Chem-Dry VS Steam Cleaning

Experience the Chem-Dry Difference

A Difference You Can Feel

There are a lot of differences between professional carpet cleaning companies. There are many things to look for when choosing who to hire. At one end of the spectrum you have a company who provides a healthy and high-quality cleaning, and on the other end you find a company who doesn’t do much more than drench your carpets, leaving them soaked for days to come. With that in mind, let’s take a closer look at Chem-Dry’s unique hot carbonating extraction compared to the average steam cleaning service.

Omega Chem-Dry begins by applying its carbonated cleaner at a low pressure. This revolutionary cleaning solution uses carbonated bubbles to break up dirt and stains in the carpet. As the bubbles move, the unwanted particles are lifted to the surface of the carpet where they are removed by powerful suctions. This cleaning method uses the least amount of water possible, allowing your carpets to be completely dry in a matter of hours, not days.


Watch this short video to learn more about how our carbonated carpet cleaning process compares to typical steam cleaners.

And then there’s the other guys. Large amounts of water leave your carpets soaked for days. This high amount of moisture often leads to the growth of bacteria and mold. They use sticky cleaners that leave behind soapy residue which, ironically, attracts dirt and grime, leading to more stains! Although the carpets may appear clean at first, this typically does not last long.

When you are choosing a company to clean your carpets, you should consider efficiency, cleanliness, and eco-friendliness. Omega Chem-Dry wins the comparison in each of these categories here in Montgomery County. If you are looking for a cleaning that is healthy and as deep as it gets, Omega Chem-Dry is the right choice for you and your family.
