The Equipment

No matter what method you choose, always start with your equipment. For example, if you opt for steam cleaning, be aware that this involves pumping a lot of soapy water into your carpeting at very high-pressure levels. Unfortunately, this can end up being quite harsh on your carpets and may even drive some of the dirt further down into the fibers and backing. Chem-Dry’s Hot Carbonating Extraction (HCE) process uses significantly less water–80% less, in fact–while also cleaning more effectively. It uses low pressure, so it’s easier on your carpet, emphasizing extraction, which is pulling the moisture and soil out of your carpet.

The Products

Not only do the products you use for carpet cleaning affect how clean your carpets are after, but also how long the effects last. Most steam cleaners use detergents that leave sticky residues which actually attract dirt, making it appear as if the carpets still need to be cleaned. The chemicals used can cause wear and tear on your carpets and be potentially harmful to children or pets. Chem-Dry’s proprietary cleaner, our ECOLOGO Certified Cleaner is made from safe ingredients and doesn’t include any soaps or detergents, so there is no dirt-attracting residue left behind. This means your carpets will stay cleaner for longer. 

The Process

Most importantly, the method you choose to clean your carpet will result in a different final outcome. For example, Carpet steam cleaners push a lot of water into the carpet and it takes days to dry, promoting mold growth in the process. Not only that, but these cleaners also rely on soaps and chemicals to try and remove dirt. Although this may seem like an effective solution, oftentimes more dirt is left behind than before. Chem-Dry’s exclusive HCE process uses only one-fifth of the water compared to traditional steam cleaning methods. This allows your carpet to dry in a matter of hours, instead of days. The carbonation from our process reaches deep into the base layer of carpets and efficiently yet gently lifts dirt particles out from the fibers. Heat accelerates the carbonation reaction, allowing our specialized equipment to extract both the dirt and the water from your carpets and allowing you to resume regular activities in your home as quickly as possible.
