Your Partner in Removing Allergens and Bacteria From Your Home
Southside Chem-Dry removes allergens and bacteria during carpet cleaning

Carpets, as well as area rugs and upholstered furniture, act as giant filters, trapping allergens and bacteria and keeping them out of the air we breathe. But in order to remain effective when it comes to trapping air particles, just like an air filter, carpets need to be cleaned and have the allergen and bacteria removed. This is especially important for the 1 in 5 Americans (roughly 60 million) living with allergies or asthma. You can ensure healthier indoor air in your home by keeping your carpets clean and in good condition through regular vacuuming and having your carpets, rugs and upholstery professionally cleaned every 3 – 4 months to rid your home of common allergens and bacteria.

Removing Allergens from Your Home

Southside Chem-Dry removes allergens from carpets and upholstery. All of us, and particularly those who suffer from allergies and disorders like asthma, are greatly impacted by indoor air quality and the amount of allergens and bacteria trapped in our homes that can trigger an attack. Considering that and the fact that we spend an average of 90% of our time indoors, professional carpet cleaning serves an important function in the health of your home and your family.

However, not all of Virginia Beach’s carpet cleaning services are alike. To see just how effective our cleaning processes are at impacting home health in a positive way, we decided to measure our abilities in eliminating these unhealthy and unwanted elements from your home via our Hot Carbonating Extraction method. So Chem-Dry commissioned a leading independent air quality laboratory to conduct a study using our Hot Carbonating Extraction (HCE) process in multiple homes. The lab found that Chem-Dry removes an average of 98.1% of common household allergens from the carpets and upholstery we clean. The common allergens we tested include cat and dog dander and dust mite allergen.

Indoor air quality is also a significant home health concern because the average home harbors about 200,000 bacteria for every square inch of carpet. As the bacteria builds up, the bacteria lurking in your carpets gets stirred up and circulates in the air your family is breathing unless you clean it. A Southside Chem-Dry carpet cleaning is not only effective at removing the bacteria from the carpets we clean, but it also greatly improves the air quality in your home. The same leading independent air quality laboratory found that, when adding sanitizer to our HCE carpet cleaning process, we removed an average of 89% of the bacteria in the air and 82.3% of the bacteria from carpets.
