September 6, 2017 - Chem-Dry vs. Steam Cleaning

Here at Chem-Dry of Crawford and Sebastian County, we do things differently. We take pride in being able to provide a natural, longer lasting carpet cleaning solution than traditional steam cleaning. Our unique Hot Carbonating Extraction (HCE) method provides you with the best clean possible.

Our HCE process differs drastically from that of steam cleaners, which simply douse your carpet in buckets of hot, soapy water, then attempt to suck it all back out. While this process does temporarily clean your carpets, it also leaves behind a layer of sticky residue which collects dirt quicker, in addition to leaving moisture at the base of your carpet. This excess of moisture causes the carpets to take longer to dry and allows for mold and bacteria to grow.

January 6, 2017 - 5 Reasons to Clean Your Carpet in Winter

Cleaning your carpets in the winter is just as important, if not more, than in the other seasons. Don't believe us? Here are 5 reasons to convince you to clean your carpets during this time of year!

1. Better Air Quality
Summer months are actually dirtier than in the winter due to airborne pollutants and debris. Pet dander, pollen spores, dust and other debris can cause extremely unhealthy indoor air quality, so when you close the house up for the cold weather months, it all gets trapped in your carpet. Getting your carpets deep cleaned can boost indoor air quality and help fight off those pesky respiratory illnesses that are caused by irritants.
2. Faster Dry Time
Another reason to clean carpet in the winter is quicker drying times. Contrary to popular belief, the humidity levels in the winter are lower. This allows the moisture used during your carpet cleaning to evaporate quickly, allowing your carpet to dry slightly faster.
3. Better Timing
During the winter, appointments are much easier to make, while in the spring you may have to wait several weeks to get your appointment. Call us now to avoid the rush in later months!
4. Long Lasting Clean
In the spring and summer, dust, pollens and pollutants are blown into your home through open windows and foot traffic resulting in an unhealthy indoor environment. After you shut your home tight for the winter, it is contaminated for the entire season. Once you clean your carpet, it gets rid of the dust, pollens, and pollutants that are less common in the winter months.
5. Save Money
During the winter season, we like to offer several specials to help our customers stay clean during this time! Give us a call to see what specials we are currently offering today.

July 7, 2016 - Pet Problems?

Here at Chem-Dry, we take pleasure in our pets. They perk up our day and they’re frequently there to support us, through the years. However, they can make it a real test to keep your home clean, healthy and smelling new when pet accidents happen.

Not only is it tricky to cope with a pet urine incident as soon as one has transpired, but it’s also tough to be aware of where prior accidents might have taken place, including mishaps you may not have even known about. Working with a specific UV light, Chem-Dry can discover pet accidents in your home and remove pet urine aromas from your carpets, rugs and upholstery through our modern cleaning procedure called P.U.R.T.® (Pet Urine Removal Treatment). P.U.R.T. contacts the source of the odor and instantaneously begins a chemical reaction that eliminates the pet urine smell. It’s displayed exceptional outcomes on even the most major pet urine destruction.

But how does it deliver the results?

Our proprietary P.U.R.T. approach is remarkable in the industry. It's precisely formulated to break down substances found deeply in the carpet that are the origin of the smells.
First, our properly trained expert will do an assessment of your carpets with a specific ultraviolet light. This light reveals any problem areas and odorous urine deposits that may not be seen to the naked eye.
Next, the carpet will be washed with our deep cleaning, patented Hot Carbonating Extraction cleaning process to remove any liquid or free urine crystals.
Then, we employ our amazing odor removal product, P.U.R.T., to each individual stain. P.U.R.T. travels deep into the carpet pad and even the sub-floor reaching areas that typical cleaning products or process are not able to reach.
Once applied, P.U.R.T. goes to work breaking down all of the odor-causing factors over the next 24 to 36 hours. When each treated area has dried, the odor is gone for good.
