September 6, 2017 - Chem-Dry vs. Steam Cleaning

Here at San Juan County Chem-Dry, we do things differently. We take pride in being able to provide a natural, longer lasting carpet cleaning solution than traditional steam cleaning. Our unique Hot Carbonating Extraction (HCE) method provides you with the best clean possible.

Our HCE process differs drastically from that of steam cleaners, which simply douse your carpet in buckets of hot, soapy water, then attempt to suck it all back out. While this process does temporarily clean your carpets, it also leaves behind a layer of sticky residue which collects dirt quicker, in addition to leaving moisture at the base of your carpet. This excess of moisture causes the carpets to take longer to dry and allows for mold and bacteria to grow.

January 6, 2017 - 5 Reasons to Clean Your Carpets in Winter

Cleaning your carpets in the winter is just as important, if not more, than in the other seasons. Don't believe us? Here are 5 reasons to convince you to clean your carpets during this time of year!

1. Better Air Quality
Summer months are actually dirtier than in the winter due to airborne pollutants and debris. Pet dander, pollen spores, dust and other debris can cause extremely unhealthy indoor air quality, so when you close the house up for the cold weather months, it all gets trapped in your carpet. Getting your carpets deep cleaned can boost indoor air quality and help fight off those pesky respiratory illnesses that are caused by irritants.
2. Faster Dry Time
Another reason to clean carpet in the winter is quicker drying times. Contrary to popular belief, the humidity levels in the winter are lower. This allows the moisture used during your carpet cleaning to evaporate quickly, allowing your carpet to dry slightly faster.
3. Better Timing
During the winter, appointments are much easier to make, while in the spring you may have to wait several weeks to get your appointment. Call us now to avoid the rush in later months!
4. Long Lasting Clean
In the spring and summer, dust, pollens and pollutants are blown into your home through open windows and foot traffic resulting in an unhealthy indoor environment. After you shut your home tight for the winter, it is contaminated for the entire season. Once you clean your carpet, it gets rid of the dust, pollens, and pollutants that are less common in the winter months.
5. Save Money
During the winter season, we like to offer several specials to help our customers stay clean during this time! Give us a call to see what specials we are currently offering today.

July 7, 2016 - Pet Problems?

Here at Chem-Dry, we really like our pets. They brighten our day and they’re consistently there to support us, through thick and thin. However, they can make it a real issue to keep your home clean, healthy and smelling fresh when pet accidents occur.

Not only is it complicated to cope with a pet urine accident as soon as one has transpired, but it’s also difficult to be aware of where former accidents might have taken place, which includes mishaps you may not have even been aware of. Utilizing a specific UV light, Chem-Dry can detect pet incidents in your residence and get rid of pet urine aromas from your carpets, rugs and upholstery through our progressive cleaning practice called P.U.R.T.® (Pet Urine Removal Treatment). P.U.R.T. contacts the source of the aroma and instantly starts a chemical response that demolishes the pet urine smell. It’s displayed outstanding results on even the most critical pet urine deterioration.

But how does it work?

Our unique P.U.R.T. approach is unequalled in the industry. It's particularly formulated to break down substances located deeply in the carpet that are the origin of the scents.
First, our trained professional will do an assessment of your carpets with a unique ultraviolet light. This light reveals any trouble spots and odorous urine deposits that will not be seen to the naked eye.
Next, the carpet will be rinsed with our deep cleaning, patented Hot Carbonating Extraction cleaning process to remove any liquid or loosened urine crystals.
Then, we utilize our impressive odor removal product, P.U.R.T., to each and every stain. P.U.R.T. travels deep into the carpet pad and even the sub-floor getting to areas that typical cleaning products or process are not able to reach.
Once applied, P.U.R.T. goes to work breaking down all of the odor-causing components over the next 24 to 36 hours. When each treated area has dried, the odor is eliminated completely.

3. Fleas

A flea is a tiny pest that feeds on the blood of mammals, and they adore to hide deep into your carpet. Lacking a consistent carpet cleaning, fleas thrive under the surroundings delivered by your carpet. This puts you and all your family in danger every time you come in contact with your carpet.


4. Dust Mites

Dust mites are tiny and serious bugs that cherish being in your carpet. Dust mites dig deep into your carpet, and they can't be eliminated with just a ordinary outdated vacuum. But how exactly do dust mites have an effect onyour private home? They lead to allergic reactions, and who wants that?

Mold is a outcome from a spill that is not properly looked after, or just because your carpet is old and filthy. Mold in your carpet presents majorside effects to you and your close relatives.
