I know, I know it's not technically "steam cleaning" vs "dry cleaning". The proper definition for the acronyms, HWE & VLM, is Hot Water Extraction and Very Low Moisture. But most customers understand it as steam vs dry. Sadly so do some carpet cleaners. Heck its in the name so no wonder the public still refers to it incorrectly. But we as cleaners know actual steam prob burn hole through carpets and you need some type moisture to clean with even if its a dry cleaning fluid. That all being said here's a little teaser video I did making a comparisons. watch for full video coming soon. What's your take on whats better fellow pro's? Here's mine...
