N-Hance Wood Renewal was started by Harris Research Inc, the company behind Chem-Dry Carpet Cleaning. In the early 2000’s, many Chem-Dry franchise owners were realising their technicians were walking across thousands of damaged wood floors. N-Hance began as a separate franchise business to refinish and renew hardwood floors and has grown to include refinishing cabinetry, furniture and trim work.
Through innovative research and development, Chem-Dry has incorporated simple and effective processes that anyone can do. N-Hance was created with those same principles in mind: innovation, simplicity and efficient methods.
Chem-Dry had over 20 years of franchise and business experience before N-Hance was developed. This proved to be a great advantage to N-Hance because it had less of a learning curve and was able to avoid the “we-wish-we-would-haves” that often accompany starting a new business.
Beta-franchises were launched in the Salt Lake area in the US from 2001 to 2003. They quickly realised that many companies can sand the finish completely off the floors and refinish them, but very few offer the broad line of products that coincide with other finishes and cleaners. In 2006, N-Hance was launched on a national level. They have learned a lot since then and have developed a proven system that creates successful people, satisfied customers and what can only be called, simply good businesses.
