HOME HEALTH STUDY
Chem-Dry Four Seasons is Your Trusted Partner in Removing Allergens and Bacteria from Your Home
Carpets as well as area rugs and upholstered furniture act as giant filters, trapping allergens and bacteria and keeping them out of the air we breathe. But, just like an air filter, carpets become full over time and must be properly cleaned to remain most effective at trapping particulates as they settle from the air. This is especially important for the 1 in 5 Americans (roughly 60 million) living with allergies or asthma. You can ensure healthier indoor air in your home by keeping your carpets clean and in good condition through regular vacuuming and having your carpets, rugs and upholstery professionally cleaned every 3 to 4 months to rid your home of common allergens and bacteria.
Chem-Dry commissioned a leading independent air quality laboratory to conduct a study with the goal of quantifying the healthfulness of our innovative Hot Carbonated Extraction (HCE) carpet and upholstery cleaning method. We tested not only allergen and bacteria removal in our carpet cleaning, but also our upholstery cleaning and our Pet Urine Removal Treatment (P.U.R.T.®). This study used a cross-section of various consumer homes throughout both the US and the rest of the world.
Here are the results from the final report:
Carpet & Upholstery
Chem-Dry removes 98.1% of common household allergens from carpets and upholstery. The common household allergens tested were cat dander, dog dander and dust mite allergens. This broke down further into the respective services as follows:
- We remove 97.4% of allergens from carpets.
- We remove 99.1% of allergens from upholstery.
- We remove 89.0% of airborne bacteria in the home, significantly improving indoor air quality. This test incorporated the addition of a sanitizer to the cleaning process.
Pet Urine Removal Treatment (P.U.R.T.®)
This test showed that Chem-Dry’s process yields significant results against the most common odor sources from cat and dog urine:
- Our P.U.R.T.® treatment is 99.9% effective on average at eliminating pet urine odors.
- Our P.U.R.T.® treatment removes an average of 99.2% of the bacteria from the pet urine stains in the carpets.
Tested and Proven Results
REMOVING ALLERGENS FROM YOUR HOME
All of us, and particularly those who suffer from allergies and disorders like asthma, are greatly impacted by indoor air quality and the amount of allergens and bacteria trapped in our homes that can trigger an attack. Considering that and the fact that we spend an average of 90% of our time indoors, professional carpet cleaning serves an important function in the health of your home and your family. However, not all carpet cleaning services are alike. To find out how big an impact a Chem-Dry cleaning can have on home health, we thought it would be helpful to measure how effective our cleaning process is in eliminating unhealthy and unwanted elements from your home. So we commissioned a leading independent air quality laboratory to conduct a study using Chem-Dry’s Hot Carbonating Extraction (HCE) process in multiple homes. The lab found that Chem-Dry removes an average of 98.1% of common household allergens from the carpets and upholstery we clean. The common allergens we tested include cat and dog dander and dust mite allergen.
REMOVING BACTERIA, IMPROVING INDOOR AIR QUALITY
Indoor air quality is also a significant home health concern because the average home harbors about 200,000 bacteria for every square inch of carpet. As the bacteria builds up, the bacteria lurking in your carpets gets stirred up and circulates in the air your family is breathing unless you clean it. A Chem-Dry carpet cleaning is not only effective at removing the bacteria from the carpets we clean, but it also improves the air quality in your home. The same leading independent air quality laboratory found that, when adding sanitizer to our HCE carpet cleaning process, we removed an average of 89% of the bacteria in the air and 82.3% of the bacteria from carpets.
We want you to breathe easier about the healthfulness of your home and your family. Whether you suffer from allergies or asthma or you just want to provide the healthiest home for your family, a Chem-Dry carpet cleaning can help you remove the allergens and bacteria hiding in your home and improve your indoor air quality. Because Chem-Dry cleans for your health like no one else, contact us to ensure a safe and healthy home environment for your family.
