Carpets as well as area rugs and upholstered furniture act as giant filters, trapping allergens and bacteria and keeping them out of the air we breathe. But, just like any air filter, carpets become full over time and must be properly cleaned to remain most effective at trapping particulates as they settle from the air. This is especially important for the roughly 25% of Canadians living with allergies or asthma. Considering that and the fact that we spend an average of 90% of our time indoors, selecting a trusted professional with safe and healthy processes to clean your carpet, upholstery, area rugs, tile & stone, and granite countertops is an important decision and plays a key role in the health of your home and your family.
Our mission is to help people live healthier lives. To ensure that our processes can provide the results you want to maintain a clean and healthy home, we had independent laboratories test our core cleaning methods against some of the most common unhealthy elements found in homes – allergens and bacteria. We’re happy to share those results with you.
Hot Carbonating Extraction Process Makes Homes Healthier
Our Hot Carbonating Extraction (HCE) process was tested by a leading independent air quality laboratory in multiple homes. The lab found that Chem-Dry removes an average of 98.1% of common household allergens from carpets and upholstery. The common allergens tested were dog and cat dander and dust mite allergen.
Additionally, our HCE process, when coupled with a sanitizer, was found to remove an average of 89% of the airborne bacteria in the home and 82.3% of the bacteria in carpets.
Pet Urine Removal Treatment (P.U.R.T.)
An independent laboratory also conducted multiple tests of P.U.R.T., our revolutionary process for treating pet urine odours and stains. In tests against the most common odour sources found in dog and cat urine, the study concluded that P.U.R.T. removes an average of 99.9% of pet urine odours from carpets. When coupled with our HCE process and a sanitizer, the study also concluded that P.U.R.T. removes an average of 99.2% of the bacteria from pet urine stains in carpets.
Tile, Stone & Grout Cleaning
Another service that an independent laboratory studied was our Tile, Stone & Grout Cleaning process. Based on several tests on tile surfaces in multiple homes, the study concluded that our Tile, Stone and Grout cleaning process, in conjunction with a sanitizer, removes an average of 98.6% of bacteria from these surfaces.
Granite Countertop Renewal
Based on several tests across multiple homes, an independent laboratory found that our Granite Countertop Renewal process, in conjunction with a sanitizer, removes an average of 98.4% of bacteria from granite countertops.
Many people don’t realize that carpets, rugs and upholstery act as giant air filters for your home, trapping allergens and bacteria and keeping them out of the air we breathe. But just like any air filters, they need to be properly and regularly cleaned to remain optimally effective. All of us, and particularly the 1 in 5 Canadians (roughly 60 million) who suffer from allergies or asthma, are greatly impacted by indoor air quality and the amount of allergens and bacteria trapped in our homes that can trigger an attack. Considering that and the fact that we spend an average of 90% of our time indoors, selecting a trusted professional with safe and healthy processes to clean your carpet, upholstery, area rugs, tile & stone, and granite countertops is an important decision and plays a key role in the health of your home and your family.
