Getting Started

The Power of Hot Carbonated Water Extraction

We use an organic method of hot carbonated water extraction to attack dirt, dust, oils and allergens in carpet fibres and on hard surfaces. Our carpets dry more quickly and stay cleaner and healthier for longer than any other cleaning method; we’re proud that the Carpet & Rug Institute has given our process its Seal of Approval.

Through the power of carbonation, Chem-Dry can increase the longevity of your carpet and often can help keep your carpet warranty in compliance. Hot water extraction doesn’t work only on carpet, it works just as well on upholstery and tile, and our franchisees excel at pet stain removal, Oriental rug cleaning, and water damage repair and restoration work.

Chem-Dry technicians get the job done and look and act professional while doing it. Carpet cleaning is a fractured industry with thousands of fly-by-night vendors with varying levels of trustworthiness, training and levels of professionalism. People are understandably careful about letting workers into their homes.

Chem-Dry is a trusted brand, with and enviable reputation within the industry. has the best and most trustworthy reputation within the industry.
