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 mould, 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 fibres, 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 mould 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 cleaning, and your carpet stays cleaner longer because there is no soapy residue left behind.
Our Hot Carbonating Extraction Process Makes Homes Healthier
Our core cleaning method, Hot Carbonating Extraction (HCE), was tested by a leading independent air quality laboratory in multiple homes. The lab found that Chem-Dry removes an average of 98.1% of common household allergens from carpets and upholstery. The common allergens tested were dog and cat dander and dust mite matter. This study shows how using our safe carpet cleaning approach can make your home a healthier, more comfortable space.
Not All Carpet Cleaning Services Are Healthy Carpet Cleaning Services
What makes Hot Carbonating Extraction different from other methods, like steam cleaning? Instead of soaking your carpets with gallons of water as a steam cleaner does, our HCE process employs millions of microscopic bubbles that reach deep into carpet fibres and explode the dirt within.
Particles of dirt and grime are then whisked away by our powerful extraction equipment. On average, we use about 80% less water than traditional steam cleaning. This also means that your carpets will dry in hours, not days, lessening the risk of mould and mildew growth due to prolonged wetness.
The best way to decide which carpet cleaning process you want to bring into your home is to look at the two methods side by side:
