Chem-Dry’s patented Carbonating Carpet Cleaner is applied using a low pressure spray, covering your carpet with millions of microscopic carbonated bubbles. The active carbonation makes dirt and grime release from the fibres of your carpet and raise to the surface where it is easily extracted away. Due to the minimal amount of moisture used, carpets cleaned the Chem-Dry way are dry in only 1 to 2 hours.
This process differs drastically from some other cleaning methods, which use a lot of high pressure water with a detergent to clean carpets. When performed by untrained operators or when the “do-it-yourself” hire machines from the supermarkets are used, it can saturate the carpet and leave behind wet underlay and floorboards. Stagnant water breeds bacteria such as mould and other micro-organisums.
While this process does temporarily clean your carpets, it also leaves behind a layer of sticky residue which collects dirt quicker causing spots to reappear, and it also leaves moisture at the base of your carpet. This excess moisture causes the carpets to take longer to dry allowing time for mould and bacteria to breed. With this method, customers have mentioned an associated ‘wet dog’ smell, which is simply the off-gassing of unhealthy bacteria starting to grow in your carpet fibres and underlay.
Simply put, Chem-Dry is drier, cleaner and healthier because we offer an improved, more thorough carpet cleaning experience. Once you’ve tried our method you will be so blown away with the results, the quick drying times and the long-lasting clean, that you will never use any other process again.
