There’s been much debate recently over what type of carpet cleaning is best – Zerorez carpet cleaning or traditional steam cleaning. Who knew carpet cleaning could be so confusing?! Here we take a closer look at both to see which one has the edge over the other and why. Check it out!

Zerorez Carpet Cleaning

At Zerorez, we use a 3-step cleaning process that includes the Z-Lifter, Empowered Water, and our patented Cleaning Wand. The Z-Lifter is a counter-rotating brush that lifts the carpet fibers and extracts dry particulate from the carpet (aka, those itty bitties that the vacuum cleaner leaves behind).

Next up is the star of the show – our Powered Water process. During this step, softened water runs through our Zerorez generator that enables us to clean and leave zero residue behind. We use our patented cleaning wand during the final step in the process which has a 180-degree blade inside the mouth that spins water and sucks it back up as it cleans.

Instead of the carpet fibers being flooded, they are rinsed (and the Empowered Water NEVER touches the pad of the carpet). This is what gives you the fastest drying times in the biz.

Traditional Steam Cleaning

Traditional steam cleaning goes back nearly 40 years and is considered the old school way of doing things. It’s a process that doesn’t actually involve steam but instead relies on high water pressure, high alkaline detergent, and hot water to clean.

“Steam cleaning” forces water, chemicals, and dirt through the base of the carpet, into the pad, and sometimes onto the subfloor. The water and detergent are then vacuumed out of the carpet where only 60 to 80% of the residue is extracted. Typically, the pad and subfloors remain soaked which is what leads to extremely long drying times.

Why Zerorez is the Better Choice…
