Chem-Dry vs Steam Cleaning

When you are looking for a healthier, dryer carpet cleaning experience in Lexington, you can count on us. We clean for your health, and part of our promise to deliver a healthier cleaning process than our competitors. Here are some reasons why Bluegrass Chem-Dry is a cut above the rest.

Compare the Difference

Chem-Dry’s proprietary Carbonating Cleaner is applied using a low pressure spray machine, covering your carpet with millions of microscopic carbonated bubbles. The carbonation makes dirt and grime release from the fibers of your carpet and raise to the surface where it is easily extracted and swept 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 that of steam cleaners, which simply douse your carpet in buckets of hot, soapy water, then attempt to suck it all back out. While this process does temporarily clean your carpets, it also leaves behind a layer of sticky residue which collects dirt quicker, in addition to leaving moisture at the base of your carpet. This excess of moisture causes the carpets to take longer to dry and allows for mold and bacteria to grow.

Overall, Chem-Dry offers a healthier, more thorough carpet cleaning experience.
