Keeping your home healthy starts with clean carpets. Chem-Dry is your best choice in the area for carpet cleaning because we specialize in providing a deeper, longer-lasting clean with healthier results. Between cleanings, here are some great tips to care for your carpet.
Industry experts suggest that homeowners clean their carpets every 3-6 months especially homes with kids, pets or if someone in your home has asthmas or allergies. Regular cleaning will not only improve your home’s appearance, but it will eliminate germs and allergens, improve your home’s indoor air quality and extend the life of your carpeting.
Professionally clean rugs, carpets and upholstery. If you really want to deep clean your carpets, rugs and upholstery and eliminate the dirt and germs that have accumulated over the winter months, call the experts at Chem-Dry. Chem-Dry uses a green-certified solution that's safe and non-toxic for kids and pets and a low-water, carbonating cleaning process that will give your surfaces and your home a deep-down, healthier clean. And be sure to ask about our premium Healthy Home package, which includes sanitizing your carpets and upholstery to reduce the unhealthy bacteria that may have collected. Since Chem-Dry uses 80% less water than typical steam cleaning, you'll love the convenience of our speedy dry times - just a couple of hour rather than a couple of days - and not having the mold and mildew growth that can come from the excessive water used by steam cleaners. Industry experts suggest that homeowners clean their carpets every 3-6 months especially homes with kids, pets or if someone in your home has asthmas or allergies. Regular cleaning will not only improve your home’s appearance, but it will eliminate germs and allergens, improve your home’s indoor air quality and extend the life of your carpeting.
Thoroughly dust your home and clean or replace air conditioning and heating filters; clean all ducts and vents to decrease your exposure to pollens and other airborne allergens.
Remove mold and mildew in moist areas of the home. Mold is a fungus that can spark allergic reactions for many people and spring is a tough time of year for anyone with allergies of any kind. Use non-toxic cleaning products and make sure bathrooms, laundry rooms, and kitchens are free of unhealthy mold.
Don't forget the tile, stone and grout. High traffic areas collect months of winter dirt and germs, and most weekly cleanings don't do the job when it comes to giving these surfaces a thorough, healthy cleaning. The grout between tiles and stone can be the toughest to get clean. While Chem-Dry is taking care of your carpets, area rugs and upholstery, ask them to also give your tile, stone and grout a professional cleaning to eliminate stains and bacteria from these extremely porous surfaces and start spring off on a healthier foot.

Stop Dirt at the Door
Preventing dirt and grime from getting on the carpet in the first place is a great way to start keeping it clean. The following helpful hints can stop dirt in its tracks.
Use mats : Outdoor and indoor mats or runners can reduce the amount of dirt that enters and spreads in the house.
Take off your shoes : You can save wear and tear on carpet by asking everyone to take their shoes off before entering your home.
Change your air filters : Change air filters in your heating and air-conditioning systems as recommended in the manufacturer's directions. The more dust and particles removed by the filter, the fewer that fall onto the carpet and other surfaces in the home.
