Why North American Chem-Dry?

North American Chem-Dry is the superior choice of carpet cleaners in the San Francisco area because of our specialty Hot Carbonated Extraction (HCE) cleaning process. Chem-Dry cleaning experts have spent over 40 years perfecting the carpet cleaning methods that we use in order to ensure a drier, cleaner, healthier carpet and home. These are results that only the most advanced technology in the cleaning industry can provide. We offer a superior clean, and you can learn more about it in this video.

Drier Carpets, Quicker

One of the biggest advantages of the Chem-Dry cleaning process is that we use 80% less water than typical steam cleaners in San Francisco. When we clean your carpets, they’ll dry within hours, not days. This means you and your family don’t have to walk across soggy and sticky carpets, and you can get back to enjoying your clean carpets quickly. We know that no one likes to wait for wet carpets to dry, so we do everything we can to speed up that process for you.

A Clean You Can Trust

Our primary carpet cleaning solution is unique in San Francisco because it uses microscopic carbonated bubbles that penetrate deep into your carpet fibers. These hard-working carbonated bubbles lift up the dirt, stains, and other grime from deep within your carpets and bring it to the surface. After that, all of the dirt, stains, and dust are cleaned completely away with our powerful extraction equipment. This unique approach to carpet cleaning gives you the most thorough, deepest clean, instead of just cleaning the surface of your carpets. Plus, there is no dirt-attracting soap residue left behind, so carpets stay cleaner longer. Other cleaners in San Francisco often do a surface level job, leaving behind deeper stains that will eventually resurface and a sticky, dirt-attracting residue that causes your carpets to soil faster. That means you’ll have to get your carpets cleaned again. We believe our job is to make it so you don’t have to call us again soon.

Tested and Proven Carpet Cleaning San Francisco

We know that it can be an overwhelming choice to pick a carpet cleaner from all of the options in San Francisco. Just know that not all Bay Area carpet cleaning services are alike. So how unique is North American Chem-Dry, exactly? To find out how big of an impact a Chem-Dry cleaning can have on home health, we thought it would be helpful to measure how effective our cleaning process is in eliminating allergens and bacteria from your home. Chem-Dry commissioned a leading independent air quality laboratory to conduct a study using Chem-Dry’s Hot Carbonating Extraction (HCE) process in multiple homes. The lab found that a Chem-Dry carpet cleaner removes an average of 98.1% of common household allergens, such as dust mite allergens and pet dander, from the carpets and upholstery we clean. It also 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.*
