The U.S. carpet cleaning industry is substantial and is growing along with the population. Consider these points:

  • The carpet cleaning industry has experienced historic growth, topping out at $5 billion in 2017, and expected to grow another 1-2% in 2018.

  • Chem-Dry is a well-known, legacy brand with more than 40 years of experience.

Our unique Hot Carbonating Extraction cleaning process uses Green Certified Solutions and 80% less water to eliminate dust, dirt, oils and allergens in carpet fibers, as well as other types of surfaces. This process allows carpets to dry more quickly and remain cleaner and healthier for longer than any other method. This gives us an edge in the industry, and we are proud to carry the seal of approval for our process from the Carpet and Rug Institute.
