Learn why Chem-Dry carpet cleaning in Logan, UT is more effective than steam carpet cleaning

Compare the Difference: Chem-Dry vs Carpet Steamers

If you’ve had the misfortune of dealing with wet, musty carpets, you understand that it can be an awful experience. Chem-Dry of Northern Utah offers a one-of-a-kind and successful carbonated cleaning solution that dries much faster than traditional methods. Your carpets will be dry in 1-2 hours instead of steam cleaning methods which take 1-2 days. We use our patented low-pressure spray to coat your carpets in millions of microscopic carbonated bubbles – instead of gallons and gallons of water!

Carpet cleaning can be strenuous and time-consuming, but not with our innovative solution. Our method utilizes tiny carbonation bubbles that blast dirt and grime from the fibers of your carpet, lifting them to the surface where they can easily be removed. This technique uses exponentially less water than traditional steam cleaners yet results in carpets drying within a few hours instead of days! Make Chem-Dry your trusted partner for all your carpet cleaning needs.

Steam cleaners take buckets of hot, soapy water and release it onto your carpets to try to clean them. The ideal outcome would be for the machine to suck all that water back up again – however, this doesn’t always happen, leaving behind residues that can actually attract more dirt from outside sources.

Steam cleaning may appear to be an easy solution, but it can actually make carpets dirtier in the long run. The soap residue left behind on your carpets attracts more dust and grime – meaning you’ll need to call the cleaners again sooner than expected! Furthermore, steam cleaning involves excess water which makes drying time much longer compared to other methods of carpet cleaning.
