The Science of Chem-Dry’s Cleaning

How Does Chem-Dry Get Carpets So Clean?

We believe customers deserve faster drying times and healthier homes.

Every aspect of Chem-Dry’s unique cleaning process is backed by science. We believe customers deserve faster drying times and healthier homes. Our proprietary cleaning solutions and equipment make this a reality and set us apart from other carpet cleaning businesses around the globe. This did not happen by chance but because we have put decades of research into the healthiest and most effective ways of removing dirt, stains, and debris in the home.

The Chem-Dry Difference

The Chem-Dry Customer Experience

But how does all this cleaning technology get conveyed to the customer? Chem-Dry Franchisees are equipped with some powerful information and case study results to share with their customers. For instance, franchisees regularly impress customers by sharing how Chem-Dry removes 98% of allergens from carpets and upholstery as well as 89% of airborne bacteria. Customers will also be able to feel, smell, and touch the difference we make in the cleanliness of their homes. They are consistently amazed by our fast-drying times of 1-2 hours compared to 1-2 days. Finally, Chem-Dry technology keeps home cleaner for longer, adding to the value of the service for customers including greater peace of mind.

Our Process Delivers a Cleaner Clean

Nearly 40 years of superior results speak for themselves. The process starts with our Hot Carbonating Extraction process, which clumps and brings out dirt and debris through an emulsification process that’s right out of a chemist’s (or a germaphobe’s) dream. Chem-Dry’s highly effective cleaning methods are directly responsible for us repeatedly being ranked as the top carpet cleaning franchise in the world. We have a long history of continual innovation which continues to this day.

Meet the Natural®

Our Proprietary Cleaning Solution

Speaking of innovation, the Natural, our core cleaning solution was specially designed to deliver a deeper clean and faster drying times for carpets, rugs, and upholstery. The Natural got its name both because similar ingredients can all be found in nature and because it has an innate skill for trapping and removing dirt.

We excluded all detergents, soaps and harsh chemicals when developing The Natural and yet it still fights dirt harder than most chemical-based carpet cleaners. Carbonation and chemistry combine to actually explode dirt away from carpeting which even helps carpets stay cleaner for longer.

An Eco Green Cleaning Solution

Today, more people are environmentally conscious than ever before. Chem-Dry fills the needs of customers who demand an eco-friendly solution to cleaning their homes. We use green certified cleaners and make sure the environment is a key consideration in each decision we make. The ability to use 80% less water than traditional carpet cleaning methods also means there is less waste during the cleaning process. Chem-Dry franchisees can have confidence when selling to environmentally aware customers knowing their offering will meet their needs whether that’s carpet cleaning, pet stain, and odour removal, grout cleaning or any number of our services. The customers’ expectations will be met with the lowest environmental impact possible.

How Does Chem-Dry Get Carpets So Clean?

The ability to use less water when cleaning in the home has several advantages. The most noticeable one is much faster drying times. Chem-Dry helps families get back to enjoying their homes in 1-2 hours instead of 1-2 days because who wants to wait multiple days after a cleaning just to walk on their carpets again?

But a dryer carpet cleaning method has several health benefits as well. Some carpet cleaning methods such as steam cleaning can push too much water too deep into carpets which creates the perfect breeding ground for mould, mildew, and bacteria, things families don’t want around their children or pets.
