Delta Chem-Dry

Just like using club soda on a stain, we use a patented carbonated cleaning solution, The Natural®, to deep clean your carpets. This process covers your carpets with millions of microscopic bubbles that explode dirt and grime from deep within your carpets. Once these particles are at the surface, they are easily whisked away by our powerful extraction equipment. By utilizing the natural power of carbonation, we are able to use approximately 80% less water than steam cleaners. That’s why carpets cleaned by Chem-Dry are completely dry in just 1-2 hours.

Steam Machines

Steam cleaners’ approach to carpet cleaning is very different. Steam cleaning machines douse your carpets with buckets of hot, soapy water, and then attempt to suck it all back out. While this process does temporarily clean your carpets (or at least make them look clean), it also leaves behind a fine layer of sticky, soap residue which actually collects dirt quicker. Your carpets get dirtier faster so you need to call them in again to get the same stains out! Plus all that excess moisture causes your carpets to dry slower and can allow for mold and mildew growth.

Overall, Delta Chem-Dry offers a healthier, more thorough carpet cleaning in San Fernando than the competitors.
