World’s Best Dry Carpet Cleaning Service

Green Seal Certified Encapsulation Carpet Cleaning

Angel Dry specializes in ultra-low-moisture encapsulation carpet cleaning.  We only use Green Seal certified products on your carpet, such as Crystal Dry® by Whittaker Systems.  Encapsulation is a process that uses physical contact to remove soil from fibers, suspending soil particles in a non-toxic polymer, where it crystalizes around the soil, literally encapsulating it.  High-quality encapsulation products like Whittaker do not leave a sticky film behind.

While other products claim to be non-sticky, Angel Dry knows the truth – we have tested hundreds of products in our laboratory and know exactly what properties and formulas work best.  Other low-moisture carpet cleaning services use cheap knock-off encapsulation formulas that clearly film into a sticky form when you let them dry out in a petri dish.

Angel Dry encapsulation products are Green Seal certified and form into crystals that clearly break away from the petri dish – they literally don’t stick to anything, except soil, when temporarily bonded to water molecules.  This is what makes Angel Dry encapsulation cleaning so effective.  Dirt gets trapped after being released from the carpet.  Then, it dries into a crystallized form, before finally being vacuumed up.  Wine, coffee, urine, milk literally disappears from your carpet.  And when we’re finished, your carpet is dry!

Changing the Way People Think About Carpet Cleaning

The Angel Dry Organic Dry Carpet Cleaning process is the latest innovation in the carpet cleaning & restoration industry.  Our Austrian-manufactured machinery uses counter-rotating pulsation technology to gently “scrub” millions of tiny Organic Dry micro-sponges deep into your carpet fibers.

The micro-sponges are humidity-controlled to ensure that just the right amount of moisture is used in your carpet.  Think of scrubbing your kitchen countertop with a damp sponge.  If you soak the sponge with too much water, you will end up with a pool of water on your kitchen counter.

Unlike hot water extraction (steam cleaning), our system does not force soil, contaminates, bacteria, and other microbial agents downward into the carpet pad and subfloor.

Moisture optimization in our highly absorbent micro-sponges ensure that soil extraction is efficient and highly effective.  When the sponges are pulsated and agitated into the carpet, their pliable, elastomeric properties gently penetrate deep into each carpet fiber, both scrubbing the carpet fiber and absorbing stubborn soil, contaminants, and microbes in your carpet.

Instead of flooding your carpet with hot water pressure (which only loosens soil to the degree that the stream of water is capable), our process actually penetrates the carpet fiber with multi-directional physical contact with our unique micro-sponges.  The big difference is the DRY process.

By reducing the amount of moisture to a minimum, we can better control how soil particles behave.  If soil is too wet, it dissolves, breaks down, or travels to new places, particularly with downward movement.  Physical contact enables Angel Dry to extract soil particles – from wine stains to coffee, to urine, rather than flushing soil around in the carpet.

There is simply no better way to have your carpets cleaned.  And the best part is, its DRY!

Steam Cleaning Process – How It Works

In the steam cleaning process, hot water is actually a vehicle for transporting water, harmful chemicals, particulates and microbes down into the carpet, essentially trapping these substances in the subfloor, carpet pad, and carpet pile backing.  When the steam cleaning extraction “wand” pulls up water, it can only remove a certain percentage of the liquid, dependant on the suction power of the technician’s equipment.

Essentially, hot water becomes the vehicle for “dirt” dispersion.  Much of the dirt is removed, while gravity and pressure force and trap the remaining water and dirt in your floor, along with whatever harmful residual chemicals remain in the carpet.

Have you ever walked on carpet that was recently steam cleaned and felt a slightly sticky texture on the soles of your bare feet?  Those are actually chemicals, some of which may be toxic to your family and harmful to your indoor air quality.  The technology that we employ is the only process that actually removes these chemicals along with the soil and other microbial agents embedded deep in your carpet fibers.  And dry carpet means – No Mold! No Mildew! No harboring of living organisms in your carpet!  No way!

Think of your carpet fibers as thousands of tiny vertical surfaces.  Now, imagine using a soaking-wet sponge to clean your wall.  Any excess liquid from the sponge will trickle down your wall.  In a similar way, steam cleaning causes water to run down your carpet fibers (yarn strands) to the carpet backing and underlayment (carpet pad).

This process causes dissolved dirt to literally sink into your floor before it has a chance to be extracted.  This is simply because contaminated liquid (dirty water) is simply too heavy for even the most powerful truck-mounted extraction systems.  Any remaining moisture will eventually evaporate, leaving the remaining soil, chemicals, and contaminants embedded in your subfloor, underlayment pad, and carpet pile.

During the evaporation process, the water actually transports contaminated water (which often harbors mold spores, mildew, and bacteria) up to your carpet surface.  In our industry, this common phenomenon is referred to as “wick back”.  This is why the most common consumer complaint of steam cleaning service is rapid re-soiling (or wick back), whereby dirt, spots, and carpet discoloration reoccur soon after the cleaning process.

A larger problem than wick back is the deep-down dirt and contaminants that remain in and underneath the carpet backing, which can become more difficult to extract after each steam clean.  Your carpet is dry and safe to use as soon as we leave your home*.  After we vacuum the sponges are biodegradable, organic, and are actually not harmful if ingested, thus making our process safe for your entire family.  This is an amazing difference with our process.  It is healthier for your carpet (hot water extraction deteriorates carpet fibers), healthier for your family (zero chemical residue & no harmful off-gassing which degrades indoor air quality).

* Depending on indoor relative humidity (RH) level, carpet fibers may be slightly damp after our process is completed.  We guarantee NO-SOAKED carpets!  For example, if you touch the carpet, you may notice a cool sense of moisture, but your fingers won’t feel any dampness, or in other words, no moisture will transfer to your skin.  Basically, your socks won’t get wet and you can start enjoying your floor immediately.  All furniture can go back, etc.
