Top 4 Scariest Things Living in Your Carpet

The most frightening time of the year is here, it is Halloween! Scaring your friends and family might be your favorite pastime, but we have something even more terrifying!

We have created a list of the scariest things that are living in your carpet. These things won't leave with a good vacuuming, they need the Chem-Dry ghostbusters to get them out for good!


The bottom of your shoes, bags and purses are just a few of the things that carry the most bacteria. What makes it worse is that you are bringing those things into your home. Eeew!


If you get your carpets steam cleaned, you might have mold. Most steam cleaners dump gallons of water into your carpets, leaving you a perfect place for mold to grow. Chem-Dry is different, see how our process works.


Dust mites, pests, pet dander, pollen, are just a few of the things that can cause your allergies to flare up! Your home acts like a filter, catching allergens and trapping them in your carpets and upholstery. Just like filters, your home's filters need to be cleaned often!

Dust Mites

Under a microscope these actually look like spiders crawling around. GROSS! They live off of dead skin flakes. These little crawlers are also a common cause of allergic and asthma symptoms throughout the world. There are many ways to reduce them, just ask out experts!
