Chem-Dry vs. Steam Cleaning

Learn how Chem-Dry of Nona carpet cleaning is different from the typical steam cleaner.

Not all carpet cleaning services are equal

If you’ve ever smelled musty, moist carpets, stepped on wet carpets, or waited several days for your carpets to dry, you may have questioned steam cleaning methods. With our carpet cleaning St. Cloud, Kissimmee, and surrounding Orlando, FL areas, our unique, effective carpet cleaning uses 80% less water than steam cleaners.

We use Chem-Dry’s unique Hot Carbonated Extraction (HCE) cleaning method that covers your carpet with millions of microscopic carbonated bubbles (instead of tons of water). These tiny bubbles explode dirt and grime from the fibers of your carpet and raise them to the surface. Then, they’re easily extracted and cleaned away using our high-tech cleaning equipment.

Why Steam Cleaning is Less Effective

Steam cleaners have a different, less effective approach to cleaning carpets in comparison to Chem-Dry’s cleaning process. Steam cleaning machines work by releasing buckets full of hot, soapy water on your carpet. In a perfect world, all that water and soap would get sucked back up by the machine. However, this is not the case! This method of carpet cleaning leaves behind a sticky residue that attracts dirt. While steam cleaning makes your carpets look clean for a short time period, the soap residue that gets left behind can cause them to get dirty quickly again.
