FAQS


Q WHAT IS CHEM-DRY?
A Chem-Dry is a totally new cleaning method which uses CO2 to produce millions of sparkly, effervescent carbonated bubbles which quickly penetrate each carpet fiber, dissolving dirt, grease and pet stains in seconds. Acting as tiny propellants, these bubbles actually lift dirt to the surface for extraction.
   
Q CAN OTHER CLEANING METHODS ACTUALLY HURT MY CARPETS?
A Yes! The sticky residues from shampoo never really dry. Instead, they cling to every carpet fiber, actually attracting more dust and soil. Thus, shampooed carpets resoil very quickly. “Steam and water” extraction (steam cleaning) can cause carpets to rot or mildew because of excessive drying time. And the extreme flooding of carpets so common with these methods can utterly destroy the jute backing on fine carpet. Such flooding can also damage hardwood floors beneath the carpeting, making them wrap.
   
Q DOES CHEM-DRY USE EXCESSIVE AMOUNTS OF WATER AS IN STEAMCLEANING METHODS?
A No! With Chem-Dry, your carpets dry in minutes and the high concentration of CO2 eliminates the need for massive amounts of water used in other processes. With Chem-Dry, there is no threat of shrinkage, mildew, rot or floor damage.
   
Q WILL MY CARPETS STAY CLEANER LONGER WITH CHEM-DRY?
A Yes! One of the greatest qualities of the Chem-Dry method is that it is free of sticky residues. Once soil, grease and stains are removed, the solution evaporates. Since crystal clear CO2 is the dirt releasing agent, rather than soaps or harsh chemicals, there are no sticky residues left in your carpets to attract dirt. Laboratory tests show that carpets cleaned the Chem-Dry way actually stay clean longer than factory fresh carpets.
   
Q HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO CLEAN MY CARPETS BY THE CHEM- DRY METHOD?
A Carpets cleaned by the Chem-Dry process usually dry completely in 60 minutes. Because the Chem-Dry method takes minutes to dry compared to the hours with shampoo or steam methods, furniture can be moved into cleaned areas almost immediately. The entire process is faster than any other method. It usually takes less than two hours to clean carpets in an average size house.
   
Q IS CHEM-DRY EXPENSIVE?
A No! The Chem-Dry method is so quick and efficient that our surveys show that most of our businesses are able to charge a comparable price to other companies using inferior methods. With Chem-Dry, your carpets stay cleaner longer – and that’s an added savings!
