Chem-Dry Stain Removal Services

Your local Chem-Dry offers a range of services for carpet stains, rug stains, and upholstery stains. Here’s a closer look at the different ways we fight stains inside your home.

Carpet, Rug & Furniture Stain Removal

When you’re faced with tough stains on carpets, rugs, or furniture, you can trust the team at your local Chem-Dry!

Most carpet and upholstery stains can be fixed with our Hot Carbonating Extraction (HCE) cleaning process. This process uses a carbonated solution to lift stains out of your carpet and whisk them away. It relies on our proprietary core cleaner and uses roughly 80% less water than steam cleaning. This makes our HCE process a healthy choice for your home.

If Hot Carbonating Extraction (HCE) can’t get rid of your stain, we will suggest our Specialty Stain Removal service. Our wide array of stain removal products allows us to choose the safest and most effective remover for each stain. In the vast majority of cases, we can eliminate visible staining. Otherwise, we can minimize the stain to dramatically reduce its visibility.

Stain Protectant Treatments

Spills happen, even in the most careful households. When spills occur, a protectant can help reduce the risk of stains.

At Chem-Dry, we offer stain protectant as an add-on to our carpetrug, and upholstery cleaning services. Our protectant forms a shield around fibers in carpet, rugs, and upholstery. If a spill happens, the protectant will temporarily stop the liquids from penetrating the fabric. This gives you a window of opportunity to soak up the spill before it turns into a stain.

Want to prevent stains on your carpets and furniture? Simply ask your local Chem-Dry about how you can add a protectant to your cleaning.

Pet Stain & Odor Removal

Pet urine stains and odors can be tricky to remove. When pet messes soak through the carpet padding or down to the subfloor, the smell can last for years.

Our P.U.R.T.®  cleaning process can help you knock out pet urine odors for good. First, we’ll check for urine deposits with ultraviolet light. Then, we’ll clean the carpet with our Hot Carbonating Extraction (HCE) process. Finally, we’ll apply the P.U.R.T. product, which destroys the odor-causing material.

Frequently Asked Questions

Our stain removal services work on virtually any type of substance-based stain.

In other words, if there’s a substance staining your carpets — like soda, ink, or blood — we can help. We'll get the substance out of the carpet fibers, which eliminates or minimizes any visible staining.

While we can remove almost any substance from your carpets, we can’t remove stains caused by chemical reactions. (For example, our stain removal services can't remove bleach stains.)

Want to learn more about the products we use? Your local Chem-Dry technician will be happy to give more information about how our stain removers work. We can also explain why we choose certain products for different types of stains.

For most spills, the most important thing to do is to remove the material before it sets into the carpet fibers. If you can soak up the offending liquid quickly, you can often prevent a stain from forming.

Applying a stain guard or stain protectant can help you soak up spills before they stain your carpets. A protectant will prevent liquid from penetrating carpet fibers. This gives you valuable time to soak up the spill before the stain sets in.
