Carpet Cleaning

A Healthy Home with Chem-Dry

Carpets as well as area rugs and upholstered furniture act as giant filters, trapping allergens and bacteria that in turn keep them out of the air we breathe. But, just like an air filter, carpets become full 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 by keeping your carpets clean and in good condition through regular vacuuming and having your carpets, rugs and upholstered items professionally cleaned every 3 – 4 months to rid your home of common allergens and bacteria.

Tested and Proven Superior Results

Removing Allergens from Your Home

All of us, and particularly those who suffer from allergies and disorders like asthma, are greatly impacted by indoor air quality and the amount of allergens and bacteria trapped in our homes that can trigger an attack. Considering that and the fact that we spend an average of 90% of our time indoors, professional carpet cleaning serves an important function in the health of your home and your family.
However; not all carpet cleaning services are alike. To find out how big an impact our cleaning methods can have on home health, we thought it would be helpful to measure how effective our cleaning process is in eliminating unhealthy and unwanted elements from your home. So we commissioned a leading independent air quality laboratory to conduct a study using Chem-Dry’s Hot Carbonating Extraction (HCE) process in multiple homes. The lab found that Chem-Dry removes an average of 98.1% of common household allergens from the carpets and upholstery we clean. The common allergens we tested include cat and dog dander and dust mite allergen.

Removing Bacteria, Improving Indoor Air Quality

Indoor air quality is also a significant home health concern because the average home harbors about 200,000 bacteria for every square inch of carpet. As the bacteria builds up, the bacteria lurking in your carpets gets stirred up and circulates in the air your family is breathing unless you clean it. Our Chem-Dry carpet cleaning method 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 removed an average of 89% of the bacteria in the air and 82.3% of the bacteria from carpets.
