Steam Carpet Cleaning vs Dry Carpet Cleaning
Dry cleaning and using a steam cleaner are both popular carpet cleaning methods, but is one better than the other? Are there certain situations or applications that would be better for one over the other?
Steam cleaning isn’t chemical-free carpet cleaning
Some people believe that one advantage steam cleaning has over dry cleaning carpets is that steam cleaning is chemical-free and therefore better for their health and the environment.
This is a myth. It’s completely false.
Steam cleaners aren’t steam-only cleaners. They also use some sort of a cleaning solution.
Dry cleaning doesn’t necessarily use chemicals
Another commonly believed myth is that all dry cleaning carpet cleaning uses harsh chemicals. Some dry cleaning carpet cleaners, like Heaven’s Best Carpet Cleaning, use all-natural cleaning solutions.
The bottom line is both steam cleaning and dry cleaning use cleaning solutions. If you clean your carpet yourself, carefully read the ingredients in the cleaning solution you use. If you hire a professional carpet cleaner, ask them about their cleaning solution.
Dry carpet cleaning isn’t actually dry
As long as we’re busting carpet cleaning myths, here’s another one… dry carpet cleaning isn’t actually dry.
The dry carpet cleaning method involves applying a liquid cleaning solution to the carpet. The cleaning solution breaks down dirt, dust, stains, and organic material. Then equipment is used to remove as much of the debris and cleaning solution as possible. So, there you have it, dry cleaning isn’t completely dry, but it is a lot drier than steam cleaning.
So, now that we have all the myths out of the way…
Steam carpet cleaning vs dry carpet cleaning
- Dry carpet cleaning uses a lot less water so it’s more environmentally friendly in that respect
- Dry carpet cleaning is usually completely dry within an hour or two vs 12-24 hours for steam cleaning
- Dry carpet cleaning often uses harsh chemicals, so before you hire a commercial carpet cleaning company, ask them about their cleaning solution.
