About Chem-Dry > > General FAQs
Chem-Dry uses an all-natural, Green-Certified cleaning product called The Natural as our primary cleaner. The Natural, doesn’t contain any soaps or phosphates and is safe, non-toxic and hypo-allergenic. By contrast, most steam cleaners use soaps, detergents and harsh chemicals in their process.
Chem-Dry uses up to 80% less water than typical steam cleaning because its carbonated cleaner, The Natural, relies on millions of microscopic bubbles to release dirt and grime from the fibers of your carpet and raise it to the surface where it can easily be swept away. This low water, low pressure approach is healthier for your carpets, allows your carpets yo dry in only 1-2 hours and is also more environmentally friendly.
Traditional steam cleaning saturates your carpet with excessive amounts of water filled with soap and detergent. That leaves your carpets wet for 1or 2 days, which makes it a breeding ground for mold, mildew and bacteria. The soapy residue left behind attracts dirt and causes your carpets to get dirty much faster. But, Chem-Dry’s process is far different and superior. Millions of microscopic bubbles explode the dirt from deep in your carpet fibers, which is why we only need to use a fraction of the water that typical steam cleaning uses. After the carbonation releases and lifts the dirt out of the carpets, our high powered equipment extracts the dirt and moisture from the carpet.
