Chem-Dry vs. Steam Cleaning

Chem-Dry vs. Steam Cleaning

See the Difference for Yourself

The Chem-Dry cleaning method is different from other carpet cleaners in Briarcliff Manor. Chem-Dry's proprietary Carbonating Cleaner is applied using a low pressure spray machine, covering your carpet with millions of microscopic carbonated bubbles. The bubbles literally explode the dirt and grime from the upholstery or carpet fibers and raise to the top where it is more easily extracted by our powerful equipment. Due to the minimal amount of moisture used, carpets cleaned the Chem-Dry way are dry in only 1 to 2 hours. We also don't leave your carpets soggy, so there is no time for mold or mildew to grow.

Other Cleaning Companies

This process differs drastically from that of steam and other carpet cleaners, which simply douse your carpet in buckets of hot, soapy water, then attempt to suck it all back out. While this process does temporarily clean your carpets, it also leaves behind a layer of sticky residue which collects dirt quicker, in addition to leaving moisture at the base of your carpet. All the water that doesn't get sucked up takes a long time to dry. Leaving your carpets soggy and giving more time for mold and mildew to begin to grow.

Overall, Chem-Dry offers a healthier, more thorough carpet cleaning experience. Below are just a few of the differences that makes Chem-Dry stand out and above the competitors.
