The Difference Between Chem-Dry and Other Carpet Cleaning Methods.

Chem-Dry uses the Natural® Chem-Dry’s patented system uses a unique, hot-carbonating process and a naturally based cleaning solution that is safe and non-toxic. The system employs a combination of heat and carbonation to help breakdown dirt deeply embedded in carpet or upholstery fibres. Millions of tiny effervescent bubbles lift the dirt to the surface, allowing it to be easily cleaned away rather than becoming further embedded into the fabric.

Chem-Dry’s secret lies in our cleaning process, which breaks the chemical bond certain elements form with carpet fibres, to fully remove stains without the use of chemicals or detergents. Our patented cleaning solution, The Natural®, is a simple carbon dioxide and water solution that derives its effectiveness from an understanding of chemistry and how it can be used to get stains out of carpets and other surfaces.

The Chem-Dry cleaning process also requires only one fifth of the water needed for steam cleaning and negates the risk of mould or mildew forming in between carpet fibres, while the cleaning process itself is much more gentle and suitable for delicate carpet fibres.

What is more, carbonation naturally tends to form a protective barrier of carbonate residue on the surface of the cleaned carpet that resists dirt as it doesn’t offer bonding sites for most soils.

As long as carpets are cleaned regularly they should act as filters to keep allergens under control in homes and workplaces which all adds up to an outstanding business opportunity for Chem-Dry franchisees as our green cleaning induces customers to pay a little extra for healthy products and services – resulting in better revenue for franchisees.

Companies such as Chem-Dry, who are constantly searching for ways to make their processes safer and more effective are therefore in an excellent position to tap into this growing and profitable market.
