Chem-Dry Carpet Cleaning vs. Steam Carpet Cleaners

Chem-Dry Carpet Cleaning vs. Steam Carpet Cleaners

A Difference You Can Feel

There are several differences between carpet cleaning methods by Chem-Dry vs. steam cleaning methods. Premier Chem-Dry starts by applying its exclusive Carbonating Cleaner at a low pressure. Our patented, non-toxic cleaning solution uses millions of tiny carbonation bubbles to release dirt and grime from your carpets. As the bubbles come into contact with the carpet fibers, soil and stains are lifted to the surface and then vacuumed away. Premier Chem-Dry uses a minimal amount of moisture, so your carpets are fully dry and ready to enjoy in just 1 to 2 hours.

On the other hand, steam cleaning methods drench your carpets with truckloads of sudsy water and harsh cleaners before attempting to suck it all back out. Your carpets are clean, but not for long. Why is this? The layer of soapy residue left behind attracts dirt causing your carpets to become dirty much more quickly. Worst of all, steam cleaning can leave excessive amounts of moisture at the base of your carpets. This method requires more time to allow your carpet to dry and can create a breeding ground for bacteria and mold.

Chem-Dry’s carpet cleaning system is simply healthier and more complete that steam cleaning. Overall, Chem-Dry offers a healthier, more thorough carpet cleaning experience.
