All carpet and upholstery cleaning services deliver the same result, right?
NO! When you’re looking for a quality carpet cleaning company, keep in mind that not all carpet cleaning services are created equal.
Several key factors separate a high-quality carpet cleaning process that delivers a healthier cleaning for your carpets and home from one that drenches your carpets with litres of water and harsh cleaners during steam cleaning.
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.
How steam carpet cleaning works
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.
What’s more, the soapy residue left behind attracts dirt and causes your carpets to get dirty much faster.
Chem-Dry’s carpet cleaning process is different
Instead of soaking your carpets with water like steam cleaners do, our process uses millions of microscopic bubbles to explode dirt from deep inside your carpet fibres.
That’s why we need to use only 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 an excessive amount 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 to attract dirt.
