About E & L Chem Dry
E & L Chem-Dry is locally owned & operated by Lynden Smith. Originally from Nassau, Bahamas, Lynden loves all things beach & sea-related. He started in the cleaning industry as a bit of a skeptic. He was initially hired in 1995 as a management trainee with a company that specialized in commercial cleaning. His first account was a community college in Tampa, FL. Eventually, Lynden decided to start his own small business in 2001 cleaning restaurants and office buildings. He joined the Chem-Dry family of franchise owners in 2017 after substantial research that led him to realize that Chem-Dry was the clear leader in the carpet cleaning industry.

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 many different carpet cleaning company. He eventually became unsatisfied with the results from the available cleaning products and began researching a better solution. Harris’ research consisted of many years of studying the chemical properties and reactions of a variety of cleaning formulas. Combined with continual experimentation, he was required to clean carpets with a succession of many cleaning formulations. This is comparable to how Einstein tried to build the perfect light bulb 100 times 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 E & L Chem-Dry right here in Hollywood, FL.
