Learn Why Chem-Dry Is The Best Choice For Carpet Cleaning

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.

We are Reno’s choice for drier, cleaner, and healthier carpet cleaning. Our commercial and residential cleaning services are unmatched in quality, just ask those who’ve tried Chem-Dry of Northern Nevada in the past. Your satisfaction is our highest priority with every service we provide.

Chem-Dry of Northern Nevada Carpet Cleaning

We boast a unique, effective carpet cleaning process 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 of Northern Nevada are dry in only 1-2 hours, not days.

Steam Carpet Cleaning

Other carpet cleaners in Reno have a very different approach to cleaning carpets. Steam cleaning machines work by releasing buckets full of hot, soapy water onto your carpet. All that water and soap are then supposed to get sucked back up by the machine. However, that’s not usually the case. Instead, a lot of water and the sticky residue is left behind to attract dirt. 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. 

Overall, Chem-Dry of Northern Nevada offers a superior carpet cleaning experience.
