The Top 5 Scariest Things Hiding in Your Carpet

Think about this: every day, you walk on your carpet, your pets play on it and your kids crawl on it. Just how safe do you think that is? Just in time for Halloween – or, just after Halloween – we’ve made a list of the 5 scariest things hiding in your carpet that a vacuum cleaner can’t get rid of.

5. Allergens. If you’re like over half of the population in the United States, you suffer from allergies – and if you don’t, chances are that someone in your family does. Few people know that carpet virtually acts as an allergen storage unit, allowing them to be active in your home all year round and make you continually miserable.

4. Chemicals. You can’t even imagine how many harmful substances are lodged in your carpet fibers – and it doesn’t just happen over time. New carpets typically house formaldehyde, toluene, styrene, acetone and benzene, some of which are even considered to cause cancer by the EPA. Even the new carpet smell that everyone loves is caused by 4-PC, a chemical that is known to cause eye and respiratory problems.

3. Mold. Even though steam cleaning can potentially help your carpet in some ways, mold prevention is not one of them. During the steam cleaning process, gallons of water are dumped on to your carpet, pushing dirt and grime deep down into your padding and creating a breeding ground for mold and bacteria underneath your carpet.

2. Bacteria. If you can believe it, the bottom of your shoes carry more bacteria than a toilet seat. Do you wear your shoes when you’re walking on your carpet? If so, you’re tracking millions of kinds of bacteria, harmful or not, onto your carpet, not to mention what your kids and pets bring into the house on a daily basis. Yikes.

1. Dust Mites. And you thought spiders were scary! Just look at that thing. There’s no wonder this tops our list of the scariest things living in your carpet. These things are what scientists call cosmopolitan pyroglyphidae, and they live in your carpet and survive on flakes of your skin. Aside from being incredibly creepy, they are a common cause of allergic and asthma symptoms throughout the world and can induce wheezing. Disgusting, huh?

Even though those are pretty scary things to have living in your home, there’s no reason to worry. Big Sky Chem-Dry in Hamilton uses an all-natural process that is safe for your home and that reduces the risk of mold and bacteria, in addition to the fastest dry times on the market. Give us a call and let us help you get rid of what’s been hiding in your carpet.

Chem-Dry's innovative solutions offer an unparalleled cleaning experience. We offer fast and efficient cleaning solutions that will not inconvenience your daily life. The Chem-Dry solution rips the dirt from your carpet and dries in hours. Our pioneered method utilizes the power of carbonation to bring life back to your carpets.

Since carbonation has natural “lifting” qualities, it always rises to the top. Anyone who has ever poured a carbonated drink into a glass has seen this principle in action, as the bubbles always rise to the top. Dirt and grime are released from the fibers of your carpet using this same principle which is implemented by Chem-Dry. An explosive reaction is created by the carbonation that makes this possible. Our equipment will safely gather the unwanted particles once they are lifted to the surface. Using hot water, the particles are pulled away. Dirt and grime are entirely removed with our incredible solutions. This allows you to obtain the most satisfying and thorough clean on the market.

Rather than carbonated cleaning, steam cleaners use high pressure and loads of soapy water on your carpets. Rather than actually extracting the mess this pushes it deeper down, hiding the dirt and creating a breeding ground for mold and bacteria. Your carpets also take longer to dry with steam cleaning – typically between 1-2 days – because of the excess of water used. But because Chem-Dry uses minimal water, your carpets will be left clean and dry within 1-2 hours. You're carpets will be dry 24 times faster! Our competitors can't offer you the same convenience. Who wouldn't want to experience the ease and perfection that Chem-Dry can offer.

Thankfully we offer our amazing services at an affordable price so any budget can benefit. Get in touch with the professionals who will prove your satisfaction is vital!

Easy Spot Removal Tips

Even though having your carpets professionally cleaned is quick and helpful, it's also helpful to know when to call the cleaners. Most stains and spots can come out with a couple of home remedy solutions. We want to let you in on some of the secrets that the other guys wouldn't want to tell you.

To apply the first remedy, you only need a white towel and some warm water. Just wet the stain and blot your carpet with the cloth. As you are blotting, make sure not to aggressively scrub the spot because this may cause fraying or spread the stain around. Continuing to blot and dab will be most effective. It pulls the stain from the carpet to your rag. As the spot transfers to your towel, the cloth will start to darken. Check your towel for this transfer often. If there is no darkening on your towel, you'll want to stop blotting.

Club soda is the next step if you weren't able to get any transfer with warm water. Because of its carbonated properties – which is the same principle behind the Chem-Dry solution – club soda also makes an excellent cleaner. Simply repeat what you did before, substituting the club soda in place of the water. If this doesn't get rid of it, then it's time to call in the pros. Our innovative and unique method uses a solution to break down unwanted particles from individual fibers, making us the most thorough and best choice for stain removal. We can get out every stain, guaranteed.

You may have a big family, or live alone. Either way, you have many more roommates than you can see.  Every time you leave your home, you track bacteria from outside into your carpets and onto your furniture. While this is just part of life, there are precautions that you can take to stop the spreading of these germs from your couch or your area rug to a dropped cookie or the fingers of a small child.

Chem-Dry uses a carbonated cleaning technique that is minimally invasive to your carpet fibers. We use 80% less water than our competitors, yet our powerful equipment extracts way more dirt and grime than any other carpet cleaning company out there. Also, our process provides you with a deeper clean, while maintaining a shorter drying time. That means there is less time for the bacteria and mold growing deep in your carpets and furniture to multiply and thrive on the moisture.

No one likes a roommate that skips out on rent. Don’t fall victim to the nasty mold stains or bacteria-filled carpets that could creep up on your before you know it!
