CRYSTAL DRY®
Encapsulation Carpet Cleaning Chemistry to Meet Your Carpet's Needs

Over 20 years ago, Founder Dick Whittaker pioneered the development of low-moisture encapsulation carpet cleaning methods as a revolutionary alternative to the disruptive, inefficient restorative cleaning systems commonly used to clean commercial carpet. The development of this proprietary encapsulation carpet cleaning chemical is know known as CRYSTAL DRY®

Using the CRYSTAL DRY®  formula, Whittaker has created a suite of cleaning products to suit your each and every carpet cleaning need. From daily cleaning agents to interim maintenance and deep cleaning solutions, Whittaker has the right CRYSTAL DRY® formula for you.
