Chem-Dry is Your Trusted Partner in Removing Allergens and Bacteria From Your Home or Office

Carpets as well as area rugs and upholstery act as giant filters, trapping allergens and bacteria and keeping them out of the air we breathe.  But, just like an air filter, carpets become saturated over time and must be properly cleaned to remain most effective at trapping particulates as they settle from the air.  This is especially important for the 1 in 5 Americans (roughly 60 million) living with allergies or asthma.  You can ensure healthier indoor air in your home or office by keeping your carpets clean and in good condition through regular vacuuming and having your carpets, rugs, and upholstery professionally cleaned every 6 – 12 months to rid your home or office of common allergens and bacteria.  If you have small children or pets you may need to have your carpets cleaned once a quarter to ensure a healthy living environment.

Tested and Proven

The average American spends 90% of their time indoors.  Having a healthy indoor environment is critical to maintaining a healthy lifestyle.  However, not all carpet cleaning services are alike.  Chem-Dry commissioned a leading air quality laboratory to conduct a study using Chem-Dry’s Hot Carbonated Extraction (HCE) process in multiple homes and offices.  The lab found that Chem-Dry removes an average of 98.1% of common household allergens from the carpets and upholstery that we clean.  The common allergens we tested included car and dog dander and well as dust mile allergen.

Removing Bacteria, Improving Indoor Air Quality

Indoor air quality is a significant home health concern because the average home harbors about 200,000 bacteria for every square inch of carpet!  As bacteria builds up, the bacteria lurking in your carpets get stirred up and circulates in the air your family is breathing unless you clean it.  Chem-Dry carpet cleaning is not only effective at removing the bacteria from the carpets we clean but it also improves the air quality in your home.  The same leading independent air quality laboratory found that, when adding sanitizer to our HCE carpet cleaning process, we remove an average of 89% of the bacteria in the air and 82.3% of the bacteria from carpets and upholstery!
