The Chem-Dry Carpet Cleaning Difference

Van’s Chem-Dry uses an unmatched technique to clean your carpets better than anyone else. While most carpet cleaners employ steam cleaning processes with their services, Van’s Chem-Dry uses a powerful Hot Carbonation Extraction solution. Comprising of millions of tiny carbonated bubbles, it enters deep within your carpet to the backing of your carpet fibers to lift all dirt and grime to the surface. Our powerful equipment then gently, yet powerfully, extracts the particles and carbonation solution from your carpet. You get a carpet that’s drier, cleaner, and healthier.

In comparison, most steam cleaning machines pump vast amounts of hot, soapy water into your carpets in an attempt to loosen and eventually extract dirt and grime. Often times this can cause the dirt to be pushed back even further making it difficult to extract. While it may appear that your carpets are clean after a steam carpet cleaning, they will quickly become dirty once more from the trapped dirt and excess water that seeped to the carpet padding. In fact, the added moisture often causes the growing and festering of bacteria and mold and the leftover soap from traditional steam cleaning solutions actually attracts dirt and grime. Your carpets are unable to dry for excessively long periods of time and require frequent cleaning. Van’s Chem-Dry uses about 80 percent less water in its carpet cleaning process to give you carpets that are completely dry in just a few hours.
