CHEM-DRY VS. STEAM CLEANING

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

Compare the Difference

If you’ve experienced wet, musty carpets, you know how unpleasant it can be. Chem-Dry of Northern Utah provides unique and effective carbonated cleaning that dries quickly. We utilize a patented carbonated cleaner sprayed onto your carpets using low pressure. This process coats your carpet in millions of microscopic carbonated bubbles (as opposed to gallons of water).

Carpet cleaning can be a daunting and time-consuming, but our method is different. We use tiny bubbles that explode dirt and grime from the fibers of your carpet, raising them to the surface to be easily extracted and cleaned away. Not only does this require less water than traditional steam cleaners, but carpets cleaned by Chem-Dry will also be dry in just a few hours instead of days!

Watch this short video to learn more about our process:

Steam cleaners clean carpets by releasing buckets of hot, soapy water onto the carpet. Ideally, the machine would suck all the water and soap back up. Unfortunately, that’s not always possible, which can leave behind a lot of residues that actually attract dirt.

Though steam cleaning may initially make your carpets look clean, the soap residue left behind will cause them to dirty more rapidly. You’ll have to call the cleaners again soon to remove the same stains! And because extra water is used in this process, you’ll be waiting much longer for the carpets to dry.
