The Carbonated Secret Revealed


We clean your furniture with millions of carbonated bubbles that lift dirt and stains to the surface of your upholstery’s fabric where it is then easily removed by our powerful extraction equipment. Our carbonated solutions penetrate deep into your upholstery, literally exploding dust and dirt. After this, we use hot water extraction to whisk away dirt particles and ensure a thorough cleaning. This process is non-toxic and completely safe to use around children and pets.




Tested & Proven to Remove Allergens


We were curious to know just how effective our Hot Carbonating Extraction (HCE) cleaning process was, and we’re sure our customers were as well. That’s why we called up a leading independent laboratory to come and test it out. The lab concluded that Chem-Dry’s HCE process removes an average of 98.1% of common household allergens from upholstery. The allergens tested were dog and cat dander and dust mite allergen.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it take for furniture to dry?

In most cases, the furniture dries within just a couple of hours, but in some cases it may take overnight to fully dry depending on the upholstery’s fabric and how deeply it was cleaned – i.e. heavily stained areas will take longer to dry.

Do you offer protectant or stain guard for upholstery?

Yes, after the upholstery cleaning, you can have the furniture stain guarded with Chem-Dry’s Protectant.

How does Chem-Dry clean upholstery?

We use our proprietary hot carbonating extraction cleaning method, featuring our core cleaner The Natural®. The carbonated cleaning bubbles release dirt, soil, airborne allergens and spots from the upholstery fibers. Then, we use our extraction equipment to remove the cleaning solution, dirt, soil and airborne contaminants from your furniture, leaving it with a deeper, healthier clean than other alternatives.

How often do upholstery manufacturers recommend that you clean your furniture?

Manufacturers recommend professional upholstery cleanings every 24-48 months. As with carpets, the presence of kids, pets, allergies and asthma in the home necessitates more frequent cleanings to improve air quality and the overall healthiness of the home. If furniture is stained, saturated or has unwanted odor then it is ready for a cleaning.

Why should I have my upholstered furniture professionally cleaned?

In homes that have carpet, up to 80% of the dust and dirt brought into the home can end up in your furniture and upholstered fabrics. Without professional cleaning, this dust and dirt will remain in your carpets and furniture and can become very unhealthy.
