Stains are stubborn! The chemical bonds which cause stains are quite strong; and to break these bonds, you need an equally strong chemical.

Carbonation Process on Carpets..

Try this, pour some soda in a beaker or a wide glass and put some raisins into it and watch what happens.. Immediately you will see the raisins are pushed on top by the bubbles arising from the bottom. The bubbles or froth forming process is called "carbonation process".

This is a simple lab procedure which is applied in carpet cleaning and works perfectly!

Want to know how and why?

Well, in the first place, you don’t need soapy liquid to wash the carpet. Also, with soap you require a lot of water to rinse off the soap which in turn increases the time required for drying. However, the carbonation process needs very little water. 

Here, first the carpet is sprayed with our patent spot remover product and then the carbonation process works its magic, pushing the dust and other stubborn particles on top and out of the carpet.

The process follows a simple W.A.T.C.H. process i.e.
T= Time
C= Chemicals
H= Heat

Water: Without water it is impossible to get the carpet clean, but the amount of water used is adequate and not too much nor too less.

Agitation: Without agitation it’s difficult to get off stubborn stains. One of the best examples could be 'you cant clean dishes without scrubbing'.

Time: The carpet needs to soak a bit after water is sprayed over it. SO time factor is important to let it soak appropriately.

Chemicals: Classique ChemDry uses eco friendly products to do cleaning; now the advantage of this is that it gentler on the carpet and the inhabitants too.

Heat: Heat is necessary to get out all stains; heat breaks difficult stain bonds which normally don’t break in normal water.

Try Classique ChemDry’s unique carbonation cleaning process to clean your carpet in the best possible way. Your carpets will not only be brighter but will also smell fresher and your home will be much more healthier than before. Schedule a professional cleaning today.

Some feedback we got from a nasty mould job recently..

Hi Bryan,

Andrew and I would like to thank you, your wife Chris and your team for all the hard work you did on our insurance claim this year. Your team showed themselves to be very professional and without your help we would hate to think what state we would be in.

Bryan with your advanced knowledge of mould and water damage to homes we are extremely grateful as we were unaware of the dangers we were living with.

We can’t thank you enough for all your hard work, as you ran this claim faultlessly, always willing to take my phone calls and answer my questions at any time, which was very comforting when the situation we were in was so extremely stressful.

We are gradually getting through the boxes now that most of the building works are completed. Will let you know when we have finished and hopefully catch up for a couple of well deserved cold ones.

Kindest regards,

Rochelle and Andrew McMahon

Your Carpet ain't the Bad Guy!

Don’t think of your carpet as the bad guy, it works as a filter. Your carpet collects the dust around you by trapping them below the pad where you won’t be troubled by breathing them in. Of coarse every hero has a side kick and so your carpet too needs help every now and then. Therefore regular vacuuming and cleaning helps remove the small dust particles from fibers on the top. Pay close attention to the edges around your walls because dirt collects there and when your cooling cycle is on, it often pulls greasy dirt to that area. That is why you get those black lines on the edges of your carpet. They are called filtration lines. Chem dry has a process which removes most of the filtration lines if not all.

Even if you clean your carpets regularly, meticulously remove dirt and other allergens that help extend life of your carpet but if you want to help your family breathe easier you should consider Professional cleaning every six months to a year. It is much cheaper than replacing your carpet every 8 to 10 years.
