Carpet is now the number one floor covering in most commercial settings. The advent of cubicles and workstations means that fabric can cover many businesses from floor to ceiling. It’s a big investment that needs to be protected.
Chem-Dry’s Hot Carbonating Extraction cleaning method uses the natural cleaning power of carbonation to lift dirt and grime to the surface of the carpet where it can be easily extracted.
Our process uses 80% less water than typical steam cleaning, so your carpet will dry in 1-2 hours instead of 1-2 days and you won’t have the risk of mold and mildew growth that often comes with using an excessive amount of water.
Commercial carpets cleaned by Chem-Dry stay cleaner longer and promote a healthier working and business environment for your customers and employees. So how is it that Chem-Dry came to be leaders in industrial carpet cleaning? Our secret is the patented Chem-Dry Carbonating Cleaner that uses the power of carbonation to apply millions of microscopic bubbles to your carpet that actually lifts stains away from your carpet and then, sweeps them away forever. Your carpets will instantly be at their freshest and cleanest state.
There are several key methods utilized for commercial carpet cleaning:
- Encapsulation cleaning
- Hot water extraction (also known as steam cleaning)
The most effective commercial carpet cleaning is achieved by using a system that encompasses all 5 features of the W.A.T.C.H. acronym. Water. Agitation. Time. Chemical. Heat.
Shampooing is chosen due to its rotary agitation and fast drying properties. Unfortunately, there is an insufficient amount of water to effectively clean and then rinse the loosened soil and cleaning chemical from the carpet. This results in only average cleaning results and rapid re-soiling.
Encapsulation cleaning is also chosen for its fast drying properties. A crystallizing polymer is applied to the carpet and attaches itself to the soil. The polymer is allowed to dry and then vacuumed from the carpet, bringing with it the attached soil. While this process may be recommended for “in-between” cleanings; it doesn’t take the place of a deep cleaning using agitation and heat to loosen the soil, and water to rinse the soil from the carpet. In addition to these problems, it is also essential that the carpet be vacuumed frequently to avoid build up of the polymer.
Hot water extraction aka steam cleaning uses vast quantities of water to flush soil from the carpet. The excess amount of water used, goes straight through the backing to the pad, leaving the carpet extremely wet and creating a breeding ground for mold and mildew. Not only does this lead to lengthy and inconvenient dry times but it also traps soapy chemicals that attract dirt like a magnet; ultimately making your carpets dirtier than ever, a disaster in high traffic spaces.
Only Chem-Dry uses the right combination of water, agitation, time, chemical and heat (W.A.T.C.H.) for the deepest, most thorough cleaning. Our rotating power head scrubs the carpet for the deepest clean.
Our hot carbonated extraction process uses less water, with faster dry times and better results than steam cleaning. Our Green Certified cleaning solutions leave behind no soaps or shampoos, so carpets stay cleaner longer than carpets cleaned with shampoo or encapsulation.
