Almost every other person who calls us asks if the carpet cleaning service includes washing with shampoo. This type of service used to be popular until around the 1970s.
For years, carpet shampoo cleaning has been an outdated type of cleaning. Thanks to deep steam cleaning (also known as hot water extraction) waiting for carpets to dry out has now been significantly faster. It is because of this that most companies prefer the latter and it is now difficult to find companies that still do shampooing.
Deep steam cleaning is considered a much better method in a lot of aspects. Lightweight machinery is used making it more accessible for general use. The drying time is also significantly faster as it only uses steam compared to shampooing which would soak the carpet with shampoo layers that would then require thorough rinsing.
After a long wait, the carpet will be clean but you’ll still notice a sticky feeling of residue left over.
Dirt will accumulate faster on the carpet now that it’s sticky giving you the hassle of needing to clean it more regularly. Yellowish stains will also be apparent over-time because of the behavior of the chemicals used in the process.
In today’s world you will only find a company using shampoo carpet cleaning in the worst of the worst situations. Imagine some carpet that is so heavily stained, soiled and dirty that it’s practically black and has been for years.
While the above example could be a reason to call for carpet shampooing. It is still undeniable that deep steam cleaning can still effectively restore carpets even of this state.
