Benefits of Choosing Chem-Dry of Lake Tahoe

drier carpets
The Chem-Dry cleaning process uses 80% less water than typical steam cleaning so when we clean carpets, they dry within hours, not days. This means you and your family can get back to your everyday routine sooner and not have to walk across soggy carpets.
cleaner carpets
Our primary solution is unique because it uses microscopic carbonate bubbles to penetrate deep into your carpet’s fibers. The carbonation lifts the dirt, stains, and other grime from deep within your carpets so it can be cleaned away completely away with our powerful extraction equipment. This unique approach to carpet cleaning gives you the most thorough clean, instead of just cleaning the surface of your carpets. Plus, there is no dirt-attracting soap residue left behind, so carpets stay cleaner longer.
healthier carpets
Because we use a low-water method, there is far less risk of mold and mildew growth under your carpet that often results from the excessive water used by steam cleaning machines. This means your carpets are healthier for you, your family, and your pets. We use a cleaning solution that does not contain any harsh soaps or chemicals and is completely safe and non-toxic for children and pets. If thats not convincing enough, an independent lab found that our HCE method removes common allergens in your carpets and upholstery. That adds up to a safer carpet cleaning service that is healthier for you, your family and your Lake Tahoe home.

This was my first time ordering any type of carpet cleaning service. I am so glad that I decided to try Chem-Dry of Lake Tahoe. I have never experienced such amazing customer service for literally anything in my life. I spoke with Nora on the phone and she did everything in her power to make sure I had an exceptional service and she and her team absolutely delivered on it. I highly recommend using Chem-Dry of Lake Tahoe because they are professional, courteous, responsive, and have the best customer service team!

We have four dogs and our carpet was pretty gross. Even with regular vacuuming with our Dyson animal, the Chem-Dry team still pulled an absurd amount of hair and dirt up. I'm genuinely impressed with how thorough of a job their team did and will be using them regularly from now on!


Frequently Asked Questions

How does Chem-Dry compare to steam cleaning?

Traditional steam cleaning often soaks carpets with an excessive amount of water filled with soaps and detergents. Carpets are then wet for 1-2 days, which creates a breeding ground for mold and mildew. Plus the soapy residue left behind attracts dirt and causes your carpets to get dirty much faster.

On the other hand, Chem-Dry of Lake Tahoe’s process is very different. We need only a fraction of the water that typical steam cleaners use and instead rely on millions of microscopic bubbles to explode dirt from deep in your carpet fibers. We can then quite easily extract the dirt and moisture from the carpet.

How do you remove pet urine odor from carpets?

Pet odors can linger for months if not treated properly. As urine dries in the carpet and padding, what’s left are millions of concentrated urine crystals that become even more pungent. Many companies just mask this odor. Chem-Dry uses a patented system, P.U.R.T.® (Pet Urine Removal Treatment), to explode the urine crystals and break down the enzymes which gets rid of the pet urine odor forever.

Will my carpets re-soil quickly after the cleaning is finished?

Not with Chem-Dry of Lake Tahoe. Many carpet cleaners including steam cleaners use soaps and detergents in their process. These soaps leave behind sticky residue that attracts dirt, leading to carpets re-soiling quickly after JUST being cleaned and often requires more frequent professional cleanings. At Chem-Dry of Lake Tahoe, we use a biodegradable carpet and upholstery cleaning solution that doesn’t contain any soaps, detergents or harsh chemicals, so it won’t leave any sticky or dirt-attracting residue.

How long will it take for my carpet to dry completely?

Drying time depends on humidity levels, airflow to the room(s) cleaned, and the type of carpet. In general, turning on your air conditioning or fans will help accelerate dry times. After a professional cleaning, it typically takes 1-2 hours for the carpet to dry. Sometimes carpets can take longer to dry for various reasons.

Should I vacuum before you arrive?

This is not necessary. Our professionally trained technicians will vacuum your carpets with our commercial, HEPA-filtered vacuum when they arrive as a standard part of our service.

What is considered a room?

Our room sizes are based on 150 sq ft. If any of your rooms are over 150 sq ft, there may be an additional area charge. Hallways and stairs are considered to be separate from a room.
