Chem-Dry Vs. Steam Cleaning


When it comes to keeping your home clean, you shouldn't have to compromise. Many people believe that carpet cleaners are all more-or-less the same. That's understandable, since all carpet cleaners share the same goal: get dirt and stains out of your carpets.

For consumers who care about the types of chemicals used in their home, however, the differences between carpet cleaning companies can be a significant one. This tends to be particularly important for people with children, pests, or sensitivities to chemicals and cleaning solutions.

Many consumers also don't consider social responsibility of cleaning products when choosing a carpet cleaner. Chem-Dry has worked hard for decades to create more than 50 green-certified products. That's because we believe in order to provide you with the healthiest home, we need cleaning solutions that use 100% non-toxic substances that don't harm the environment.

Another difference that is important for most people is dry time. Nobody likes to have damp carpets for days after they get their carpets cleaned. Being left with damp carpets also puts your carpets at risk of growing mold and mildew. Bad news for anyone with asthma or allergies. That's one reason why Chem-Dry uses 80% less water than traditional steam cleaning.

The bottom line is that when you don't want to compromise on creating a healthy environment in your home, Chem-Dry is your best bet.
