Chem-Dry vs. Steam Cleaning

Learn how Airport Chem-Dry carpet cleaning is different from the typical steam cleaner.

Not all carpet cleaning services are equal

When looking for a reliable carpet cleaner, it’s important to remember that not all carpet cleaning services offer the same quality. There are several crucial factors that distinguish a superior carpet cleaning process, which provides a healthier cleaning for your carpets and home, from one that saturates your carpets with large amounts of water and harsh chemicals. These factors demonstrate why our exclusive Hot Carbonating Extraction system at Airport Chem-Dry in Pittsburgh delivers a more profound, quicker drying, and healthier carpet cleaning experience compared to traditional steam cleaning services.
