It’s not hard to figure out why Chem-Dry is chosen by over 10,000 households every day and cleans over one billion square feet of carpet every year. We’ve worked hard to become one of the most trusted names in carpet cleaning worldwide, and it’s all thanks to our dedication to excellent customer service and our unique cleaning method.
Chem-Dry’s proprietary cleaning method, Hot Carbonating Extraction (HCE), was developed with a few goals in mind: offer our customers a deeper clean that lasts longer, dries faster, and leaves you with an overall healthier home. We’re proud to say that HCE accomplishes all of those goals and more.
Your typical steam cleaning service will use gallons and gallons of water filled with soap, detergent, and harsh chemicals to get your carpets clean. After steam cleaners are done, your carpets will be soaking wet and will need to be left alone for days on end to dry completely. Chem-Dry’s HCE method uses 80% less water than steam cleaning, so your carpets will be dry in just two hours or less.
HCE is able to use so much less water than steam cleaning because we put the cleaning power of carbonation to work. The HCE method uses millions of tiny bubbles to penetrate deep into the layers of your carpet and lifts dirt, dust, allergens, and bacteria to the very surface so our powerful extraction
equipment can whisk it all away. By using a fraction of the water, your carpets will dry in a fraction of the time while still giving you a deeper, longer lasting carpet clean.
DRIER. The heated carbonation used in Chem-Dry’s carpet cleaning method is so powerful that we’re able to use 80% less water than typical steam cleaning services. Not only will you be left with cleaner carpets, but they’ll be completely dry in just two hours or less. With steam cleaning, you could be waiting multiple days for them to dry.
CLEANER. Chem-Dry’s HCE carpet cleaning method gets deeper into the individual fibers of your carpet than other methods. Dirt, dust, bacteria, and allergens that are trapped inside your carpet will be lifted to the surface, so our extraction equipment can get rid of it all. Plus, since our cleaning solution is all-natural, you won’t be left with a sticky, dirt-attracting residue on your carpets after cleaning, so they’ll stay cleaner longer.
HEALTHIER. Our low-water cleaning method dramatically reduces the risk of mold and mildew forming under your carpets during a long dry time. Chem-Dry uses our own all-natural, green-certified cleaner instead of relying on the soap, detergent, enzymes, and harsh chemicals like other carpet cleaning services do. Our cleaner only contains all-natural ingredients and is completely non-toxic, making it safe to use in homes with kids and pets. A study conducted by an independent laboratory also found that the Chem-Dry carpet cleaning method removes an average of 98% of common household allergens from carpets and upholstery and 89% of the airborne bacteria in your home when a sanitizer is added.
Our HCE Process is Tested & Proven to Remove Allergens and Bacteria
When it comes to carpet cleaning, we know that there are nearly limitless choices out there. However, it’s important to know that carpet cleaning services are not all the same. Chem-Dry wanted an objective third-party to conduct a scientific study on the effectiveness of the Chem-Dry HCE cleaning method in multiple homes to show our customers that our method is the best choice for a healthy home. A leading independent laboratory found that Chem-Dry’s HCE process removes an average of 98% of common household allergens – like pet dander and dust mite allergens – from carpets and upholstery and an average of 89% of airborne bacteria from your home with a sanitizer is added. Chem-Dry not only leaves you with beautiful, vibrant carpets but an overall healthier home.
