How does Chem-Dry compare to steam cleaning?
Traditional steam cleaning saturates your carpet with an excessive amount of water filled with soaps and detergents. So you’re left with wet carpets for 1-2 days, which creates a breeding ground for mold. Plus the soapy residue left behind attracts dirt and causes your carpets to get dirty much faster.
Jeff’s Chem-Dry’s process is very different. We employ millions of microscopic bubbles to explode dirt from deep in your carpet fibers, which is why we only need to use a fraction of the water that typical steam cleaners use. After the carbonation releases and lifts the dirt, our high-powered equipment extracts the dirt and moisture from the carpet.

Can other carpet cleaning methods actually hurt my carpets?
