History of the Chem-Dry Brand

Working his way through law school in the 1970’s, Robert Harris labored as a carpet cleaner working for a different carpet cleaning company. Becoming dissatisfied with the performance of available cleaning products, he began researching a better solution. Harris’ research stretched into many years of studying various chemical properties and reactions of cleaning formulas. With experimentation that required him to continually clean carpets with a succession of cleaning formulations. A process quite similar to how Einstein tried a hundred times to invent the light bulb before he succeeded.

Eventually, Robert Harris discovered the ideal cleaning formula. His unique carbonated solution delivered exceptional results and was also safe and non-toxic. Harris founded Chem-Dry 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. The Chem-Dry network has expanded over recent decades to offer thousands of successful franchises throughout the world, including Green Leaf Chem-Dry based out of Olympia, WA.


We provide superior residential and commercial carpet, upholstery, and tile cleaning services throughout Pierce County, Washington including Dupont, Steilacoom, Tacoma, Spanaway, Lakewood, Puyallup, and the surrounding areas.
