what makes Chem-Dry greenIf you’re looking for a green carpet cleaner, you’re in the right place! You might be wondering what makes North American Chem-Dry a great green choice for your carpet cleaning in the Sonoma area. Here’s what makes Chem-Dry green.

Our Commitment to Your Health

At Chem-Dry, we’re dedicated to making your home a clean, healthy environment for your family. By removing allergens, bacteria, and other toxins from your carpets and furniture, we make sure that your family has a clean, safe place to live. We want to make sure that our clients are both happy and healthy!

Our goals go beyond that, though. We don’t just want to make the inside of your home a healthy environment. We recognize how important it is to care for the wider environment as well. After all, we are a locally owned company and we care for our local California environment! That’s why Chem-Dry works so hard to make sure that our carpet and upholstery cleaning processes and products are safe for your family and safe for the environment. From using a non-toxic cleaner to conserving water, Chem-Dry is putting in every effort to ensure that we stay green.

The Natural™ Cleaning Solution

In the vast majority of our cleaning services, we use our proprietary, non-toxic, natural carpet cleaning solution, The Natural™. That’s more than just a name we use, though. The Natural™ is a blend of ingredients copied straight from nature. It contains 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. That’s right—carbonation. During our hot carbonation extraction (HCE) process, The Natural™ releases millions of tiny bubbles into your carpet, which attach to and break apart the dirt particles that are clinging to the carpet fibers. We then use specialized machines to extract the solution, dirt and all, from deep inside your carpet, leaving 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 the environment.

Water Conservation 

When you have your carpets steam cleaned, the cleaner will pump gallons and gallons of water into your carpet at very high pressures in order to loosen the dirt particles. Not only does this often end up pushing the dirt deeper into the carpet, but it wastes a huge amount of water. As Californians, we all know how important conserving water is! 

That’s why Chem-Dry uses less water than traditional steam cleaners. Chem-Dry’s Hot Carbonating Extraction (HCE) process uses only about one-fifth of the volume of water as traditional steam cleaning. Instead of relying on the volume and pressure of the water to release the dirt particles, we use the power of carbonated bubbles to gently agitate and lift the dirt and allergens away. The end result is a cleaner carpet with less wasted water. (An added bonus: your carpets dry much faster!)

Green-Certified Solutions

Many companies claim to be eco-friendly. In order to reassure customers that our services and products are actually environmentally safe, we follow rigorous standards for our main cleaning solution, The Natural™, 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. You can trust that all of these products are safe for your family and the environment at large. 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.
