Carpet Cleaning

Carpets cleaned by CJ’s Chem-Dry are left dry within just a few hours, not a few days like other carpet cleaning methods (steam cleaning, shampooing). Unlike steam cleaners, we do not pump excessive amounts of soapy water into your carpeting and attempt to suck it back out. Chem-Dry utilizes a dry carpet cleaning approach that allows us to clean carpets with 80% less water than steam cleaners. Our organic carpet cleaning solution, The Natural®, is chemical-free and non-toxic, meaning it’s safe for your home, kids and pets. The Natural is also Green Certified and on the F.D.A.’s G.R.A.S. list, so you know it’s safe. The crystal clear, carbonated cleaning bubbles contained within The Natural effectively clean carpet & upholstery without the use of soaps, detergents or harsh chemicals.

Upholstery Cleaning

Chem-Dry’s secret to healthy and effective upholstery cleaning is in the power of carbonation. Our carbonated cleaning solution, The Natural®, uses millions of tiny bubbles to release stains from the upholstery fibers. Then, with a hot water extraction process, we pull dirt and grime to the surface. Our fabric-cleaning equipment gently agitates the fabric and pulls stains away. The non-toxic Chem-Dry cleaning system leaves your furniture as fresh as the day it was purchased – no sticky residue left behind. We work to help your upholstered furniture stay cleaner, longer.

Area Rug Cleaning

Similar to carpets and upholstered furniture, area rugs act as air filters for the home, trapping dirt, allergens and dust and preventing those unhealthy elements from circulating to other rooms. But area rugs are only able to do this properly if they are maintained and kept clean. Just as an air filter for your home ventilation system needs to be regularly replaced, your area rugs need to be regularly cleaned. Our team of pros at CJ’s Chem-Dry provide high-quality area rug cleaning services, focusing on care and attention to detail, that restore the rugs to their original beauty while removing dirt, allergens and dust.

Pet Urine Odor Removal

Our Pet Urine Removal Treatment, also known as P.U.R.T.®, is a revolutionary cleaning solution specially formulated to eliminate pet urine stains and odors. This product has shown excellent results on even the most severe urine damaged areas and other odor-causing spots. It works to stop the smell at its source instead of simply masking the odor. When P.U.R.T.® contacts the source of the odor, it immediately begins a chemical reaction that destroys the urine odor. Along with removing pet urine odors, we remove the stain deep at its source to ensure that the spots & odors don’t return to your home.

Wood Floor Cleaning

Wood floors need to be cleaned regularly just like carpets and other floors do in order to stay looking great. Your wood floor’s grain might be hiding allergens, dirt, and dust, in addition to looking a little worse for wear over time. Our wood floor cleaning service deep cleans your wood to leave it cleaner and healthier. We finish off with a sealant to leave your wood floors looking great, streak-free, and shiny!
