Chem-Dry vs. Steam Cleaning

Compare the Difference

Green Leaf Chem-Dry proudly offers Chem-Dry’s proprietary Carbonating Cleaner a safe, natural solution via a unique delivery system. Millions of microscopic effervescent carbonate bubbles are dispersed throughout your carpet by a low pressure spray machine. These bubbles act on the carpet fibers causing them to release dirt and grime which is then lifted to the surface to be gently extracted via our low pressure machines. This process utilizes 80% less moisture, allowing for your carpets to be dry in 1-2 hrs. You can swiftly return to a healthier, refreshed home or business with minimal interruption of your routine.

Our method contrasted to steam cleaning differs dramatically. Steam cleaning utilized loads of hot, soapy water delivered to the carpet in an effort to flush out dirt which is then sucked back up under high pressure. The result is a temporary clean that leaves behind an adhesive residue that quickly attracts back dirt necessitating another cleaning in a short period of time. This cycle can wear on the carpet fibers. In addition, the amount of moisture that remains at the base of the carpet adds considerable time before you carpets will be completely dry and ready for regular use. The excess moisture also acts as a growth medium for unhealthy, odorous mold and bacteria to grow.
