Business Overview

Community Involvement

Colonial Chem-Dry is a proud supporter of Best Friends Animal Society which supports rescue pet adoption. We donated over $1500 in 2017.

How We Got Started

I chose to work in this industry because the Chem-Dry process offered a more effective, more convenient alternative to traditional steam cleaning without the use of harsh chemicals. Chem-Dry cleaning products are safe and non-toxic to people and pets. .

We started in this industry in 1983.

We describe our business as Family owned and operated

What is the difference between Chem-Dry and traditional steam cleaning?

Chem-Dry uses the deep cleaning power of carbonation rather than harsh chemicals.

Review by in East Greenwich, RI
Liked everything about what was done except for the timing. Got up early on a nasty rainy morning to be ready for my 8 to 10 a.m. scheduled slot. Representative courteously called at 9:40 a.m. to say he would be there by 10:30. Not his fault, but the company could have told me by the day before that his first job was an hour away in CT. They promised to send a reminder email and to make a follow-up call after he finished the job. Neither happened. Representative did a great job with the cleaning, however, so I am a satisfied customer overall.

Review by in Cranston, RI
They were on time, (a bit early actually), and the technician was very polite. He took the time to listen to my concerns about the stained carpet area and told me exactly how he was going to handle it. Most of the stain is gone, and the rest of the carpet looks great. They were fast and efficient. I would definitely hire them again.
Response by Colonial Chem Dry: Thank you for your review Barbara! We appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback.

Review by in Cranston, RI
The rugs look great. They got me in while I was away. That's the good stuff. I was quoted $140 but when the guy showed up he wanted $300 plus (not happening). They told me 10am. When I called the office because they were late they said they gave me a window (not true).
Response by Colonial Chem Dry: I'm glad you were pleased with how your rugs look. As far as the pricing goes, our company charges by the square foot rather than a set room rate, so the price is determined by the actual size of the room(s). We feel this is the most fair method of pricing, because customers that have smaller rooms pay less than customers with larger rooms. We do our best to provide a ballpark estimate over the phone, based on our customers estimated room sizes. When our technician comes out for the cleaning, he measures and provides an exact price based on the actual sizes of the rooms. So if the rooms are larger than estimated, the price increases. I apologize for the misunderstanding regarding the appointment time. Unless yours is the first appointment of the day, t's nearly impossible to give an exact time of arrival, so we give a two hour window for arrival. For example arriving some time between 10:00 am and 12:00 pm. Some jobs take longer to clean than average due to extreme soil or a lot of furniture that has to be moved. We want to be able to devote the necessary time to provide a great cleaning to every customer regardless of special circumstances. The 2 hour window allows us to do so. Occasionally a customer misinterprets the 2 hour window to mean we will arrive at 10:00 am and finish at 12:00 pm. Again I apologize for the misunderstanding.

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.
