Green Certified Cleaning

Green Carpet Cleaners in San Antonio

Every cleaning solution you use ends up back in our environment, whether it’s through being thrown out, released into the air, or carried out on your shoes. We wouldn’t put soaps, detergents, phosphates, or other harsh chemicals directly in our air, lakes, streams, or forests–so why add them to your carpets? At Alamo Chem-Dry, we believe in sustainability and have worked toward offering a Green solution to carpet cleaning for the past two decades.

Chem-Dry’s flagship cleaning solution, The Natural®, uses natural ingredients and is on the FDA’s G.R.A.S. list. However, our dedication to sustainability doesn’t stop there. Our cleaning processes use one-fifth the amount of water that steam cleaners use, helping to ensure a healthier, Greener home.
