CHEM-DRY VS. STEAM CLEANINGLearn what makes Chem-Dry carpet cleaning much more effective than steam cleaners
Chem-Dry VS. Steam Cleaners
The biggest difference comes down to this: if you could choose between having your carpets clean and dry in 1-2 hours or clean and dry in 1-2 days, which would you choose? And what if we even said the quicker time was better for a number of reasons? It’s a given, right?
If you’ve ever smelled musty, moist carpets or stepped on wet carpets, then the answer is obvious. You need Chem-Dry of Santa Clarita Valley and our unique, effective carpet cleaning that dries faster than any other cleaning service. We use a patented Carbonating Cleaner, that is applied using a low-pressure spray machine, covering your carpet with millions of microscopic carbonated bubbles (instead of tons of water). These tiny bubbles explode dirt and grime from the fibers of your carpet and raise them to the surface where they’re easily extracted and cleaned away. With our carbonated cleaning method, we’re able to use far less water than most steam cleaners. That’s why carpets cleaned by Chem-Dry are dry in only 1-2 hours, not days.
Compare the Difference
Steam cleaners have a very different approach to cleaning carpets. Steam cleaning machines work by releasing buckets full of hot, soapy water on to your carpet. In a perfect world, all that water and soap would get sucked back up by the machine. However, that’s not usually the case, and this way of carpet cleaning can leave behind a whole lot of water and sticky residue within your carpet investment that attracts dirt and bacteria. Steam cleaning does make your carpets look clean for a short time period, but the soap residue that gets left behind can cause them to get dirty quickly. This method will have you calling the same steam cleaner to come again in hopes the same reappearing stains might finally come out. And with all that extra water, you’ll be waiting much longer for the carpets to dry, while in the meantime harmful mold and bacteria have a perfect climate to grow where you might not even notice it.
Overall, Chem-Dry of Santa Clarita Valley offers superior carpet cleaning in the Santa Clarita area.
