Entrepreneur Magazine ranks Premier Chem-Dry at the top of its list of carpet-cleaning franchises, an honor the 30-year-old carpet- and upholstery-cleaning business nabbed with the help of its signature cleaner The Natural. More water efficient than steam cleaners or hoping the bathtub overflows all the way into the living room, the formula uses carbonation to lift dirt to the carpet’s surface for easy removal. The solution dries in one to two hours, leaving carpets resistant to resoiling, especially when paired with an optional protectant.
Premier Chem-Dry’s professional technicians can use The Natural to cleanse upholstery as well as carpets; their ministrations can also alleviate water damage caused by floods or the making of ocean dioramas. Alternatively, they can ply stone, tile, and grout with suction and powerful cleaning solutions to remove dirt before coating them in durable sealant. Liability insurance and a satisfaction guarantee backs all their work, lending their services appealing to even the most carpet conscious.

In addition to repairing equipment, the experts can install brand-new systems or entirely renovate pools with retiling and new decks. For hot-tub aficionados, the company outfits homes with Garden Leisure spas, which help to relax aching muscles without the dangers associated with steeping in a witch’s cauldron.
