When looking for the best carpet cleaners in Milwaukee, it’s important to find a trusted company backed by local homeowners, with lots of expertise in cleaning various carpet types. Equally important is gaining insight into the cleaning process they use, as your carpets are a vital part of your home, and deserve proper care.


If you have babies or toddlers who love spending time on the floor or furry friends like dogs or cats, it’s essential to pay attention to the cleaning formulas and methods being used by a professional carpet cleaner. Making sure your loved ones have a safe and healthy environment for means choosing a carpet cleaning service that uses effective and family-friendly approaches.


How Our Carpet Cleaning Process Was First Developed

Chem-Dry is proud to distinguish ourselves from the competition with our patented cleaning method, known as Hot Carbonating Extraction (HCE). Developed over four decades ago by our company’s founder, Robert Harris, HCE remains at the forefront of advanced carpet cleaning techniques.


On a hunt for a better carpet cleaning method compared to the conventional steam cleaning at the time, Harris recognized that the key to lifting dirt and grime was in the power of carbonation. This insight drove him to develop and refine the HCE process, a technique still employed by Chem-Dry technicians today. At Nature’s Way Chem-Dry, we take pride in upholding this legacy and introducing Chem-Dry’s exceptional cleaning solutions to Milwaukee.


How Our Professional Carpet Cleaners Use HCE to Provide Outstanding Results

Our HCE process uses tiny carbonated bubbles to effectively loosen compacted soil from carpet fibers, setting aside the drawbacks associated with steam cleaning. Unlike steam cleaning, which involves the use of carpet shampoos or detergents that can be challenging to rinse out, our method utilizes minimal water. This means homeowners aren’t left with excessively wet carpets that take days to dry. The excess moisture from traditional methods can create a breeding ground for mold and mildew, not to mention the inconvenience of avoiding wet carpets in your home for an extended period.

Even worse, despite the extensive water usage, steam cleaners frequently leave behind a sticky, soap-based residue that attracts dirt and grime, resulting in dirtier carpets sooner than expected. This cycle of continual cleaning induced by steam cleaning prevents you from having  consistently fresh and clean carpets in your home.


In place of foamy shampoos, our HCE process uses a carbonated cleaning solution known as The Natural®. This solution doesn’t have harsh chemicals, soaps, detergents, and other potentially harmful substances that might affect both your carpets and your health. Instead, The Natural® features gentle ingredients inspired by Mother Nature, making it a safe and suitable option for families with children and pets, as well as individuals with allergies or other sensitivities.


During the HCE process, The Natural® works its magic deep within your carpets. The millions of microscopic bubbles in the formula effectively lift trapped dirt and grime from carpet fibers and near the backing, bringing them to the surface. After, our skilled carpet cleaners use extraction equipment to efficiently remove these contaminants along with leftover moisture. Our HCE cleaning method uses approximately 80% less water than traditional steam cleaning processes, which means you can get back to living in your home with clean and dry carpets in hours, not days.
