It’s not surprising that Chem-Dry boasts more than 4,000 locations around the world—it uses reliable cleaning agents that are both natural and effective. Its carpet-cleaning process leaves floors treadable in one to two hours with a simple mixture of carbonation and hot water that uses significantly less moisture than steam cleaning or an indoor fire hydrant. The nontoxic cleaner, which Chem-Dry calls The Natural, is safe to use around kids and pets. Technicians can also use a black light to hunt down pet urine spots for treatment, remove water damage, and extract grime from tile and grout before applying a protective sealant.
