Steam cleaning has pretty much always been the go-to when deep cleaning your carpets. Usually this means you either rent a steam machine or hire someone to do it for you. The problem is that steam cleaning can cause massive problems later on. Fortunately, steam cleaning isn’t the only option anymore; there is a newer, better way!


The Best Way to Approach Carpet Cleaning

You’ll want to find a way to clean your carpets with the least amount of soap and water as possible. Avoid letting the carpets become so wet that they start to grow mildew or mold and be aware that soap residue will just attract more dirt and stains.

What’s the best option then? There is a new, revolutionary process that cleans your carpets naturally. Chem-Dry’s process – called The Power of Carbonation – is a safer and more trustworthy method when compared to steam cleaning. This process results in healthier carpets.

The Power of Carbonation works so well because it sends in millions of tiny carbonated bubbles to gather up dirt, dust, and other allergens from deep within the carpet fibers and lift those particles to the surface to be swept away with vacuuming power. The most important part? Because the bubbles do a lot of the heavy-lifting, significantly less water and soap can be used.

Your carpets will dry faster and you’ll decrease the chance of mildew and bacteria growth!

We call our cleaning solution The Natural®, because it is exactly what it sounds like. It’s free of harsh chemicals and it’s safe for your family and pets.


Backed By Facts

A third-party Home Health Study showed that Chem-Dry’s carpet cleaning process removes 98% of allergens from carpet and upholstery and 89% of all airborne bacteria. Read those number again. Want a cleaner home? Chem-Dry is how you get it.
