Learn why Chem-Dry carpet cleaning is more effective than steam cleaning

Compare the Difference

If you’ve ever smelled musty carpets, stepped on wet carpets, or waited several days for your carpets to dry, you may be fed up with steam cleaning. Luckily for homeowners in Anoka and Hennepin County, MN, CJ’s Chem-Dry is here to help! Our unique carpet cleaning method uses approximately 80% less water than traditional steam cleaning which means your carpets will dry in just a few hours.

We use a Hot Carbonating Extraction (HCE) cleaning method that covers your carpet with millions of microscopic carbonated bubbles (instead of tons of water). These tiny bubbles explode dirt from the fibers of your carpet and raise them to the surface. Then, they’re extracted by our powerful cleaning equipment.

Watch the short video above to learn more about how our process compares to steam cleaning!

“CJ’s Chem-Dry is the best carpet cleaner I’ve had in Minnesota, Jim spent 3 hours on our carpets, starting at 6pm. Very thorough, professional and very friendly. You can tell he takes pride in his family business and seek excellence in his work. I highly recommend them. I’ll certainly use them again. He also gave me great advice on what to do with spills. Thank you so much.”

Why Steam Cleaning is Less Effective

Steam cleaners in Anoka and Hennepin County use a fundamentally less effective method than the Chem-Dry Hot Carbonating Extraction process. Steam cleaning relies on excess water and soapy detergents to clean your carpets. This leaves your carpets soaking wet and leaves behind a sticky dirt-attracting residue.

While steam cleaning makes your carpets look clean for a short time period, the soap residue that gets left behind can cause them to get dirty quickly. So, you’ll have to call carpet cleaners again to get the same stains out! Avoid unnecessary cleanings, and call CJ’s Chem-Dry for a carpet cleaning that will last.
