OUR SAN DIEGO CLEANING SERVICES
We use a unique approach to carpet cleaning that sets us apart as one of San Diego’s leading cleaners. We use Hot Carbonating Extraction, a powerful cleaning process that requires less moisture than most carpet cleaners and allows your carpets to dry quickly, which makes Great American Chem-Dry the natural choice for cleaner carpets.
Furniture stains & spills don’t stand a chance against our upholstery cleaning pros! We deep clean furniture with Chem-Dry’s® powerful equipment and industry-leading cleaning solutions, which removes virtually any stain & makes your upholstery look like new. Call Great American Chem-Dry and revitalize your furniture today!
With our Pet Urine Removal Treatment (PURT®), even carpets that your pets have nearly ruined can be saved. PURT® is a revolutionary solution specially formulated to remove urine smells instead of just masking the odor. We also work to remove the stain deep at its source to ensure that the spots & odors don’t return.
Rugs can change the look of an entire room, which makes routine cleaning essential. Our area rug cleaning service brings the beauty back into your rugs and removes dirt, stains, and germs. Our team at Great American Chem-Dry can clean nearly any type of area rug, and our rug cleaning solutions dry fast and leave no dirt-attracting residue, so your rugs will stay cleaner longer.
Tile surfaces are a staple of many kitchens & bathrooms and are commonly found in other rooms now as well. Careful cleaning & maintenance is required to keep both tile’s shine & sanitation. Getting into the edges and grout, where bacteria flourishes, can be a tough, time-consuming task. Give us a call & let our team take care of your tile & grout cleaning needs.
We provide commercial cleaning services designed to clean businesses of all types & sizes here in San Diego. We offer carpet, upholstery, area rug, and tile cleaning services at the commercial level. With our proprietary cleaning processes and environmentally safe solutions, your company’s cleaning needs will be in good hands with the Great American Chem-Dry team.
“The owner, Kevin, answered my online job request within minutes. The technician, Rafael, arrived on time, was pleasant, and provided good advice on what treatments to do in each area. Rafael was knowledgeable and did a thorough job. The price was excellent. I would undoubtedly use Great American Chem-Dry again!”

“I have been using Great American Chem-Dry for years. I highly recommend them for their professional and honest service. Kevin has always given me the best deal going at the time, which I greatly appreciate. I have always used the traditional cleaning method but recently tried the hot truck mount cleaning, which I found to be amazing. Great company and great service!”

“I had such a great experience I definitely wanted to post a review! Not only did the owner email me back within 24 hours for a quote, the technician was fantastic! He called ahead of time and was here right when he promised. He was very courteous of everything in my house including my pets and explained every step of the process. He did not scrimp on any of it and you can tell has a lot of passion in his work. I will gladly use them again!”

“Needed to get carpets cleaned as I put my house on the market. Kevin was very responsive, and even able to squeeze in an appointment at the end of his day! He was great to work with, knowledgeable, friendly and thorough and the price was very reasonable. The carpets looked so much better after he was done! Though he also offered to come back out if there was anything I wasn’t happy with as it took about a day to fully see the effects of the cleaning. I’d highly recommend him, and would hire him again!”
– Kristin H.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is Chem-Dry safe for my home?
Chem-Dry’s primary cleaner, The Natural®, is exclusively made up of ingredients that are on the F.D.A.’s G.R.A.S. (Generally Recognized as Safe) list. This means that it is safe for your carpets, home, family, and the environment. Like the name states, The Natural® doesn’t contain any harsh soaps or chemicals, but is rather composed of natural elements that are safe for your family.
How does Chem-Dry compare to steam cleaning?
Great American Chem-Dry’s process is unique. Instead of using steam, we employ millions of microscopic bubbles to explode dirt from deep in your carpet fibers. This way, we only need to use a fraction of the water that typical steam cleaners use. This leads to faster dry times and lower risk of mold or resoiling. After the carbonation releases and lifts the dirt, our high powered equipment extracts the dirt and moisture from the carpet.
Feel free to check out a more detailed comparison of Chem-Dry vs Steam Cleaning.
How often should I clean my carpets?
The EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) recommends you clean your carpets every 3-6 months. If you have kids or pets or if someone in your home has asthmas or allergies, it’s advisable to do it even more frequently. Regular cleaning will not only improve your home’s appearance but will also eliminate germs and allergens, improve your home’s indoor air quality and extend the life of your carpeting. Adding our special sanitizer can even help to fight off Coronavirus. Take a moment to learn more.
Do you follow any safety protocols?
You can trust our staff to keep you as safe as possible during a cleaning appointment. We will wear masks and gloves, practice social distancing, and sanitize our equipment with our special hospital-grade sanitizer. We can also use this sanitizer to wipe down the high-touch point areas of your home to eliminate additional germs and bacteria. In fact, we’re currently offering this wipedown service for free with our Healthy Home Package. Call for more information.
