HOME HEALTH STUDYFind out how Chem-Dry of OKC/Edmond helps make your home a healthier place
Chem-Dry Cleans For Your Health—Like No One Else
Your home is full of allergens and bacteria. Did you know that your carpets and upholstery work to trap these harmful particles and keep them out of the air? Oddly enough, this process is crucial for maintaining a healthy home and indoor air quality. For the 1 in 5 Americans (roughly 60 million) that have allergies or asthma, removal of airborne allergens and other molecules is especially important.
The result is a home that is cleaner and fresher for you and your family. However, it also means you have bacteria and allergen filled furniture and carpets. When these things get too dirty, they can no longer effectively filter your air. That’s where Chem-Dry of OKC/Edmond comes in!
Independent Study Results
We know that you want the healthiest possible home for your family—especially when you have asthma or other health concerns to consider. Chem-Dry wants the best for you and your home too. That’s why we had an independent air quality lab test Chem-Dry’s cleaning methods and report on the results.
The study tested our innovative Hot Carbonated Extraction (HCE) carpet and upholstery cleaning method. We not only tested allergen and bacteria removal in our carpet cleaning, but also our upholstery cleaning and our pet urine removal treatment (P.U.R.T.®). A cross-section of various homes throughout the U.S. and the rest of the world were used in the study.
Carpet and Upholstery Cleaning
- Chem-Dry removes 97.4% of allergens from carpets.
- It was consistently found that 99% of allergens were removed from upholstery.
- Additionally, 89% of airborne bacteria is eliminated and significantly improves indoor air quality. This test incorporated the addition of a sanitizer to the cleaning process.
Pet Urine Removal Treatment (P.U.R.T.®)
Common odor sources from cat and dog urine were tested against Chem-Dry’s cleaning process:
- Chem-Dry’s Pet Urine Removal treatment is 99.9% effective on average at eliminating pet urine odors.
- P.U.R.T.® removes an average of 99.2% of bacteria from pet urine stains in carpets
Tile, Stone, and Grout Cleaning
The independent lab tested our tile and grout cleaning process along with a sanitizer (using Milgo Plus in some tests and Benefect Decon 30 in others) on tile surfaces.
- Our tile,stone, and grout cleaning process, along with a sanitizer, removed an average of 98.6% of the bacteria from the tile surfaces.
Tested & Proven Results with Chem-Dry of OKC/Edmond
Indoor air quality is especially important to those who suffer from allergies or asthma, but it impacts all of us. Too many allergens in the air make it hard to breathe and can prompt an allergic reaction or asthma attack in prone individuals.
If you think that indoor air quality doesn’t affect you, consider that, on average, people spend 90% of their time indoors. It turns out that one of the best ways to control air quality is keeping your carpets clean. Professional carpet cleaning is important for the health of your home and your family. However, not all carpet cleaning services are alike. This is what makes Chem-Dry of OKC/Edmond so much more effective than other Oklahoma City carpet cleaning companies.
We dare you to try and find another local carpet cleaner that has put as much time and money into research and product improvement. Chem-Dry works hard to ensure your home is cleaner and healthier.
*Based on studies conducted by independent laboratories of Chem-Dry’s HCE (Hot Carbonating Extraction), P.U.R.T. (Pet Urine Removal Treatment), Granite Countertop Renewal, and Tile, Stone & Grout cleaning processes. Allergens tested were dog and cat dander and dust mite allergen. Pet odor results based on testing with the most common odor sources found in dog and cat urine. Pet urine bacteria results based on Chem-Dry’s HCE cleaning process and a sanitizer, combined with P.U.R.T. All bacteria results include use of sanitizer. Figures are an average across multiple tests.
