Green Certified Cleaning
GREEN Carpet Cleaners in Des Moines
Every cleaning solution you use ends up back in our environment, whether it’s through being thrown out, released into the air, or carried out on your shoes. We wouldn’t put soaps, detergents, phosphates or other harsh chemicals directly in our air, lakes, streams or forests–so why add them to your carpets? At Chem-Dry of Des Moines, we believe in sustainability and have worked toward offering a Green solution to carpet cleaning for the past two decades.
Chem-Dry’s flagship cleaning solution, The Natural®, uses natural ingredients and is on the FDA’s G.R.A.S. list; however, our dedication to being Green and sustainable doesn’t stop there. Our cleaning processes uses one-fifth the amount of the water that steam cleaners use, helping to ensure a healthier, Greener home.
