Healthy Home Healthy Environment


Is there a way to get your carpets and upholstery cleaned without using harmful chemicals in your home? The answer is YES! All County Chem-Dry is not only healthier for your home, but it is healthier for the environment too through their proprietary Hot Carbonating Extraction (HCE) cleaning methods and primary cleaning solution that's Green Certified, called The Natural! The Natural is safe and non-toxic for people and pets, it does not contain any soaps or detergents. Therefore, the Natural does not leave behind any dirt-attracting residue.

All County Chem-Dry in Wilmington, NC not only uses Green Certified cleaning solutions, but they use the power of carbonation instead of high pressure water, so we use about one-fifth the amount of water that steam cleaning typically uses.Traditional carpet cleaning is what the majority of carpet cleaners use to clean their clients carpets. The problem with this technique is that it drives gallons of soapy water at high pressures into carpets and then try's to suck up as much of that dirty soapy water as they can. This process leaves a sticky, dirt-attracting residue on carpets that makes them get dirtier faster after cleaning and plus, the excessive amount of water means the carpet takes much longer to dry and often soaks through to the backing of the carpet, creating a breeding ground for mold and mildew. Moreover, the more water you put into carpet, the longer it takes to dry and the more likely the carpet is to have unhealthy things grow in and under it!

Using All County Chem-Dry’s HCE process rather than typical steam cleaning to clean carpets saves approximately 20 gallons of water per cleaning across the 11,000 cleanings we do each day worldwide. That comes out to an estimated:

  • 220,000 gallons a day

  • 1.3 Million gallons a week

  • Over 68 Million gallons a year

Cleaning your carpets and upholstery does not have to be a hassle. In fact, it can be a delight knowing that you are not only getting a clean home but you are helping the environment and world around you!
