Green Certified Cleaning
GREEN Carpet Cleaners in Columbia
Every cleaning solution you use ends up back in our environment, whether it’s through being thrown out, released into the air, or carried out on your shoes. We wouldn’t put soaps, detergents, phosphates, or other harsh chemicals directly in our air, lakes, streams, or forests–so why add them to your carpets? At Grace Chem-Dry, we believe in sustainability and have worked toward offering a Green solution to carpet cleaning in Columbia and the surrounding areas for the past two decades.
Chem-Dry’s flagship cleaning solution, The Natural®, uses ingredients found on the F.D.A.’s G.R.A.S. list; however, our dedication to being green and sustainable doesn’t stop there. Our cleaning processes use one-fifth the water that steam cleaners use, helping to ensure a healthier, greener home.
Our Green Cleaning Standards
Chem-Dry® is continuously working toward advancements in green carpet cleaning. Our commitment to sustainability is part of our mission to provide everyone with a cleaner and healthier living environment.
