Remove Allergens & Bacteria From Your Home!

Chem-Dry Allergen ResultsCarpets, rugs, upholstered furniture – what do they have in common? Well, they all trap allergens and bacteria from the air in your home. This is good when they keep them out of the air we breathe. But, if they’re not cleaned, they become much less effective traps and actually end up making the air around us worse.

Knowing this is especially important for the 1 in 5 Americans (roughly 60 million) living with allergies or asthma! Make sure you have healthier indoors by cleaning your carpets regularly. In fact, you should have your carpets, rugs, and upholstery cleaned by a professional every 3-4 months to promote the elimination of common allergens and bacteria in your home.

The Impact of Chem-Dry on Home Health

Old Dominion Chem-Dry removes allergens from carpets and upholstery. Everyone, and particularly those who suffer from allergies and disorders like asthma, are greatly impacted by indoor air quality. The sheer amount of allergens and bacteria trapped in our homes can trigger an attack. Consider this: we spend an average of 90% of our time indoors!

Chem-Dry is not like other Yorktown, Virginia carpet cleaners. We seek to innovate and invest in tools that will improve our service and then PROVE our value. So Chem-Dry commissioned a leading independent air quality laboratory to conduct a study using our 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. You can read more about the study here.

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. Not only does our cleaning process remove allergen and bacteria in your carpets, but it improves the quality of the air that your family is breathing. The same leading independent air quality laboratory 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.


At Chem-Dry, we want you to breathe easier about the healthfulness of your home and your family. Whether you suffer from allergies or asthma or you just want to provide the healthiest home for your family, a Chem-Dry carpet cleaning can help you remove the allergens and bacteria hiding in your home and improve your indoor air quality.
