Steam Cleaning & Carpet Shampooers

The most common forms of carpet cleaning are steam cleaning or hiring a carpet shampooer. You can also use a rental carpet cleaning machine as a cost-effective alternative, however, unfortunately, none of these methods are considered eco-friendly or green.

Carpet shampooers and steam cleaning services are not green because each requires excessive amounts of water throughout their process as well as harsh chemicals and pollutants, depending on the service.

Steam cleaning is the process of using soap to clean carpet. The soap is sprayed onto the surface of the carpet to attract dirt and contaminants. Once the soap has accumulated dirt, the carpet cleaning technician will then run their equipment over the carpet, spraying hot water to rinse the soap out of the carpet before attempting to then suck up the water, dirt and soap.

Unfortunately, the steam cleaning process requires a lot of water and rarely is all of the water successfully removed from the carpet, which can then lead to saturation and mold and mildew growth.

Green Facts, an environmental website, goes into in-depth detail on how much freshwater is available to different countries, including the United States of America where some states, such as California, have experienced significant droughts in recent months.

The site also cites the human impact on available water resources and how the use of water for human needs need to be managed better, emphasizing efficiency in water usage.

With that in mind, Chem-Dry uses 80% less water than carpet shampooers and steam cleaning services. How?

Chem-Dry Green Carpet Cleaning

The Chem-Dry of Auburn/Lincoln carpet cleaning process requires no soap whatsoever. Because no soap is required, there is no need to use excessive water to rinse it out of the carpet.

Instead of soap, Chem-Dry uses the power of carbonation in the form of The Natural®, a green-certified cleaning solution that can be found on the FDA G.R.A.S. list.

The Natural, Chem-Dry’s 100% non-toxic, natural, patented carpet cleaner, is one of the purest carpet cleaning solutions available and is the heart of the company’s cleaning process.

The Natural combines the perfect balance of Mother Nature’s ingredients with carbonating bubbles that lift the dirt up out of your carpet, providing you with carpets that are cleaned thoroughly and safely.

And because it contains no soaps, detergents, solvents, enzymes or other harsh chemicals, you can rest easy with Chem-Dry’s Natural solution, which is safe for your kids and pets.

Chem-Dry of Auburn/Lincoln uses The Natural throughout all of their carpet cleaning services, both residential and commercial.

The Natural isn’t the only green carpet cleaning solution available to Chem-Dry of Auburn/Lincoln. Classified as green-certified:

  • Stain Extinguisher
  • World Famous Spot Remover
  • Pet Odor Remover
  • Dut Mite Anti-Allergen
  • Traffic Lane Pre-Spray
  • PowerGuard
  • Final Rinse
  • Wet Foam Cleaner
  • Carpet Deodorizers
  • Benefect Decon 30

Most steam cleaners, carpet shampooers and DIY carpet cleaning rental machines don’t have green-certified proprietary cleaning solutions and instead depend on soap and harsh chemicals, which is not ideal for the environment or homes with children, pets and people who suffer from allergies.

Besides requiring a lot of water, soap also isn’t ideal from a green cleaning standpoint for another reason.

Just as it is hard for a steam cleaner to remove all of the water from a carpet, it is also difficult to remove all of the soap.

Soap left behind in carpet will quickly attract new dirt and embedded dirt and create a soiling effect on the surface of the carpet that appears as a dark, worn stain.

Soiling stains are extremely visible and will require professional carpet cleaning to remove. This means, the greater chance for soiling, the greater chance that you will need to hire a professional carpet cleaning service more than once a year which means even more water will be used throughout the year to clean your carpet.
