BENEFITS OF CHOOSING CHEM-DRY OF DES MOINES
Benefits of Choosing Chem-Dry of Des Moines
First time I have used Chem-Dry! Happy with service and cleaning! Down time for drying is great! Norwalk owner! Support local!!!
I have been using Chem-Dry for several years. Matt and Gretchen are wonderful to work with. Gretchen answers all my questions and makes scheduling a cleaning super easy. From cleaning/sanitizing the carpets before a new baby to dealing with an elderly, diabetic dog they have been there for us! Matt does a great job with the cleaning and shows us where the problem areas are and what needs done. It is always such a relief to have clean/fresh carpets when they are done! We highly recommend Chem-Dry!
Matthew was excellent to work with. I closed on a house late Friday afternoon. He met me for the final walk through with my realtor, I left him there, and he cleaned the carpets while I went to closing. He was easy to work with, very responsive to questions and messages, and did an excellent job cleaning the carpet in my new home.
Frequently Asked Questions
How does Chem-Dry compare to steam cleaning?
Traditional steam cleaning often soaks carpets with an excessive amount of water filled with soaps and detergents. Carpets are then wet for 1-2 days, which creates a breeding ground for mold, mildew, and dust. Plus the soapy residue left behind attracts dirt and causes your carpets to get dirty much faster.
On the other hand, Chem-Dry of Des Moines’s process is very different. We need only a fraction of the water that typical steam cleaners use and instead rely on millions of microscopic bubbles to explode dirt from deep in your carpet fibers. We can then quite easily extract the dirt and moisture from the carpet.

How do you remove pet urine odor from carpets?
Pet odors can linger for months if not treated properly. As urine dries in the carpet and padding, what’s left are millions of concentrated urine crystals that become even more pungent. Many companies just mask this odor. Chem-Dry uses a patented system, P.U.R.T.® (Pet Urine Removal Treatment), to explode the urine crystals and break down the enzymes which gets rid of the pet urine odor forever.
Will my carpets re-soil quickly after the cleaning is finished?
Not with Chem-Dry of Des Moines. Many carpet cleaners including steam cleaners use soaps and detergents in their process. These soaps leave behind sticky residue that attracts dirt, leading to carpets re-soiling quickly after JUST being cleaned and often requires more frequent professional cleanings. At Chem-Dry of Des Moines, we use a natural, biodegradable carpet and upholstery cleaning solution that doesn’t contain any soaps, detergents or harsh chemicals, so it won’t leave any sticky or dirt-attracting residue.
How long will it take for my carpet to dry completely?
Drying time depends on humidity levels, airflow to the room(s) cleaned, and the type of carpet. In general, turning on your air conditioning or fans will help accelerate dry times. After a professional cleaning, it typically takes 1-2 hours for the carpet to dry. Sometimes carpets can take longer to dry for various reasons.
Should I vacuum before you arrive?
This is not necessary. Our professionally trained technicians will vacuum your carpets with our commercial, HEPA-filtered vacuum when they arrive as a standard part of our service.
What is considered a room?
Our room sizes are based on 150 sq ft. If any of your rooms are over 150 sq ft, there may be an additional area charge. Hallways and stairs are considered to be separate from a room.
