A common question we get from many of our customers here in VA Beach is “What kind of carpet cleaning chemicals do you use?” Many people assume that since we use the word “Chem” in our name that our cleaning process uses a harsh chemical solution. Fortunately, that isn’t the case.

All of the ingredients in our main cleaning solution are 100% natural; that is why we call it “The Natural.” All of the cleaning elements used in our green-certified solution can be found on the FDA’s Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS) list. We provide an environmentally safe cleaning solution that is toxin-free, and we have also made it safe for your home, family and pets!

How do we get the excellent carpet cleaning results without using nasty chemicals? We use the same ingredient that makes club soda a quick fix for clothing stains, carbonation. Southside Chem-Dry provides a powerful, healthy clean by utilizing the natural reaction of water mixed with carbon dioxide. We call our method Hot Carbonating Extraction (HCE).

How it works:

Step one of our unique process involves using high-tech equipment to apply the carbonated solution, exploding dirt and grime from your carpets in the process. In no time, the carbonated bubbles are working to break down the dirt that is attached to your carpet’s threads. Then, the hot water extraction process uses suction to remove the loose material from the carpet, leaving behind only clean, stain-free carpet.

Perhaps the best part, the whole process is accomplished using only minimal amounts of water. By cutting back on the water used in the cleaning process we avoid leaving behind unnecessary soapy residues that can attract dust, dirt and reappearing spots. Minimal water usage also results in faster drying times so your family can get back on your floors in only a few hours. In addition, low moisture decreases the possibility of mold or mildew growth from the excess water that can soak into the carpet’s padding.

By using our natural cleaning solution paired with an environmentally efficient cleaning method, we are able to ensure a deep, powerful clean that is also healthy. This is why we are one of Norfolk, Portsmouth, Chesapeake and Virginia Beach’s most trusted names for superior carpet cleaning: Southside Chem-Dry.

So, what chemicals does our carpet cleaning process use? Only those created by Mother Nature – for a fast drying, thorough clean.
