Chem-Dry vs. Steam Cleaning

Academy Chem-Dry vs. Steam Cleaners in Annapolis, MD

You Compare the Difference

Academy Chem-Dry uses an exclusive carbonated cleaned called The Natural®. The Natural® is applied to your carpet using a low-pressure spray machine. We then activate the carbonation with our power head machine, covering your carpet with millions of microscopic carbonated cleaning bubbles. The power of this carbonation forces dirt and grime to release from the within each individual fiber of your carpet. Those dirty particles are then pushed to the surface and extracted and swept away. The Natural® contains no soaps, oils, or harmful chemicals so it's completely safe for your family and pets. Because Academy Chem-Dry uses 80% LESS water in our cleaning process, your carpets are completely dry in just 1-2 hours drastically reducing the risk of mold and bacteria in your home.

This process differs from that of steam cleaners throughout the Annapolis, MD area. They simply soak your carpet in buckets of hot, soapy water, and then attempt to suck it all back out. While this process does temporarily clean your carpets, it doesn't leave your home better than they found it. Because they use soap, which contains oil, it's impossible to get all the soap out of your carpets, so it leaves behind a layer of sticky residue. This residue will collect dirt much quicker, leaving you to have to call them back to come and clean again sooner. In addition to this film, you are also left with soaking wet carpets, that will not be completely dry for around 24 hours. This moisture that's left at the base of your carpet is the perfect breeding ground for mold and bacteria and as well can contaminate the air quality in your home.

We at Academy Chem-Dry want to provide residents throughout the Annapolis, Maryland area with a better solution to steam cleaning. Our processes are proven to work, and we would love to help you maintain a cleaner, healthier, drier home.
