CHEM-DRY VS. STEAM CLEANINGLearn why Chem-Dry carpet cleaning is so much more effective than steam cleaning
Why Choose Chem-Dry?
Have you ever smelled or stepped on musty, moist carpets and questioned the effectiveness of steam carpet cleaning? With Elite Green Team Chem-Dry’s carpet cleaning in the greater Friendswood area, our unique Hot Carbonating Extraction (HCE) cleaning method uses 80% less water than steam cleaners and your carpets only take a few hours to dry!
Our HCE cleaning process works by releasing millions of microscopic carbonated bubbles (instead of tons of water) into your carpets. These tiny bubbles break dirt and grime particles apart and then carry them to the surface where they can be whisked away with our high-tech cleaning equipment.
Chem-Dry Uses 80% Less Water Than Steam Cleaning
Steam cleaners have a very different approach to carpet cleaning. The steam cleaning machines work by releasing buckets full of hot, soapy water onto your carpet. In a perfect world, all that water and soap would get sucked back up by the machine. However, this is rarely the case, and it often leaves behind a lot of dirty water and soapy residue that attracts dirt.
It’s important to note that steam cleaning does make your carpets look clean for a short period of time. Unfortunately, the soap residue that gets left behind can quickly cause your carpets to get dirty again. 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.
