Carpets, as well as area rugs and upholstered furniture, 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 full over time and must be properly cleaned to remain most effective at trapping particulates as they settle from the air. 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 upholstery professionally cleaned every 12-18 months to rid your home of common allergens and bacteria.
Chem-Dry is your trusted partner in removing allergens and bacteria from your home. All of us, 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 a Chem-Dry cleaning 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 allergens.
Indoor air quality is also a significant home health concern because the average home harbours 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. A 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 removed an average of 89% of the bacteria in the air and 82.3% of the bacteria from carpets.
At Chem-Dry, we want you to breathe easier about the healthfulness of your home and your family. Whether you suffer from allergies or asthma or you just want to provide the healthiest home for your family, a Chem-Dry carpet cleaning can help you remove the allergens and bacteria hiding in your home and improve your indoor air quality. Because Chem-Dry cleans for your health like no one else, contact a Chem-Dry carpet cleaner in your local area to ensure a safe and healthy home environment for your family.
When searching for a quality carpet cleaning company, keep in mind that not all carpet cleaning services are created equal. There are several key factors that separate a high-quality carpet cleaning process that delivers a healthier cleaning for your carpets and home from one that drenches your carpets with gallons of water and harsh cleaners. These factors explain why Chem-Dry’s unique hot carbonating extraction system offers a deeper, faster drying, healthier carpet cleaning experience than typical steam cleaning services.
Traditional steam cleaning saturates your carpet with an excessive amount of water filled with soaps and detergents. So you’re left with wet carpets for 1-2 days, which creates a breeding ground for mould, mildew and bacteria. Plus the soapy residue left behind attracts dirt and causes your carpets to get dirty much faster.
Chem-Dry’s process is different. We employ millions of microscopic bubbles to explode dirt from deep in your carpet fibres, which is why we only need to use a fraction of the water that typical steam cleaning uses. After the carbonation releases and lifts the dirt, our high-powered equipment extracts the dirt and moisture from the carpet.
