Chem-Dry vs. Steam Cleaning

Carpets serve as natural air filters in your home, trapping dust, allergens, and more from the air and keeping them from your lungs. Over time, though, those particles can accumulate, and eventually, they can be released back into your home in greater concentrations. Many homeowners may not be aware of the issue and suffer the negative health effects without realizing there are simple solutions available.

Some choose to hire a professional carpet steam cleaner to come to the home and clean the carpets for them. Others will either buy or rent their own steam carpet cleaner and struggle with the machine before finally throwing up their hands and calling a professional anyway. It’s certainly possible to steam clean carpet yourself, but it carries the same problems as hiring a professional carpet steam cleaner with the added hassle of wrestling with an unwieldy piece of equipment. There is a better professional solution available.
