The Small Jobs

I was recently out at a customers home for carpet cleaning. While talking with him he informed me that he had called zerorez to schedule a appointment for cleaning 2 rooms in his home. The customer service rep told him that at 2 rooms the job was to small for them to come out and clean. If he wanted them to come out to his house it would be a $200 minimum. So for all you people out there that are looking a couple rooms only to be cleaned Mr Chem Dry will come out and take care of that for you. There is no job to big or to small for the experienced technicians of Mr Chem Dry.

Allergy Sufferer?

Millions of people suffer from moderate to severe allergies . Believe it or not, carpet can be a major cause of allergy-related illness in the home. Carpet tends to trap 100 times more allergens and bacteria that hard floors, which can lead to misery for many allergy sufferers.

People assume that those suffering from allergies should remove all carpeting from their home. This is not necessarily true. Carpets can actually help to reduce the number of allergens in the home by trapping them. As long as the carpets are being cleaned on a regular basis, they can be helpful in keeping allergens locked inside instead of circulating around the home.

It is very important to have your carpets clean 2-3 times a year to ensure a thorough cleaning. If your allergies are more severe, this might need to be done more often. it is highly recommended for a more effective clean, you should hire Mr. Chem- Dry, to take care of your needs. We will know exactly which products to use to help eliminate these to help eliminate these allergens, and the cleaning process will not only clean deep into the carpet fibers, but it will sanitize the area as well.  Help to ensure a cleaner, healthier home for you and your family.

Why Choose Chem-Dry for Your Business

The Chem-Dry cleaning process was founded on the idea that there had to be an easier, more effective way to clean carpets than traditional steam cleaning, which dumps gallons of soapy water into your carpets and then attempts to suck it back up. We invented and patented the Chem-Dry Hot Carbonating Extraction cleaning method that uses industry-leading equipment and proprietary carbonating cleaning solutions to break up dirt and grime from deep in your carpets and lift them to the surface where they can be easily whisked away. The result is a deeper, longer lasting clean for your carpets.

Businesses can’t wait 24-48 hours for carpets or upholstery to dry after being cleaned. Chem-Dry’s low moisture process uses 80% less water than typical steam cleaning, so surfaces dry within 1-2 hours instead of 1-2 days. That means your business operations are not interrupted and you can get back to a productive workplace quicker. Unlike many steam cleaners, Chem-Dry’s core cleaner, The Natural, does not contain any dirt-attracting soaps, detergents or harsh chemicals, so your carpets stay cleaner longer. That means less frequent professional cleanings are necessary, which saves you money.

Our Chem-Dry technicians will analyze your facility and determine the best possible cleaning schedule to keep your carpet and fabrics looking new. Working with you, we will identify heavy, moderate and light traffic areas, and customize a program that makes your entire office a cleaner, healthier, happier place to work. Chem-Dry delivers consistent quality throughout the network for all of your locations. Our professional technicians receive a level of training that is unmatched in the cleaning industry, receiving extensive annual training and new certifications each year.

Upholstery Also Part of Spring Cleaning

Ahhh, spring cleaning time.  These days we no longer associate this phrase with washing the walls and ceiling to get rid of smoke residue left by kerosene lamps.  Today it is usually a factor of cleaning, above and beyond the regular maintenance of upholstery or carpet vacuuming and spot cleaning.

With upholstery cleaning, for example, we often miss vacuuming this fabric on the same schedule as we vacuum the carpet.  Either way, the quality of indoor air is directly affected by the frequency of vacuuming dry soils out of these surfaces which constitute the largest air filter in the home or office.  Without periodic deep cleaning, bacteria and dust mites can easily take up residence in these areas as well as the traffic lane soiling that builds up.

When we do need to remove a spill from the fabric of a couch or chair, we sometimes notice that the spot just cleaned is now “cleaner” than the surrounding fabric.  Assuming we did not use a household cleaner with a “brightener” which bleached the fabric, we are probably observing the soiling process and the same constant cleaning battle we have with the fabric in our clothes.  These “high use” areas on furniture can be hard to clean like the “ring around the collar or cuff” areas in clothing.

Another mistake people make is using a “Pinesol” type of disinfectant cleaner which can strip the protectant out of the upholstery fabric or carpet and leave it more vulnerable to future stains.  Regular wear will also remove the effectiveness of the protectant.  With upholstery,  it is also critical to identify the type of fabric to be cleaned to know which cleaning method may or may not be used.

Only Chem-Dry offers carbonated, or hot carbonating, carpet and upholstery cleaning which dramatically reduces the amount of moisture used in the cleaning process.  This slashes the drying time of carpets and leaves absolutely no dirt-attracting residue so they stay cleaner longer.  It is also non-toxic and environmentally safe.  No other service offers these cleaning systems and the advantages they bring.

Spring Cleaning Tile and Grout

La Quinta Inn Midvale, 3.18.2014 019When it comes to spring cleaning, one thing that might get overlooked is tile and grout lines. After years of mopping, grout can collect enough soil to completely disguise the original color or be multi-colored due to spills. In a bathroom, the traffic areas can become black while the areas of frequent moisture can become white with calcium deposits. This is all in the same room. The original color might be tan to match the tile, which we only discover as we start to clean it. When cleaning tile and grout, we at ChemDry use at least one of three different cleaning solutions, all with a different pH.  The one to use depends on the material being cleaned. Then we completely rinse out the solution (power wash) before resealing the grout so that the solution does not keep etching into the grout. That way you not only get the tile looking new again, but re-soiling is blocked for a much longer period of time because of being resealed.

Restoring the beauty of your carpet.


As you can see in the left photo, the previous owner of this Chinese restaurant had not had these carpets cleaned for years. She apparently thought it did not matter as long as she was staying busy. The thing is that when I  was taking these photos my shoes were sticking to the carpet so much that they would have come off if they weren’t tied. So when the new owner called me to evaluate the carpet, she told me she didn’t think that the carpet could be saved and  that she would have to replace it. I explained to her about the ChemDry process, she listened, and gave us the opportunity to show her what ChemDry is all about. A couple nights later me and my crew arrived at 10 pm, checked in, got started, and in a matter of hours we had the carpets literally looking like they were only a few years old. I am told that the carpet is original and that the restaurant is about 20 years old . Oh and as far as the mats go, I suggested she throw them away.

Red Stain Removal


A lot of times I hear people say that red stains (dyes ) are the hardest thing to get out of carpet or any fabric at all. The truth is red stains are very “easy” to remove. It’s when everyone gets in that panic mode when the red hits the carpet. What causes red or most any stain to be permanent is when people get in that panic mode , they grab whatever they think might work to get it out and throw it on. Over the counter chemicals are mass produced and advertised to get the sale and are not really meant to be on your carpet. They don’t have someone in a lab 18 – 24 hours a day like ChemDry does, working on ways to maintain the life of your carpet without destroying it by using harmful chemicals. All of ChemDrys solutions are carbonated and oxygenated and ones such as this is heat activated. And as you can see with the highly professional training our  technicians receive, you get results such as in these photos. This particular stain removal was in a hotel room and the management was so impressed that they new they had hired someone who could help them maintain the appearance of this quality hotel chain. If you don’t mess with the stain we can always get it out for you. It won”t hurt to leave it until we arrive. So please refer to your  ChemDry professional before going to the store or under your counter for chemicals.

Clean Carpets the Chem Dry Way

Mr. Chem Dry uses a very different way to clean your carpets and upholstery. The name, Mr.  Chem Dry makes people think that this type of cleaning is things that we really are not, so let me clarify. We use a carbonated mineral water called, The Natural, to clean the carpet and upholstery, instead of a soap or detergent. The carbonation is what brings the dirt to the surface so we can extract it out of the carpet or upholstery. Because we don’t use a shampoo or soap we can use 1/5 of the water, and a lot less pressure.

We can do this because we don’t have to put your carpets through a rinse cycle. If you think about it, there is no guarantee that the soap or shampoo got completely out your carpet or upholstery. When washing your hair you can ring it out and use as much water as needed to get the shampoo out. With carpets it’s not quite the same. Too much water can ruin the back of your carpets and leaving any shampoo in your carpet will attract dirt later on. This also means that your carpets or upholstery is going to dry in about 1-3 hours, instead of 1-2 days like other carpet cleaners.

Mr. Chem Dry leaves no dirt attracting residue behind with The Natural cleaning agent, because it’s carbonated mineral water, making it safe for kids and pets. The Natural is a non-toxic powerful and environmentally friendly cleaning agent.  Give us a call today to get your appointment set up. 801-298-8125
