What makes chemdry's cleaning process greenHere at Acme Chem-Dry, we’re dedicated to making your home a clean, healthy environment for your family. Just how do we do that? We make sure that your family has a safe place to live by removing allergens, bacteria, and other toxins from your home. It goes beyond that though. We use a green process to ensure that your home is safe and our environment is protected. From using a natural, non-toxic cleaner to conserving water, Chem-Dry is putting in every effort to ensure that we stay green.

The Environmentally Friendly Natural™ Cleaner

In the vast majority of our cleaning services, we use our proprietary, non-toxic, natural 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. If you’ve ever used club soda to eliminate a stain, you understand the power of carbonation. During our hot carbonation extraction (HCE) process, The Natural™ releases millions of tiny bubbles into your carpet, which break apart the dirt particles clinging to the carpet’s fibers. The bubbles then explode the dirt and grime to surface, where our specialized machines extract it from deep inside your carpet. The end result is 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.

Less Wasted Water

The most common form of carpet cleaning is steam cleaning, but this can actually be bad for the environment. When you have your carpets steam cleaned, the cleaner pumps gallons and gallons of water into your carpet at very high pressures in order to loosen the dirt particles. This often ends up pushing the dirt deeper into the fibers of your carpet, but the damage goes beyond that. This process 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. 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, as a bonus, a much faster drying time.

Green-Certified

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.

There you have it. Acme Chem-Dry is dedicated to being a green cleaner that is safe for your home, your family and the environment. We think every company has the responsibility to do the same.
