Hot Carbonating Extraction: The Secret to Cleaner Carpets

If you’re looking to choose the best carpet cleaners for your home in Santa Cruz, CA it’s not only important to find a company that is trusted by homeowners in the community and experienced with cleaning all types of carpets. You’ll also want to understand the cleaning process they will use in your home. After all, your carpets are an important part of your home and you want to make sure that they receive the best care.

Whether you have babies or toddlers who spend the bulk of their time playing on the floor or you’re concerned about the health and safety of your dogs or cats, there are a number of reasons to take a closer look at the types of cleaning formulas and specific methods a professional team will use to clean your carpets.

How Our Carpet Cleaning Process Was First Developed

At Chem-Dry of Santa Cuz County, we proudly stand out from the competition thanks to our proprietary cleaning process, referred to as Hot Carbonating Extraction, or HCE for short. HCE was originally developed by our company’s founder, Robert Harris, over four decades ago.

Harris was on the hunt for a better approach to cleaning carpets than the conventional choice at the time: steam cleaning. He realized that the secret to lifting dirt and grime from carpets could easily be found through the power of carbonation. This discovery ultimately led him to create and perfect the HCE process that Chem-Dry technicians use to this day. We’re proud to continue the legacy at Chem-Dry of Santa Cruz County and bring Chem-Dry’s amazing carpet cleaning solutions to Santa Cruz, CA.

How Our Professional Carpet Cleaners Use HCE to Provide Outstanding Results

By putting tiny carbonated bubbles to work to dislodge compacted soil from carpet fibers, our HCE process avoids the problematic aspects of steam cleaning. For example, steam cleaning is typically performed with carpet shampoos or detergents, which are difficult to rinse out of carpets. As a result, large volumes of water are used during steam cleaning, leaving homeowners with soaking-wet carpets that can take days to dry. This moist environment offers a warm welcome for the growth of mold and mildew–plus no one wants to avoid or walk on wet carpets for days.

Moreover, despite the extensive use of water, steam cleaners typically leave a sticky, soap-based residue that clings to dirt and grime. This results in carpets appearing dirty at a faster rate. Steam cleaning initiates a perpetual cycle of cleaning that prevents the enjoyment of truly fresh carpets.

Instead of sudsy shampoos, our HCE process uses a special carbonated cleaning solution. Our carpet cleaning solution is free of harsh chemicals, soaps, detergents, and other problematic substances that could have a negative impact on your carpets and your health. Instead, it’s formulated with gentle ingredients copied from Mother Nature. It’s a safe choice for families with children and pets, as well as those with allergies or other sensitivities.

During our HCE process, the cleaning solution goes to work deep within your carpets. The millions of microscopic bubbles contained in the formula help lift the dirt and grime that are trapped in carpet fibers and near the backing towards the surface. Then, our professional carpet cleaners use powerful extraction equipment to whisk away these contaminants as well as moisture. Our HCE cleaning method uses around 80% less water than steam cleaning processes, enabling you to enjoy clean, dry carpets within hours, not days.
