About Chem-Dry City Bowl Carpet Cleaners

Our new Power Head cleaning machines are changing the way we clean carpets. we are the leaders in carpet cleaning technology – Carpet Cleaners in the City Bowl

The average steam cleaner only move the extraction wand over the carpets an average of 40 times a minuet and eventually slows with fatigue. The Power-Head amplified extraction unit on the other hand rotates at a constant 650 revolutions per minute.

With the Chem-Dry process millions of carbonated bubbles penetrate deep into the carpets fibers and lift particles up to the surface where the Power-Head removers them through its unique rotating Power-Head vacuuming action.

Carpets are dry within 1 to 2 hours and not days. Steam cleaning soaks more than it cleans.

A Deeper Clean for a Healthier HomeDid you know your carpets help filter the air inside your home? Carpet fibers trap dirt and allergens, which keeps them from circulating in the air you breathe.

But without regular deep cleaning, dirty carpets will become full and unable to trap additional dirt and grime.

That’s where Chem-Dry comes in! With our Hot Carbonating Extraction (HCE) process, we can deep clean your carpets. This improves indoor air quality and delivers a healthier home.

Our innovative cleaning process uses about 80% less water than traditional steam cleaning. That means faster drying times and less risk of mold or mildew growth due to wet carpets.

Unlike other cleaners, Chem-Dry doesn’t rely on harsh chemicals or soapy detergents. Instead, we use a Chem-Dry Green Certified solution called The Natural®. This exclusive product is at the heart of our carpet and upholstery cleaning services.

Instead of using detergents, The Natural uses carbonation to clean carpet fibers. The solution releases millions of tiny carbonated bubbles that reach deep into your carpets. These bubbles loosen dirt, grit, and grime and lift them to the surface. At that point, our PowerHead® extraction equipment whisks the dirt out of your carpets.

The solution is based on ingredients copied from Mother Nature. That makes The Natural® a perfect choice for a healthier home.

Your home is filled with odors that get trapped in the fibers of your carpet. From cooking to pets and kids, some of these stubborn odors can linger even after a professional cleaning. Our carpet cleaning company has the solution to lingering smells. With our deodorizer, we can knock out even the toughest of odors, leaving your home smelling clean and fresh. Even odors from pet accidents are no match for Chem-Dry! Our revolutionary Pet Urine Removal Treatment (P.U.R.T.®) is perfect for pet urine stains. In fact, the P.U.R.T. process is proven to remove 99.9% of pet urine odors from carpets.
What makes Chem-Dry different from other carpet cleaners?

Chem-Dry uses a unique cleaning process called Hot Carbonating Extraction.

This process uses the natural cleaning power of carbonation to remove soil and stains. (Think of how club soda can be used to get stains out of clothes!)

Hot Carbonating Extraction not only delivers a deeper and healthier clean — it also uses roughly 80% less water than traditional steam cleaning and hot water extraction systems.

Do I need to vacuum my carpets before cleaning?
Unless otherwise asked, homeowners do not need to vacuum their carpets before a Chem-Dry cleaning. Before we start the Hot Carbonating Extraction process, we will vacuum the entire carpet with a commercial, HEPA-filter vacuum cleaner.
How long will it take for my carpets to dry?
After a Chem-Dry cleaning, it takes only 1 to 2 hours for carpets to dry. This is a fraction of the time you can expect with steam cleaning, in which dry times can last 24 hours or more! Our Hot Carbonating Extraction process uses roughly 80% less water, which reduces the dry time. As a result, it also reduces the risk of mold or mildew growing while your carpets dry.
How long will it take to clean my carpets?
The amount of time needed for a Chem-Dry floor cleaning can depend on the number of rooms to clean, the size of each room, and the level of soiling in the carpets. Smaller jobs may take 1 to 2 hours. Larger jobs may take the better part of a morning or afternoon. To get a more accurate estimate, contact your nearest Chem-Dry location!
How often should i clean my carpets?
Chem-Dry recommends a professional cleaning every 6 to 12 months for most carpets. Regular cleaning will prevent staining, preserve your carpet’s appearance, and remove destructive dirt and grime. At the same time, it can help improve indoor air quality by removing non-living allergens from the fibers.

Approved by the Carpet & Rug Institute


Our unique cleaning process is not only trusted by thousands of homeowners — it also bears the Carpet & Rug Institute’s Seal of Approval! The Seal of Approval is an independent program that grades carpet cleaning products and systems. It measures factors like how well cleaning tools and products remove soil from carpets, how long it takes for carpets to resoil after cleaning, and whether the system causes damage or discoloring to carpet fibers.
