CHEM-DRY VS STEAM CLEANINGWhat sets Chem-Dry apart from all of the other carpet cleaners in Virginia Beach?
Not All Carpet Cleaning Companies Are Created Equal
There are several key factors that separate a high-quality carpet cleaning process that delivers a healthier cleaning for your carpets and home from one that drenches your carpets with gallons of water and harsh cleaners. These factors explain why Southside Chem-Dry’s unique hot carbonating extraction system offers a deeper, faster drying, healthier carpet cleaning experience than typical steam cleaning services. This short video goes into more detail about what makes us unique from other steam cleaners in the VA Beach & Norfolk.
Southside Chem-Dry starts the carpet cleaning process by applying its exclusive carbonating cleaner at a low pressure (which means it doesn’t damage your carpet fibers). This patented, non-toxic cleaning solution uses millions of tiny carbonation bubbles to releases dirt and grime from your carpets. As our cleansing bubbles penetrate further into your carpet fibers, they act as a lifting force to separate the dirt and stains from your carpet fibers and help them rise to the surface where our suctioning equipment whisks them away. Southside Chem-Dry uses a minimal amount of moisture, so your carpets are fully dry and ready to enjoy in just 1 to 2 hours after we leave.
On the other hand, some steam cleaners drench your carpets with truckloads of sudsy water and harsh cleaners before attempting to suck it all back out. Your carpets appear clean, but typically not for long. The layer of soapy residue left behind attracts stains and causes your carpets to get dirty much more quickly. Worst of all, steam cleaning can leave excessive amounts of moisture at the base of your carpets, requiring more time to dry and creating a breeding ground for bacteria and mold.
