HOME HEALTH STUDYFind out how we make your home healthier!
Your Healthy Home Starts Here™
Carpets, area rugs, and upholstery act as giant air filters. They trap allergens and bacteria and actually help keep them out of the air we breathe. Just like an air filter, carpets become full over time and must be properly cleaned to effectively eliminate contaminant particles. This is especially important for the 1 in 5 Americans (roughly 60 million) living with allergies or asthma. Our mission at Elmer’s Chem-Dry is to help people live healthier lives in a cleaner environment!
Chem-Dry’s Home Health Study Results
Elmer’s Chem-Dry is committed to providing you with superior solutions and services that you can trust to keep your home clean, safe, and healthy. Using a green-certified solution and our Hot Carbonating Extraction cleaning method, we deliver a deeper, longer-lasting clean that leaves you with peace of mind and a healthier environment for your family.
You can have healthier indoor air in your home by keeping your carpets clean and in good condition through regular vacuuming. Additionally, having your carpets, rugs, and furniture professionally cleaned every 6 months will help rid your home of common allergens and bacteria.
To ensure that our processes provide a clean and healthy home, we had independent laboratories test our core cleaning methods. We tested them against some of the most common unhealthy elements found in homes—allergens and bacteria. We’re happy to share those results with you!
Carpet and Upholstery Cleaning
The lab tested Chem-Dry’s Hot Carbonating Extraction (HCE) cleaning process that’s used to clean carpets and upholstery. The lab found that we remove an average of 98.1% of common household allergens from carpets and upholstery.*
The lab also discovered that when a sanitizer is added to the HCE process, we remove an average of 89% of airborne bacteria in the home and 82.3% of bacteria in carpets.*
Pet Urine Removal Treatment (P.U.R.T.)
At Elmer’s Chem-Dry, we use our revolutionary P.U.R.T for pet stain removal in Fort Smith. The lab conducted multiple tests of P.U.R.T. on common pet odor sources such as dog and cat urine.
The lab found that P.U.R.T. removes an average of 99.9% of pet urine odors from carpets.* When used with our HCE process and a sanitizer, P.U.R.T. removes an average of 99.2% of the bacteria from pet urine stains in carpets.*
Stone, Tile, and Grout Cleaning
Another service that the lab examined was our tile, and grout cleaning process, which was tested on several tile surfaces in multiple homes.
The lab concluded that when used with a sanitizer, our tile, stone, and grout cleaning process, removes an average of 98.6% of bacteria from these surfaces.*
Remove Allergens and Bacteria from Your Home
Indoor air quality is a major health concern in your home. The average home can harbor as much as 200,000 bacteria for every square inch of carpet. As this bacteria builds up, it gets released and circulates in the air your family breathes. Because a lot of time is spent indoors, selecting a trusted professional with safe and healthy cleaning processes is essential to get your carpet, upholstery, tile, and more cleaner.
Whether you suffer from allergies or asthma or you just want to provide a healthy home for your family, our carpet cleaning method will help you remove the allergens and bacteria hiding in your home and improve your indoor air quality. We care for your health, so contact us today to ensure a safe and healthy home environment for you and your family!
