Carpet Cleaning That Dries in 1-2 Hours

Can you think of anything worse than wet socks? Well, after some carpet cleaners are finished it can take up to 2 days for your carpet to dry, making the chance of stepping on wet carpet in your socks much higher. This is because many carpet cleaners use a "soak and suck" method of cleaning, drenching your carpet and padding with soapy water, then sucking it out the best they can. The result is often soaking wet carpet and padding that takes days to dry.

On the other hand, Chem-Dry of Des Moines uses a proprietary carpet cleaning method called Hot Carbonating Extraction which uses the cleaning power of carbonation to loosen and extract dirt from deep within your carpet's fibers. This method provides a superior clean that uses 80% less water than traditional steam cleaning and allows your carpet to dry in 1-2 hours. This not only prevents you from accidentally getting your sock wet, but also prevents the growth of mold or mildew caused by damp carpet padding.

Our professionally-trained technicians here at Chem-Dry of Des Moines are dedicated to providing an outstanding cleaning experience and will treat your home and family with the respect you deserve. Fill out our contact form or call us today at (515) 981-3034

Matt at ChemDry answered right away and he was so nice on the phone...Next time my pets have an accident, I'll call Matt before spending $100 on store bought cleaners.

Chem-Dry’s cleaning process is better and healthier than other methods for your carpet and upholstery cleaning. Chem-Dry’s unique hot carbonating extraction carpet cleaning method uses the power of carbonation to extract more dirt and grime from your carpets, giving them a deeper and longer lasting clean. Our carbonated cleaning solution only requires us to use a fraction of the moisture other methods such as steam cleaning require. This allows your carpets to dry faster, typically in 1-2 hours.

Pet odors can linger on for months if not treated properly. As urine dries in the carpet and padding, what’s left are millions of concentrated urine crystals that become even more pungent. Many companies just mask this odor. Chem-Dry uses a patented system, P.U.R.T.® (Pet Urine Removal Treatment) to explode the urine crystals and break down the enzymes which gets rid of the pet urine odor forever.

Industry experts suggest that homeowners clean their carpets every 3-6 months especially homes with kids, pets or if someone in your home has asthmas or allergies. Regular cleaning will not only improve your home’s appearance, but it will eliminate germs and allergens, improve your home’s indoor air quality and extend the life of your carpeting.

We use our proprietary hot carbonating extraction cleaning method, featuring our core cleaner The Natural, hen cleaning upholstery as well. The carbonated cleaning bubbles release dirt, soil, airborne allergens and spots from the upholstery fibers. Then, we use our extraction equipment to remove the cleaning solution, dirt, soil and airborne contaminants from your furniture, leaving it with a deeper, healthier clean than other alternatives.

Be careful not to accidentally set the stain in your carpet by trying to remove it yourself. Most stains will set if scrubbed, making them more difficult to remove. Take a damp rag and place it over the stain to prevent it from setting. Then, call the professionals at Chem-Dry to come remove the stain for you. We have professional-grade stain removal products, many of which work at a molecular level, to remove tough stains.

No, Chem-Dry is not a steam cleaner. Chem-Dry uses carbonation to lift up dirt and grime from your carpets so we do not need to use the gallons of water that typical steam cleaners use.

We can't speak for other carpet cleaning companies, but all of the ingredients in Chem-Dry's primary cleaner, The Natural, are on the F.D.A.'s G.R.A.S. (Generally Recognized as Safe) list and are safe for your carpets, your home and your family. The Natural does not contain any soaps or harsh chemicals.

Most new carpets come with a factory-applied protectant but this wears off over time. Reapplying a protectant on your carpets can help resist stains and soiling, so your carpets will stay cleaner longer. Another reason protectant is a smart investment is that it slows the aging and wearing process and can extend the life of your carpets.
