Chem-Dry vs Traditional Steam Cleaning

THURSDAY, MARCH 18, 2021

When you are looking to get your carpets cleaned, you are looking for a carpet cleaner to be efficient and effective. Not every carpet cleaner is made equal-you have steam cleaners, dry chemical cleaners, and a host of other options. At Antietam Chem-Dry, we offer you the best results because of our fantastic, unique process!

 

When you steam clean the carpet, you saturate it with an excessive amount of water filled with soaps and detergents. This results in carpets that remain wet for 1-2 days, which creates a breeding ground for mold, mildew, and bacteria. Plus, the soapy residue left behind by carpet steam cleaners attracts dirt. This causes your carpets to get dirty much faster.

At Antietam Chem-Dry our process is different. Instead of soaking your carpets with water like a carpet steam cleaner, our process employs millions of microscopic bubbles to explode dirt from deep in your carpet fibers. Because of our processes, we use a fraction of the water than a typical steam carpet cleaner uses—almost 80% less, in fact. We also use a natural carpet cleaner instead of a cleaner with heavy soaps and detergents. After the carbonation releases and lifts the dirt, our high-powered equipment extracts the carpet's dirt and moisture. While the drying time may differ from carpet to carpet, every carpet will typically be dry within just an hour or two and ready for you to enjoy.

So while carpet steam cleaners use excessive amounts of water that often soaks through to the carpet backing and creates a breeding ground for mold and mildew, our low-moisture process doesn't carry the same risk and offers a safer and more convenient carpet cleaning solution. Your carpets dry in 1-2 hours, not 1-2 days, like typical steam carpet cleaning. Plus, your carpet stays cleaner longer because there is no soapy residue left behind.
