Hi. My name is Amanda and this is my first ever blog. It’s actually my first ever blog post. For those of you that know me (and how much I can talk) it’s probably quite surprising that I haven’t ventured down this path before. Now that I have, well it could be like opening Pandora’s box! 


So why exactly do I want to write a blog? The answer is quite simple really. I am an owner of a fabulous business called Chem-Dry Austyle, a busy mum of two small and exceptionally energetic children & I have oodles & oodles of spare time to indulge in creative writing … Not! (I just wanted to see if you’d keep reading & you’re still here which is excellent!)


As I said, I am a busy mum & a business owner with NO time to spare – something that I am sure many mums can relate to. So I want to write a blog that not only provides an insight into my world of being a small business owner, a working mum (to describe – let’s go with ‘organised chaos’) & also provide an insight into Chem-Dry Austyle. I also want to tell you how our products and services will not only save you time, but create a cleaner & healthier environment for your family or workplace – something I am sure we are all wanting to achieve. I don’t know if your place is like mine, but some days I swear it’s like trying to tidy up in a tornado! I’d like a clean house, without the use of harsh chemicals & I’d like a dinner with George Clooney or even Brad Pitt, no and Brad Pitt. Whoops! Got carried away there! Scratch the last bit (as that’s never going to happen) but the cleaning without the harsh chemicals – that I can do.


The Chem in Chem-Dry stands for Chemistry. The proprietary cleaning solution used is called The Natural™, which is carbonated (like soda water) and the bubbles generated penetrate the carpet fiber, dissolving the dirt and act as a propellant that actually lifts the dirt to the surface for removal. This unique process uses a fraction of the water that steam cleaning does (steam cleaning soaks the carpet & the backing which can take days to dry & who has the time to wait for this?!) Carpets cleaned by Chem-Dry are dry in 1-2 hours which is brilliant for high use areas or houses with kids when the carpets need to dry fast. Unlike other carpet cleaning products, The Natural™ does not contain soaps, detergents, organic solvents, optical brighteners, bleaches, phosphates, petroleum based materials, thickeners, fragrances, artificial colours, plastics or polymers (put simply) no dirt attracting soapy residues so carpets & upholstery will stay cleaner for longer. It’s also ideal for those who are chemically sensitive. Essentially, it’s Drier. Cleaner. Healthier. ®


Our family business Chem-Dry Austyle has been operating since 1992 & I can proudly inform you that we have customers that have been with us since we started. In an age where everyone wants the next biggest, best, fastest & cheapest thing – I think that kind of customer loyalty comes back to quality products, quality service & the fact that we care. We care about our customers (or Austylers as I call them) & do not employ subcontractors. Our customers see value for money in what we provide & they trust us. They trust the Chem-Dry brand, which has been around for over 35 years. Years of training, research, development & hands on hard work have gone into creating a superior cleaning system that will change how you think about cleaning. Take a look at our website to find out more or send me an email to if you have any questions.


 I really hope you check out my next blog – until then, later Austylers!
