Business all over the world call in Chem-Dry to clean their office carpets and chairs on a regular bases to maintain their company’s image and investment. Did you know we do more than just clean? The Chem-Dry cleaning process not only removes the stains, but also removes harmful allergens from carpets and upholstery.
Allergies can have an impact on productivity in the workplace. It is estimated that missed work and reduced productivity due to allergies cost U.S. companies more than $250 million a year.
Did you know typical allergens that cause allergy attacks, such as dust mites, pet dander and pollen, are not just found in homes. Allergens make their way into the work place on employees and customers’ shoes and clothing. Carpets, area rugs, upholstered office chairs, furniture and even cubicle walls are great filters, trapping allergens and bacteria and keeping them out of the air we breathe at work.
But, just like an air filter, they become full over time and must be properly cleaned to remain most effective at trapping particulates as they settle from the air.
Carpeting is now the number one floor covering in many commercial settings. The introduction of cubicles and workstations mean that fabric can cover many businesses from floor to ceiling.
Working with Chem-Dry, you’ll be able to ensure healthier indoor air in the work place for both staff members and customers. Having your carpets, upholstery and cubicle walls professionally cleaned on a regular basis will greatly reduce the common allergens and bacteria found in the work place.
To determine just how big an impact the Chem-Dry cleaning process can have on indoor air quality and the health of everyone inside, we thought it would be beneficial to measure how effective our cleaning process is in eliminating unhealthy and unwanted elements from indoor spaces.
So we commissioned a leading independent air quality laboratory to conduct a study using Chem-Dry’s Hot Carbonating Extraction (HCE) process in multiple homes. The Laboratory found that Chem-Dry removes an average of 98.1% of common allergens from the carpets and upholstery we clean. The common allergens we tested include cat and dog dander and dust mite allergen*.
Indoor air quality in the work environment can profoundly affect the health, comfort and productivity of your workforce. Office buildings are often a source of health complaints for a lot of employees and it’s not surprising considering every square inch of carpet harbors about 200,000 bacteria. As the bacteria builds up in the carpets, it gets stirred up and circulates in the air your workforce are breathing unless you clean it.
A Chem-Dry cleaning is not only effective at removing the bacteria from the carpets we clean, but it also improves the air quality in your work environment. The same leading independent air quality laboratory found that, when adding sanitizer to our HCE carpet cleaning process, we removed an average of 89% of the bacteria in the air and 82.3% of the bacteria from carpets.
