Chem-Dry VS. Steam Cleaning


Chem-Dry Vs Steam Cleaning Infographic

You shouldn't have to compromise on the cleanliness of your home. Your home is where you and your family spend time together, eat, sleep, and make memories. It's important to have a healthy environment to spend all that time in. That's where professional carpet cleaning companies come in.

Many people believe that carpet cleaners are all more-or-less the same. That's understandable since all carpet cleaners share the same goal: get dirt and stains out of your carpets.

For consumers who care about the types of cleaning chemicals used in their home, however, the differences between different carpet cleaning companies can be significant. This tends to be particularly true for people with children, pets, or sensitivities to chemicals and cleaning solutions.

If you fall into one of these categories, then the type of cleaning chemicals and solutions used in your home is probably very important to you. At Chem-Dry, we believe in order to provide you with the healthiest home possible, we need cleaning solutions that use 100% non-toxic substances that don't harm the environment.

That's why our main cleaning solution, The Natural, only contains ingredients on the FDA's G.R.A.S. (Generally Recognized As Safe) list. The Natural is so safe, in fact, that you can drink it! (It doesn't taste very good, though)

Another difference that is important for most people is how long it takes their carpets to dry after they've been cleaned. Have you ever stepped on wet carpet in your socks? Not fun!

What's worse, though, is that leaving carpets damp for days puts your carpets at risk of growing mold and mildew. Bad news for anyone with asthma or allergies. That's one reason why Chem-Dry created a process that uses 80% less water than traditional steam cleaning. Using such little water allows your carpets to dry in as little as 1-2 hours, not 1-2 days.

So no stepping on your wet carpet with socks on and, more importantly, no growth of mold or mildew in your freshly cleaned carpets.

The bottom line is that when you don't want to compromise on creating a healthy environment in your home, Bridge City Chem-Dry is your best bet.
