Chem-Dry vs. Steam Cleaning

Chem-Dry vs. Steam Cleaning

When searching for a quality carpet cleaning company, 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. We employ millions of microscopic bubbles to explode dirt from deep in your carpet fibers, which is why we only need to use a fraction of the water that typical steam cleaning uses. After the carbonation releases and lifts the dirt, our high powered equipment extracts the dirt and moisture from the carpet.

See the Difference for Yourself

The result is a deeper clean that’s also healthier because your carpet dries in 1-2 hours, not 1-2 days. And your carpet stays cleaner longer because there is no soapy residue left behind.
