- one kid caused a toilet overflow
- the other kid smeared 2 chairs with peanut butter
I decided to call the professionals. Which carpet cleaning service is the best in Brentwood, TN?
Here’s my experience using Chem-Dry of Tennessee to clean our Berber carpet and stained upholstery…
It wasn’t cheap.
But did you see that peanut butter?
I didn’t think I could tackle that on my own!
Luckily, Chem-Dry of Tennessee worked us into the schedule the very next day. Our cleaner showed up promptly at 10 am and gave me a full estimate before beginning work.
Here’s what our carpet and upholstery cleaning cost:
- $45 for steam cleaning the chair
- $130 for 2 rooms of Berber carpet using the Chem-Dry method
- $60 for a room-size oriental rug cleaned on site
I was surprised by the good results! The Berber carpet in both bedrooms was very stained. Our rental Rug Doctor experience was not successful, so I had my doubts about Chem-Dry.
Not only did Chem-Dry remove the basic dirt, it also took away some mystery stains that no amount of hand-scrubbing could handle.
What about the chemical smell?
I was a little hesitant to have Chem-Dry “chemical” fumes in the house, but we didn’t mind the orange scent at all. It took about a day and a half for the smell to fade.
The carpets did take longer than the estimated 2 hours to dry, but were walkable by bedtime.
How about Chem-Dry upholstery cleaning?
The cleaning removed all visible peanut butter (and a lot of ground-in dirt I’m sure I never saw).
I was least pleased with the oriental rug cleaning. Though the lighter parts of the rug looked whiter, a few persistent food stains remained.
I would definitely call Chem-Dry again for the Berber carpet. It is much harder to steam-clean than regular pile. Since we were near the point of replacing it altogether, I didn’t mind the cost.
There are several Chem-Dry franchises that serve the Brentwood area. We used Chem-Dry of Tennessee at (615) 251-1901.
