Chem-Dry, the world’s leading carpet and upholstery cleaning service with a network serving over 11,000 homes and businesses a day across 55 countries, announced the rollout of a specialized Sanitizing Service that targets areas of homes and workplaces most prone to viruses, bacteria and germs.
As the Healthy Home Authority®, Chem-Dry has been making homes and workplaces cleaner, healthier and safer for more than 25 years by combining its proprietary Hot Carbonating Extraction process with an EPA-registered, hospital-grade sanitizer for use on surfaces such as carpets, upholstery, rugs, tile/stone and wood floors, and granite countertops. The new Sanitizing Service for homes and workspaces will focus on applying a professional sanitizer to surfaces most vulnerable to the transmission of viruses, bacteria and germs.
“Coming through the COVID-19 pandemic, the way people think about the health and safety of their indoor environments will never be the same,” said Ed Quinlan, President of Chem-Dry, part of the BELFOR Franchise Group family of brands. “Chem-Dry has a long-standing reputation for creating cleaner, healthier spaces through our proprietary cleaning and sanitizing services..”
The Chem-Dry protocols follow CDC guidelines and recommendations for home cleaning to help stop the spread of viruses, bacteria, and germs, including the use of a hospital-grade sanitizer that is registered with the EPA. Based on lab testing, its sanitizer eliminates 99.9% of bacteria and viruses from hard non-porous surfaces like tile, stone, wood, laminates and vinyl and is approved by the EPA for use against SARS-CoV-2, the cause of COVID-19.
