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.
Most companies would regard carpet shampoo cleaning as outdated. A more advanced cleaning method called deep steam cleaning (aka hot water extraction) has taken over and has been a hit due to its quicker drying time. This is why it can be a pain looking for companies that will still do carpet shampooing for you.
There are a lot of advantages to deep steam cleaning over shampooing. For one, it uses a piece of much lighter equipment. Another is the much quicker drying time. Before, you will have to wait a long time for carpets to dry up as repeated rinsing was required to wash out thick layers of shampoo. While hot water extraction only uses steam.
Even after the carpet has dried up. It will still be left with a sticky feeling due to the remnants of shampoo that is left over.
This stickiness can actually attract dirt quite easily so it’s quite counter-intuitive. Over time you can also get a yellowing stain like effect showing up on the carpet due to the nature of the chemicals that were used.
In current times, you’ll only find a company willing to do shampoo carpet cleaning if the situation really calls for it. An example of this could be deeply stained and dirty, grimy black carpet.
Technically, a situation like this could use a shampoo carpet cleaning. But even carpets in the worst conditions can effortlessly be rehabilitated with the modern deep steam cleaning.
