Our primary carpet cleaning solution is carbonated and as it penetrates deep into your carpet’s fibers, it lifts the dirt from deep within your carpets so it can be whisked away with our powerful extraction equipment giving you the most thorough clean. And there is no dirt-attracting residue left behind, so carpets stay cleaner longer.

Our Hot Carbonating Extraction cleaning services use a low-water method which means there is less risk of mold and mildew growth under your carpet that can result from the excessive water used by most steam carpet cleaners. We use a powerful cleaning solution, called The Natural®, that does not contain any harsh soaps or chemicals and is completely safe and non-toxic for your family and pets.

Tested and Proven

Are you concerned about the accumulation of allergens at home, particularly if a family member suffers from asthma or allergies? Alternatively, do you have young children or pets that enjoy frolicking on the carpet, causing concerns over cleanliness? Carpets act as vast filters, fostering the collection and retention of dirt, dust, and allergens. However, just like air filters, carpets have a limit and fill up over time. For carpets to remain effective in trapping atmospheric particulates, periodic cleaning is necessary to avoid saturation. Academy Chem-Dry carpet cleaning service in Columbia, MD has been tested and proven by a leading independent laboratory to effectively remove an average of 98.1% of common non-living household allergens from the carpets and upholstery we clean.

Fight Stains with Carpet Protectant Package

Your carpets get a lot of use, dirt and spills are inevitable. Over time, the factory-applied stain resistant becomes less effective and fades away leaving your carpets susceptible to staining. Chem-Dry Protectant is a heavy duty compliment to our carpet cleaner that refreshes the performance of stain resistant carpets, creating a barrier around the carpet fibers to resist soiling and staining by allowing spills to be removed before staining can occur.

  • PowerGuard Protectant® – This revolutionary carpet stain protectant not only gives a boost to your carpet’s stain-resisting powers, but works well with solution-dyed carpets.
  • Repel Protectant – Repel Protectant works with all kinds of carpets by forming a protective shield around each carpet fiber. This liquid-repelling carpet solution doesn’t give stains the chance to set in. It repels most stains, allowing a window of opportunity for you to soak up the spill on your own before it adheres to the carpet fiber.
  • Wool Protectant – Chem-Dry’s Wool Protectant is a water-based solution specifically designed to enhance the stain resistant qualities of wool carpets and rugs. It defends against most liquid spills to stop stains in their tracks.

With sound reason, Chem-Dry has blossomed into a reputable brand in the sphere of carpet cleaning, serving thousands of households worldwide and cleansing over 10,000 homes daily. Annually, Chem-Dry cleans more than 1 billion square feet of carpet, owing to the unique Hot Carbonating Extraction (HCE) cleaning technique used by our cleaners. This method achieves a thorough and long-lasting cleaning effect, coupled with a green-certified solution that poses no danger to pets or children. Therefore, you obtain a cleaning experience that is safe to your little ones, pets, and environment, encompassing a healthier living space.

The power of carbonation

Academy Chem-Dry utilizes the natural cleaning power of carbonation to release and lift dirt and grime from deep within your carpets so they can be whisked away with our powerful extraction equipment for a clean that lasts.

Similar to the way club soda removes stains from a shirt, we’ve evolved and adapted the use of carbonation into a superior carpet and upholstery cleaning process. Academy Chem-Dry carpet cleaning in Columbia, MD uses the power of carbonating solutions to lift the dirt, dust, and other allergens to the surface where they can be easily removed without using excessive amounts of water other methods like steam cleaning use.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the best carpet cleaner to buy?

For maintenance in between professional cleanings, there are a number of Chem-Dry products available online, such as the Stain Extinguisher and Carpet Deodorizers, that will help you to tackle dirt, spills and odors. You can also purchase professional strength cleaners from your local Chem-Dry professional.

What is the best homemade carpet cleaning solution?

There is no substitute for professional-grade cleaning, but regular maintenance can help keep the dirt away. Chem-Dry uses many products that are all-natural, and sometimes the best solution in between professional cleanings is regular vacuuming with a HEPA filter to keep those airborne allergens at bay.

How do you clean my car's upholstery and carpet?

To supplement regular vacuuming, you might need to remove some stubborn dirt or stains from the upholstery and carpet in your car. Oil can get particularly deep and difficult to remove, so you might want to try a Grease and Oil Stain Extinguisher.
