Why does this matter to someone who is considering a carpet cleaning franchise? It's because Chem-Dry's cleaning process removes allergens from the home.
Chem-Dry commissioned a leading independent laboratory to study how well its proprietary hot carbonating extraction reduces allergens and bacteria. The study specifically tested dog and cat dander and dust mites. The lab found that Chem-Dry's process removes an average of 98.1% of common household allergens from carpets and upholstery. The study also showed Chem-Dry's sanitizer service eliminated 89% of airborne bacteria, significantly improving indoor air quality.
Chem-Dry's cleaning process offers customers a host of benefits using 80% less water than traditional steam cleaning, allowing carpets to dry in one to two hours, rather than one to two days. Faster drying time means less opportunity for mold to grow deep in the carpet padding.
Chem-Dry is the world's largest carpet cleaning franchise with more than 3,500 locations that serve 10,000 homes a day. It is Entrepreneur magazine's top-rated carpet cleaning franchise - and has held that title for 27 consecutive years - and is one of its Top 10 choices for low-cost franchises. Its proprietary hot carbonating extraction process delivers a faster-drying, deeper, healthier clean that appeals to homeowners and business owners. That process cleans tile and stone, upholstery, and other surfaces, as well as carpet.
