Chem-Dry vs. Steam Cleaning

Chem-Dry of Tehachapi vs. Steam Cleaners in Tehachapi

While we at Chem-Dry of Tehachapi are considered carpet cleaners, we aren't your typical carpet cleaners. We use innovative tools, cleaning solvents, and methods that most carpet cleaners don't use. We use these because simply put, they clean better, and are more healthy for your home, and your family. Read on to understand a little bit more about what makes us so different from other carpet cleaning companies in Tehachapi, California.

Compare the Difference of Chem-Dry of Tehachapi

Chem-Dry of Tehachapi's exclusive Carbonated Cleaner is activated using our original low-pressure spray machine, covering your carpet with millions of infused microscopic carbonated bubbles. These carbonated bubbles force dirt and grime to break free from the fibers of your carpet and then the bubbles push those particles to the surface where they're easily extracted and cleaned up. Because we use carbonation we don't need to use a lot of water in our carpet cleaning process. In fact, we use 80% LESS water than steam cleaners throughout the Tehachapi. Your carpets will be dry in only 1 to 2 hours, instead of several hours or an entire day.

This process differs drastically from that of steam cleaners thorughout the Tehachapi, CA area. They simply douse your carpet in buckets of hot, soapy water, then attempt to suck it all back out. We say attempt, because if your carpets are still wet after 10 hours of them cleaning, then obviously they weren't able to get it all out. Granted, this process does temporarily clean your carpets, but it also leaves behind a layer of sticky residue which collects dirt quicker, in addition to leaving moisture at the base of your carpet. Something else to consider is that using so much water greatly increases the risk of getting mold and bacteria to grow in your carpet fibers, and in the carpet backing and lower levels.

Overall, we believe that Chem-Dry of Tehachapi offers a healthier, more thorough carpet cleaning experience.
