Because of the surplus amount of water and detergents that regular steam cleaners use, you will be stuck with damp carpets for 1-2 days. This creates a breeding ground for bacteria, mold, and mildew. Not just that, but the crunchy or gluey residue left behind will bring in debris and allow your carpets to quickly go back to their grubby condition.

We use a lot of effervescent bubbles to unlock dirt and grime deep within the carpet’s fibers and bring them to the exterior so our machines can extract them away. We use about 1/5th of the water that a lot of steam cleaners use a result of the functionality of our approach.

Our low-moisture process doesn’t use the excessive volumes of water to soak through to the carpet backing and develop a breeding ground for bacteria, mold, and mildew. The same risks that come with steam cleaning won’t lead to a danger when you use Excel Chem-Dry. We can provide you with a more useful and healthier cleaning possibility. Your carpets will not just stay cleaner longer, but dry faster to help you return to your daily life in no time. The Chem-Dry approach is unparalleled.

What sorts of bacteria have been brought to your household?

Hopefully you haven't had any raccoon burglars sneaking in by way of your pet's entrance, but it's unimaginable to keep on top of everything that comes in contact with the home. It is very important to sanitize your upholstery and carpets routinely. It's especially recommended to sanitize residences with little ones and domestic pets.

Over time, the edges of the carpet following the wall become marked. These areas are classified as filtration lines which are especially noticeable on light-colored carpeting.

How did I get filtration lines?

You could think it is the incapacity to be able to properly vacuum the edges, but this is only one part of the issue. Ventilation is allowed within the small breaks between the panels and this is not possible to stop even in the most well-built households. A change in the temperature or pressure variations in the home presses air below walls and doors. Any dust that the air might be carrying gets trapped in the carpet fibers while it goes through the breaks among the planks, the carpet being a filter. Over time, these very small contaminants gather, soiling and darkening your carpeting.

How do I get rid of filtration lines?

Without any suitable devices, it is tough to rid your residence of filtration lines. Deep cleaning, agitation, and the best suited cleaning solution are the important factors to reduce the dark corners. As specialists, at Excel Chem-Dry we're well trained to clear out your filtration line worries. After breaking apart the oil, dirt, and grime debris which are kept in carpeting fibers, our powerful, yet delicate, equipment will pull out the filth entirely. Your house should stay cleaner much longer because we steer clear of solutions that may dump any dirt attracting residue.

Your home or business will benefit by calling on the experts at Excel Chem-Dry to skillfully clean the carpets. There's no need to postpone any longer, call or click for substantially cleaner carpets!

There are various types of carpet cleaning companies to choose from - steam cleaners, carpet shampoo solutions, vacuum cleaning and more, but Chem-Dry utilizes the industry's best, most effective methods of home carpet cleaning By utilizing the power of carbonation in our unique solutions, we have pioneered an entirely new way of cleaning that allows us to make your carpets look and feel like new again.

Anyone who has poured a carbonated drink into a glass knows that carbonation rises to the top. Because carbonation has natural “lifting” properties, these bubbles will always rise to the top of your glass. With this knowledge, Chem-Dry has created a carbonated solution that gets deep into your carpet fibers and explodes and releases the dirt. By establishing this reaction, our carbonated formula makes all these unnatural particles to the top of your carpets, where they are then cleaned away using hot water. The most satisfying and thorough clean is accessible with our solutions that will remove all of the dirt and grime from your carpets entirely.

The gentle, yet powerful carbonated cleaning won't be found when you use steam cleaning. The process they use will dump gallons of soapy water on your carpets and apply high pressure. You carpets may seem clean, but in reality the dirt has just been pushed further down and is creating a breeding ground for mold and bacteria! This approach presses dirt and moisture down into your carpet, hiding the mess rather than cleaning it, and creates a breeding ground for mold and other bacteria. Now compare that to the Chem-Dry clean that will leave your clean carpets dry in just 1-2 hours since we use just a fraction of the moisture. That means in the time it takes for your carpets to dry once after a steam cleaning, they would have dried 24 times if cleaned the Chem-Dry way. Once you experience luxury without the price tag you'll never be satisfied with anyone else.

At such low prices, every budget will find our services convenient and beneficial. We can help restore your dingy carpets, but only if you call today!

Carpet cleanings are always beneficial - but it's even more helpful to know when to call the professionals. Surprisingly, there are a few methods you can use to get even those tough stains out - something most carpet cleaners wouldn't tell you. At Chem-Dry we put our customers first, and we're happy to give you a few tips to save you some money and help you get the stains out easily on your own.

To apply the first remedy, you only need a white towel and some warm water. Just wet the stain and blot your carpet with the cloth. Scrubbing and wiping are things to avoid when doing this. Being aggressive with your carpet will only worsen the spot and possibly unravel your carpet fibers. By gently blotting the stain with your damp cloth, you will transfer the stain from your carpets to your cloth. If the spot transfers, the towel will start to darken and you want to check often for transfer. Stop the process if you can't see any darkening.

If there's no transfer to your towel, club soda is the next thing to try. Club soda is a fantastic cleaner because of the carbonation.  At Chem-Dry we use this same principle of carbonation for cleaning in our proprietary solution. Like you did with the warm water, use a clean white cloth and dampen and blot the spot with the club soda looking for transfer often. If this doesn't yield the results you'd hope, you'll know that you need Chem-Dry's help.

We are confident you will love the methods used by Chem-Dry. Particles will be removed from the individual fibers leaving your carpets cleaner than ever. Call us now for all your stain removal needs!

July 18th, 2014 - Allergen Removal
