Over the years, we have had many customers who have called us immediately following a "steam cleaning" nightmare. Such complaints included:
a soaking wet carpet
moldy, unpleasant odors
inconvenient wait times to reuse carpets
With the Host Dry Carpet Cleaning, customers enjoy
their fresh and healthy carpets IMMEDIATELY!
We offer dry carpet cleaning because it is superior in several ways. It leaves carpet cleaner, more sanitary and colorful. Our dry methods do not damage carpet and preserve stain-guard and other stain-resistant properties.
Here is a chart for comparing Dry Cleaning vs. Hot Water Extraction Methods
Hot Water Extraction Cleaning (or "Steam")
Uses more solution and leaves more chemicals in your carpet
24 Hour fans and ventilation
Extracted Cleaning solution goes into our storm sewer system - and into rivers and streams
Can push soil and stains deeper so they return over time (blooming)
“Deep cleaning” means solution is forced beyond fibers into carpet backing resulting in stretching & pad or glue, loosening bond resulting in raised carpet. Remaining moisture can host microbes and bacteria
Hot water can cause carpet to stretch
Hot water removes stain guard
Hot water solutions leave sticky residue, which absorbs dirt and stains. Carpets re-soil more rapidly.
About $200 – $400 per home but you may need to replace carpet sooner
