Chem-Dry of Chapel Hill- Durham Eco-Friendly Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning


Chem-Dry cares about the health and well-being of our customers and employees.

For more than 40 years, Chem-Dry has been committed to providing our customers with a healthy home and workplace. As we all adjust our lives during the current flu season and Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation, we want to share the steps we are taking to ensure that our services are being delivered in the healthiest manner to help you clean your home and protect your family.

The Chem-Dry approach encompasses three key considerations:

  1. Operator

Our professional technicians are trained to take special precautions to ensure a healthier environment including wearing personal protective equipment (i.e., disposable gloves, shoe covers and masks when appropriate), regularly washing hands and minimizing physical interactions. Our technicians are friendly and caring – and your health is our primary concern.

We invite all our customers to please inform the local Chem-Dry office that performs your service about any special conditions you have so the technicians can prepare properly. This includes any concerns or conditions in your home such as current or recent illnesses of family members.  You may benefit from our expertise as The Healthy Home Authority® for cleaning services as well as other services. Our professional technicians can recommend the best services and overall solution for your specific situation. 

A healthy team is also important at Chem-Dry. We are asking our team members in our locations across the country and in our corporate offices to take proper measures to minimize risk, including personal care and protection, and to stay home if/when they feel ill until they recover completely. 

  1. Chemistry

We are asking our technicians to offer to apply our hospital-grade sanitizer as an optional service for every customer. This important service can provide a healthier environment than cleaning alone. Our hospital-grade sanitizers are also proven to kill viruses[1]. We have been sanitizing homes for over 20 years and are experts at improving your home’s cleanliness and health.

  1. Tools & Equipment

Our routine protocols include local operators completing a daily comprehensive cleaning of equipment. As an added precaution, we are also asking technicians to apply our hospital-grade sanitizer and wipe down equipment between each cleaning service to introduce clean equipment into the next home.

Note that Chem-Dry technicians are experts in cleaning surfaces in both residential and commercial environments. Some of the nation’s top retailers and offices trust Chem-Dry to help them maintain a healthier environment for their employees and customers. Whether it’s your home or business, you can be confident in our professional team of Healthy Home experts.

With a high degree of focus and attention to these three areas, our team is prepared to help you achieve and maintain a healthier environment. Concern for you, your home or workplace, and everyone in it is our primary concern.

We invite you to stay up-to-date with recommended actions for consumers for COVID-19 by checking the CDC website at

Since 1994 Chem-Dry of Chapel Hill-Durham has been proudly serving our Durham and Orange Counties, including Durham, Chapel Hill, Hillsborough, Mebane, Research Triangle Park, and Pittsboro communities by helping our customers maintain a clean, healthy, happy home.

Our advantage in customer service satisfaction is technician experience.  Our average technician experience is 14 years--very rare in the home service industry, or any other industry.  One reason for our unusually high level of experience is the large job satisfaction we get from the wonderful results and satisfied customers.  Our technicians think of their job as a career, not as a temporary way to pay bills.

Another reason for our customer satisfaction and large repeat business is owing to our franchises' proprietary low water, hot carbonating, deep clean extraction process combined with our non-toxic, exclusively green-certified solution.  The result leaves your home not only cleaner but safer and healthier, too.

Chem-Dry of Chapel Hill-Durham (Chem-Dry of Durham, Chem-Dry of Chapel Hill) is a locally owned and operated international franchise.  Be aware that there are other Chem-Dry franchises, but only one is named Chem-Dry of Chapel Hill-Durham.  We provide superior carpet and upholstery cleaning, in-home oriental rug cleaning, proprietary wood floor cleaning and polishing, and tile/grout cleaning.  Our most famous product may be the pet urine treatment.  Chem-Dry's patented pet urine treatment is amazing--the best in the business; the treatment breaks down the urine and makes it go away.

When you receive a coupon in the mail offering carpet cleaning services, please read the fine print.  In many cases these coupons advertise the old, less effective Chem-Dry method, which we have never used.  Additionally, your final cost by using these coupons may be significantly higher than our fair, daily prices.

At Chem-Dry of Chapel Hill-Durham, we provide professional carpet cleaning & upholstery cleaning, wood floor cleaning, and tile/grout cleaning Durham, Chapel Hill, Hillsborough, Mebane, and Pittsboro. Our mission is to serve our customers every day by helping them maintain a clean, healthy, happy home. Our proprietary Hot Carbonating Extraction cleaning process uses the cleaning power of carbonation to lift and extract dirt and grime from your carpet and upholstery fiber, delivering a superior cleaning while using 90% less water than traditional steam cleaning. Since we use less water, your carpet dries in 1-2 hours (excluding areas requiring additional stain treatments), so there won't be a musty smell once your carpet dries.

Professionally trained carpet cleaning technicians


We provide our industry-leading carpet and upholstery cleaning services in Durham, Chapel Hill, Mebane, Research Triangle Park, Pittsboro and the surrounding area.

No, we're not a steam cleaner. Chem-Dry of Chapel Hill-Durham uses carbonation to lift and extract dirt and grime from your carpet and upholstery. This allows for a deeper cleaning without using gallons of water that typical steam cleaners use.

All of the ingredients in Chem-Dry's primary cleaner, The Natural, are on the F.D.A.'s G.R.A.S. (Generally Recognized as Safe) list and are safe for your carpets, your home and your family. The Natural does not contain any soaps or harsh chemicals. So you can rest assured that we're making your home healthier, not just cleaner.

Chem-Dry of Chapel Hill - Durham uses a hospital-grade sanitizer. Our Hospital-Grade Sanitizers are effective at eliminating 99.9% of bacteria from hard non-porous surfaces like tile, stone, wood, laminates and vinyl. Our Hospital-Grade Sanitizers have also been approved by the EPA for use against the Novel Coronavirus SARS-CoV-2, the cause of COVID-19.* So when you choose us to clean your carpet and upholstery, you can rest assured that you are getting professional-grade solutions for a healthier home.

Pet odors can linger on for months if not treated properly. As urine dries in the carpet and padding it crystalizes. The millions of concentrated urine crystals that are left become even more pungent. Many companies just mask this odor with perfumes which will eventually wear off. Chem-Dry uses a patented system, P.U.R.T.® (Pet Urine Removal Treatment) to explode the urine crystals and break down the enzymes. This process gets rid of the pet urine odor forever!

Chem-Dry’s cleaning process is better and healthier than other methods for your carpet and upholstery cleaning. Chem-Dry’s unique hot carbonating extraction carpet cleaning method uses the power of carbonation to extract more dirt and grime from your carpets, giving them a deeper and longer lasting clean. Our carbonated cleaning solution only requires us to use a fraction of the moisture other methods such as steam cleaning require. This allows your carpets to dry faster, typically in 1-2 hours.

Industry experts suggest that homeowners clean their carpets every 3-6 months especially homes with kids, pets or if someone in your home has asthmas or allergies. Regular cleaning will not only improve your home’s appearance, but it will eliminate germs and allergens, improve your home’s indoor air quality and extend the life of your carpet and upholstery.

We use our proprietary Hot Carbonating Extraction process, featuring our core cleaner The Natural. The carbonated cleaning bubbles release dirt, soil, airborne allergens and spots from the upholstery fibers. Then, we use our extraction equipment to remove the cleaning solution, dirt, soil and airborne contaminants from your furniture. Leaving you with a cleaner couch than other alternatives could provide.
