Chem-Dry unveils XTS cleaning unit

Chem-Dry unveils XTS cleaning unit
December 18, 2012

Nashville — Chem-Dry has unveiled a new, advanced portable unit with all the cleaning power of larger traditional equipment but at a fraction of the cost and size.

The new XTS (Cross-Over Truck-Mount System) is the company’s latest innovation in its proprietary hot carbonating extraction cleaning process, known for providing a deeper, healthier and faster-drying cleaning for carpets and upholstery.

While the extraction power with the company’s existing truck-mounted system is located in a van, the XTS places the extraction power directly on top of the PowerHead cleaning unit, much closer to the carpet. So in addition to being portable with a compact footprint, the XTS’s innovative design offers optimized vacuum efficiency.  In testing, Chem-Dry franchise owners also noted that the XTS is easier to use than other portable units.

“Our new XTS is a huge step forward in the industry,” said Dan Tarantin, president and CEO of Chem-Dry’s parent company, Harris Research. “No other surface cleaning company offers a cleaning system that is this portable, powerful, affordable and delivers such a superior customer experience.”

The XTS unit is designed to excel at cleaning carpet and upholstery, Chem-Dry’s core business. Its simplicity and compactness — easily wheeled around a home or workspace — means much lower investment, maintenance and repair costs for franchise owners. The unit’s compact size fits into a smaller and less expensive van, which also saves on fuel costs and is better for the environment. At roughly half the cost of Chem-Dry’s CTS truck-mounted units, the XTS creates a lower cost option for current franchise owners to expand and an opportunity to provide a lower total investment and stronger return on investment.

The Carpet and Rug Institute (CRI), the carpet industry’s leading trade association, has rated all of the XTS’s equipment models Platinum – its highest level – in its Seal of Approval program. The CRI’s ratings are based on a rigorous evaluation of the key performance areas of each unit, including soil removal, carpet texture retention, and rate of resoiling.
