New study proves Chem-Dry’s proprietary cleaning process makes homes healthier

Results reveal Chem-Dry removes 98.1% of allergens from carpets and upholstery, 89% of airborne bacteria.

Further cementing its position as the category leader, a new study found that Chem-Dry, the world’s leading carpet and upholstery cleaning service, significantly reduces the amount of common indoor allergens and bacteria in the home. After vigorous testing of Chem-Dry’s proprietary Hot Carbonating Extraction (HCE) cleaning process, researchers found Chem-Dry’s cleaning method to remove an average of 98.1 percent of common household allergens from carpets and upholstery. When the HCE process was combined with their sanitizer, Chem-Dry was also found to remove an average of 89 percent of the airborne bacteria in the home.

The study was conducted by a leading independent air quality laboratory in a cross-section of consumer homes in the U.S. and internationally. The specific common household allergens tested were cat and dog dander and dust mite allergens.

“We were pleased that our cleaning process shone through with superior results in this study, solidifying Chem-Dry’s position as the healthy home brand in the carpet cleaning industry,” said Dan Tarantin, CEO of Chem-Dry. “Whether you suffer from allergies or asthma, or you just want to provide the healthiest home for your family, our proprietary cleaning products and process are extremely effective in removing common allergens and bacteria from the home and improving indoor air quality, ultimately creating a healthier living environment for families worldwide.”

Americans spend an average of 90 percent of their time indoors, so having carpet and upholstery professionally cleaned is essential to maintaining a healthy home, especially for the one in five Americans who suffer from allergies. Carpets, area rugs and upholstered furniture help indoor air quality by acting as giant filters that absorb dirt, allergens and bacteria, but they need to be professionally cleaned in order to remain optimally effective. Without regular professional cleanings, bacteria and other unhealthy elements that have built up in the carpets get stirred up, become airborne and circulate throughout the home when there is activity in the room. Chem-Dry’s ability to provide a deep clean that removes a high percentage of allergens in carpets and upholstery, as well as bacteria from the air, demonstrates how effective its process is at creating healthier homes.

Unlike some other carpet and upholstery cleaning services in the market today, Chem-Dry uses a proprietary hot carbonating cleaning process that harnesses the power of millions of microscopic bubbles to penetrate deep into carpet fibers, lifting particles to the surface so they can be easily extracted. The brand’s primary cleaning solution, The Natural®, is green-certified and doesn’t contain any detergents or harsh chemicals, making it safe and non-toxic for kids and pets. Additionally, Chem-Dry uses 80 percent less water than typical steam cleaning so carpets dry in a couple of hours instead of a couple of days. And while most steam cleaners use an excessive amount of water that often soaks through to the carpet backing and creates a breeding ground for mold and mildew, Chem-Dry’s low-moisture process doesn’t carry the same risk and offers a safer and more convenient solution. The result is a deeper clean, faster-drying carpets and a healthier home.

In conjunction with the release of the study findings, Chem-Dry has launched its “Spring into a Healthier Home” campaign, giving homeowners nationwide the chance to win a free carpet and upholstery cleaning package.

Founded in 1977, Chem-Dry is the world’s leading carpet and upholstery cleaning service, with a network of more than 3,500 units in 47 countries serving over 10,000 homes a day worldwide. Chem-Dry has been ranked the number one carpet cleaning franchise by Entrepreneur magazine for 27 consecutive years and has also been featured in the magazine’s Top Home-Based Franchises list among the top 10 concepts for 19 consecutive years.
