Whats the best carpet cleanerWe know that there are a lot of options to choose from when you need your carpets cleaned. The most common type of carpet cleaning and the one you’re probably most familiar with is steam cleaning. Why should you choose Chem-Dry’s carpet cleaning process over the steam cleaning process that you’re familiar with?

For one, we’ve spent over 40 years researching and developing our proprietary carpet cleaning process to make sure that we get you the best clean possible. From beginning to end, Chem-Dry focuses on giving you a clean and healthy home. Our mission and our passion is providing a safe and healthy home environment for you and your family.

Here are just a few of the ways we’re different:

The Equipment

One of the most important parts of the cleaning process is the equipment you use. After all, you can’t do a good job with bad equipment. 

Traditional steam cleaning uses equipment that pumps a high volume of soapy water into your carpets at extremely high pressures. They then suck as much moisture as they can back up, but it’s much easier to soak something than to dry it. This equipment often leaves behind a lot of excess water. 

Chem-Dry’s HCE process uses significantly less water–80% less, in fact–while also cleaning more effectively. This is because we use carbonated water, which is more effective so we are able to use less. Instead of blasting your carpet with water, we use low pressure, so it’s easier on your carpet. At the end of the process, we extract the water and dirt and grime from your carpets. While not perfectly dry, we leave your carpets much drier. 

The Products

Of course, the products and cleaning solutions used on your carpets affect how clean they are after a cleaning, but did you know that they also affect how long your carpets will stay clean?

Most steam cleaners use detergents that are full of chemicals. These leave behind a soapy residue which can become sticky. A little while after cleaning, dirt will start to build up on the sticky residue, leaving your carpets looking dingy all over again. Plus, the cleaning chemicals can be harmful to pets and children, the members of your family that spend the most time on the floor. 

Chem-Dry’s proprietary cleaner, The Natural®, is made from natural ingredients copied from Mother Nature herself. It doesn’t include any soaps or detergents, so there is no dirt-attracting residue left behind. Your carpets are cleaner right after cleaning and stay cleaner for longer after.  Because The Natural® is also non-toxic, its safe for kids and pets to be around after a cleaning.

The People

Because carpet cleaners work inside your home, it’s important that they are trustworthy and friendly.

A steam cleaning machine can be operated by almost anyone. Different steam cleaning companies of course have different employee standards, and so the level of service you can expect varies widely from business to business

At Chem-Dry, our technicians are chosen for not only their ability to get carpet clean, but also their work ethic and customer service skills. We pride ourself on having techs that are friendly and enjoyable to have in your home. They work hard to make sure that you are satisfied with your results, and leave you with a smile on your face.

The Process

The cleaning process that is used affects how clean your carpets are and healthy they are at the end of the cleaning process. 

The typical steam cleaning process pushes a large amount of water into your carpet, which can have the unintended effect of pushing dirt deeper into your carpets. Excessive water can also soak through to the carpet backing, which can allow mold and mildew to grow under your carpets.

The carbonation from Chem-Dry’s process penetrates to the base of the carpets and releases the dirt particles from the carpet fibers, effectively cleaning from the bottom up. This leaves your carpets cleaner. And because we use less water, there is much less of a chance of mold growing in your carpets. 


All-in-all, there are a lot of good reasons to choose a cleaner like Chem-Dry Four Seasons in Everett for your carpet cleaning needs.
