Spring cleaning is always a good idea to make your home healthier even if you don't have muddy paw prints or dirty, muddy boots at your home. Spring is in the air...even if we are suppose to get a cold front blast through our Michiana area Tuesday...and Chem-Dry can help!

Did you know that carpet and upholstery in your home act as  giant air filters to help trap allergens, bacteria and dirt out of the air we breathe? And just like your home's air filter becomes full and needs regular cleaning, so do your carpets and upholstery. You can ensure healthier indoor air in your home by keeping your carpets and upholstery clean and in good condition through regular vacuuming and having your carpets, upholstery and rugs professionally cleaned on a regular basis. When you have Chem-Dry clean your carpets and upholstery you will rid your home of common allergens and bacteria.
