Dr. Chem-Dry and the Power of Carbonation: the Green Solution
Dr. Chem-Dry is able to clean carpets and upholstery thoroughly using less water than other cleaning solutions and no harmful chemicals. A huge part of why this is possible is our Hot Carbonating Extraction (HCE) process that uses 80% less water than a typical steam cleaner. Rather than using regular carpet and steam cleaning techniques — which involve pumping tons of water and soap into your carpet — Dr. Chem-Dry’s process uses the power of carbonation — millions of tiny little bubbles are applied to loosen and lift the dirt to the surface so that it can be easily removed using powerful extraction equipment.
Other carpet cleaning methods that use high pressure can cause dirt to get inadvertently trapped at the base of the carpet fibers, Dr. Chem-Dry’s method more effectively frees up dirt which can then be extracted with our carpet cleaning truck mounts. The HCE process has been tested and found to remove 98% of allergens from your carpet, and 89% of airborne bacteria when adding a sanitizer. What’s more, it accomplishes this with all-natural ingredients.
If you have pets, Dr. Chem-Dry’s Pet Urine Removal Treatment along with our Hot Carbonating Extraction process means that Dr. Chem-Dry is the best carpet cleaner for pet urine and the stains and odors associated with pet accidents. It is reassuring to know that Chem-Dry can provide a thorough clean that is safe and non-toxic since owning pets such as dogs and cats can often mean cleaning carpets regularly. Using less water than traditional methods means your carpet can be dry and ready to walk on in just a couple of hours.
Dr. Chem-Dry is not only the best carpet cleaner for pet urine and stains, but one of the only carpet cleaning services that is truly dedicated to safe and non-toxic green solutions that actually clean. Whether you need to clean your carpet, upholstery, stone or tile and grout, call Dr. Chem-Dry today.

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.
Dr. Chem-Dry’s industry-leading carpet cleaning processes is designed to provide families with a healthier home and live happier. For first-time pet adopters, one major roadblock can be the fear of pet urine odors & stains in the home. A national consumer research study done recently, found that 80% of people that own pets, have experienced pet urine accidents in their homes. When using Dr. Chem-Dry’s Pet Urine Removal Treatment (P.U.R.T) along with our Hot Carbonating Extraction (HCE) cleaning process, it delivers a deep, long-lasting clean for carpets and can eliminate odors, bacteria and stains that come from pet accidents.

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.

Will Pets Ruin My Stone Floors?
Every pet owner knows that adding an animal friend to your life can bring you a lot of love and companionship. It can also bring you a lot of messes to clean up. No matter how well you train your pets, it’s only a matter of time before an accident happens. Pet stains can be hard to clean, they can warp your floors and leave a bad odor in your home. You might think if you have stone floors that you won’t have to worry about the corrosive effects of pet urine, but you’d be wrong.
If you can think of a stain, we’ve cleaned it. At Dr. Chem-Dry, we have years of experience working with home and business owners to keep their places clean and tidy. We’ve seen firsthand just how damaging pet stains can be on carpet and stone flooring. Here are some things that all pet owners with stone flooring should keep in mind.

How to Prevent Pet Odor at Home
Pets can bring a lot of life and love into your home, but they can also bring a whole host of odors. It takes work to keep your house pet-odor free, but it’s absolutely worth it.
At Dr. Chem-Dry Carpet & Tile Cleaning, we’ve got years of experiencing helping homeowners keep their houses clean and smelling fresh. These are a few things you can do to prevent pet odors from taking over your home.
Know Your Smells
Being aware of what your house normally smells like is the best way to notice when something is amiss. If something in your home smells “off”, this could be a warning sign that pet odor is beginning to settle in. Be on the lookout for anything smells musty or sharply pungent.
One of the best ways to keep pet odors out of your home is to not neglect picking up after your pet. Clean your cat’s litter box daily. If your dog uses your yard to go to the bathroom, scoop it up immediately afterward; that smell can drift inside and make itself at home.

It’s especially important to deodorize after vacuuming your home: this one-two punch can go a long way towards keeping your house odor free. A simple way to combat pet odor is to deodorize it using commercial products like Febreze or pet odor removers.
But be aware of certain commercial pet odor removers that can leave a residue in your carpet, causing dirt to collect. The professional strength World Famous Pet Odor Remover from Chem-Dry can be purchased by calling us at 602-243-6379. You can also find the consumer strength version at a local Home Depot store. This product is safe for all carpet, has no dirt-attracting residue, and is great for those pet urine accidents that happen in between professional cleanings.
Any good pet owner knows that regular baths help to keep your furry friend healthy, but they also keep your home smelling cleaner for longer. A smelly pet can lead to a smelly home, so you want to wash them regularly (most vets and groomers recommend doing this weekly). Also be sure to dry your pets thoroughly afterward — wet dog is not the first thing you want people to smell when they go to your house.
Most pet owners don’t realize that pet odors can get trapped in their air filter, which can cause their entire home to smell. You should change out your HVAC filters on a monthly basis to keep this from happening. You could also install an air filtration system to help remove foul pet odors. Our sister company Cook Bros. Cleaning & Restoration, Inc. can clean your air ducts, removing any dust or pet dander. Give them a call today at 602-246-7999 for pricing and information.
Sometimes the best way to deal with a problem is to counter it with its opposite. Fill your home with pleasant smells. Cook and bake delicious smelling foods like bread and pies. Burn incense to give your home a variety of pleasant smoky smells. Use little spritzes of cologne or perfume to sweeten the air and mask problem areas, and choose a kitty litter with baking soda, which is one of the best natural deodorizers.
You should vacuum your home regularly. Your pets will shed, causing dander, oils and dirt to accumulate on your floors. All of these can add up over time to give your home a musty smell. Be sure to pay attention to the areas in your home where your pets like to spend the most time — these are the spots where you should give some extra focus when you’re vacuuming.
You should also have your carpets cleaned regularly to rid the fibers of pet hair, dander, and urine residue. Choose a specially-designed cleaning service like Dr. Chem-Dry’s pet odor and urine removal, which combines an antibacterial cleaner and deep-cleaning technology to leave your home healthier for both you and your pet.
