We All Love Our Pets

Dogs are impossible not to love. They are fluffy, they are cute and they are our best friends. Sometimes, pets can be just like people. Some like to rise and shine in the morning and some like to stay in bed. As you can see, our shop dog (The Whooshter), prefers to stay in bed. Some dogs let us know they have to go to the bathroom in the morning. They will do everything they can to get out attention and then, oops- a mistake happens on the carpet or rug. That tends to be such a bummer as homeowners or renters, we try very hard to keep our living space in tip top shape. Some tips for home owners with pets: 1. Dog doors (As long as it is safe for the pet to go into the backyard of course) 2. Potty Pads 3. Chem-Dry’s Professional Strength Spot Remover (In case of an accident) 4. More than one accident or a visible smell or stain? Call Air Fresh Chem-Dry Nature calls for pets just like humans, so give your pet a place to potty other than your carpets. If carpets become urinated on, visit our Pet Urine Removal Treatment Page to find out more information on how we can help you. You can also speak to one of our friendly customer service representatives and find out if P.U.R.T. will work for your carpet’s pet damaged condition.

Get Rid Of Germs With Air Fresh Chem-Dry Home Carpet Cleaning

How to Prevent and Rid Germs in your Home

Air Fresh Chem-Dry Shares Insight on How to Keep a Healthier Home this Season

March 6, 2013 // http://airfreshchemdry.com // Anaheim CA – As February and March typically marks the peak of cold and flu season, Air Fresh Chem-Dry, can help keep germs out and help eliminate the germs in your home if they currently exist. Below is a list of preventative measures that homeowners can take to prevent the flu from entering and spreading within the home.

The Environmental Protection Agency surveyed that Americans, on average, spend approximately 90 percent of their time inside, sharing most of their time and space with indoor air pollutants and germs that can bring on illness. The flu virus can stay alive for up to 48 hours and can be very easy to contract simply by touching a surface that was recently touched by someone with the flu. Consequently, neglecting your carpet and upholstered  can be detrimental to your health.

As carpet and upholstery act as filters that absorb the dirt, dust and allergens in the air, Chem-Dry’s hot carbonating extraction method uses millions of carbonation bubbles that penetrate deep into the carpet fibers and safely release dirt from the base of the carpet so they can be easily extracted. Because carpets trap and hold dirt and germs, the Environmental Protection Agency recommends that carpets be cleaned every three months. That is where we come in. Air Fresh Chem-Dry uses Hot Carbonated Extraction. This process sucks out dirt, grime and germs from carpeting, fabric furniture and much more. In addition to just a cleaning, sanitizing treatments and dust mite anti allergen treatments are available. Even mattresses and drapes can be treated.

In addition to vacuuming, there are several other measures that can be taken to safeguard your health.Beyond getting a flu shot and washing your hands, among other common suggestions, below are additional tips that can help people avoid catching and spreading the flu within their homes.

1. How to properly disinfect.

In order to allow disinfectants to do their job, homeowners must first take measure to remove the dirt and grime that are too often left to linger. Since no disinfectant is 100 percent effective, any remaining dirt can cause germs to regenerate after disinfecting is complete. Therefore, make sure to choose an appropriate cleaning formula that is designed to bond with the kind of dirt you’re dealing with. While cleaning, make sure your cleaning rag has the absorbency power to effectively remove the dirt, rather than just spread it around.

2. Beyond disinfecting.

Frequent vacuuming can make a major difference. According to the EPA, a dirty carpet can retain indoor air pollutants that can lead to the production of toxic airborne gases, which often become trapped within carpets. These toxic gases can be released through everyday activities, such as simply walking across the floor. Have your carpets cleaned and sanitized professionally and then stick to a regimented vacuuming schedule. Most people wait until they see visible debris on the carpet before they feel the need to vacuum; however, it’s best to vacuum at regular and frequent intervals to keep your home healthy.

3. The dangers of concealed mold.

In addition to the visible dirt that comes from food crumbs, dirty shoes, and neglect, germs can also enter your home through moisture, which can later develop into mold. Unfortunately, mold removal is not as easy a task as eliminating loose crumbs because mold is usually undetectable to the naked eye and can sink deep into the carpet fibers where it can fester and cause health problems. According to the CDC, indoor mold can produce a wide range of side effects, from mild symptoms (nasal stuffiness, eye irritation, wheezing, skin irritation) to severe ones (upper respiratory illness, asthma attacks, allergic reactions, fever). Therefore, during the winter months, it is recommended that homeowners request that people entering the home remove their shoes at the door and manually dry their carpets whenever moisture is tracked into the house.

4. Don’t forget about upholstery.

With Americans spending 90 percent of their time indoors, much of that time is spent relaxing on upholstered furniture. Therefore, when a higher level of cleaning is required to prevent the spread of germs during and post flu season, don’t forget to thoroughly clean your couches and recliners as they tend to consume a large amount of the very germs that turn our relaxation time into misery. First and foremost, vacuum the surface of your couch to remove loose dirt and hair. Then, make sure to use the best cleaning solution for your furniture; this depends on (1) the type of fabric, (2) the dye stability, (3) the age, and (4) the soil level. While it is primarily recommended to hire a professional to choose the best cleaning solution and method for each piece of furniture and situation, homeowners can “spot clean” on their own in between cleanings. When doing so, test for colorfastness in an inconspicuous area and allow it to dry completely as bleeding occurs during the last few moments of drying. Then, clean the area with a mild detergent, preferably with a neutral pH; most dish soaps work well when diluted 10 parts water to 1 part soap. Make sure to blot, not rub, and use a clean towel. Repeat with a damp towel that has no detergent. It is safest to choose a cleaning formula that is non-toxic; some solutions contain carcinogens like nitrilotriacetic acid, which should be avoided when possible. Green-certified and natural solutions, like Chem-Dry’s Stain Extinguisher, are a good choice. While cleaning, be careful not to use too much water as an overabundance can leave water stains and cause the fabric to shrink.

Call the professionals at Air Fresh Chem-Dry today. Let us do the hard work at removing pollutants, allergens, germs, dust mites, dirt, soil, spots and spills from your carpet, rugs and furniture items.

Chem-Dry Carpet Cleaning: Trends to Watch in 2013

Riverside CA- The cleaning industry has continued to consolidate in 2013 and now a broader array of surfaces are being cleaned with better cleansing technologies. Chem-Dry continues to develop environmentally safe carpet cleaning and upholstery cleaning solutions.

Chem-Dry has the largest share of the United States carpet cleaning market and has solid footing in trends in which Chem-Dry is expected to dominate in 2013.

  • Green carpet cleaning. Every year, as research details the risk of allergens to respiratory health, consumers are paying more attention to environmentally friendly cleaning standards. Chem-Dry’s primary cleaning solution, The Natural®, is green-certified, contains no phosphates or detergents and is safe and non-toxic for kids and pets. The company’s proprietary hot carbonating extraction process also uses 80% less water than steam cleaning, which allows the carpet to dry in hours instead of days. Quick drying means lower risk of mold and mildew growth, a common issue with steam cleaning.
  • Innovation. Market demand coupled with rising fuel and maintenance costs have driven innovation. Chem-Dry recently launched a new portable system, the XTS, with all the cleaning power of its larger systems but in a more compact footprint, with lower operational and maintenance costs and at roughly half the upfront cost.
  • Diversification. Builders are installing more varied surfaces in homes and offices, including hardwoods, tile and stone. “The successful cleaning companies in the coming years will be those that can position themselves to service this broad market,” Tarantin said. Chem-Dry offers tile, stone and grout cleaning in addition to stain removal and drapery and upholstery cleaning services.

Air Fresh Chem-Dry Carpet Cleaning Reviews

Riverside, Orange County, Los Angeles & San Bernardino’s #1 Carpet Cleaners!

At Air Fresh Chem-Dry, we work hard to earn your loyal repeat business. There are hundreds of carpet and upholstery cleaning companies, but our goal is once you have chosen Air Fresh Chem-Dry, we are the only professional carpet & upholstery cleaners you will call.. forever.. Here are some reviews recently posted on Yelp.

Andy in Tustin CA says “Mike arrived promptly after a call from the home office and was knowledgeable and explained all the options to me and explained what he was doing and was very professional. The carpets and rug look great and I would recommend them and use them again.”

C.N. in Irvine CA says “Bought the Groupon cleaning to have 3 areas cleaned. Called to schedule and spoke with
Melissa who was very nice. They called to confirm appt the day before and called prior to sending the technician out on the day of, just as promised. Technician was John who showed up on time and was also very friendly and polite. He did the walk through to determine the type of cleaning options.  He was not overly pushy or aggressive as I read in some of the other reviews. He was not rude in any way when I told him that I just wanted to do the basic paid service without any add-ons either and got started promptly. He didn’t rush to finish hastily just because it was the basic service did a very nice job and I would certainly recommend.”

Sue in Tustin CA says “purchased a Groupon.  When John, the technician arrived, I learned it wasn’t for a truck mount cleaning, BUT, he was very informative, giving me options, and I’ll say our carpet was in really bad shape.  My husband used to clean carpets part time, so John took the time to speak with him by phone, he answered his questions, and once the addtl $ were approved by us, he took his time.  I’d had back surgery, and he was great about moving items that we hadn’t moved out of the way.  They have a 30 day guarantee on spots showing back up, which I think is fair.  I would recommend then, but if you’re on a budget, make sure you discuss the footage, rooms, price, add-ons, up front.
Also…sometimes when I’ve used Groupons the staff at the places are rude, because they get overwhelmed.  This company was very nice, scheduled according to my needs, sent me a follow up email and welcome, and they called to remind us the day prior, and 45 minutes before the tech arrived (we had a 2 hour window)…”

Liliana D. in Newport Beach says “Jon did a amazing job! He came right on time, very knowledgeable and very polite!!!! Would def recommend him to all my friends!!”

Chris in Irvine says “Making appointment was easy…live person…not voicemail.  Appointment was reconfirmed.  Jon arrived on time just as the call from the office indicated.  He was professional and explained all the options clearly.  Job done promptly.  Satisfied and definitely will consider using them again.”

Mrs. L in Orange says “I purchased a Groupon deal for (3) room cleaning.   I also paid for some add-on features and had my couch cleaned, just be informative with pricing and you wouldn’t get ripped off.  The guys were friendly, professional, and informative.  So far happy with the results.  Time will tell though how well those add-on features hold-up though.”

Roy in Riverside CA says “Mike was very knowledgeable and did a good job, I recommend Air Fresh Chem Dry.”

Melanie in Huntington Beach says “I purchased the Groupon for the 3 room carpet cleaning.  Of course when Darnell arrived he tried to upsell me with pre and post treatments sprays for all the rooms.  That being said, he was very informative and worked with my budget to see what was truly necessary.  One of the room’s carpets was pretty filthy, so I agreed to pay for the pre-treatment for that room only.  Once he was done, all the stains were gone, and I’m pretty happy with how the carpets turned out.”

Mitch in Chino CA says “Our carpets haven’t looked this good since we had them installed! RJ really knows his stuff and gave us great information and options. He and Anthony were thorough, checking with us through the process and explaining every step of the way. Melissa and Kristin provided great customer service and kept us posted on scheduling. We are completely satisfied and will definitely be calling on them for our next cleaning.”

Alan in San Bernardino CA says “Timely courteous service, and a job well done. Provided information about other products but no pressure to upgrade.  Will use again.”

Kristine in Chino CA says “Fast, friendly and professional! On the spot on time so no waiting. RJ and Anthony were very friendly and knowledgeable. I would totally recommend!”

Heather in San Bernardino CA says “This company has gone above and beyond my expectations.  When I was first told they would be here between 10am and 2pm the only thing I could think was, “great, I’m going to be stuck in the house for hours on end waiting for these people.”  But at 10 on the dot I received a phone call saying the technician was on his way.  Amazing.  The technician was very friendly and extremely thorough.  My carpets look great and I will be using this company again!”

Jennifer in Corona CA says “Love Air Fresh Chem-Dry!!  They are the Best!!  I use them all the time for my home and my rental.  Wouldn’t use anyone else.  Thanks RJ  and Nick for coming out today and making my carpets fresh and pretty.”

Scott in Aliso Viejo CA says “I had an overall positive experience with Air Fresh ChemDry and the individual (Mike)who cleaned my carpets. Mike was polite and sincre about doing a good job. The carpets turned out great!

Only one nit; If you are using one of their coupons, just know that they will charge you separetley for any stairwell carpet work.”

Jonee in Santa Ana CA says “The Chem Dry guy “Shane” was very helpful. The upholstery bench that he cleaned
looked fantastic and also the carpets!  I would reconmend them and use their
service again!”
