Shampooing a carpet was a popular cleaning method from way back until the ’70s. Although, surprisingly we still get asked by clients if their carpets will be shampooed.
A more modern cleaning method has taken over shampooing a carpet in current times. This is called deep steam cleaning or hot water extraction which has become more popular because it saves more time on drying. Because of this, not a lot of companies provide carpet shampooing nowadays.
Generally, we can say that deep steam cleaning is a better alternative to shampooing. One reason is that the apparatus is lighter making it easier to use. Another is that it is much faster to dry because the procedure only uses steam, verses shampooing which dries up much longer. Imagine it is like soaking your carpet in a washing machine to completely rinse off excess soap.
After all the whole cleaning process, you will still notice a sticky feeling left on the carpet due to the residue that the soap left over.
Grime will build up over time on the sticky residue. More carpet cleaning will be required over time. The shampoo chemicals will over time also give a permanent yellowish stain to your carpets.
It’s almost impossible to find a company that still does shampoo cleaning unless your carpet is in a very hopeless situation like it hasn’t been cleaned for years. There are a thick grime layer and deep stains underneath.
Overall, these conditions are enough to rationalize shampooing your carpets. However, it’s really not needed as there is nothing deep steam cleaning can’t do.
