CHEM-DRY VS. STEAM CLEANING
Compare the Difference
Here are your options:
- Carpets clean & dry in 1-2 hours OR
- Carpets clean & dry in 1-2 days
Which do you choose? To us, it seems obvious…
If you’ve ever smelled musty, moist carpets or stepped on wet carpets, then you’ll know you want carpets dried quickly! That is why we offer unique, effective carpet cleaning that dries fast.
We use a patented Carbonating Cleaner that is applied using a low pressure spray machine, covering your carpet with millions of microscopic carbonated bubbles. These tiny bubbles explode dirt and grime from the fibers of your carpet and then raise them to the surface where it is easily extracted and swept away. With this method, we are able to use far less moisture than most steam cleaners. That’s why carpets cleaned the Chem-Dry way are dry in only 1-2 hours, not days.
Steam cleaners approach carpet cleaning very differently. Steam cleaning machine douse your carpets with buckets of hot, soapy water, 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 the carpets to take longer to dry and can allowsfor harmful mold and bacteria to grow.
Overall, Delta Chem-Dry offers a healthier, more thorough carpet cleaning in Los Angeles than the competitors.
