Chem-Dry vs Steam Cleaning

Carpets serve as natural air filters in your home, trapping dust, allergens, and germs from the air and keeping them from your lungs. Over time, though, those particles can accumulate, and eventually, they can be released back into your home in greater concentrations. Many homeowners may not be aware of the issue and suffer the negative health effects without realizing there are simple solutions available.

Some choose to hire a professional carpet steam cleaner to come to the home and clean the carpets for them. Others will either buy or rent their own steam carpet cleaner and struggle with the machine before finally throwing up their hands and calling a professional anyway. It’s certainly possible to steam clean carpet yourself, but it carries the same problems as hiring a professional carpet steam cleaner with the added hassle of wrestling with an unwieldy piece of equipment. There is a better professional solution available.

When 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.

When you steam clean carpet, you saturate it with an excessive amount of water filled with soaps and detergents. This results in carpets that remain wet for 1-2 days, which creates a breeding ground for mold, mildew and bacteria. Plus the soapy residue left behind by carpet steam cleaners attracts dirt and causes your carpets to get dirty much faster.

Chem-Dry’s process is different. Instead of soaking your carpets with water like a carpet steam cleaner, 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 a typical steam carpet cleaner uses—almost 80% less in fact. We also use a natural carpet cleaner instead of a cleaner with heavy soaps and detergents. After the carbonation releases and lifts the dirt, our high powered equipment extracts the dirt and moisture from the carpet. While the drying time relies on several factors, such as humidity, airflow, and the carpet itself, the carpet will typically be dry within just an hour or two and ready for you to enjoy.

So while carpet 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 convenient carpet cleaning solution. Plus, your carpets dry in just a few hours, not 1-2 days like with typical steam carpet cleaning, and your carpet stays cleaner longer because there is no soapy residue left behind.

Compare the Difference

Chem-Dry's proprietary Carbonating Cleaner is applied using a low pressure spray machine, covering your carpet with millions of microscopic carbonated bubbles. The carbonation makes dirt and grime release from the fibers of your carpet and raise to the surface where it is easily extracted and swept away. Due to the minimal amount of moisture used, carpets cleaned the Chem-Dry way are dry in only 1 to 2 hours.

This process differs drastically from that of steam cleaners, which simply douse your carpet in buckets of hot, soapy water, then attempt to suck it all back out. While this process does temporarily clean your carpets, it also leaves behind a layer of sticky residue which collects dirt quicker, in addition to leaving moisture at the base of your carpet. This excess of moisture causes the carpets to take longer to dry and allows for mold and bacteria to grow.

Overall, Chem-Dry offers a healthier, more thorough carpet cleaning experience.
