process was similar to how Edison tried a hundred times to build the perfect light bulb before he succeeded.

Eventually, Robert Harris discovered the ideal cleaning formula. His unique carbonated solution delivered exceptional cleaning and was also safe and non-toxic. Harris founded Chem-Dry and soon the demand for his superior cleaning services grew exponentially. His entrepreneurial journey blossomed into a thriving success that has continued to grow since those first days in the early 70’s. From the very first small group of franchise locations, the original Chem-Dry network has expanded over recent decades to offer thousands of successful franchises throughout the world, including CJ’s Chem-Dry based in Anoka County and Hennepin County, Minnesota.
