Carpet Cleaning Questions Answered: What is Hot Carbonating Extraction?
June 02, 2021
If you’ve always thought steam cleaning was the only carpet cleaning method available to you, you’ll be thrilled to hear that Chem-Dry has created an innovative process called Hot Carbonating Extraction.
Our proprietary process does away with all the downsides of steam cleaning including
- Using gallons of water to clean
- Leaving the carpet backing soggy for days
- Leaving soapy, dirt-attracting residue on carpet fibers
The result is a revolutionary approach to carpet cleaning that leaves your carpets drier, cleaner, and healthier while also increasing their longevity and improving their appearance.
Understanding How Hot Carbonating Extraction Works
If you’ve ever used club soda to remove stains from your clothing, you’ve seen the power of carbonation in action. At Chem-Dry, we’ve taken that power to a new level with Hot Carbonating Extraction or HCE.
During this process, millions of tiny bubbles penetrate and dissolve dirt and stains lingering on carpet fibers, propelling leftover dirt and oils to the surface. These contaminants can then be easily extracted from the carpet without having to flood it with water.
The magic of carbonation also eliminates the need for soapy formulas with harsh-chemicals to be used to return a carpet to its original clean state. Instead, we rely on a safe, non-toxic solution called The Natural®.
This product works harder than many other chemical-based cleaning solutions on the market, but it is formulated with eco-friendly ingredients. Unlike products used in traditional steam cleaning, it does not leave behind residual detergents that could negatively affect the integrity of your carpet’s fibers.
Benefits of Carpet Cleaning with Hot Carbonating Extraction
At Chem-Dry, we know your carpets are a vital part of your home. You shouldn’t have to wait days to enjoy them after cleaning, nor should there ever be a question as to how clean they really are.
Our carpet cleaning process was built with these needs in mind. We’re proud to have designed an innovative solution that quickly and effectively gets rid of the dirt and grime that has settled deep in your carpet.
You’ll discover a multitude of benefits when you choose to take advantage of the proprietary HCE process utilized by our carpet cleaning professionals. Here are just a few you can look forward to.
As HCE utilizes only a fraction of the water required by traditional steam cleaning, the drying process is much faster. In fact, your carpet may be dry in only an hour or two.
This isn’t just beneficial because it returns your home to normal sooner, it’s also a huge plus for your carpet. When the fibers and backing of carpet are soaked with water for any significant amount of time, the area becomes a prime location for the development of harmful mold and mildew. This can significantly reduce your carpet’s lifespan and even potentially cause health problems for the most vulnerable residents of your home.
When it comes to the effectiveness of our carpet cleaning process, we don’t expect you to take our word for it. Instead, we’ll point you to the results of a study conducted by an independent laboratory.
This study confirmed that process eliminates 98% of non-living allergens* from carpets and upholstery. With statistics like these, it’s easy to have confidence you’re doing a good thing for your home when you choose Chem-Dry.
A Longer-Lasting Clean
When soap or detergent is used on your carpet, it can be difficult to remove the residual film these products leave behind. While they may help make your carpet cleaner in the short term, they also contribute to the return of dirt and grime by acting as a magnet for contaminating particles. As a result, you may notice you need to clean your carpet more frequently when you utilize traditional steam cleaning processes.
In contrast, Chem-Dry focuses on extending the life and beauty of your carpet through the Hot Carbonating Extraction process. We even offer additional protectants that can be applied to your carpet during cleaning to further repel stains and keep your carpet looking its best for longer.
