Chem-Dry Home Health Study

To demonstrate the impact Chem-Dry has on home health, we commissioned a leading independent air quality laboratory to conduct a study for us in 2014 to quantify the effectiveness of our Hot Carbonated Extraction (HCE) cleaning method. We decided to not only test allergen and bacteria removal from carpets but also allergen removal from upholstery. We also tested our pet urine removal and tile & grout services.

The study was conducted in a cross-section of consumer homes in the U.S. and abroad, using our HCE process and a pre-spray. Common allergens include cat and dog dander and dust mite allergen. Here are the results:

  • First, we remove an average of 97.4% of allergens from carpets.
  • Second, we remove an average of 99.1% of allergens from upholstery.
  • Third, we remove an average of 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.

  • 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.

Tile, Stone & Grout

The independent lab tested our Tile, Stone & 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 & Grout cleaning process, along with a sanitizer, removed an average of 98.6% of the bacteria from the tile surfaces.

Improve Your Home’s Indoor Air Quality

The average home harbors about 200,000 bacteria for every square inch of carpet, making indoor air quality a significant home health concern. As the bacteria build-up, the bacteria lurking in your carpets get stirred up and circulate in your family’s air. At Van’s Chem-Dry carpet cleaning is not only effective at removing the bacteria from the carpets we clean, but it also dramatically 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.


Breathe Easier With Chem-Dry

Your carpet and furniture are like giant air filters. While they serve other important purposes, they contribute largely to the air quality that you breathe inside your own home. After some time of not being professionally cleaned, they get full of dirt and allergens and can’t filter your air properly. Nearly 1 in 5 Americans (roughly 60 million) live with allergies or asthma, which can be incited from dirt or allergens circulating in your home.

At Chem-Dry, we want you to breathe easier about the healthfulness of your home and your family. Whether you suffer from allergies or asthma or you wish 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 Van’s Chem-Dry right here in Sacramento to ensure a safe and healthy home environment for your family.
