Have a Stain Free School Year by Adding Protectant to Your Carpet




The fall season is fast approaching, and that usually means the children are back in school and your house is probably suffering from the bacteria's that have been left behind from an adventurous summer. What better time for carpet cleaning than the months of August and September? Start the school year off on the right foot by cleaning your carpets with All Pro Chem-Dry. While the kids are in school give All Pro Chem-dry a call to get a quick productive carpet cleaning that only takes 1-2 hours to dry.

Raise the health and state of mind of your family by letting All Pro Chem-Dry place a carpet protectant in your house. We understand that incidents happen, particularly with new school year functions, so be equipped to fight back against the mishaps in your household by applying protectant on your carpet. Protectant is a product we provide that will act as an invisible shield to defend and protect your carpet from bothersome stains. Protectant provides you with more time to clean spills before they transform into nasty stains.

There is for the most part some type of protectant on freshly placed carpet but in the long run that protectant wears off. We realize that it’s a headache to clean and add protectant to your carpet, but if you know that you are overdue for a carpet cleaning and would also like to include protectant, All Pro Chem-Dry are the carpet cleaning agents for you. Get ready for the long term and give your home a clean new feel with carpet cleaning and protectant treatment. Be sure that your carpets are safe and sound by incorporating protectant this school year! Loosen up and breathe easy, knowing that All Pro Chem-Dry technicians are highly trained and certified to improve the life of your carpet!

Spot Removal

If you've ever invested in new carpet, there's nothing worse than the panic that comes because of a potentially permanent stain. When you do spill something on that carpet of yours, the following questions typically come up:


  • Do I have to douse it, using water?
  • Am I supposed to dab or scrub?
  • Are any specific cleaning products essential?
  • What's the most effective way to clean this up?
  • Do I need a professional cleaner to help me out?
  • How much time do I have before permanent damage is done?
  • Are there some stains that require a different cleaning process than others?
  • Where in the world can I get some advice about how to get rid of this?

Fortunately for you, All Pro Chem-Dry has the answer to all of those questions! Yes, there are specific cleaning products that should be used to get difficult stains out.

We all are grateful for our families. In spite of that, there are things they do that bother us. Various people have the standard "obnoxious eater" in their family. Others have parents that volunteer them for every opportunity available. Brothers and sisters can be overprotective, "clothes stealers", "secret tellers", and "cool kid wanna-be's". Pets are incredible. They're there when we need them. They bring joy to our homes. Irrespective of how they can be man's best friend, though, there's one thing they do from time to time that truly can give us a difficult time. Let's be honest, they're messy. Whether it's slobbering, tracking in mud and dirt, or having an "accident", they can make that home of ours a little bit dirtier than it ought to be.

2014_0109_MWA_CHM_246_R3 (2).jpg

The good news is, All Pro Chem-Dry has the solution to any and all pet-related blemishes. It's not only hard to handle a pet accident when it's happened, at times the most challenging part is recognizing where previous mishaps may have taken place. Chem-Dry has found a way to identify the pet mishaps in your home and removing them (together with the smell) from your home by using our revolutionary cleaning product called P.U.R.T. (Pet Urine Removal Treatment). This product will contact the source of odors and immediately begin a chemical reaction that, in turn, will literally destroy urine odor.

Here's how the P.U.R.T. process works:

  • A trained professional will find the odor source using a black light or penetrating moisture meter and determine the best plan of attack.
  • In worst cases they may need to pull up carpet for further inspection. If necessary padding will be replaced.
  • If necessary technicians will apply an odor blocking resin to the sub-floor.
  • After all prep work is complete, the area is rinsed with our deep cleaning carbonating cleaning solution. Any liquid or loose urine crystals are then extracted using hot water.
  • Next, we apply our proprietary cleaning product, P.U.R.T., generously to tack strip, sub-floor, baseboards and the carpet backing.
  • Over the next 24 - 36 hours, P.U.R.T. will go to work breaking down all the odor causing elements, leaving no odor remnants behind for a fresh smelling, healthy clean. The odors will be gone for good.

So, if that cherished member of your family does make a mess in your home, give All Pro Chem-Dry a call without delay!

Filtration Lines

Filtration Lines_before_lowres.jpg

When you've lived in your home for a while, you'll start to notice a discoloration on the carpet along the baseboards. We call these filtration lines. When compared to lighter carpet they really stand out!

You may have attributed these lines to the vacuum not being able to reach that close to the baseboards - This is only part of the problem. Even the best built homes have small spaces between boards where air can travel. Temperature and pressure differences throughout your home causes air to shift and pass between these spaces - often located underneath walls and doors. When the air passes through the carpet near these areas, anything it might be carrying can get caught in the carpet fibers. Microscopic dirt, dust, oils, and many other things in the air can soil the carpet over time.

Getting rid of filtration lines is hard to do without the right equipment. It is a process requiring deep cleaning, agitation, and the right cleaning solution. The Professionals at All Pro Chem-Dry have years of experience in cleaning filtration lines. We have powerful solutions that break up the dirt and oil and lift them to the surface where they can be removed permanently from your home. Our green certified cleaning solutions also leave no residue, so your carpets will resist soiling for longer than they would if you had cleaned them by some other means. Don't look any further, the professionals at All Pro Chem-Dry have the experience and equipment to bring you a cleaner, drier, and healthier home.

Give us a call today at All Pro Chem-Dry to get rid of your filtration lines and provide a deeper clean that you can trust!

The Top 5 Scariest Things Hiding in Your Carpet

Here’s something to think about: every day, you walk on your carpet, your pets play on it and your kids crawl on it. Just how safe do you think that is? Just in time for Halloween – or, just after Halloween – we’ve made a list of the 5 scariest things hiding in your carpet that a vacuum cleaner just can’t get rid of.

#5 – Allergens

If you’re like over half of the population in the United States, you suffer from allergies – and if you don’t, chances are that someone in your family does. Few people know that carpet virtually acts as an allergen storage unit, allowing them to be active in your home all year round and make you continually miserable.


#4 – Chemicals

You can’t even imagine how many harmful substances are lodged in your carpet fibers – and it doesn’t just happen over time. New carpets typically house formaldehyde, toluene, styrene, acetone and benzene, some of which are even considered to cause cancer by the EPA. Even the new carpet smell that everyone loves is caused by 4-PC, a chemical that is known to cause eye and respiratory problems.


#3 – Mold


Even though steam cleaning can potentially help your carpet in some ways, mold prevention is not one of them. During the steam cleaning process, gallons of water are dumped on to your carpet, pushing dirt and grime deep down into your padding and creating a breeding ground for mold and bacteria underneath your carpet.

#2 – Bacteria


If you can believe it, the bottom of your shoes carry more bacteria than a toilet seat. Do you wear your shoes when you’re walking on your carpet? If so, you’re tracking millions of kinds of bacteria, harmful or not, onto your carpet, not to mention what your kids and pets bring into the house on a daily basis. Yikes.

#1 - Dust Mites


 And you thought spiders were scary! Just look at that thing. There’s no wonder this tops our list of the scariest things living in your carpet. These things are what scientists call cosmopolitan pyroglyphidae, and they live in your carpet and survive on flakes of your skin. Aside from being incredibly creepy, they are a common cause of allergic and asthma symptoms throughout the world and can induce wheezing. Disgusting, huh?

Even though those are pretty scary things to have living in your home, there’s no reason to worry. Chem-Dry uses an all-natural process that is safe for your home and that reduces the risk of mold and bacteria, in addition to the fastest dry times on the market. Give us a call and let us help you get rid of what’s been hiding in your carpet.

There are many different carpet cleaners to choose from - with so many different claims! But with Chem-Dry you can rest assured that you're receiving the highest quality carpet cleaning. If you want your carpets to feel and look brand new again, Chem-Dry's unique method using the power of carbonation is for you!

Since carbonation has natural “lifting” qualities, it always rises to the top. Anyone who has ever poured a carbonated drink into a glass has seen this principle in action, as the bubbles always rise to the top. Using that same principle, Chem-Dry’s solution penetrates deep into your carpets, creating an explosive reaction that releases dirt and grime from individual fibers. Our equipment will safely gather the unwanted particles once they are lifted to the surface. Using hot water, the particles are pulled away. This method has proven effective in giving your carpets a deeper and richer clean.

This is compared to steam cleaning where gallons of water are harsh soaps are dumped into your carpets. Rather than actually extracting the mess this pushes it deeper down, hiding the dirt and creating a breeding ground for mold and bacteria. Unnecessary amounts of water will make it so your carpets stay wet longer - typically 1-2 days. If we compare that to our method that uses just a fraction of the moisture, you can see the best benefit of Chem-Dry is that your clean carpets will be dry in just 1-2 hours. What that means is that Chem-Dry is 24 times faster than steam cleaners! That’s the Chem-Dry difference.

Since we offer our incredible services at such affordable prices, we're confident our service can fit any home or budget. Do what you and your family deserve, Call today to schedule an appointment!

Getting your carpets professionally cleaned is definitely helpful, but not always necessary. Actually, most stains and spots would come out quickly and easily with a few tips, which most carpet cleaners won't tell you. The experts want you to call them for all stains and spots. Helping you is our M.O. we want to help you with a few secrets from the real carpet cleaning professionals.

The first solution only requires warm water and a white towel. Simply dampen the stain and then blot it with your towel. Be careful during this process you do no want to damage the integrity of the carpet. Carefully blotting the stain can transfer the spot from the carpet to your white towel. Your cloth will begin to darken with the stain as the spot "transfers" to your towel. Keep checking your towel to see if the stain is transferring. If there is no darkening on your towel, you'll want to stop blotting.

If hot water doesn’t work, the next step is to try club soda. This strategy uses the same principles behind Chem-Dry's world renowned cleaning solutions. Just as you did with warm water, simply blot the stain with a towel, checking periodically for transfer. If these two remedies don't work then its a job for Chem-Dry. The groundbreaking techniques used by Chem-Dry remove particles from individual fibers and then lift them out of your carpet, making us the best choice for all stain removal. Give us a call to put our stain removal to the test!
