APWA Reporter Why Hire A Certified Arborist?

15 May, 2015

Finding An Arborist

An arborist is a specialist who is trained in the art and science of planting, caring for, and maintaining individual trees.


Arborists are knowledgeable about the needs of trees and are trained and equipped to provide proper care.

That, in turn, can inform government decision-makers making urban tree policies.

So in addition to getting rid of dirt.


, another important reason to clean your carpet is to get rid of residue from tobacco smoke.

Before I went into business as a ChemDry franchisee, not knowing any better, I had the carpets in my home cleaned twice, by 2 of the big names in steam cleaning, both times the drying times were well over 8 hrs.

Fullerton NE custom homes

This is a problem mostly associated with the steam cleaning process.


Because the steamcleaning process leaves so much more moisture in the carpet, but at the same time does not clean as deep, spots and stains will at first be gone, but later re-appear, this is called "wicking".


Sorry but the statement that a do-it-yourself machine, be it Rug Doctor, Bisell, or whatever, will do a better cleaning than a professional cleaner, especially a ChemDry cleaner is just plain ridiculous.
