Most of our calls for bookings end up in conversations about whether our carpet cleaning services include shampooing. This type of cleaning service used to be a popular method until around the 70’s decade.
Currently, a more advanced cleaning method called deep steam cleaning (also known as hot water extraction) has taken over carpet shampooing. Mainly because it dries up much quicker. This is why most companies consider washing a carpet with shampoo an obsolete method. Making it difficult to find information about it.
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 the carpets are clean and what seems like a lifetime has gone by for the drying to take place the carpet will feel like they have a sticky residue left over.
This sticky residue will only attract more dust and dirt to the carpet requiring it to be cleaned more often. You’ll also notice a yellowish stain on the carpet later as an effect of the chemicals used in the process.
In recent times, only the worst case scenarios call for companies to do carpet shampoo cleaning. For example, if the carpets are almost black with stains and grime has accumulated for years.
Generally speaking, the above conditions can justify the use of shampoo cleaning method. But nonetheless, even carpets in such state can easily be cleaned to a new like state with deep steam cleaning.
