As you may remember in part one of this blog post I told of a customer who was asking about the differences between steam cleaning and Chem Dry (low moisture cleaning) The following lists the pro’s and cons of each.
The pro’s and cons of low moisture cleaning are: Pros – The carpet tends to dry in about half the time or sometimes even faster, typical dry times range from 30 minutes to two hours. Some stains are prone to reappearing if left wet too long and low moisture cleaning can sometimes be an answer to this particular problem. Cons are that low moisture cleaning tends to only clean the top of the carpet leaving soils behind that are deep down in the carpet. Low moisture also has a harder time on heavily stained and soiled carpet. With low moisture there is also no rinsing involved so any chemicals used in the cleaning process are left in the carpet
The pro’s and cons of steam cleaning are: Pros – Steam cleaning will clean deep down into your removing the dirt and grit from the carpet along with the cleaning solutions leaving your carpet clean and chemical free. Steam cleaning does a much better job when dealing with pet stains and odors. Drink spills, oils, greasy traffic lanes all tend to come out better with steam cleaning. Cons are that the carpet will take longer to dry. Most typically dry times are between 3 to 6 hours but there are some circumstances where carpets may take longer to dry. Dry times will vary anywhere from 3 hours on up to as long as 24 hours depending a lot on the type of carpet cleaned, how heavily soiled the carpet is, outdoor weather and humidity, and indoor conditions such as humidity levels and airflow.
So which way do I recommend as your Pahrump Carpet Cleaners? It really can vary house to house. There are some circumstances that low moisture cleaning is appropriate but more times than not steam cleaning is recommended. We generally recommend steam cleaning over low moisture cleaning but at Todd’s Cleaning Service where you find the best Carpet Cleaning Pahrump has, the ultimate choice is yours.
