HOME HEALTH STUDYFind out how we make your home a HEALTHIER home!
Your Healthy Home Starts With Chem-Dry
Carpets, area rugs, and upholstery all 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!
Tested and Proven Results
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!
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.

Hot Carbonating Extraction Carpet Cleaning Makes Homes Healthier
Chem-Dry’s Hot Carbonating Extraction (HCE) process was tested by a leading independent air quality laboratory in multiple homes. The lab concluded 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 allergens. Additionally, when coupled with a sanitizer, we removed an average of 89% of the airborne bacteria and 82.3% of the bacteria in carpets.
Removing Bacteria Improves Indoor Air Quality
Indoor air quality should also be a significant home health concern. That’s because the average home can harbor as much as 200,000 bacteria for every square inch of carpet. As bacteria builds up in your carpet, it gets stirred up and circulates in the air your family is breathing unless you properly clean them. Cleaning with Elmer’s Chem-Dry effectively removes bacteria from carpets, upholstery, and the other surfaces we clean. It also improves the overall air quality in your home.
Pet Urine Removal Treatment (P.U.R.T.)
An independent laboratory also conducted multiple tests on our pet urine odor and stain removal process. In tests against the most common odor sources found in dog and cat urine, the study found that P.U.R.T. removes an average of 99.9% of pet urine odors from carpets. When coupled with our HCE process and a sanitizer, the study also concluded we remove an average of 99.2% of the bacteria from pet urine stains in carpets.
Stone, Tile, and Grout Cleaning
Based on several tests on tile surfaces in multiple homes, our 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.
After each tile cleaning, we also offer to seal your tile and grout. Our tile sealing helps your grout stay cleaner for longer and maintenance is simple because dirt will no longer be able to penetrate deep into the cracks.
Removing Allergens from Your Home
All of us, and particularly the 1 in 5 Americans (roughly 60 million) who suffer from allergies or asthma, are greatly impacted by indoor air quality.

It plays a major role in the health of your home and your family.
