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



Pet Urine Removal and Your Pet’s Behavior


As a technician I run into a lot of customers who are having trouble with their pets continuing to urinate on there carpets. When I’m at their home doing a pet urine removal analysis, Mr. Chem Dry guarantees the odor to be removed from the carpet and upholstery. They also believe that the dog will not be able to smell it and will quit going in that area after we do the P.U.R.T. (Pet Urine Removal  Treatment). Dogs have a very keen sense of smell and this does not always fix a dogs behavior. But with that being said, Chem Dry’s P.U.R.T. does an excellent job of removing the pet urine and the pet odor from the carpet.



Upholstery Special

We have been running an Upholstery Special and its going to end soon. Take advantage of this special while its still going on. For every piece of upholstery you get cleaned its 10% off each. So if you get your sofa and loveseat, that’s 20% off. This is a great special and a great time of year to do it. Get your upholstery and carpets looking great for spring. Give Mr. Chem Dry a call today 801-298-8125


Spring Carpet Cleaning

Its about that time again….Spring Cleaning is upon us, It does not look like it outside , but it is.  Here at Mr. Chem Dry we have all of the services you need for Spring Cleaning.  We specialize in Carpet Cleaning, Upholstery Cleaning, Area Rug Cleaning, and Pet Urine Removal.  The way we do are cleaning is so much diffrent thatn regular steam cleaning.  They tend to use alot of water, soaking your carpets and they also tend to use alot of soaps and detergents.  Its the water and the soaps and detergents, that actually get left in the carpets that just attract the dirt.  Its the soapy residue that just gets left in the carpets its just not a good thing.  They might look clean for like a week but the stains and spots just reappear because fo that residue.  At Mr. Chem Dry the process we use, uses alot less water, and no soaps or detergents.  We use a carbonated solution.  The best way to describe it is if you have ever taken club soda to a stain, its the bubbles that do all the work, and bring all of the dirt up to the surface.  And since we are cleaning and extracting at the same time with a lot less water the carpets generally dry within 2-3 hours.  That is an amazing benifit and people just love it.  Who wants to wait 2-3 DAYS for there carpets to dry??  We use the same type of benifit on Upholstery also, and the drying time is generally 2-3 hours.  Area rugs, same process.  And if you have pet stains, we can help you with that also.  We have a solution that will retract the smell and the stains out clear to the subfloor.  And we come out and do a free black light inspection to show you exactly where the stains are.  Sometimes they are hard to see.  So spring carpet cleaning should be a sinch with are help.  We will be glad to help.

Germs, germs everywhere!

Believe it or not, your carpet is one of the germiest places in your home.  It contains about 4,000 times as much bacteria as the toilet seat!

In order to help prevent these types of germs and bacteria from taking over your carpet, it is highly recommended that you consider getting a deep cleaning twice a year from a professional carpet cleaning service to clean and sanitize your carpets to help rid your carpet of bacteria and unwanted germs. While routine vacuuming is also important, most vacuums don’t have the suction power to remove all of these germs.  It is certainly helpful and important in the routine maintenance of your carpet, but a professional cleaning will help to rid your home of many of these unwanted germs.  It will not only give you peace of mind about having sanitized carpets, but it will also leave your home feeling healthy, clean, and fresh.

Give us a call and we will come get rid of those germs for you!


Ink Stain Removal From Carpets

One of our techs went to do a basic carpet cleaning at a customer’s home in which he nor the customer knew or realized there was an ink spot on the carpet until our tech began cleaning and a little blue spot appeared. He immediately stopped the cleaning and began working on removing the ink. This is an example of one of the many unexpected situations that may come up and need to be handled when cleaning carpets.
