Once you’ve decided on clean and green dry carpet cleaning, you can then choose between our two dry carpet cleaning methods. Most people go with the Teri-Towel system because is costs less and leaves carpets virtually dry, ready to use in 1-2 hours. The HOST system is preferred by some for wool rugs and other Oriental rugs. Here is a chart for comparing our two dry carpet cleaning systems.
