We still get inquiries from clients whether their carpets will be shampooed during the cleaning service. This type of cleaning method used to be a hit from way back until around the late 1970s.
In the modern times like in 2019 and beyond, shampooing a carpet is now considered an obsolete cleaning method. A newer method called deep steam cleaning (also known as hot water extraction) has been the new favorite due to faster drying periods. That is why it very difficult to find companies that still offer carpet shampooing.
Overall deep steam cleaning is better in many regards. The equipment is lighter equipment making it easy to use and the drying time is quite fast. In the past it took a very long time for carpets to dry as a thick layer of shampoo drenches the carpet and it needs to be washed out. It’s literally like turning on the washing machine for your carpet. Whereas hot water extraction just uses steam.
After a long wait, the carpet will be clean but you’ll still notice a sticky feeling of residue left over.
It will now become easier for dirt to accumulate on the carpet once it’s sticky therefore you’ll have to clean it more often. The chemicals used in the process will also give the carpet a yellowish stain in the future.
Most modern companies will only resort to shampoo carpet cleaning for the worst of situations. The carpet has to be very filthy, soiled with thick grime and almost blackened by stains for over a number of years.
Essentially, the above conditions are enough can justify shampooing your carpet. But, even for the worst cases like this deep steam cleaning can still easily restore your carpet too as good as new.
