3 Reasons Why Chem-Dry Is a Green Franchise

How Can a Carpet Cleaning Business Possibly Be "Green?" Ask Chem-Dry, a Green Franchise That Has Found Kid, Pet and Environment-Friendly Ways to Keep Carpets Beautiful

NASHVILLE, TN - (Marketwired - Apr 16, 2013) - Is it possible for a carpet cleaning company to be a green franchise? Most carpet cleaners use a lot of soaps and phosphates in their attempts to remove stains and dirt. Not only are harsh chemicals bad on the environment -- they can be dangerous to kids and pets.
Since 1977, Chem-Dry has been finding better and safer ways to clean carpets and other surfaces. Chem-Dry is different from the competition in several key ways -- all of which combine to make it a green franchise:

  • The Natural™ approach: Don't let the name Chem-Dry fool you. The "Chem" stands for "chemistry" -- not "chemicals." We have chemists who develop proprietary cleaning solutions like The Natural™, which is carbonated like soda water. The tiny bubbles that give soda a pleasant fizz are actually quite violent on a molecular level -- like tiny explosions that knock dirt loose, making it possible to clean without harsh chemicals.
  • Saving resources: Water is a precious resource, and Chem-Dry's hot carbonated extraction cleaning uses 80% less water than steam cleaning. Steam cleaning soaks carpets in a chemical stew in an attempt to clean carpets that then take a day or two to dry, and the moist carpet can become a breeding ground for mold and mildew. Carpets cleaned by Chem-Dry dry in an hour or two, leaving no toehold for mildew or mold.
  • Extending the life of your carpet: Chem-Dry has devised a long list of specialized cleaners that attack the chemical bond between stains and flooring, allowing us to restore carpets that many homeowners think may be a lost cause. Thanks to The Natural and specialized cleaners such as our Pet Urine Removal Treatment, Chem-Dry can make old carpets like new, keeping them out of landfills and saving money.
