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 1993, after years as a tech in the carpet cleaning industry, Gregory Cole founded Pro Carpet as a one-stop shop providing the best carpet-cleaning practices he had learned during his career. Gregory's team, which now numbers more than 30 techs, begins each carpet-cleaning service with a thorough walk-through, during which customers can point out specific soiled areas before the techs evaluate carpets for their levels of dirt, stains, and rainbow sprinkles. As they begin to clean, they employ steam-based cleaning and stain-specific products, such as the company's proprietary enzyme-based pet-stain formula, to remove odors and soils.
Pro Carpet's expertise also extends beyond carpeting, tackling upholstery and area rugs with the same thoroughness. They can also be called upon to repair water damage, clean office cubicles, and sweep dust and allergens from inside air ducts with professional-grade tools that improve air quality.
