2) No residue is left in your carpet, making your carpets stay cleaner longer
3) Great for removing spots and stains
4) Spots won't reappear
5) Safe for pets and kids
6) Deodorizes carpet naturally
7) Dust mites are reduced up to 80%
8) Mold spores and pet allergens are reduced up to 90%
9) Lifts matted carpet
HOW DOES DRY SHAMPOOING WORK?
Dry shampooing is a simple 2 step process
STEP 1: Mist your carpet with a pre-spray and let it sit for 5 minutes. This starts to break down the dirt and oils in your carpet.
STEP 2: Sprinkle down the dry shampoo. Use the dry carpet shampooer to thoroughly brush the dry shampoo into your carpet. Wait about an hour. After, simply vacuum it up and you're done!
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
You will need 3 items: pre-spray, dry shampoo, and the dry shampoo machine. The price of all 3 items combined ranges from $69.85 - $74.85, plus tax. Here's how it breaks down.
1) The dry shampoo machine: $14.95-$19.95 per day, depending on which machine you rent (see below)

WET OR DRY? WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE?
There are two ways you can shampoo your carpet. You can use the wet method or the dry method. The wet method is where a machine puts down a liquid solution of water and shampoo on your carpet and scrubs it in. Then it extracts part of the liquid back into the machine. Most of the "steam vacs" on the market use this method, even though they don't actually use steam. The liquid that is left can eventually affect your carpet by potentially causing mold and bacteria. In some cases it causes your carpet to stretch. Your padding can also rot because it can't dry properly. Plus, the shampoo residue that is left in your carpet attracts dirt and your carpet can become dirtier quicker.
Since dry shampooing doesn't wet your carpet, it better protects your carpet and padding. It makes your carpets stay cleaner longer since it does NOT leave a residue. You can walk on your carpets while your waiting to vacuum up the dry shampoo. These products are non-toxic and are safe for pets.
