Extends Carpet Life

When you call the professionals at City Wide Chem-Dry, you can rest assured your carpets have thoroughly been cleaned. With such detailed training and equipment, you can be confident our technique won’t harm or bring about any difficulties for your rugs. With routine cleaning appointments, your house will always look its best.

Health Benefits

Dust particles, germs, and allergens get caught within the carpet fibers. All of these particles might cause a range of health problems unless you get them taken out. Once these contaminants build up with time, they are only able to be taken out by professionals using products that can sanitize your house.


Scents get trapped within the carpeting of your home. Properties with domestic animals deal with the battle of extra frustrating smells, such as urine and feces. City Wide Chem-Dry features a product called PURT (Pet Urine Removal Treatment) that is designed to get rid of these persistent smells.


Vacuuming and spot cleaning are very important pieces of carpet care, but you aren't able to count on this alone. Professional carpet cleaning makes it possible to keep your home looking its finest.


Professional carpet cleaning could help avoid the progression of serious difficulties such as dust mites and mold. City Wide Chem-Dry uses low levels of water that won’t lead to mold growth soon after the cleaning appointment like several steam cleaners threaten.

spot removal tips stain removal tips.jpg

Spots and stains are bound to happen, however that doesn’t need to mean you'll be stuck with them for life. We've got a handful of tips to help you maintain your upholstery and carpets by using a couple of of our favorite Chem-Dry items that you can order from City Wide Chem-Dry. Make sure that you respond quickly! The more the stain sets, the tougher it can be to have a quick and easy stain removal experience.


Make sure you initially understand if the challenging spot is a water based stain or an oil based stain so you figure out what type of product to use for cleaning the stain from your household. Get rid of as much of the excess stain as possible, if at all possible. It is recommended to blot, scrape, or brush anything that will come off, but whatever way you approach it, steer clear of rubbing it in at all costs! Test the fabric or carpeting with either Chem-Dry Professional Strength Spot Remover or Chem-Dry Grease & Oil Remover on a smaller sized, hidden area to make certain the product won’t lead to any damage. To help keep the blemish from spreading, work from the outside in.


If these attempts don’t deliver the results, call the experts at City Wide Chem-Dry. Be sure to check out Protectant, a solution that will help you maintain your carpets or upholstery in between professional cleanings. For big spills, ink stains, and spots from items that can chemically harm carpet fibers, please call us to make sure your home remains in the finest condition possible.

Chem-Dry vs. Steam Cleaning

Multiple customers brand new to Chem-Dry don’t recognize our technique is substantially different than what steam cleaners use. There are numerous aspects that exhibit the Chem-Dry difference. With our outstanding technique, we do more than dump gallons of soapy water and unpleasant chemicals in your home. The proprietary Hot Carbonating Extraction method that we work with offers you a deeper clean, a quicker drying time, and a safer carpet cleaning than what you could find with traditional steam cleaning companies.






As a result of unwanted amount of moisture and cleaning agents that typical steam cleaners use, you may be stuck with wet carpets for 1-2 days. This creates a breeding ground for bacteria, mold, and mildew. Not only that, but the stiff or gluey residue left behind will pull in dust and permit your carpets to rapidly retreat to their dirty condition.




We use a large number of effervescent bubbles to unlock dust deep within the carpet’s fibers and bring them to the surface so our equipment can extract them. We use about 1/5th of the moisture that most steam cleaners use on account of the success of our approach.




Our low-moisture process doesn’t use the excessive amounts of water to soak through to the carpet backing and establish a breeding ground for bacteria, mold, and mildew. Similar risks that are included in steam cleaning won’t lead to a threat when you use City Wide Chem-Dry. We can deliver a more hassle-free and healthier cleaning choice. Your carpets can not only stay cleaner longer, but dry faster so you can resume your daily life quickly. The Chem-Dry way is unparalleled.

Are You on the Search for Pet Urine and Odor Removal?

Family dogs and cats are a vital and loved component of many households. Even well-trained animals could have accidents and may come back to the same general place to urinate regularly. Much more than a basic cleaning solution could very well be the necessity to dispose of the urine and odors. Here at City Wide Chem-Dry, our company offers a product named PURT (Pet Urine Removal Treatment) that, on contact, instantly will start breaking down the urine crystals.

How PURT Works:

1. First, our well trained technician determines the source and severity of the aroma. Usually we find the urine using a particular device, for example a black light. The carpeting will then be rinsed with very hot water and extracted to filter out most of the urine crystals.

2. The carpet would be pulled back around the trouble spots to show the magnitude of the damage, in the worst circumstance.

3. The pad could be taken off and changed if necessary.

4. An odor blocking shellac ought to be applied to the subfloor if identified necessary.

5. PURT is then applied heavily enough to soak in each of the urine affected areas.

6. The ingredients in PURT will interact with the urine and disintegrate the odor on the molecular level during the next 24-36 hours.

One of the benefits about this technique is how harmless it is! Your home will smell fresh and clean again plus your kids and pets won't be in harm’s way. You can learn more about PURT here.

Visit your bathrooms, laundry rooms, and kitchen areas to make certain your home doesn’t have fungal development and use non-toxic cleaning equipment to clear out what may be there.

Have a Dust-Free Environment

Appropriately dusting every section of your home - like filters, ducts, and vents - you decrease your home’s exposure to pollens and various other airborne elements. Regular vacuuming decreases the amount of dust that settles onto your carpet. It is wise to vacuum at the very least 1-3 times each week.

Greet spring with a fresh and clean, happy home!

As time passes, the borders of the carpet following the wall become discolored. These areas are classified as filtration lines which are particularly prominent on light-colored carpet.

How did I get filtration lines?

It might seem it is the incapacity to be capable of perfectly vacuum the corners, but that is only one part of the issue. Air flow is allowed within the very small gaps between the panels and this is impossible to prevent even with the best built houses. A shift in the temperature or pressure differences in the home drives air under walls and doors. Any waste that the air is possibly carrying gets tangled inside the carpet fibers while it goes through the holes between the boards, the carpeting serving as a filter. Eventually, these tiny contaminants build up, soiling and darkening your carpeting.

How do I get rid of filtration lines?

Without the the proper gear, it is hard to rid your residence of filtration lines. Deep cleaning, agitation, and the appropriate cleaning solution are the vital components to clear out the darkened edges. As professionals, at City Wide Chem-Dry our company is well trained to clear out your filtration line troubles. After breaking down the oil, dirt, and grime contaminants that are stuck in the carpet fibers, our strong, yet gentle, equipment will take out the debris for good. Your home should stay cleaner for a longer time because we avoid solutions which can leave behind any dirt attracting residue.

Your home or business can benefit by calling on the professionals at City Wide Chem-Dry to skillfully clean the carpets. You don't need to wait any longer, call or click for significantly cleaner carpets!
