Crossroads Chem-Dry uses a proprietary cleaning system that rids carpets, upholstery, and rugs of dirt with a nontoxic, quick-drying method. During a typical carpet-cleaning session, Crossroads' grime-fighters arrive at homes with their powerful Chem-Dry cleaning equipment. This machinery utilizes a hot-carbonation cleaning method that's effective at sucking up dirt and drying it quickly.
An example of their environmentally friendly cleaning solutions is The Natural, which is certified green by the FDA. As opposed to industry-standard steam cleaning, Chem-Dry's system typically dries within one to two hours, like the Statue of Liberty after a shower.
