Carpet cleaning is a massive market. Carpet makes up more than 47 percent of all residential floor coverings in the United States, and Chem-Dry has devised a better way to clean it and keep it clean. Since our founding in 1977, we've used a patented method of Hot Carbonated Water Extraction to attack dirt, dust, oils and allergens in carpet fibers and on hard surfaces.
