HOME HEALTH STUDYOur research provides you with a cleaner, healthier home
Your Healthy Home Begins Here
Did you know that 1 in 5 Americans (roughly 60 million) are afflicted with allergies or asthma? Even if your furniture appears clean, it is still home to bacteria and contaminants that can affect your family, especially if they suffer from allergies or asthma. Carpets, rugs, and upholstered furniture are essentially giant air filters that trap allergens and bacteria deep in the fabric’s fibers. Just like an air filter, carpets can become full of these trapped contaminants over time, so they must be properly cleaned!
While cleaning and vacumming your home is essential, it is recommended that your carpets, rugs, and upholstery are professionally cleaned every 3-4 months. Our cleaning at Chem-Dry of Acadiana removes common household allergens and bacteria, which significantly improves the air quality in your home.
Chem-Dry’s Home Health Study
Our mission is to help all people in Lafayette, LA live in clean and healthy environments. In order to help us achieve this mission, we had to make sure that our cleaning processes provide the most effective results. So, we had an independent laboratory test our core cleaning methods against some of the most common and unhealthy contaminants found in homes — allergens and bacteria. We’re excited to share the results of our study with you!
Carpet and Upholstery Cleaning
The lab tested Chem-Dry’s Hot Carbonating Extraction (HCE) cleaning process that’s used to clean carpets and upholstery. The lab found that we remove an average of 98.1% of common household allergens from carpets and upholstery.* The lab also discovered that when sanitizer is added to the HCE process, we remove an average of 89% of airborne bacteria in the home and 82.3% of bacteria in carpets.*
Pet Urine Removal Treatment (P.U.R.T.)
At Chem-Dry of Acadiana, we use our revolutionary P.U.R.T to remove pet urine odors and stains in Lafayette. The lab conducted multiple tests of P.U.R.T. on common pet odor sources — dog and cat urine. The lab found that P.U.R.T. removes an average of 99.9% of pet urine odors from carpets.* When used with our HCE process and a sanitizer, P.U.R.T. removes an average of 99.2% of the bacteria from pet urine stains in carpets.*
Stone, Tile, and Grout Cleaning
Another service that the lab studied was our stone, tile, and grout cleaning process, which was tested on several tile surfaces in multiple homes. The lab concluded that when used with a sanitizer, our tile, stone, and grout cleaning process, removes an average of 98.6% of bacteria from these surfaces.*
*Based on studies conducted by independent laboratories of Chem-Dry’s HCE (Hot Carbonating Extraction) and P.U.R.T. (Pet Urine Removal Treatment) cleaning processes. Allergens tested were dog and cat dander and dust mite allergen. Pet odor results based on testing with the most common odor sources found in dog and cat urine. Pet urine bacteria results based on Chem-Dry’s HCE cleaning process and a sanitizer, combined with P.U.R.T. All bacteria results include use of sanitizer. Figures are an average across multiple tests.
Breathe Better and Live Healthier
Indoor air quality is a significant health concern in your home. The average home can harbor as much as 200,000 bacteria for every square inch of carpet. As this bacteria builds up, it gets released and circulates in the air your family breathes. Help your family breathe better and improve their health with a carpet, upholstery, rug, and tile cleaning from Chem-Dry of Acadiana! Our carpet cleaning in Lafayette, LA will not only improve the air quality in your home, but it will also make your carpets look and smell like new!
