Chem-Dry introduces the most innovative piece of equipment in its 35 year history!

Chem-Dry is the world’s largest carpet cleaning franchise with more than 4,500 franchises worldwide. Our franchisees have access to the company’s patented products and 35 years of experience to continue making people’s homes and workplaces cleaner and healthier. No other company cleans more carpets than us – we clean over 1 billion square feet of carpet every year! Chem-Dry has unveiled a new, advanced portable unit with all the cleaning power of larger traditional equipment but at a fraction of the cost and size. The new XTS (Cross-Over Truck-Mount System) is the company’s latest innovation in its proprietary hot carbonating extraction cleaning process, known for providing a deeper, healthier and faster-drying cleaning for carpets and upholstery. While the extraction power with the company’s existing truck-mounted system is located in a van, the XTS places the extraction power directly on top of the Powerhead cleaning unit, much closer to the carpet. So in addition to being portable with a compact footprint, the XTS’s innovative design offers optimized vacuum efficiency. In testing, Chem-Dry franchise owners also noted that the XTS is easier to use than other portable units. Its simplicity and compactness — easily wheeled around a home or workspace — means much lower investment, maintenance and repair costs for franchise owners. The unit’s compact size fits into a smaller and less expensive van, which also saves on fuel costs and is better for the environment. The Carpet and Rug Institute (CRI), the carpet industry’s leading trade association, has rated all of the XTS’s equipment models Platinum – its highest level – in its Seal of Approval program. But hot water extraction doesn’t work only on carpet. It works just as well on upholstery and tile, and our franchisees excel at pet stain removal, Oriental rug cleaning, and water damage repair and restoration work. The most common alternative is steam cleaning, which works only to a point. Steam cleaners dump gallons of hot water onto carpet, then suck up the dirty water with a high-pressure vacuum. The suction can damage the carpet, and the excessive water can soak into the backing of the carpet, creating a moist breeding ground for mould and mildew. There’s a reason why our patented cleaning solution is called The Natural. We’ve used it in homes for more than 20 years, earning the Carpet and Rug Institute’s Seal of Approval.

Franchises with this new ment are piece of equip ST – but $39,000 plus G 5,000 plus reduced to $3 within GST if settled 21 days.
