CHEM-DRY VS. STEAM CLEANING

Learn why Chem-Dry carpet cleaning is so much more effective than steam cleaning

Why Choose Chem-Dry?

Are you tired of musty, damp carpets and wondering if steam cleaning is even effective? Elite Green Team Chem-Dry’s carpet cleaning in the greater Friendswood area uses Hot Carbonating Extraction (HCE). HCE utilizes 80% less water than other methods, resulting in clean, dry carpets within a few short hours! Stop worrying about ineffective steam cleaning – choose Elite Green Team Chem-Dry for optimal results.

Our HCE cleaning process works by releasing millions of microscopic carbonated bubbles (instead of tons of water) into your carpets. These tiny bubbles break the 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 use a very different approach to carpet cleaning. These machines work by releasing buckets full of hot, soapy water onto the flooring and then attempting to suck it all back up again. But this isn’t always successful, leaving behind grimy water and a sticky residue that actually attracts more dirt! As such, steam cleaning is not recommended for high-traffic areas or carpets with delicate fabric.

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.
