Chem-Dry vs. Steam Cleaning

chem vs steam middleWhen searching for a quality carpet cleaner, keep in mind that not all carpet cleaning services are created equal. There are several key factors that separate a high quality carpet cleaning process that delivers a healthier cleaning for your carpets and home from one that drenches your carpets with gallons of water and harsh cleaners. These factors explain why Chem-Dry’s unique hot carbonating extraction system offers a deeper, faster drying, healthier carpet cleaning experience than typical steam cleaning services.

Traditional steam cleaning saturates your carpet with an excessive amount of water filled with soaps and detergents. So you’re left with wet carpets for 1-2 days, which creates a breeding ground for mold, mildew and bacteria. Plus the soapy residue left behind attracts dirt and causes your carpets to get dirty much faster.

Chem-Dry’s process is different. Instead of soaking your carpets with water, our process employs millions of microscopic bubbles to explode dirt from deep in your carpet fibers, so therefore we only need to use a fraction of the water that typical steam cleaning uses, almost 80% less in fact. After the carbonation releases and lifts the dirt, our high powered equipment extracts the dirt and moisture from the carpet.

So while steam cleaners use excessive amounts of water that often soaks through to the carpet backing and creates a breeding ground for mold and mildew, Chem-Dry’s low-moisture process doesn’t carry the same risk and offers a safer and more conventient carpet cleaning solution. Plus, your carpets dry in just a few hours, not 1-2 days like with typical steam cleaning, and your carpet stays cleaner longer because there is no soapy residue left behind.

 

The Power Of Carbonation

How Chem-Dry worksOne of the reasons people choose Chem-Dry over other services is for the peace of mind of knowing we offer a healthier, safer carpet cleaning experience. Chem-Dry utilizes the natural cleaning power of carbonation to release and lift dirt and grime from deep within your carpets so they can be whisked away with our powerful extraction equipment for a clean that lasts.

Similar to the way club soda removes stains from a shirt, we’ve evolved and adapted the use of carbonation into a superior carpet and upholstery cleaning process. Chem-Dry uses the power of carbonating solutions to lift the dirt, dust and other allergens to the surface where they can be easily removed without using the excessive amounts of water other methods like steam cleaning use. With Chem-Dry, carpets dry faster, reducing the risk of harmful bacteria growing underneath your carpet.

 

Carbonation Leads to a Longer Lasting Clean

Carbonation isn’t just for fizzy drinks anymore. Chem-Dry’s process uses millions of tiny bubbles to penetrate the carpet fibers, dissolve dirt and stains quickly, and act as tiny propellants that actually lift dirt to the surface for extraction. Because the bubbles do most of the work for us, Chem-Dry does not need to use heavy amounts of water or soapy chemicals that other cleaners rely on to get your carpets clean. When soapy residues are left behind they attract dirt like a magnet, causing your carpet to get dirty again faster and requiring more frequent professional cleanings.
