spot removal tips stain removal tips.jpg

Spots and stains are unavoidable, but that doesn’t need to mean you will be stuck with them indefinitely. We've got a few tips to help you maintain your carpets and upholstery by using some of our well-loved Chem-Dry products that you can get from Chem-Dry of St. Cloud. You should take action quickly! The more the stain sets, the harder it can be to have a quick and easy stain removal experience.

It is advisable to initially recognize whether the problematic blemish is a water based stain or an oil based stain so that you will find out what kind of product to use for removing the stain from your house. Dispose of as much of the excess stain as you can, if at all possible. It is ideal to blot, scrape, or brush whatever will come off, but however you tackle it, steer clear of rubbing it in at all costs! Test the material or carpeting with either Chem-Dry Professional Strength Spot Remover or Chem-Dry Grease & Oil Remover on a smaller sized, hidden place to make sure the product won’t result in any problems. To prevent the blemish from dispersing, work from the outside in.

If these solutions don’t give good results, call the professionals at Chem-Dry of St. Cloud. Don't forget to check out Protectant, a product for helping maintain your carpets or upholstery between professional cleanings. For big spills, ink stains, and spots from items which can chemically harm carpet, please contact us to be certain the house continues to be in the best state possible.

Chem-Dry vs. Steam Cleaning

A lot of customers new to Chem-Dry don’t recognize how our technique is noticeably different than what steam cleaners implement. There are many factors that display the Chem-Dry difference. With our excellent process, we do more than dump gallons of soapy water and severe chemicals in your house. The proprietary Hot Carbonating Extraction process that we depend on offers you a deeper clean, a quicker drying time, plus a safer carpet cleaning than what you can come across with typical steam cleaning providers.


Mainly due to the excessive amount of water and chemicals that standard steam cleaners use, you'll be stuck with damp carpets for 1-2 days. This provides a breeding ground for bacteria, mold, and mildew. Not only that, but the stiff or gluey deposit remaining will bring in dust and allow your carpets to quickly resume their dirty state.


We use countless effervescent bubbles to unlock particles deep within the carpet’s fibers and lift them to the exterior so our machines can extract them. We use about 1/5th of the water that a lot of steam cleaners depend on, on account of the design of our technique.


Our low-moisture process doesn’t use the excessive volume of water to soak through to the carpet backing and establish a breeding ground for bacteria, mold, and mildew. Comparable risks that come with steam cleaning won’t result in a threat when you use Chem-Dry of St. Cloud. We are able to provide you with a more beneficial and healthier cleaning opportunity. Your carpets can not only stay cleaner longer, but dry faster to help you return to your daily life in no time. The Chem-Dry way is unparalleled.

Are You Seeking Out Pet Urine and Odor Treatment?

Domestic cats and dogs are an essential and enjoyed piece of countless households. Even the most well-trained animals might have accidents and may come back to the same general location to urinate regularly. More than a basic cleaning service is often the necessity to take out the urine and odors. Here at Chem-Dry of St. Cloud, you will find a product recognized as PURT (Pet Urine Removal Treatment) that, on contact, promptly begins deteriorating the urine crystals.

What to Expect with PURT:

1. To start off, our highly trained technician determines the origin and severity of the scent. Often we find the urine simply by using a special instrument, like a black light. The carpet will then be washed with hot water and extracted to take out a lot of urine crystals.

2. The carpet would be pulled back around the trouble spots to reveal the magnitude of the damage, in the worst type of circumstance.

3. The pad could possibly be taken off and replaced if necessary.

4. An odor blocking shellac might need to be applied to the subfloor should it be established mandatory.

5. PURT is then put on heavily enough to soak in each of the urine impacted aspects.

6. The contents in PURT will interact with the urine and disintegrate the odor on the molecular level over the next 24-36 hours.

One of the benefits relating to this strategy is how harmless it is! Your home will smell clean and fresh again and your children and pets will not be in harm’s way. Learn more about PURT here.
