CHEM-DRY VS. STEAM CLEANING
A Difference You Can Actually Feel
Not all carpet cleaning companies produce the same results. There are several key factors that separate a high-quality carpet cleaning process that delivers a healthier cleaning for your carpets and home from one that drenches your carpets with gallons of water and harmful chemicals. These factors explain why Chem-Dry’s unique carpet cleaning system offers a deeper, faster drying, healthier carpet cleaning experience than typical steam cleaning services.
Chem-Dry starts by applying its exclusive carpet cleaner, The Natural, at a low pressure. This patented, non-toxic cleaning solution uses millions of tiny carbonation bubbles to releases dirt and grime from your carpets. As the bubbles invigorate carpet fibers, soil and stains are lifted to the surface and powerful suctions whisks them away. Short Stop Chem-Dry uses a minimal amount of moisture, so your carpets are fully dry and ready to enjoy in just 1 to 2 hours.
On the other hand, steam cleaners drench your carpets with truckloads of sudsy water and harsh cleaners before attempting to suck it all back out. Your carpets appear clean, but not for long. The layer of soapy residue left behind attracts stains and causes your carpets to get dirty much more quickly. Worst of all, steam cleaning can leave excessive amounts of moisture at the base of your carpets, requiring more time to dry and creating a breeding ground for bacteria and mold.
Chem-Dry offers a carpet and upholstery cleaning system that is more powerful, more efficient, and more eco-friendly than other carpet and steam cleaners in Wayne County and Macomb, MI. Overall, Short Stop Chem-Dry offers a healthy, thorough carpet cleaning experience for your home and family.
