At Great American Chem-Dry, we’re dedicated to making your home a safe, happy, and healthy environment for you and your family. Not only are we dedicated to making your life better, but our goal is to do it while being environmentally conscious. Unlike other competitors, we use an all-natural, non-toxic cleaner, while also conserving water. We make all these efforts to ensure we are staying green
Less Water Means Less Waste
Typically when carpet cleaning, most other brands will pump gallons and gallons of water into your carpet at very high pressures in order to loosen the dirt particles. Not only does this often end up pushing the dirt deeper into the carpet, but it wastes a huge amount of water. Particularly in areas that are experiencing a drought, water is an extremely precious commodity that should be conserved.
Chem-Dry’s Hot Carbonating Extraction (HCE) process, on the other hand, uses only about one-fifth the volume of water as traditional steam cleaning. That’s 80% less water! Instead of relying on the volume and pressure of the water to release the dirt particles, the carbonated bubbles from The Natural™ gently agitate and lift the dirt and allergens away. The end result is a cleaner carpet with less wasted water and a much faster drying time. That’s right, less disruption in your home and no more tip-toeing on slightly damp floors for hours!
The Natural™ Keeps Things Environmentally Friendly
In the vast majority of our cleaning services, we use our proprietary, non-toxic, natural carpet cleaning solution, The Natural™. That’s more than just a name we use, though. The Natural™ is a blend of completely natural ingredients, containing absolutely zero soaps, solvents, detergents, or enzymes that could contaminate the water table or harm the plants and wildlife around your home.
Instead of harsh chemicals, The Natural™ relies on the power of carbonation. That’s right—carbonation. The same bubbles that tickle your nose when you drink a soft drink. During our hot carbonation extraction (HCE) process, The Natural™ releases millions of tiny bubbles into your carpet, which attach to and break apart the dirt particles that are clinging to the carpet’s fibers. We then use specialized machines to extract the solution, dirt and all, from deep inside your carpet, leaving a fresh, clean room with no dangerous chemicals and no soapy residue. Every ingredient in The Natural™ is on the FDA G.R.A.S. (Generally Recognized as Safe) list, so you know it’s safe for your family and safe for the environment.
We know that there is more to being green than just saying the words and making the claims. In order to reassure customers that our services and products are environmentally safe, we follow rigorous standards to qualify for green certification. In addition to The Natural™, we use several other Green-Certified products, from our stain removers and carpet deodorizers to our proprietary P.U.R.T. (Pet Urine Removal Treatment) liquid. We don’t take our responsibility to take care of the environment lightly, and we are willing to put in the work to make sure we fulfill that duty.
