Since 1977, Chem-Dry has utilized the power of carbonation to clean carpets rather than gallons of water and harsh chemicals used by steam cleaners. Now, many years later, Chem-Dry is still using an advanced green carbonation solution called TheNatural®, which is on the FDA’s G.R.A.S. list of safe products.

Green Carpet Cleaning

You wouldn’t add soaps, detergents, phosphates or other harsh chemicals to our air, lakes, streams or forests, so why add them to your carpets? At Chem-Dry of Salem, we believe in sustainability, which is why we have branched out beyond a green basic carpet cleaning solution and have begun offering a number of other green solutions to carpet cleaning. These include:

  • The Natural®
  • Stain Extinguisher
  • World Famous Spot Remover
  • Upholstery Rinse
  • Upholster Wet/Foam Cleaner
  • Carpet Deoderizer
  • Pet Odor Removal

And our commitment doesn’t stop there. Chem-Dry labs are constantly working toward Green solutions to carpet cleaning

The Carbonating Secret Revealed

The secret to Chem-Dry’s drier, healthier clean is the millions of microscopic, carbonating cleaning bubbles in our cleaner we call The Natural®. The carbonating solutions penetrate deep into the base of the carpet, literally exploding dirt and grime off of the fiber’s surface. Then, we use hot water extraction to lift the dirty particles to the surface where they are whisked away.

This concept is almost identical to that of using club soda to remove a stain from a shirt. The awesome cleaning power of carbonating solutions creates a powerful reaction that deep cleans carpets and upholstery in a safe and gentle way.

Carpets that Stay Cleaner Longer

Due to the power of carbonation, Chem-Dry of Salem does not have to use excessive amounts of moisture to clean your carpet or upholstered items. The bubbles do the work for us, so we don’t need the soapy cleaning chemicals used by other cleaners or do-it-yourself machines. Soapy residues attract dirt like a magnet, causing your carpet to get dirty again faster than before.

Chem-Dry’s primary carpet cleaner contains no soaps, detergents or surfactants. You save money when your carpet stays cleaner longer. Less cleanings means better bang for you buck and one less thing to worry about.

Reappearing Spots? Not a Problem

Carpet stains reappear in the same place after cleaning for two reasons. First, they weren’t thoroughly removed the first time. Often, the unwanted material is forced down below the surface of the carpet by a high pressure steam cleaning unit, only to resurface as the carpet dries. Secondly, the cleaning solutions used by many steam cleaners create a sticky residue that attracts more dirt and grime to the location.

Through the use of carbonated carpet cleaner, Chem-Dry of Salem removes stains quickly and efficiently. We apply our solutions so sparingly — and without high pressure — resurfacing of stains is not a problem. However, if a spot does reappear, then so will we until the problem is solved.
