Chem-Dry vs. Steam Cleaning

A Deeper Cleaning for a Healthier Home®

Protect your health and maintain clean air in your home with the help of carpet cleaning. Did you know that your carpets can actually act as natural air filters in your home, removing dust, allergens, and other particles from the air? However, over time, these particles build up and can be released back into your living space in higher concentrations. Unfortunately, many homeowners are unaware of this issue and suffer from the negative health effects without realizing there are simple solutions at hand.

Instead of struggling with renting or buying your own steam carpet cleaner and dealing with the hassles of operating it, consider hiring a professional carpet steam cleaner. Not only will they handle the cleaning process efficiently and effectively, but they also provide a better solution compared to trying to tackle it yourself. Don’t compromise your health and convenience – opt for the expertise of a professional carpet cleaner.

We have used Chem-Dry of Chippewa Valley for years and couldn’t be happier. They are personable, professional, and do a fantastic job every time. Chem-Dry is a national brand with a great reputation for their carpet cleaning system, but not all franchises are equal. Chem-Dry of Chippewa Valley is obviously committed to being a top-tier provider, as they are often the first in the Eau Claire market to adopt the latest equipment and techniques. (The tile and grout cleaning will also do wonders!) Don’t fall for the bait-and-switch carpet cleaning scams out there. These guys are the real deal!

Not all carpet cleaning services are equal

When searching for a quality carpet cleaner, keep in mind that not all carpet cleaning services are created equal. There are several key factors that separate a high quality carpet cleaning process that delivers a healthier cleaning for your carpets and home from one that drenches your carpets with gallons of water and harsh cleaners. These factors explain why our unique Hot Carbonating Extraction system at Chem-Dry offers a deeper, faster drying, healthier carpet cleaning experience than typical steam cleaning services.

When you steam clean carpet, you saturate it with an excessive amount of water filled with soaps and detergents. This results in carpets that remain wet for 1-2 days, which creates a breeding ground for mold, mildew and bacteria. Plus, the soapy residue left behind by carpet steam cleaners attracts dirt and causes your carpets to get dirty much faster.

At Chem-Dry of Chippewa Valley our process is different. Instead of soaking your carpets with water like a carpet steam cleaner, our process employs millions of microscopic bubbles to explode dirt from deep in your carpet fibers, so therefore we only need to use a fraction of the water that a typical steam carpet cleaner uses—almost 80% less in fact. We also use a natural carpet cleaner instead of a cleaner with heavy soaps and detergents. After the carbonation releases and lifts the dirt, our high powered equipment extracts the dirt and moisture from the carpet. While the drying time relies on several factors, such as humidity, airflow, and the carpet itself, the carpet will typically be dry within just an hour or two and ready for you to enjoy.

So while carpet steam cleaners use excessive amounts of water that often soaks through to the carpet backing and creates a breeding ground for mold and mildew, our low-moisture process doesn’t carry the same risk and offers a safer and more convenient carpet cleaning solution. Plus, your carpets dry in just a few hours, not 1-2 days like with typical steam carpet cleaning, and your carpet stays cleaner longer because there is no soapy residue left behind.

With Chem-Dry of Chippewa Valley, carpet cleaning doesn’t need to be a hassle…
