11/29/2015-Planning for the Holidays!

As the leaves are falling and the seasons start to adjust, the one basic custom that best signifies the end of fall and beginning of winter is the holidays. Inspite of where you live, mid-November automatically marks the first of the holiday season, full of family visits, lights, decorations, and an plethora of food. But, along with each of the holiday parties and joy also come all of the inescapablemesses and clean-up.

We at Chem-Dry comprehend hosting during holidays might possibly betremendouslytiring, and we want to help you appreciate your holiday season with very little stress as possible, so we are furnishing the following tips to make sure a happier, healthier, stain-free holiday season:

Positioning area rugs in excessive traffic parts, such as entrances to your home, will guard your carpet from unwarranted staining and wear from all the company entering and exiting.
Ask that house guestskick off their shoes upon coming into your houseconsidering that shoes typicallycarry around dirt, debris and oils on their soles. Having people take them off should helpkeep grime from being tracked over your carpets.
Vacuuming just before hosting a holiday special eventcan really helpforestall everyday dust from accumulating and setting into your carpet, before adding more dirt that may be tracked in from your guests.
The chances of a spill greatlyrisesover the holidays. If you do confront a stain, blot it with lukewarm water promptly to steer clear of it from sinkingin the carpet pad. Use a cloth hand towel for blotting.
Make sure to vacuum immediately following a party to stay clear of food crumbs from sticking to the carpet and turning into mold and bacteria. Go over the most seriously trafficked carpet areas in several directions to allow the vacuum to collect all it can.

When the terrible does take place and you have a stain left by your guests, don't stress and panic. Here are a few suggestions togetting rid of spots and stains promptly after they show up:

Be certain you never rub it in
Do not add an surplusquantity of water over the stain to “lighten it.” Although this may loosen the stain, it can also result in the stain to soakdeeper into the carpet pad, making it increasingly difficult to get out.
Try incorporating warm water with white vinegar or dish detergent, and blot the stain with the formula.
For a red wine spill, use a detergent solution. With the detergent solution, first dip a white cloth or plain white paper towel into the detergent solution and dab continuously. Press the cloth on the spot for a few seconds, wait 15 minutes for the stain to break down, and then soak up the accumulated liquid with a dry white cloth. Continue by blotting the entire area with a cloth soaked in lukewarm water. Wait a full hour or until the carpet dries totally. If the stain still remains, place a 1/2-inch-thick stack of white paper towels over the stain and rest a glass baking dish on top for 15 minutes.
For difficult, stubborn stains, spray a small quantity of Chem-Dry Stain Extinguisher or Chem-Dry Grease & Oil Remover (click here to stock up on these at our amazon store).
Once you have concluded the most effective course of action, work from the outside edge of the stain to the inside to keep the stain from spreading.
If you have a pet that gets stressed around good sizedsets of people and conveys his/her anxiousnessin your own home by urinating, blot up as much of it as you can with a towel. For the best results, try Chem-Dry’s Pet Odor Remover, which gets rid of pet urine odors and stains at the source (available online as well at our amazon store.) or contact Chem-Dry professionals for older pet urine odors to use their revolutionary Pet Urine Removal Treatment.


If you have a spot or stain you simply cannotget rid of or you are not able to clean your massively trafficked areas, schedule a professional carpet cleaning appointment with your local Chem-Dry. For a holiday treat, make sure you ask about their holiday specials.

Get a hefty, healthy clean that will dry in only a couple of hours, so you will be prepared for your holiday gathering efficiently!

4/15/2015-Here Comes Spring! Along with the Allergies.

AA-1 Chem-Dry Blog PostWill you be one of many 40 million Americans that fight with seasonal allergies? Research has revealed that when you vacuum your carpets on a regular basis that you can actually reduce the dust borne allergens that live in your home and have a lower level of allergens than those rooms with hard flooring surfaces. Lessen the symptoms like coughing, sneezing, scratching with this particular quick tip. Vacuum at least once or twice a week and have your carpets cleaned professionally every 3-4 months, but better yet have them cleaned by AA-1 Chem-Dry.

We know that all carpet cleaning services aren’t alike and we have something extra great about us. Chem-Dry commissioned a leading independent air quality laboratory to conduct a study using Chem-Dry’s Hot Carbonating Extraction (HCE) process in multiple homes. The lab found that Chem-Dry removes an average of 98.1% of common household allergens from the upholstery and carpets we clean.*

3/31/2015-Time for Spring Cleaning

This spring, make your house a safer, healthier place to live. The tips below not only get your home back in shape for the spring and summer, but they help make your home a healthier place to live by minimizing germs and reducing allergens.

Professionally clean rugs, carpets and upholstery. If you really want to deep clean your carpets, rugs and upholstery and eliminate the dirt and germs that have accumulated over the winter months, call the experts at Chem-Dry. Chem-Dry uses a green-certified solution that's safe and non-toxic for kids and pets and a low-water, carbonating cleaning process  that will give your surfaces and your home a deep-down, healthier clean. And be sure to ask about our premium Healthy Home package, which includes sanitizing your carpets and upholstery to reduce the unhealthy bacteria that may have collected. Since Chem-Dry uses 80% less water than typical steam cleaning, you'll love the convenience of our speedy dry times - just a couple of hour rather than a couple of days - and not having the mold and mildew growth that can come from the excessive water used by steam cleaners.

Thoroughly dust your home and clean or replace air conditioning and heating filters; clean all ducts and vents to decrease your exposure to pollens and other airborne allergens.

Remove mold and mildew in moist areas of the home. Mold is a fungus that can spark allergic  reactions for many people and spring is a tough time of year for anyone with allergies of any kind. Use non-toxic cleaning products and make sure bathrooms, laundry rooms, and kitchens are free of unhealthy mold.

 

2/27/2015-Power of Protectant

Your carpets and upholstery receive a great deal of use and we know that spills and stains are going to happen even if we try our best to stop them. Implementing Chem-Dry's Protectant to all your carpets and upholstery will make your carpets and upholstery last longer. Because the factory-applied stain resistant diminishes and fades away leaving your carpets and upholstery vulnerable to staining and spills. Chem-Dry Protectants generate a strong barrier around the fibers in your carpets and upholstery items to resist soiling and staining by allowing spills to be removed before staining can occur. Make sure your carpets and furniture look great year after year by applying Chem-Dry Protectant.

Watch our Power of Fabric Protector video and you will be amazed!

Having your carpets cleaned is always a great option. Knowing when to call the cleaners can save you some money in the long run. Surprisingly, there are a few methods you can use to get even those tough stains out - something most carpet cleaners wouldn't tell you. But because we're not like most other carpet cleaning companies, here are a few carpet cleaning tips to keep your carpets staying fresh.

The first step is to use a white towel and warm water to blot out the spots and stains. While doing this, make sure you don'tMom and daughter hanging out together in a clean house aggressively wipe or scrub the stain (as this will only make the spot worse). Simply blotting the stain with the towel will produce the best results. The water helps dissolve the stain and the towel pulls absorbs. If the process is working in removing the stain, it will be visible on the towel. Check for this often. If you can't see the stain on your cloth, stop blotting.

If this doesn't work, try using club soda instead. This is a great alternative because club soda is also a natural cleaner - using the same principles behind Chem-Dry's cleaning solutions. Simply repeat what you did before, substituting the club soda in place of the water. If you don't see any improvement, you'll know it's time to call Chem-Dry.

Our stain removal process is one of the most advanced in the industry, with multiple cleaning solutions that penetrate deep into the carpet's fiber, leaving no trace of the stain. At Chem-Dry we firmly believe that if we can't get it out, No one can!

Even though kids and pets track dirt and mud into the home regularly throughout the year, this is especially true during the summer months. Luckily, school starts again, making the mess manageable once again. Don’t let your carpets become additional stress on top of going back to school – let us worry about the mess.

Even though there are many reasons to choose Chem-Dry, the most apparent is our unique cleaning process, allowing us to clean deeper than any other brand. As compared to steam cleaners, which dump gallons of water into your carpet to hide dirt and other filth in your carpet fibers, Chem-Dry’s method uses carbonation to remove these unwanted particles from individual fibers and lift them to the surface, where they can be quickly and cleanly extracted with hot water. Because minimal water is used, not only does it prevent mold and mildew – it also allows your carpets to dry within hours instead of days! Give us a call or click for a free estimate today!

For people with allergies, summer can be more miserable than relaxing. To keep your home allergy-free during pollen season, it’s important to routinely and thoroughly clean your carpets and furniture. When you’re most in need, rely on the Chem-Dry method to clean your home and clear out those irritating allergens.

Every home will typically feature a collection of allergens, dust, germs and other irritating and even harmful particles built up over time in carpets, furniture and other upholstered items. Rather than pushing these unwanted substances further down into your carpets, the Chem-Dry professionals use the power of carbonation to release them from individual carpet fibers and lift them to the surface, removing them completely. Though we can’t stop the allergens outside your home, try us to relieve your symptoms within your home!

AA-1 Chem-Dry is primed and ready to partner with you for this year’s Spring Cleaning! Clearing out unused items and cleaning up your home helps us feel better. But more importantly, a deep spring cleaning in your home can help your family stay healthy and allergy-free this summer.

Most households can easily have a buildup of dust and dirt that are tracked in during the winter months. In addition, germs from colds, flu viruses and other illnesses stay stagnant in your home when the windows are closed. Opening your windows helps freshen the air, but it doesn’t help clear out the buildup of dust, dirt and germs that has built up in your carpets. Spring and summer can also bring mild or extreme allergies for many people. Over 50 million Americans suffer from allergies. Doing a complete spring cleaning can decrease allergy symptoms by removing dust, mites, bacteria and other allergens hiding on indoor surfaces, carpets, and upholstery.

Cleaning all surfaces, including hard-to-reach and hidden areas can reduce the allergens in your home. Cleaning blinds and removing unused bedding and plush toys can help as well.

We can help your deep spring cleaning efforts by:
- Deep cleaning your carpets, rugs, and upholstery. Our services help remove the hidden allergens in your carpets, and furniture.
- Applying our Sanitizer and Dust Mite Allergen Treatment. These products can keep your carpet free of dust mites for an extended time.

Please contact us so that we can create a custom plan for your cleaning needs!

You may have a big family, or live alone. Either way, you have many more roommates than you can see.  Every time you leave your home, you track bacteria from outside into your carpets and onto your furniture.

We use 80% less water than our competitors, yet our powerful equipment extracts way more dirt and grime than any other carpet cleaning company out there. Also, our process provides you with a deeper clean, while maintaining a shorter drying time. That means there is less time for the bacteria and mold growing deep in your carpets and furniture to multiply and thrive on the moisture.

It’s important to stay informed about your carpet’s warranty. According to an article by Tom Wolfe from Impressions Carpet Services, “A percentage of what you paid for your carpet went to cover the anticipated costs to the manufacturer for warranty claims. [These] claims are more often than not the result of poor, or improper, maintenance. Over the last few years, carpet manufacturers have begun to tie warranties to required maintenance by the carpet purchaser.

This means that whether you are in the market for new carpet or not, you need to be aware that the requirements are become more strict for warranties. “The bottom line is that proper maintenance will help you get a greater return on your carpet investment, no matter when it was purchased,” the article goes on to say.

Some of the main issues that manufacturers are addressing fall into 4 categories:

1. The proper cleaning method. Most carpet mills require the Hot-Water Extraction Cleaning process, which is the method that Chem-Dry uses to give your carpets a deep clean without damaging the carpet fibers.

2. The proper cleaning schedule. As a general rule, all major manufacturers have a minimum requirement that carpets be cleaned every 1-2 years. (keep your receipts as proof)

3. The proper cleaning system. Your carpets should be cleaned professionally by equipment that is tested and certified with the Carpet and Rug Institute. All Chem-Dry equipment is certified and rated GOLD with the CRI, providing your home with the best technicians and equipment to get your carpets cleaner than ever.

4. The proper cleaning technician. The single most important aspect in proper cleaning is to get the right person to do the job. All Chem-Dry technicians are trained and certified to deliver amazing results, while maintaining efficiency and staying affordable.

Stick with these handy rules to stay up to date with your warranty and keep your carpet looking great – FOREVER!
