CHEM-DRY VS. STEAM CLEANINGLearn what makes Chem-Dry carpet cleaning much more effective than steam cleaners
Chem-Dry VS. Steam Cleaners: Compare the Difference
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? If you’ve ever smelled musty, moist carpets or stepped on wet carpets, then the answer is obvious. Check out this short video that explains what makes our process superior to traditional steam cleaning.
Chem-Dry of Northern Nevada Carpet Cleaning
We boast a unique, effective carpet cleaning that dries quickly. 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.
Steam Carpet Cleaning
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. All that water and soap is then supposed to get sucked back up by the machine. However, that’s not usually the case. Instead, a lot of water and sticky residue is left behind to attract dirt and mold. Don’t get us wrong – steam cleaning does make carpets look clean for a short time, but the soap residue that gets left behind can cause them to get dirty quickly. Then you’ll have to call them again to get the same stains 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.
Overall, Chem-Dry of Northern Nevada offers a superior carpet cleaning experience.
