Understanding How Hot Carbonating Extraction Works

If you’ve ever used club soda to remove stains from your clothing, you know what we’re talking about. At Southside Chem-Dry, we’ve taken that power to a new level with Hot Carbonating Extraction or, HCE. 

During this process, millions of tiny bubbles penetrate your carpet to dissolve dirt and stains lingering on carpet fibers. This brings leftover dirt and oils to the surface for us to extract from the carpet without floods of water.

The magic of carbonation also eliminates the need for soapy formulas with harsh chemicals. Instead, we rely on a safe, non-toxic solution called The Natural®. 


Benefits of Carpet Cleaning with Hot Carbonating Extraction

At Southside Chem-Dry, we know your carpets are a vital part of your home. You shouldn’t have to wait days to enjoy them after cleaning, nor should you have their cleanliness.

You discover many benefits when you choose to take advantage of the proprietary HCE process utilized by our professionals. Here are just a few you can look forward to:

– Quick-Drying Results

When the fibers and backing of carpet are soaked with water for a significant amount of time, the area becomes a prime location for the development of harmful mold and mildew. This can significantly reduce your carpet’s lifespan and even potentially cause health problems for the most vulnerable residents of your home.

As HCE utilizes only a fraction of the water required by traditional steam cleaning, the drying process is much faster. In fact, your carpet may be dry in only an hour or two. Decreasing the chances for mold and mildew growth, and thus, increasing the health of your home

– A Longer-Lasting Clean

When you use soap or detergent on your carpet, it can be difficult to remove the residual film these products leave behind. While they may help make your carpet cleaner in the short term, they also contribute to the return of dirt and grime by acting as a magnet for contaminating particles. As a result, you may notice you need to clean your carpet more frequently when you utilize traditional steam cleaning processes.

In contrast, Southside Chem-Dry focuses on extending the life and beauty of your carpet through the Hot Carbonating Extraction process. We even offer additional protectants that can be applied to your carpet during cleaning to further repel stains and keep your carpet looking its best for longer.
