Equipped with FDA-certified green cleaning products, Meridian Chem-Dry's team of carpet cleaners expertly extracts grime from underfoot upholstery with carbonating solutions and hot-water extraction. Square-inching their way across up to 600 square feet of carpetscape like janitorial inchworms, cleaners massage their bubbly, mineral-based solution—known as "The Natural"—deep into downtrodden pile, slowly lifting dirt and allergens to the surface. Scum is then thoroughly sucked away, leaving carpets brighter, softer, and free of chew-toy residue. Depending on the carpet's size, thickness, and levels of personal hygiene, the cleaning process takes anywhere from 30 minutes to one hour, with an additional two hours of drying time required before normal foot traffic can resume.
