The EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) suggests that homeowners clean their carpets every 3-6 months. The majority of our customers get their carpets cleaned 1-2 times per year.

How does Chem-Dry compare to steam cleaning?
Traditional steam cleaning saturates your carpet with an excessive amount of water filled with soaps and detergents. This process leaves you with wet carpets for 1-2 days, which creates a breeding ground for mold and mildew. Plus the soapy residue left behind attracts dirt and causes your carpets to get dirty much faster.
Precision Chem-Dry’s process is very different. We use a carbonated cleaning solution called The Natural® that employs millions of microscopic bubbles to explode dirt from deep in your carpet fibers. The use of carbonation allows us to use a fraction of the water that steam cleaners require. After the carbonation releases and lifts the dirt, our high powered equipment agitates and extracts the dirt and moisture from the carpet. No sticky residue, no excessive moisture – just clean, healthy carpet and quick dry times.
Will my carpets re-soil quickly after the cleaning is finished?
Can other carpet cleaning methods actually hurt my carpets?
Yes. Steam cleaning uses a process of forcing large quantities of soapy water into your carpets and then attempts to suck it all back out. Because the heavy amount of water results in an extended drying time, usually 1-2 days, this method can actually cause carpets to grow mold and mildew beneath the surface. Excessive moisture also leads to re-soiling, which is when your carpets actually attract dirt.
Why should I have my upholstered furniture professionally cleaned?
How does Chem-Dry clean upholstery?
We use our proprietary Hot Carbonating Extraction® cleaning method, featuring our core cleaner The Natural®. The carbonated cleaning bubbles release dirt, soil, airborne allergens and spots from the upholstery fibers. Then, we use our extraction equipment to remove the cleaning solution, dirt, soil and airborne contaminants from your furniture, leaving it with a deeper, healthier clean than other alternatives.
Do you offer protectant or stain guard for upholstery?
How long does it take for furniture to dry?
How often do upholstery manufacturers recommend that you clean your furniture?
Most manufacturers recommend professional upholstery cleaning every 24-48 months. As with carpets, the presence of kids, pets, and those with allergies and asthma in the home necessitates more frequent cleaning to improve the overall healthiness of the home. If furniture is stained, saturated or has unwanted odor then it is ready for a cleaning.
