Chem-Dry uses less water for faster dry times.
Carpets cleaned the Chem-Dry way are left sparkling clean and dry in 1 to 2 hours, not the 1-2 days you may have experienced with other carpet cleaning methods like steam cleaning. Our secret is that we use the power of effervescent, carbonating cleaning solutions that are so effective that we only need to use a small amount of moisture to achieve miraculous clean carpets. In fact, we only need to use approximately one-ﬁfth to one-tenth of the moisture that steam cleaners use. And if that isn’t enough, the ingredients used in our cleaner are copied from Mother Nature herself. We don’t need soaps, detergents, or harsh chemicals to accomplish our great cleaning results because we’ve got the power of crystal clear carbonating bubbles.
And drier carpets mean healthier homes. Steam cleaning pours water on your carpets, leaving behind dirty water below the surface, which wicks the dirt to the surface while it dries.
Chem-Dry ensures a deep down clean.
If you have ever used club soda to remove a stain from a shirt, you know how the carbonating principle works. We merely perfected it for carpet. The awesome cleaning power of carbonating solutions creates a powerful reaction that deep cleans carpets in a safe and gentle way...and because the bubbles do the work for us, Chem-Dry does not need to use the gallons of soapy cleaning chemicals that steam cleaners or do-it-yourself machines rely on so much. Soapy residues attract dirt like a magnet, causing your carpet to get dirty again faster than ever.
Chem-Dry means a more healthy home.
Many people assume that the best way to clean is to “soak” their carpets and “suck” the water back out, the method commonly known as steam cleaning. But this soggy approach may have some serious drawbacks. Steam carpet cleaning can dump buckets of water on your carpet and pad. When left behind, this water can create a breeding ground for mold and bacteria in just hours. It can also leave behind chemicals and soapy, dirt-attracting residue. That is why Chem-Dry’s low moisture process is healthier.
Because steam carpet cleaners use gallons of water and high pressure, they drive dirt and moisture down into your carpet’s backing and pad. The result, long dry times which can create a breeding ground for mold and bacteria and reappearing spots caused by the dirt "wicking" up the carpet fibers as the carpet dries.
