Chem-Dry’s Commitment to be Green

For Van’s Chem-Dry, our main goal is to make your home the cleanest and healthiest environment possible for you. To achieve this goal, we make sure to offer cleaning services that remove allergens, bacteria, and other harmful toxins from your home. We are dedicated to ensuring that your family has a clean and safe place to be. Nothing makes us happier than knowing our clients are healthy and happy!

Our goals and focus go beyond that, though. Creating a healthy environment in your home is only half the battle. At Van’s Chem-Dry, we realize the importance of taking care of the outside environment as well. This is why Chem-Dry goes to such great lengths to guarantee that our carpet and upholstery cleaning services are entirely safe for you and the environment around you. Chem-Dry’s efforts start with using a natural and non-toxic cleaning solution and go all the way to conserving the most water possible.


Less Water Means Less Waste

Choosing a steam cleaner means you are choosing to pump several gallons of water into your carpet at very high pressures. Not only does this make your carpet dirtier by forcing grime deeper, but it’s also harsher on your carpet and the environment. Steam cleaning wastes an incredible amount of water that is a precious commodity in areas experiencing drought.

For this reason and many others, Chem-Dry uses Hot Carbonating Extraction (HCE) to minimize water usage. In fact, our cleaning method uses just one-fifth the amount of water that steam cleaners use. In place of using pressure to break up dirt particles, the carbonated bubbles from The Natural™ gently agitate and lift dirt and allergens away. This results in a cleaner, healthier carpet with less wasted water and even faster dry time.

The Natural™ Keeps Things Environmentally Friendly

The majority of our cleaning services utilize our proprietary and non-toxic cleaning solution, The Natural™. This incredible solution is a smart combination of completely natural ingredients. It contains no soaps, solvents, detergents, enzymes, or anything else that could potentially contaminate the water table. There is zero chance that any plants or animals in your home will be affected negatively by this solution!

In place of rough chemicals, The Natural™ uses the power of hot carbonation. That’s right—carbonation! The same bubbles you find in your favorite soft drink are a key ingredient in our cleaning process. During the HCE process, millions of microscopic bubbles are released into your carpet and dive deep to get where other cleaning products can’t! Then, we take special extraction equipment to eliminate the solution, dirt, and whatever else is hiding, from deep inside your carpet. This leaves a fresh and clean room with zero toxic chemicals or 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 the environment.



At Van’s Chem-Dry, we realize there is more to being green than just telling you that we’re green. In order to reassure you that we are environmentally conscious, we adhere to rigorous standards to be qualified for green certification. In addition to The Natural™, we have implemented numerous 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 our green certification lightly and will continue to take every appropriate measure to take care of our customers and the environment.
