Let’s Hear From The Owners


Hi, my name is Bradley Mackay

In 2013 my wife and I found out we were going to be parents, so finding a great job that myself and my new family could depend on was very important. In 2014 I found exactly that when I became an employee at Chem-Dry of the Kawartha’s. I quickly realized what a wholesome and rewarding company it was, providing customers with reliable, quality service. It wasn’t long before I wanted to further my career with Chem-Dry. I have always known one day I wanted to work for myself, and taking over such a well established, successful company that puts customer satisfaction and excellent service seemed like a very smart choice.

In 2016 my partner and I began the process of becoming owners. We have learned many valuable lessons over this process and I look forward to the opportunities and challenge that being an owner brings. If I’m not working, I am usually spending time with my wife and our two young sons. But when I’m not chasing around my 1 and 3 year old, I enjoy working on vehicles, and doing target practice with my friends.


Hey there I’m Gerrit Van Halteren.

A little bit about me… I have always been known as a hardworking, enthusiastic, and a friendly person. Growing up in Lindsay Ontario watching my family run, own, and operate their own music store from an early age gave me the drive to want to be a entrepreneur and inspired my passion for family and music.

After working for Chem-Dry of the Kawartha’s for several years I knew I had found a product and service I could stand behind 100%. When the opportunity arose I did not hesitate to take over this well established business with my good friend and co-worker Bradley Mackay
