Chem-Dry is Your Trusted Partner in Removing Allergens and Bacteria From Your Home
Carpets as well as area rugs and upholstered furniture act as giant filters, trapping allergens and bacteria and keeping them out of the air we breathe. But, just like an air filter, carpets become full over time and must be properly cleaned to remain most effective at trapping particulates as they settle from the air.
The number of people with allergies and intolerance’s in Ireland is increasing. 470,000 people in Ireland have asthma and Ireland has the fourth highest prevalence of asthma in the world according to the Asthma Association of Ireland. 1 in every 10 adults and 1 in every 5 children suffer from asthma. 25% of the Irish population now suffers from some form of allergy and at least 10% of children and young adults have more than one allergic disorder.

Tested and Proven Superior Results
Removing Allergens from Your Home
All of us, and particularly those who suffer from allergies and disorders like asthma, are greatly impacted by indoor air quality and the amount of allergens and bacteria trapped in our homes that can trigger an attack. Considering that and the fact that we spend an average of 90% of our time indoors, professional carpet cleaning serves an important function in the health of your home and your family.
However, not all carpet cleaning services are alike. To find out how big 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 unhealthy and unwanted elements from your home. So we 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 Chem-Dry removes an average of 98.1% of common household allergens from the carpets and upholstery we clean. The common allergens we tested include cat and dog dander and dust mite allergen.
Removing Bacteria, Improving Indoor Air Quality
Indoor air quality is also a significant home health concern because the average home harbors about 200,000 bacteria for every square inch of carpet. As the bacteria builds up, the bacteria lurking in your carpets gets stirred up and circulates in the air your family is breathing unless you clean it. A Chem-Dry carpet cleaning is not only effective at removing the bacteria from the carpets we clean, but it also improves the air quality in your home. The same leading independent air quality laboratory found that, when adding sanitiser 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.
