Technology is constantly evolving; whether that’s in the form of the newest steam cleaner or the most recent release from Apple. You’ve probably experienced just how fast technology moves when you finally splurged and bought the latest iPhone just to have the next model be released soon after.

Truthfully, companies and consumers worldwide are figuring out more efficient ways of getting things done and the cost that comes with it. This is the case for many products and services – including carpet cleaning.

Our Method

Chem-Dry has developed a proprietary carpet cleaning method that is unmatched by our competitors. Plus, we use a green certified cleaning solution and 80% less water – making it more environmentally friendly! We’re confident in that claim, and that’s why we’re sharing just how our hot carbonating extraction carpet cleaning in Greensboro works.

Carpet Cleaning vs. Steam Cleaning

If you’ve ever used club soda to remove a stain from your clothes, you’ve seen just how effective carbonation is. The secret is the millions of tiny carbonated bubbles that powerfully, yet gently lift stains from the fibers.

We utilize that same method, but on your carpet. Here’s how it compares to steam cleaning:




Our carpet cleaner, The Natural®, contains millions of microscopic carbonated bubbles. This solution penetrates deep into your carpet fibers and breaks up stains, dirt, odors and even dust. The carbonated bubbles lift these unwanted stains and odors from deep within your carpet to the surface where they are easily whisked away. Since we use green certified cleaning solution, you can rest easy knowing your family and pets are safe around freshly cleaned carpet and upholstery. With our process, you get cleaner, drier and healthier carpet.

Steam Cleaners

Traditional steam cleaners work by dumping excessive water into your carpet and then extracting it. The trouble with this is that its difficult to lift all of the water back out, leaving you with soggy carpets for a couple of days (and in the meantime, attracting dirt and dust). The other worry is that some of the water deep within your padding creates a perfect environment for mold and mildew to grow and flourish, leaving you with more problems than stains and dirty carpet.
