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.
In fact, washing a carpet with shampoo is already an obsolete cleaning method. This is mainly due to a more efficient method called deep steam cleaning (also known as hot water extraction) which dries up significantly faster than shampooing. That is why it can be a pain finding a company that will still shampoo carpets in modern times.
Deep steam cleaning is actually more efficient in a lot of different aspects. It is less complicated to use as the equipment is usually lightweight. Also, no more waiting for a long time to for the carpet to dry as it only uses steam whereas carpet shampooing would require thorough cleansing with water to remove excess shampoo layers that soaked into the carpet.
Once the carpet’s all dried up and looking clean, and after waiting for ages, the carpet will still feel like it’s got an icky layer of residue left.
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.
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.
