Dr. Chem-Dry Cares

Dr. Chem-Dry Carpet & Tile Cleaning is dedicated to helping families maintain a happy, healthy home. That commitment extends to all family members, including pets. Dr. Chem-Dry is proud to offer an array of superior cleaning services – including our revolutionary Pet Urine Removal Treatment (P.U.R.T.) – that help pet owners maintain a safe, clean and healthy home for them, their kids and their pets.

As an extension to this commitment, Dr. Chem-Dry is raising funds for Best Friends Animal Society® to encourage pet adoption and support no-kill animal shelters across the country. See below how you can help.

More than 9,000 cats and dogs are killed every day in shelters around the United States. This is a sad reality but can be overcome by helping people adopt pets and by implementing spay/neuter programs to reduce the number of animals entering shelters.

Best Friends Animal Society has been building effective programs to save animals for over 30 years. Before they began, nearly 17 million animals were killed in shelters every year. Today, that number is down to about 4 million. Best Friends is committed to working hard every day until that number reaches zero.

Please join us in supporting this worthy and important cause. Your donations go directly to Best Friends Animal Society® and their SaveThem All® network of over 1,500 no-kill shelters across the country.

Guide to Offensive Pet Odors

We all would do anything for our pets. Americans in particular have a love for dogs. These family members bring tons of fun into our lives and homes every day. We snuggle with them in our home, take them for walks at the park, and play frisbee with them outside. They are mans best friend.

Our cuddly little family members need regular grooming and bathing along with health check-ups to stay healthy and happy just like us. If we don’t do this, our pets can become the source of unpleasant odors and unhealthy elements in the home. Vacuuming your carpet and upholstery regularly helps. Periodic deeper cleanings by a professional carpet and upholstery cleaner can be very effective at removing unwanted odors from your pets in your home.
