Chem-Dry vs. Steam Cleaning

Chem Dry vs. Steam Cleaning


Steam cleaning was the go-to solution offered by professional carpet cleaning surfaces in the past. As a matter of fact, majority of the cleaning service providers in West Palm and Boca Raton still use this cleaning method. However, with innovation taking over almost every aspect of our lives, it’s time to ditch these traditional cleaning practices and switch to something unique and highly effective.

HCE Technology


We at Chem-Dry make use of an innovative HCE (Hot Carbonating Extraction) cleaning technology which has been tested by independent laboratory and found to be highly effective. In this process we apply our proprietary cleaner “The Natural” on the carpet with the help of a spraying machine that works at a very low pressure for even distribution. This cleaner has millions of tiny bubbles that are naturally carbonated.

These tiny bubbles reach to the deepest of areas on the carpet and push the dirt and other contaminants to the upper surface from where they are easily swept with the help of our suction equipment. As very small amount of moisture is used in the process, there is no need for heavy drying and the total process is finished in about 1-2 hours.

The problem with traditional steam-cleaning technique is while they make your carpets look clean at first, in reality, large amount of soapy liquids and water are used for the cleaning process. A large amount of this sticky liquid is left on the carpets which works as a contaminants-magnet and before you know it, your carpet will be dirty again. And not to forget that as a lot of water is used in the steam cleaning process, the caret also needs a very long time to dry completely. On the other hand, with our HCE technique, you carpet will be ready to walk again in a couple of hours.

Needless to say, Chem-Dry offers a unique carpet cleaning solution that is not just effective, but quicker, reasonable and healthier as well.
