Chem-Dry vs. Steam Cleaning

Chem-Dry of Franklin Lakes vs. Steam Cleaners in Wyckoff, NJ Area

You Compare the Difference

Chem-Dry of Franklin Lake's original Carbonating Cleaner is activated using a gentle low pressure spray machine. When the cleaning solution is activated it covers your carpet with millions of microscopic carbonated bubbles. These bubbles force dirt and grime to release from the fibers of your carpet and raise to the surface where the dirty particles can be easily extracted and swept away. Because we use carbonation, we are able to use 80% less water than steam cleaners throughout the Wyckoff, NJ area.  Carpets cleaned the Chem-Dry of Franklin Lakes way are completely dry in only 1 to 2 hours.

Typical steam cleaning companies in the Wyckoff, NJ area, douse your carpet in essentially buckets of very hot, soapy water. The water seeps down into the lower levels of the carpet, the carpet backing, and the sub-carpet levels of your flooring. They then attempt to suck it all back out. While this process does temporarily clean your carpets, it also leaves behind a thin film of sticky residue. This residue is from the soaps and detergents that they use, which collects dirt quicker like a magnet. In addition to the film, it's also virtually impossible to extract all of the water out of the base of your carpet. It just has to dry on it's own time. This excess of moisture causes the carpets to take longer to dry and provides the perfect environment for mold and bacteria to grow (warm, moist, dark areas).

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