Healthcare Facilities Showcase Chem-Dry’s Value In Home Health Care
Removal of allergens and improving air quality make Chem-Dry a valuable partner for healthcare providers in homes and medical facilities
One major benefit to owning and operating a Chem-Dry cleaning franchise is the ability to help home and business owners create a healthier environment. That’s because in addition to environmentally friendly cleaning services, Chem-Dry’s processes also remove most allergens from the environment, improving air quality.
“Medical facilities are known for being spotless, but often floors are overlooked,” says Doug Smith, Senior Vice President of Franchise Development. “A Chem-Dry team can deeply clean both carpet and tile surfaces, which benefits patients, their families and healthcare workers, so it’s a real win for everyone involved.”
Sanitation is key to medical care
Keeping carpets sanitary isn’t the chief focus of healthcare providers, nor should it be. Their attention to detail when it comes to patient care is mirrored by a Chem-Dry cleaning franchise team, which can deploy all the proper maintenance and preventive measures to clean carpets and floors effectively, eliminating dirt and allergens from them as well as the air.
Chem-Dry has analyzed how, and where, carpets and floors get the dirtiest, and utilizes that knowledge in every cleaning. For instance, the majority of dirt brought in from outdoors gets trapped in the carpet after the first 30 feet from the entry way. And according to a University of Arizona study, nine different types of pathogens or bacteria can thrive on shoes alone and can be entering a home or other indoor space. These unseen invaders can be very damaging to both healthy individuals as well as those who are ill, which is why Chem-Dry recommends carpet cleaning and sanitizing every six months.
Full-service cleaning options boost business
“We recommend cleaning at least that often, especially for healthcare facilities or homes where someone is being cared for,” Doug says. “Once a Chem-Dry cleaning franchise operator meets with health care facility operators, or homeowners, and explains why they are very eager to have their carpets and floors cleaned. That helps them improve their care, but also helps franchise owners grow their book of business.”
Chem-Dry’s whole line of Healthy Home cleaning options, including its Hot Carbonating Extraction process, are key to that partnership, Doug adds.
“If you’re cleaning carpets or floors with harsh chemicals, you could be doing just as much damage to the breathable air as the dirt and allergens were,” he says. “Chem-Dry’s safe, clean and efficient cleaning methods are a much better alternative for both surfaces being cleaned and as the people who are walking on them.”
