Shampooing of carpets used to be a hit cleaning service until not later than the 1970s. The funny thing is almost every other booking inquiry we get end up with a customer asking whether carpets will be washed with shampoo.
Now, a more updated method of cleaning that’s based on newer technology is deep steam cleaning or hot water extraction. This service provides a much quicker drying time than carpet shampooing, which is why it is almost impossible to find companies that will still wash your carpets with shampoo.
Deep steam cleaning has a number of pros over carpet shampoo cleaning. First is that the equipment used is lighter, therefore, it is effortless to use. Second, because the service only uses steam, it takes less time to dry out compared to shampooing. Where the carpet will have to be rigorously rinsed to remove rich shampoo layers.
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 will cause more dirt to adhere to the carpet which is only counterproductive. Over time the carpet will also get yellowish blotches all over due to the chemicals used when shampooing.
Because of better alternatives, shampoo carpet cleaning is only called for on carpets with a really bad condition. Think thick grime, deep stains all over and almost untouched for years so all the germs have been pretty much left to bind very deeply into the carpet fibers.
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.
